It’s been a brilliant year for the Republic of Ireland, with 5 restaurants newly recognised with a Bib Gourmand. 3 of these are in Dublin, which were La Gordita, Amy Austin, and Lottie’s adding to the city’s already appealing dining scene. Around the country Cork and Kerry completed the success with Cork’s  Ichigo Ichie Bistro & Natural Wine and Dingle’s Solas restaurants bringing this honour to their region.   In Northern Ireland, Belfast restaurant HOME was the recipient for this part of the Island  This year’s selections are pleasingly varied, with culinary influences ranging from Spanish to Indian, although there is a key theme of small plates menus running throughout.

In the Republic of Ireland Cork’s, Ichigo Ichie Bistro & Natural Wine is offering well-prepared Japanese dishes. A new incarnation of the original Ichigo Ichie, this is a more relaxed and accessibly priced restaurant that comes with the bustle of contented diners.

On the west coast, make sure to visit the charming town of Dingle, not least to sample the delicious tapas at Solas. Spanish flavours mingle with Irish produce in dishes that have been given a fresh spin without losing their identity.

More Spanish delights can be enjoyed further up the Emerald Isle at Dublin’s La Gordita. The Irish capital has had a good year, with 3 new Bib Gourmands including this lively spot with authentic cooking. Within walking distance is Amy Austin, where the dishes take cues from all over the world and are accompanied by free-flowing wine on tap. Further south, in the suburb of Rathmines, is Lottie’s – a buzzing neighbourhood brasserie serving unfussy dishes packed with flavour.

In Northern Ireland, Home in Belfast has regained its Bib Gourmand thanks to a new chef and some terrific produce. The extensive menus include a host of delicious dishes at an attractive price, accompanied by friendly service and a welcoming feel.
