Unique chance to dine out for half price across Northern Ireland

Enjoy world class cooking and produce with Eat Out to Help Out scheme

Tourism Northern Ireland is encouraging local people to explore Northern Ireland’s world-class food scene during their staycations with the Eat Out to Help Out scheme. There’s never been a better time to enjoy Northern Ireland’s outstanding restaurants, gastro pubs, cafés and other eateries after the government vowed to pick up part of your bill throughout August. And better yet, the offer is unlimited!

From 3 to 31 August, Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme will see meals being discounted by 50%, up to a maximum of £10 per person including children (alcohol and service charges not included), in a bid to give the economy a post-lockdown boost.

What do you need to do? Absolutely nothing! Just simply look out for participating hotels, pubs and restaurants displaying the logo, and make sure to book a table.

Participating restaurants will automatically have the discount applied to customers’ bills on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays during August. There is now a portal of participating restaurants available – simply enter your postcode and find venues within a 5 mile radius that are taking part in the initiative.

Tourism NI Experience Development Officer for Food and Drink, Gary Quate said: “During lockdown, we all had our time to shine in the kitchen, or otherwise! The people of Northern Ireland deserve some culinary repose and there has never been a better time to support our local industry.

“From Michelin rated restaurants to fantastic gastro pubs, the food scene in Northern Ireland is flourishing.  Our talented chefs look forward to serving up some of the best local produce that Northern Ireland is renowned for. The Eat Out to Help Out scheme is a fantastic opportunity for diners to embrace a giant taste of Northern Ireland.”
