They wanted to share experiences and be cooperatively marketed to the domestic and international tourist. Agriculture and Tourism, two vital economies for Ireland have so much in common and are yet so far apart. Through Good Food Ireland the industry from both these sectors share a common belief and come together as one. Good Food Ireland brings you the visitor or domestic consumer what we believe is the only way to get a true taste of Ireland.

Lovely room overlooking the Green and relaxed atmosphere. Food generally very good but at their prices - it is expensive - they are competing with the Michelin star restaurants and they are just not at that level. Service friendly but very patchy - had to ask for water to be topped up and also to go get our wines and refill our glasses! Nice evening but there are better places out there.

Was really looking forward to trying this place out. Was here for a girls Christmas lunch. Firstly we were put outside in the smoking area - in Dec!! Secondly menu very limited. Asked for another option on a starter & was given another dish made with the same ingrediants that was already on the menu. Coming to paying - they over charged us on wine & the number of diners. The extractor fan was blowing out to where were sitting. Drinks took forever to arrive & staff got pretty snappy when asked for water as we thought they had forgotten as it was taking so long! Will not be back.

I came here for a work lunch. The restaurant interior is very nice and the service is fast. However I thought overall the portion sizes were a little small and that it wasn't great value for money as it's a bit pricey. However the food was excellent and the staff were very attentive so we were well catered for.

We dined here as a couple on Friday last, we were greeted in the Hall by 3 ladies, a wee bit OTT, but perhaps they were expecting a big Party of people.. At 7.00 we were the first diners in the room, which was tastefully decorated for Christmas.. We ate from the a La Carte Menu, the tasting one was not mentioned or proffered when we were given the Menu and Wine List. Prices are pretty steep, but the food is excellent and if you can afford it, worth it for a special occasion. We were well served by our Irish and Mauritian waiters.

I love the Residence and have eaten here several times. The staff are amazing and the location and setting are a joy. The food is mostly excellent and for lunch it was great except for the Foie Gras which we thought lacked flavour. The lunch tasting menu was great with lots of nice surprises. I'm always trying to find excuses to get back again ! My only criticism really is that the wines are expensive.

I cannot understand the plaudits this restaurant gets and its Restaurant of the Year award. The food is good enough but not THAT outstanding. I was there in a small group for a post-wedding lunch. With only one other couple in the restaurant, the atmosphere was a bit flat. On to the food: the scallops with strawberry and cucumber gazpacho seemed ill-conceived to me - while the scallops were perfectly cooked, the strawberry gazpacho was too strong and, well, weird a flavour to go with them, and the cucumber lent nothing to the dish. There is a reason why scallops are not usually served with strawberries... it simply does not work. The smoked salmon with granny smith apple was nice enough - a kind of hachette of smoked salmon with julienned raw apple criss-crossed on the top - but I do not think the apple added anything to the smoked salmon. With both starters I felt appearance and novelty value were too high on the agenda. My main course monkfish was lovely - perfectly cooked and others enjoyed their mains too. Most of us had the tart tatin, which was lovely - a simple dish well done. I have to say too that the set lunch menu is a reasonable price for such good quality ingredients. On to the service - we were celebrating a very special occasion and the staff knew this - however you would never have guessed it. The main reason why I will never go back to this place is the coldness of the reception. While you could not call it unfriendly, you certainly could not call it friendly. The food waiters and sommerlier were of course faultless in their service, but the lack of warmth was truly awful. The most chatty they became was when bringing the hallowed dishes to your table and trotting out the words of the description from the menu that you had already read for yourself - a vaguely embarrassing ritual. I love good food but prefer fine dining with a more informal approach - this does exist, but perhaps less so in Ireland.

Lovely place for a special lunch. The menu's a little limited but you're not rushed in any way and the service is second to none. The staff on reception could be more helpful, especially since this is a private members club so most non members don't know the layout of the place. Perfect for a special occassion.

What an amazing experience! Food is stunning. Opted for the 5 course surprise menu and was allowed veto a few things I didn't want to eat from the menu which was great. It didn't disappoint. The waiters and sommelier were all very helpful. Can't wait to bring my husband here as this will be his idea of heaven. Great value also.

