Counties Cork and Down have both secured six listings in the 2015 Michelin ‘Eating Out In Pubs’ guide.

They were followed by Clare, with four listings, and Mayo with three listings each.

Galway, Kerry and Kildare each received two listings with Dublin, Leitrim, Louth, Sligo, Tipperary, Westmeath, Wexford, Antrim and Wicklow each having one listing.

Produced by tyre manufacturer Michelin - this year’s Guide recommends some 590 pubs spread across England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland of which 70 are new entries and all of which are selected, first and foremost, for the quality of their food.

Noting that pubs are a quintessential part of Irish life and often the hub of the community, Guide editor Rebecca Burr said: “The standard of food being served in Irish pubs continues to reach new heights.”
