For the first time ever, this year's Michelin Guide is to reveal the names of the Irish restaurants which will receive a Michelin star at a live London event on 3 October.
The unveiling of new Michelin-starred restaurants is to coincide with the 2017 publication of the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland.
The Guide, which was first published in France in 1900, was created with the aim of advising motorists where they could find good food and accommodation as well as the most scenic driving routes.
Currently, the Great Britain and Ireland Guide recommends over 3,300 places to eat and sleep, including restaurants and pubs that have attained a Michelin star for the quality of their cooking.
Its editor, Rebecca Burr, said that this years edition would continue to reflect the changing culinary landscape of Great Britain and Ireland, adding: "The last 10 years have seen the emergence of a host of different types of restaurant producing excellent food under the guidance of extremely talented young chefs."
