100 Best Restaurants 2020

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Since 1992, when the very first edition of the book appeared, John and Sally McKenna’s The 100 Best Restaurants in Ireland has celebrated, championed, and offered critical analysis of, the very best restaurants throughout Ireland, north and south. The McKenna’s 100 Best Restaurants is iconoclastic – it includes food carts, beachside shacks, and tiny rooms, as well as grand theatres for eating – and the list has consistently interpreted and defined what modern, creative Irish cooking is, who the finest, most creative chefs are, and what they can achieve. After almost thirty years, the 100 Best Restaurants in Ireland centum of great places to eat is as definitive and just as controversial as ever, and each year the new 100 excites controversy and comment, and a clamour to get to these great destinations.
