The Eat List

As you may have already gathered, I am a big foodie! I genuinely think about food before and after I’ve eaten, discuss it with friends and family, and share my photos and experiences on this blog and via my social network. But there are SO MANY more restaurants, cafés, bars and eateries I have yet to try – and so I have The Eat List. This is a collection of (mainly) restaurants at which I’ve always wanted to dine in, but have yet to visit. From those in my own city of Dublin, to those around Ireland, Europe and even further afoot. It’s rather like a bucket list, but for foodie places! Fingers crossed I can cross out the majority of these before I enter my half-century age. Have you visited one of the restaurants below or want to recommend one of your all-time favourites?? Why not let me know, or recommend a dish for me to try!
