Ready to #GoDark for Life Changing Sight Loss Services?

Dine in the Dark Ireland is a culinary celebration that will see 200  restaurants and 8000 diners #GoDark for sight loss in  November.

Dine in the Dark is a unique dining event, where guests are blindfolded throughout the full dining experience. Without their sight to guide them, guests experience complex tastes, flavours, and textures in a completely new and innovative way. Senses are heightened, altering taste, touch, smell and communication during the meal.

All funds raised through Dine in the Dark will support the National Council for the Blind of Ireland in providing life changing services to blind and vision impaired  people across Ireland.
