Hospitality Ulster Media Statement on the Michelin Guide 2017 announcement

04 October 2016

Commenting on the success of a number of Northern Ireland restaurants in the latest Michelin Guide 2017, Colin Neill, Chief Executive, Hospitality Ulster said today:

“We congratulate Eipic and OX on the news that they have retained their Michelin stars. Maintaining such a high standard in such a competitive industry is a difficult thing to do and they must be applauded for their hard work and dedication. It is also fantastic to see that six restaurants here have also been awarded the prestigious Bib Gourmand accolade.”

“Such awards send out a strong message to visitors and tourists that our restaurant scene is vibrant and growing stronger which is important in maintaining the 45,000 jobs of those who work in the food and drink service alone here in Northern Ireland.”
