The Fitzwilliam Hotel, 128 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2
The food: Fine dining
One of the most talked about restaurant openings in Dublin for years, Glovers Alley saw Irish chef Andy McFadden, who'd won Michelin stars in London, return home to take over what used to be Thornton's in the Fitzwilliam Hotel. No expense was spared for the January 2018 opening, including when it came to hiring staff, who were handpicked from the city's best restaurants. It's one of the priciest dining options in Dublin, and all eyes are going to be on them come September 2018 when the new Michelin guide comes out.
