After a hugely successful inaugural ceremony last November, the STELLAR Hayu InstaStars are back, and this time we’re free of the pandemic and building on last year’s brilliant event.
Launching today, August 25th at Dublin’s Morrison Hotel, the same location which will host the biggest event in town this September 30th, nominees including Louise Cooney, Sophie Murray, Dominique Nugent and Tara Farrell came together for some breakfast and bubbles, celebrating the return of this year’s awards and to officially open the STELLAR Hayu InstaStars voting system.

This year, we’ve got some absolutely incredible sponsors on board, with Hayu returning as our title sponsor, as well as our official jewellery partner Pandora and official beauty partner Benefit back on board for another year of glitz and glamour. On the night, Ketel One Vodka and Gordon’s will be whipping up cocktails for our guests before they take their seats for dinner and awards, which will be hosted by 2FM’s Laura Fox.
