AWARDS & PRIZES

Good Food Ireland is an industry driven food tourism organisation which was established in November 2006. Many good food operators in a cross-section of establishments all around the island from restaurants to accommodation, pubs to food shops to cookery schools wanted to be recognised and endorsed for their commitment to using Irish, local and artisan food produce. 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.

We visited Diep above Findlater's. The food was amazing - the ribs as a starter is definitely not to be missed. The prawns were delicious too as where the mains. Service could be improved we waited in and around an hour for a bottle of wine as it needed to be chilled. There was no communication re a delay. If we had been informed, we could have ordered alternative drinks sooner, while we waited. This would have resulted in a higher score for service. Maybe this was a teething problem. The wine was great and definitely worth the wait.

I've always enjoyed my visits to Wrights Findlater's mainly because of their well-trained staff who are always friendly and efficient, their bar and restaurant menu which offers a reasonable choice at keen prices and because of the Howth village location. Arriving on a wind-swept, dark, dank early February Friday evening, we availed of their 40 euro two main courses and a bottle of white wine for two deal. Still slumbering following the long Christmas break there was a reasonable gathering of tea-time end of week customers either lining the bar or eating at tables. My partner had the pan-roasted Fillet of Sea bass with Butternut Squash Puree, Wilted Spinach and Buttered Baby Potatoes while I had the pan-fried Hake with Gambas and Asparagus on creamy mash with a chive cream sauce. I've had the hake dish a number of times here and really like it while the sea bass was well cooked and complimented by the squash puree and spinach. An enjoyable early evening sojourn and we'll be back.

Visited here having booked to use our menu pages voucher and we were delighted with the meal. The bar was quiet when we got there about 7pm mostly couples, we got starters to supplement the mains and brilliant choice on the menu. Went for the mussels followed by the hake and it was perfect. Well worth a visit and see you again.

Arrived here early Saturday evening on a extremely wind-swept dark November night. Quick drink in the bar before ascending upstairs to the restaurant - quiet on arriving but doing a brisk trade by the time we left. We were on a impressive voucher deal - 55 euros for a 3 course with bottle of wine for two. The staff are young but are impressively well-trained, efficient and friendly. I plumped for the duck liver pate with red onion jam, brioche and salad leaves for starter and my wife chose the pear and walnut salad. The starters were well presented, reasonably sized and enjoyable without being in any way sensational but they were good. For mains we had sirloin, chunky chips and spinach and Hake with Grilled Gambas, Mash, Asparagus, Chive Beurre Blanc. The steak had great flavour and the chunky chips were damned good while my Hake dish was impressively cooked and really hit the right balance. There was not enough room for two deserts so we shared an Apple and Cinnamon Crumble - This was all washed down with a standard Chilean Sauvignon Blanc. We left the restaurant around 8.00 pm for a stroll along the pier before returning home - By then the restaurant was humming along nicely. This is not great food but it is very good food and reasonably priced served up by a young but friendly and impressive staff. The elevated dining room also has fine views across the harbour - we will definitely be returning.

There for lunch nothing special. Would be nice to have menu you handed to you and told the specials. Menu put on the table and only when we asked what's was the soup we where told the specials. This is the second and last visit was there about 2 years ago and not much has changed just a little less busy

My husband and I ate here last Sat. We spent the afternoon out in howth and wanted somewhere quiet and away from the groups of people. We had never eaten here before but i'd heard good things about it. We decided to eat up in the restaurant as the bar downstairs was a little noisy and i'm so glad we did. There was only one other couple there and was peaceful and quiet. We nabbed a seat by the window looking out at the water which was lovely. We ordered a lovely bottle of white wine and decided to get the calamari for a starter. The Calamari was perfect, not too greasy at all, great taste and the seafood sauce they served it with was gorgeous! For the main I had the special which was the seabass with mashed potatoe, green beans and a bur blanc. My husband decided to try the pasta with chorizo and prawn with a tomatoe sauce. Both were just lovely. The fish was cooked perfectly and everything on my plate tasted great. My husband never eats prawns and he absolutely loved his pasta dish. The service was great, the food was a little slow coming out after the starter but it was worth the wait. Was the perfect ending to a lovely afternoon and I would definately eat here again.
