Dine in Limerick Week

Tuesday, June 1st 2010

Many of the top restaurants in Limerick and the Shannon Region will take part in the newest culinary adventure in the Mid-West:  Dine in Limerick- Restaurant Week.

The inaugural event, in conjunction with the Limerick leader, Live 95FM, Shannon Development and Limerick City Council will see some of the most popular restaurants in the city and region offering promotional rates and special evenings with a difference.

Dine in Limerick-Restaurant Week will offer diners unique culinary options with special promotional three course menus plus tea/coffee priced at €25 and €35- a saving of at least 20% on traditional prices!

Every evening, customers will be presented with a Special “Dine in Limerick “menu featuring locally produced top quality food with great dining options to choose from.

The event starts on Friday, June 11th and runs until Sunday, June 20th inclusive.
Padraic Frawley, chairperson of Dine in Limerick-Restaurant Week said the event will raise the food profile of the region and local producers.
“We want to actively promote Limerick and the Mid West as a region with quality food, wine and many great dining options to choose from,” Padraic explained.
“We also hope to attract new visitors, especially foodies throughout the weekend to promote food business through difficult times. We’re confident that the week will be a success with a pricing structure which represents fantastic value, particularly at the weekend,” he pointed out.

John Crowe, Limerick Development Division Projects and Promotions Manager, Shannon Development, said; “Shannon Development is delighted to support this wonderful Regional event which will help promote Limerick and the Shannon Region as a culinary destination.  The event will also boost Limerick’s growing reputation as a great city break destination, and provide yet another mouth watering reason to visit the City. This initiative, which coincides with the Special Olympics and is happening in the lead up to the Pink Concert and the JP McManus Pro Am, is further testament to the development of Limerick as an important tourism destination.  Shannon Development is already rolling out a marketing campaign to support the event. We would like to wish the Restaurants Association of Ireland and all participating restaurants every success.”
