Explore Northern Ireland’s world-class food scene with a brand new dine out for half price incentive

Dining out for half the price? Count us in.

If you have nothing planned for your staycation yet, you might want to head north – for some seriously tasty treats – at half price, even.

Right now, Tourism Northern Ireland is encouraging visitors to explore the region’s world-class food scene during their epic Ulster staycations with the Eat Out to Help Out scheme.

Starting tomorrow, August 3rd, and lasting until the 31 August, the Eat Out to Help Out scheme will see meals being discounted by 50 percent, 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 on the Government website - simply enter a particular 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 explains:

“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.”
