Four Irish restaurants receive Michelin Bib Gourmands for outstanding quality and value

Today, October 4, Michelin announced this year’s Bib Gourmand awards.

Ahead of the launch of the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2020, the Bib Gourmand distinction highlights restaurants which offer "good quality, good value cooking".

These restaurants are seen as highly recommended and approved by the Michelin inspectors who are always on the look-out for hidden gems.

“Our Michelin Bib Gourmand may be less famous than our Michelin Stars but this distinction has a big following among our readers. Chefs are proud to be able to offer great food at affordable prices and are striving to earn recognition for this," says Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides.

This year, across the UK and Ireland, 22 new Bib Gourmands were added in the 2020 Michelin Guide, bringing the total to 132.

Out of these 22, four were based in the Republic of Ireland.

These were...
