Welcome to The Sunday Times 100 Best Restaurants list for 2019, the definitive guide to eating out in Ireland. Each year it gets more difficult to compile the list, such are the standards being achieved in kitchens and dining rooms the length and breadth of the country.

To understand just how good the very best have become, take a look at the humble bread and butter on your side plate. There was a time when very little thought went into this. Bread was provided because it was expected, but diners didn't really expect restaurateurs to pay it too much attention. Far less did we expect kitchens to get creative with the staple that starts almost every meal.
