Even though we're all still practising social distancing and most of us are working from home, we still want to help support Irish food and drink producers.
We've decided to help our readers #ShopForIreland so we'll be posting every day to highlight producers around Ireland. Get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions on who we should write about.
Easter Paddy Box
To spread a bit of grá this Easter, the good people at The Paddy Box have waived their postal charge so that you can share some goodies with those you love who are living abroad. The Easter Paddy Box, priced at €49.95, includes Cadbury eggs, Créme Eggs, Barry's Tea, Butler's Chocolates, a Cadbury purple snack and a bumper pack of Tayto crisps. Click here for more info.
Cliff Townhouse takeaway menu
Cliff Townhouse has launched a takeaway menu to ensure that those of us stuck at home can still enjoy their delicious seafood dishes. While the Cliff Townhouse dining room is currently closed, head chef Sean Smith and his team have created a seafood-based menu that can be ordered for no-contact collection at the St Stephen's Green restaurant - delivery can also be arranged at an additional cost. Dishes include fish pie, crab claws and tempura prawns, as well as beef Bourguignon, ham croquettes and more.
Voucher Connect, a voucher sales and management platform has created a new non-profit, non-revenue generating website to help combat the effects of coronavirus on Irish businesses. The website, saveourshops.ie, provides a list of businesses all over the country that offer gift cards, vouchers and prepaid services. Customers can then buy their vouchers through the site, helping to support businesses even though they're closed. Restaurants that Restaurants signed up so far include The Happy Pear, Delahunt ad Platform 61, but click here to see the full list.
