There’s even more reason to book a staycation in Northern Ireland this summer!

Thanks to a new government scheme, you can dine out and support local restaurants affected by the Coronavirus pandemic with the new Eat Out to Help Out incentive.

From 3rd – 31st August 2020, you can dine out midweek, Monday to Wednesday, and each person can get a 50% discount off their meal, up to the value of £10pp.

You don’t need to bring anything to the restaurant to avail of the discount. Just simply look out for participating hotels, pubs and restaurants displaying this logo, and make sure to book a table!

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.

Below is just a taste of some restaurants taking part and as more come on board we will be adding to the list.
