Dublin’s Chapter One was named as Ireland’s best restaurant in the final of the Irish Restaurant Awards 2022, which took place in the Convention Centre Dublin this week.
After a two-year break due to Covid-19, and battling a cost-of-business crisis that has hobbled recovery for many, almost 900 restaurant and hospitality business owners and staff celebrated at the event. 
Chapter One’s win continues the momentum for a striking evolution of the fine dining icon. Under chef patron Mickael Viljanen, it has received two Michelin stars and many critics feel it may become Ireland’s first to win a third.
The awards, run by the Restaurants Association of Ireland, saw Ahmet Dede of Dede in Baltimore, Co Cork, win the coveted ‘Best Chef’ prize.

Mezze in Tramore won 'Best World Cuisine'

Goldie in Cork took the gong for ‘Best Casual Dining’, while The Rusty Mackerel in Teelin, Co Donegal, was named ‘Best Gastro-Pub’ and Wexford’s The Sky & The Ground won ‘Pub of the Year’. 
The Awards, now in their 13th year, see nominations made by the public, with final decisions made by judging panels at regional and national levels.
