It's officially Dining Week in Ireland, a nationwide event with a great cause behind it.
That's right, starting the 19th April and concluding on the 28th April, Irish restaurants nationwide are participating in Dining Week. This new celebration comes in as hospitality begins to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.
Customers book their table through the Dining Week website, with a €1 booking fee going towards St Vincent de Paul. Bookings are available for tables of two up to tables of eight, with at least 25% coming off your food bill.
You can book your Dining Week table on Early Table. James Lenehan, creator of Early Table, saying this of Dining Week:
“It’s been a long and difficult two years for our hospitality industry, and we hope that DiningWeek is the kickstart that’s needed now. A small booking fee is required on the EarlyTable platform, but for DiningWeek, we decided to donate the fee to St Vincent de Paul given the great work they are doing to support the hosting of Ukrainian refugees”.
The Restaurant Association of Ireland and Fáilte Ireland support Dining Week. Adrian Cummins of the RAI says this of the initiative:
“Dining Week will encourage patrons to re-engage with local eateries and celebrate quality food and hospitality across Ireland.”

This is a great way to enjoy dining out in Ireland again, as well as support hospitality, and St. Vincent de Paul.
