A Bit About Us

The Blog Awards Ireland are delighted to announce headline partnership with V by Very, Littlewoods Ireland’s very own exclusive clothing brand.

Now in their sixth year, the V by Very Blog Awards Ireland and are the biggest blogger event on the calendar In Ireland. The awards were taken over by Ashville Media Group in 2015 and were moved away from the traditional sit-down meal to a festival style awards, with a burlesque meets speakeasy theme, street‐style food and burlesque performances.

Since then, the awards have grown substantially and this year with a move to Duffy Circus in 2016 and now bringing it city centre to The Academy, Middle Abbey Street on Thursday, October 5th 2017.


Some lovely people have said some lovely things about the Blog Awards Ireland and what it has done for their blog and we’d like to share that with you!

Damian Shiels, Irish in the American Civil War – 
Winner of Best Personal Arts & Culture Blog 2015

“It was a great honour for me to be selected as a finalist in the Arts & Culture personal blog category at the 2015 Blog Awards. As my site seeks to highlight what I regard as forgotten Irish emigrants, it was especially humbling to have work on them recognised in the country of those emigrant’s birth. It will be a very long time before I forget the shock and surprise at hearing Irish in the American War being named the winner of the category at the awards night!

The night itself was a fabulous occasion, filled with great entertainment and a great crowd. The planning and thought that had gone into the event was clear to see, and I can’t commend the organisers enough for producing such an impressive show. If I am ever fortunate enough to make the finals of future blog awards (and even if I don’t!) I will certainly try to attend, as there are can be few better ways to enjoy an evening!”

Jill, MyKidsTime – 
Winner of Best Corporate Parenting Blog 2015

“Mykidstime was delighted to be named finalist, and subsequently winner, for Best Parenting Blog (Company) at The Blog Awards Ireland 2015. We liked being part of the awards ceremony – it was straightforward to enter and the communication from the team was good as we moved through the process. The awards ceremony itself was a fabulous night – the venue was perfect for the chosen theme, and there was plenty of great food and entertainment to help count down the time to the awards. MCs for the night moved things along swiftly and overall it was a well-organised and fun night.

Winning the award has really given our content strategy credibility and meant that our hard work has paid off; it has strengthened our relationships with partners and definitely cemented new business for Mykidstime. So far this year we have won Best Blog & Overall Marketing Awards at the OMIG Awards 2016, as well as being finalists for our blog at the Social Media Awards Ireland 2016 too, but the Blog Awards Ireland for us is the one to achieve as it is the national blogging standard to aim for.”

Siobhán Brady, There is Always Light at the End of the Tunnel – 
Winner of Best Personal Youth Blog 2015

“An electric atmosphere, great opportunities for networking and some fantastic cheesecake for dessert. Being part of the blog awards, especially as a young person entered in the youth category I felt as if I was accepted but the benefits were greater than just acceptance. I was encouraged to continue blogging, empowered to keep going and find my niche, where my blog could fit in and that has contributed to my blog going from strength to strength.

I was shocked when I won but absolutely delighted, to know my blog that began as a school project has developed and flourished into something which is recognised nationally is one of the greatest feelings I have ever experienced, knowing that my blog is good enough to win reinforced my passion for writing!”
