Cork’s Market Lane Group of Restaurants has taken two of the top gongs at The Fáilte Ireland Employer Excellence Awards 2024. 

The group’s Elbow Lane Smokehouse & Brewery took the overall Award for Best Employer Food & Drink, and Goldie restaurant took the award for Best Employer Ireland’s Ancient East.  They were the only restaurants to win in any of the 14 categories announced on the night, and the only business to win two Awards.  

 The Awards Ceremony took place on Wednesday evening 17th April at Lyrath Estate in Kilkenny 

The Awards celebrate and spotlight Ireland's exceptional employers in tourism and they play an important role in highlighting the hardworking individuals and organizations that are committed to great employee engagement.  Aspiring to and maintaining high business standards are key to Ireland’s tourism offering, and these awards help attract employees into the tourism industry and to provide them with fulfilling, life-long careers. 

“We are honoured and humbled to have won at these Awards” says co-founder of the Market Lane Group, Judy Howard.  “Our team is everything” she said.  “They are the very heart of our operation. When we started on this journey more than 16 years ago all we wanted was to create a little restaurant with a big heart. Today we are 5 restaurants and a brewery, with a group of 8 owners who employ a team of 200 people, and our employees are still the lifeblood of our business. Empowering our staff with knowledge and skills, and trusting in their abilities are the essential ingredients in creating the warm, friendly, delicious experience that is the core of the Market Lane Group’s dining ethos.”
