The awards took place at the Malton Hotel in Killarney and celebrated the ‘significant contribution being made by retailers, city and county councils in driving standards’.
CEO of Retail Excellence, David Fitzsimons said: “We were delighted with the quality of entries received this year and the standard set was second to none.
“It is always difficult to choose a winner but Ennis is a standard bearer in driving customer excellence, hospitality and pride in their town.
“Ireland is renowned the world over for its warm welcome and hospitality to all.
“This is particularly evident in retail operations throughout every village, town and city in the country and Ennis demonstrates this in abundance. Ennis and Clare County Council can be proud of this achievement and the team at Retail Excellence would like to commend them for their very significant efforts.”
