Get ready for a unique gourmet experience as the team at Danu Restaurant at The Brehon will host an exceptional evening where diners will be invited to enjoy their meal blindfolded.

The Killarney ‘Dine in the Dark’ challenge takes place on Saturday, November 9. It is part of a national campaign promoted by both the Restaurants Association of Ireland and the National Council for the Blind.

Over 200 restaurants across the country will take part in this campaign by hosting a Dine in the Dark evening in November.

The three course evening costs €37 per person, with €10 going to the National Council for The Blind.

“The entire team here in Danu Restaurant are really looking forward to taking part in this fantastic initiative in aid of the National Council for The Blind. Our customers can expect a wonderful dining experience when the tastes, textures and flavours of food will tantalise the taste buds,” Sinead McCarthy, General Manager of The Brehon, Killarney, said.

Without their sight to guide them, guests experience complex tastes, flavours and textures in a completely new and innovative way. Senses are heightened, altering taste, touch, smell and communication during the meal.

Sight loss affects one in six people in Ireland, this event will bring people together to raise awareness and raise vital funds for NCBI.

NCBI is the National Sight Loss Agency in Ireland with services including emotional support and counselling, low vision solutions, assistive technology advice and training, rehabilitation training, large print, audio and braille library.
