The Michelin Star Winners for 2013 in Ireland

The Michelin Guide 2013 for UK and Ireland has been released amid a little confusion as their website released the results a little ahead of schedule and for a period of 2 hours, two new Irish additions were unsure if they had actually been given the prestigious "Star" Status! (New additions Update at end of post).

The two Irish restaurants are Galway’s Aniar and Dublin’s Locks Brasserie. The prestigious award is given to restaurants of extremely high quality and is a mark of a top-class, quality food and dining experience.

The list of Irish restaurants with a Michelin Star is:

Locks Brasserie, Protobello, Dublin - a new addition this year

Aniar, Dominick Street, Galway - a new addition this year

House Restaurant, at the Cliff House Hotel Ardmore

Chapter One Dublin

L’Ecrivain Dublin

Thornton’s at The Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin

The only restaurant in Ireland with 2 Stars is still Patrick Guilbaud in Dublin

The Michelin Great Britain & Ireland 2013 guide will be available in bookshops from 5 October at a price of €18.99.
