The KPMG Irish Independent Property Industry Excellence Awards set the benchmark for professionalism and showcase the best that industry stakeholders have to offer.

The awards remain a beacon of excellence within the Irish property industry, promoting innovation, sustainability, and exceptional performance. The programme has been updated with new categories and criteria to better represent the diverse landscape of the Irish property industry. Through this adaption, the Property Industry Excellence Awards programme encourages wider participation and ensures that outstanding achievements are recognised at all levels.


Sustainability is a governing theme of the 2023 awards.

The awards program applauds targeted actions undertaken by industry stakeholders to improve environmental credentials and address local and global sustainability challenges that align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly #9: Industry Innovation & Infrastructure, Goal #13: Climate Action, and Goal #11: Sustainable Cities & Communities.
