Blue Thunder in Claremorris clinched a coveted All-Ireland title when it was announced as the official home to the best burger in Ireland for 2022.

The announcement came on Kepak’s fifth annual National Burger Day, which took place on June 23 last in support of the Simon Community. As part of the initiative, foodie lovers were encouraged to get out and have their say by voting for the nation’s favourite burger, while giving back to a great cause and celebrating Ireland’s amazing food service.

Over the last number of weeks, hundreds of Irish food businesses of all categories and sizes took part in the search for Ireland’s best burger, from popular fast-food joints to family owned-pubs, hotels, and speciality burger restaurants at the heart of Irish communities.

With over 450 burger outlets to choose from, Blue Thunder in Claremorris was awarded the title of the nation’s favourite burger. The popular burger outlet, owned by Joanne Byrne, has been a firm favourite in the town for 34 years and was originally set up by Joanne’s parents, Pat and Marian O’Malley.

Joanne credits Blue Thunder’s success to its top-quality burgers, commitment to using the highest quality ingredients and the dedication of its 15 staff, not forgetting their loyal local customer trade.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have won Best Burger at the National Burger Day awards and very grateful to our staff and customers for all their support,” she remarked. “Our selection of delicious burgers has stood the test of time and our four-ounce deluxe cheese and bacon burger, as well as our much-loved prime burger are firm favourites amongst our local customers and strong passing trade.”
