We’re delighted to announce that nominations for the annual National Consumer Awards are now open! The ceremony will take place in the Round Room at The Mansion House, Dublin on 27th February 2020 for a celebration of excellence in customer service and value.

As Ireland’s largest comparison and switching website, customer service and value is at the heart of everything we stand for. 

After three years of success with the National Consumer Awards, we have decided to once again celebrate excellence in customer service and value in Ireland with a black-tie awards ceremony.

The big night

The fourth National Consumer Awards ceremony will take place in the spectacular Round Room at the Mansion House, Dublin 2 on Thursday 27th February 2019. Comedian and podcaster Jarlath Regan will act as MC for the night and keep guests entertained over a three-course dinner. 

We are accepting nominations from all consumer-facing organisations in Ireland that love to go above and beyond for their customers. The closing date is Friday, 24th January 2020 at 6pm.
