We will be running our second annual Dine in the Dark campaign in November 2017! If you would like to register your interest in #Dine4NCBI please email: dineinthedark@ncbi.ie . With your support Dine in the Dark will raise much needed awareness and funds for people living with sight loss in Ireland!


Dine in the Dark is the flagship fundraiser for the National Council for the Blind!

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.


We would like to thank our partners and sponsors for their support in implementing Ireland’s first National Dine in the Dark
