THE BEST burger in Ireland has been revealed ahead of the country’s inaugural National Burger Day on Thursday. June 21.
After almost 17.000 votes were cast from around the country, it was revealed that the Hungry Moose in Kilkenny is home to the best burger in Ireland.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be named the home of the best burger in Ireland,” said Chris.
“After only opening the restaurant last year, we are truly speechless.
“We want to send a huge thank-you to all who voted and especially to our loyal and local customers for their encouragement and support.
“It’s times like these that makes all the hard work worthwhile!”
