Kildare restaurant Aimsir, which is located in the Cliff at Lyons spa hotel, pulled off the impressive feat of being promoted straight to Michelin Guide two-star status after only opening its doors in May this year.

The Greenhouse on Dublin’s Dawson Street secured its second star while Variety Jones on Thomas Street picked up its first award to make it a two-star night for the capital.
