Host & Company is Ireland's most experienced and successful hospitality, food and drink public relations company. 


That success is driven by an industry knowledge that is second to none. We use that knowledge, along with a respect for and understanding of the media who we work with every day, to get more effective ongoing exposure for our clients than their competitors.
 
Our team is trusted by some of the world’s biggest hospitality brands as well as local Irish food heroes, at home and abroad. We have spent many years helping hospitality and food businesses tell their stories and helping them find that precious balance between staying commercially successful and being newsworthy.


Our job is all about appetite —creating it, feeding it, satisfying it.

We may be grounded for now but we’ve spent the last 20 years eating up first-hand knowledge of food and drinks culture everywhere — from the world’s best restaurants, cafés and cocktail bars to markets, wine regions and food festivals. 

Bertha's Revenge Gin Ballyvolane Ireland

It's a big picture, wraparound approach at Host & Co.

Our first-hand industry knowledge helps our clients get ahead while keeping us credible with food and drinks media in this country and abroad.

Litfest at Ballymaloe Cork Ireland

Our place within the wider hospitality world gives Host & Co natural access to some of the country’s most respected industry influencers

From chefs, sommeliers and mixologists to producers and restaurant owners, those daily relationships we nurture combined with our creative thinking and context allows our team to put food stories and drinks brands in front of new audiences.

Ox Belfast and The Dead Rabbit

We work with the best

Whether it's introducing Bertha’s Revenge to the world, launching Slane Distillery or managing media relations for the coolest of pop-ups — like the NYC collaboration between Ox and the number one bar in the world, The Dead Rabbit. 

Blas na hÉireann Irish Food Awards

We're versatile, we're mobile, we're focused

We're just as happy relocating annually to Ballymaloe to manage national and international media for LitFest, working with brilliant Blas na hÉireann to celebrate the best of Irish food, or with Euro-toques’ excellent awards competitions. 

Rias Baixas Spanish wines

We work the length and breadth of the island of Ireland

Our work varies from having the busiest day of the year in the office on Michelin day or representing wine regions like Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Rías Baixas and Jerez through tapas trails, tastings, tours and talks. 

Midleton Very Rare Whiskey in partnership with Adare Manor, Ireland

We foster partnerships and create connections

Dave Broom's The Amber Light

We create strategy, we craft launches

Whether it's organising the first Irish showing of Dave Broom’s The Amber Light movie for media and influencers or putting the strategy together and managing seminal food book launches like Trish Deseine’s Home or product launches for Ballymaloe Foods and James Whelan Butchers, at Host & Co, you're in safe hands with your food or drink brand.
