‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ Is Back!

Monday October 12th to Sunday October 18th

Today, Wednesday 30th September, the Dublin City Business Improvement District in association with the Restaurants Association of Ireland and The Irish Hotels Federation announced details of  ‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ which will run from Monday October 12th to Sunday October 18th 2009 – so mark your calendar and start saving room for dessert as we embark on yet another culinary adventure!

For the second time this year ‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ will see many of  the city’s top restaurants offering special promotional rates of €25 or €30* per person for traditional three course dinner menus. From 7pm each evening, customers will be presented with a three course dinner menu at a set price of at least 20% below what the menu would cost outside Restaurant Week. There are over 50 restaurants participating in the initiative including Marco Pierre White’s Steakhouse & Grill, Fallon & Byrne, Bleu Bistro, Saba , Brasserie 66 and many more.

For the first time several of the city centre hotels are also offering customers a 10% discount off the lowest quoted accommodation rates. Hotels confirmed to participate in the initiative include the Westbury Hotel, Conrad Hotel, Westin Hotel, Jurys Inn Hotel Parnell Street, Hotel Isaacs and the Academy Hotel, to name but a few. Customers will not only have the chance to experience the culinary delights of the city centre restaurants but also be able to treat themselves to an overnight stay in some of the city’s top hotels.

Commenting on the event, Richard Guiney, CEO of Dublin City Business Improvement District said, ‘The inaugural ‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ saw over 17,500 people eating in participating restaurants during the course of the week with positive knock on effects for bar, retail and theatre outlets. The involvement of the Irish Hotels Federation adds another dimension to the initiative as it will open ‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ to a wider audience making it accessible not only to Dubliners but also to people living outside the city who want to come and experience Dublin’s vibrant culinary scene and soak up the city’s unique atmosphere. We want to encourage even more people to come into the city this October and experience this unique culinary initiative”.

‘Dine In Dublin- Restaurant Week’ will allow culinary enthusiasts to please their palates without draining their wallets, experience new gastronomic delights and discover new cuisines. A list of participating restaurants and hotels is available online at www.dineindublin.ie

According to Adrian Cummins, CEO of The Restaurants Association of Ireland , “We are delighted again to get involved in ‘Dine In Dublin-Restaurant Week’ as  it provides the perfect answer for diners who have been watching the pennies but long for a gourmet meal during these tough economic times. It is also a great way for participating restaurants to attract extra business during a typically slow time of year. The economy may be gloomy, but what better way to brighten your day than with an indulgent yet inexpensive night out on the town?”
