During the second week in November, restaurants across Ireland challenge their guests to #Dine4NCBI to raise awareness and vital funds for life changing sight loss services in Ireland. This immersive experience allows people to challenge their thinking around sight loss and the people affected by it. In NCBI we know that just because someone can’t see shouldn’t mean they don’t have a vision for their future. We are in the business of changing livers and are looking for great restaurants and people to support us in achieving this.

By Neven Maguire My enjoyment of food and cooking comes as much from how it looks as how it tastes. I realised that wasn’t the case for everyone when I was asked to judge a Junior Masterchef event that the National Council for the Blind ran in the midlands about a year ago. That was[…]
We visited Dine in the Dark ambassador Neven Maguire in MacNean House, Blacklion, Co. Cavan recently so that he could #godark himself.

Establish a “point of reference” at the table. This may be an object which you know the exact location and its distance from other item. For example, being aware that your glass is placed on your right-hand side, at the top of your knife. This will make it easier to navigate your way around.[…]
What happens when you remove one sense? Do the other senses benefit as they respond to the absence of another? When it comes to food and eating …. and let’s not forget wine, smells and taste are enhanced all thanks to those tingling little taste buds. While people with sight loss aren’t always able to[…]
