How will it change the way people think about Irish restaurants?
An interactive interactive map has shown how Irish restaurants are changing in the past five years, with some becoming more welcoming to people from outside their own communities.
The map, released by the University of Limerick’s Institute of Food, Drink and Culture, was created to show how Irish pubs are becoming more appealing to tourists.
The interactive map shows how the Irish pubs in Dublin and Cork have become more welcoming in the last five years.
The Irish pubs that are most welcoming to tourists are those with open dining tables, which have become less common in recent years.
These include the old, traditional pubs such as the Old Firm in Dublin, the traditional pub in Cork and the new, trendy restaurants such as those in Cork, Dublin and Limerick.
The study found that in the years up to 2014, the number of open tables at Irish pubs had fallen from 20% to 8%.
It found that open tables were not only less popular, they were more often found in restaurants than in traditional pubs.
The data also revealed that the number and type of food and drink served at Irish pub decreased.
The number of food choices at Irish restaurants has increased by over 60% in the same period, from 6% in 2014 to 19% in 2015.
The average amount of food served in Irish pubs has increased from 20g to 26g over the same time period.
“We need to recognise that open dining is a social phenomenon, so we need to understand why people are going to an Irish pub,” said Professor Andrew O’Connor from the University’s Food, Drinks and Culture Department.
“Open dining is an expression of social identity and a way of connecting to our social groupings.
The more you eat in an Irish restaurant, the more you have to do for social connections, the longer it takes to get home and the longer you’re on the train.”
The study was published in the Irish Journal of Public Health and Social Research.
The report also looked at the impact of changing food and beverage culture on tourism to the country.
It found the impact on the number or type of visitors to the UK from Ireland in 2014 was a small and positive one, with a net gain of 5% on the UK tourist market.
However, there were no significant changes in visitors from the US, Canada or Australia.
It was also found that visitors from Ireland had less interest in visiting the UK than other countries.
“There is no evidence to suggest that changes in Irish food and beverages, particularly those related to food and wine, will significantly change the overall visitor numbers to the United Kingdom in the coming years,” the report concluded.
