The 2023 bonkers.ie Awards will take place in Dublin on 23rd February.

It’s become a much anticipated event in the business calendar but the wait is finally over; the nominees for the 2023 bonkers.ie Awards are officially in!

For the past two years, due to the pandemic, we were unable to hold our awards in person, but we're delighted to be able to celebrate in person and in style once again this year.

But before we get to this year’s nominees, here’s a reminder of what the bonkers.ie Awards are all about!

About the bonkers.ie awards

The bonkers.ie Awards is an annual awards ceremony which celebrates companies that have provided exceptional value and service to customers in Ireland over the past year.

The Awards are now an established part of the business calendar in Ireland and each year attract leading representatives from some of the country’s best-known companies as well as members of the media, politicians and special guests.

This year there are 16 award categories across a variety of sectors such as banking, energy, communications and insurance as well as the Grand Prix award, which is chosen by the judges from the winners of all the other award categories and comes with the title of 'Best Consumer Business'.

So, without further ado, here is the shortlist of companies nominated for this year's Awards!
