COOKERY SCHOOL REVIEW
It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the food in Aniar, the first of only two Galway restaurants to hold a Michelin star. I can still remember the first time that I dined there and I recall with sparkling clarity the tastes and textures of each dish that I ate that night.
DUBLIN RESTAURANT REVIEW
I have passed by Bang Restaurant numerous times but have never actually dined there. Determined to address this situation, I booked a table for an early evening dinner there a couple of weeks ago.

RANELAGH RESTAURANT REVIEW
It is surely a sign of the tide turning that villages are buzzing in January. Ranelagh has survived the recession in style yet I wasn’t expecting it to be as full of life as it was on a particularly chilly Saturday afternoon towards the end of the month.

DUBLIN STEAKHOUSE REVIEW
For a town with an ever growing population of over 68,000 people you would be forgiven for assuming Swords must be heaving with lots good quality restaurants. Sadly, however in our experience the latter is not the case, with many looking to its neighbour Malahide for their culinary treas.

HEALTHY BREAKFAST REVIEW
According to your Instagram feed, in addition to a dedicated fitness regime the only way to ‘make gains’ is to tote tupperware with you where ever you go, filled strictly with eggs, chicken breasts and broccoli, all of which must be boiled.
Spring is the perfect time of year to plan a mini break with your loved one. So often our romantic getaways are to foreign cities like Rome or Paris but Ireland has plenty to offer couples who stay at home.
