A dining website is aiming to make eating out a more affordable option for Dubliners, according to the people behind Early Table.

EarlyTable.ie launched last April 2022 with a Dining Week to encourage more people to eat out and to supporting the hospitality industry in the wake of the pandemic. 

Diners can pay €1 per person and secure a reservation with up to 50 per cent off their food bill, for up to eight guests, in their choice of hundreds of restaurants nationwide.

The platform also makes it easy for participating restaurants to quickly add availability and decide discount levels, encouraging bookings and generating income at times when it is most needed. 

According to the site, the average spend by EarlyTable diners, after discount, is €40 per person, when tables would otherwise sit empty.

There are now over 15,000 registered subscribers who can avail of everything from fine dining to fast casual and solo operations to large hospitality groups.

“We’re delighted to team up with Early Table. It has allowed us to open up to new customers who can come and experience the food and relaxed atmosphere that we have created here, in the heart of the city centre,” said the owners of Salamanca Tapas Restaurant.

“It is a great concept and we hope to continue and build our relationship with Early Table moving forward.”

Early Table was founded by entrepreneur James Lenehan, who commented:  “Consumers and restaurants alike have really embraced this concept.

“We now generate at least €100,000 a month for our member restaurants, which is revenue that might otherwise be lost out on.

“The lure of an attractive discount will always encourage people to eat out and EarlyTable makes it easy to make a saving by being flexible, while still treating yourself. It really is a win-win!”