Myself and my partner booked Restaurant Forty One for a pre theatre menu before a theatre visit. Obviously this was an early booking but we didn't expect to find a table with children seated in the same room as us, not that we don't like children but they were a little noisy. The staff kindly moved us another table in a quiet and beautiful Georgian room and one with a view out onto St.Stephen's Green. A basket of bread was offered as we prepared to order, great breads too. As a vegetarian, I really dislike going for dinner when the offering is something I could cook at home, in this case I was not disappointed, I was offered four really nice options. For a starter we both had a really interesting aged cheese and vegetable dish, it was vegetables topped with a cheese foam and a crumble topping, I can't remember how it was described but the flavours were great together. A good selection of wines and price ranges. Main courses, we had venison and a shallot tarte tatin, both delicious. A side of potatoes was also served to ensure we didn't leave hungry. Desserts ranged from apple tarte tatin to a chololate delice and a cheeseboard. We ordered the chocolate and an ice cream selection both were great and really nicely presented. Coffee was wonderful, crema intact! Overall, a great experience and good value too.

Had a superb night out. Everything from the greeting to leaving was spot on. The prices are high but you are getting top ingredients in well thought out dishes, very accurately cooked and presented. Pretty much faultless. Service excellent. Room magnificent. I would unreservedly recommend for any special occasion meal. Worthy of inventing a special occasion just to go there.

Ate here a few weeks ago for a "treat" night out. Overall the experience was amazing and exceeded expectations. The food is excellent -best meal in Dublin for quite some time. To start I had seared fois gras and it was sublime. Didn't need the big hunk of sourdough but thats beside the point and I guess some people can't cope with fois gras on its own (when its things good though you really should't spoil it with bread). Hubbie had scallops which were also very good. For mains we had john dory (me) and duck (him). Dory was out of this world, loved the accompaniment of quinoa and squid ink -it was perfecctly balanced and not too overpowering. Hubby said duck was also excellent. Shared a lemon cream desert which was v. good. Lots lof little bits and bobs in between were gorgeous (in particular the pre desert was a lovely surprise and unexpected). Only two critiscisms would be that no1 our table wasn't fantastic and no2 I asked the somelier a question about wine and while he suggested a bottle, i would have preferred one or two more options (the bottle he suggested was more than we would usually pay for wine). Small issues though - next time I will request a "good" table and will make own decision on wine. Although Residence at the higher end of dining in dublin which is obviously reflected in the price, I felt it was good value for the quality and we have apready booked a return visit for another special occasion.

Dined very recently. The interior is lovely with a nice relaxed atmosphere. I couldnt fault a single thing. Service was 2nd to none. Courses came out at good intervals. Very nice wine list to choose from. The food is top class. Highlight for me was the Angus Beef fillet which was cooked to perfection. I finished with a cheese plate which had all the trimmings of fruit and walnuts on the side. It is on the pricey side but well worth it for the standard of food and service. Will definitely go again.

I went for dinner at this restaurant for the first time recently. There is no doubt, the setting is lovely, small rooms with a few tables in each rather than one large dining room. I did however find some elements of the meal quite disappointing. The amuse bouche was a prawn bisque I believe, with lots of tasteless foam on top. None of my party of four could finish the taster portion - it was incredibly salty, perhaps the tasteless foam was meant to balance this out, but if so it failed. The rest of the group seemed happy with their smoked salmon and crab starter. I regretted my choice of black sole, dublin bay prawns and brown butter sauce. The sole was overpowered by lemon juice or zest, hard to tell. It also contained a number of bones, which I was not expecting for the standard I had hoped for from this restaurant. The two prawns were particularly strange, though warm, they had the texture of raw prawns. I was unable to finish them. I thought the sauce the best element on the plate. That really shouldn’t have been the case! Playing it safe with the main course, I had ordered the fillet steak. This proved to be a nice tender fillet and cooked perfectly medium rare – something which is basic yet I have had a terrible run of luck in Irish restaurants! The slow cooked beef underneath was also well executed as was the sauce, but I found it strange that this was all served in a bowl. Another small gripe was that the waiters did not seem to be interested at all in topping up wine glasses. Three of our glasses had been dry for a few minutes before any waiting staff thought to fill them up. A pre dessert of a tiny creme brulee was good, considering I am not a lover of desserts in general. Had I not been quite full at that point, I would have considered a cheese board but this would have been a waste for me as one of the party had it and it was a choice of five cheeses from the trolley along with a whole host of accompaniments (peppered honey, walnuts, grapes, fruit jelly…) and of course all the breads for the cheese.
