ATF Insiders - November's Monthly 9 Giveaway

November's monthly 9 giveaway is live! From lunch at The Shelbourne to dinner in a magical Christmas courtyard, restaurant vouchers to cookie and olive oil subscriptions, our nine monthly giveaways is a small way to thank our supporters for letting us stay #ad, #collab and #invite free - and we hope you prefer things that way too.

Everyone signed up to ATF Insiders by midnight on Thursday 17th November will be entered into the draw, and winners will be picked and notified on Friday 18th November. Here's what's in this month's line up...

1) Sunday lunch for two at The Shelbourne

We've recently noticed Sundays having a higher dose than usual of the Sunday fear, but fear note, we've got the antidote. A three-course Sunday lunch with a bottle of wine for two in The Saddle Room at The Shelbourne will dispel any thoughts of work on Monday, and we're sending one of you off to try it out. We recommend a visit before the end of the year when the Christmas decorations and lighting will be out in force - a perfect way to start the festivities.

2) A €120 voucher for Indo-Chine, Dublin 4

Indo-Chine, inspired by South East Asian flavours is the newest addition to D4 (where Le Perroquet used to be), and we've got a €120 voucher to give to one of you this month so you can sample the 'Bo La Lot', whole sea bream with Asian slaw, and plenty of their Asian-inspired cocktails. There's a DJ at the weekends, and while dancing isn't essential, bringing someone who shares food is.

3) Two Tickets to Christmas in the Courtyard

Christmas is coming to the courtyard and by courtyard, we mean a glass mansion on the grounds of the Royal Hospital Kilmainham, from 24th November - 18th December. To celebrate the launch we've two tickets for one of their 4-course Christmas festive lunches (on Friday 2nd, Friday 9th & Sunday 11th December) designed by Michelin Starred Chef Danni Barry, with a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival. It will be an afternoon of fun, festivity, fine dining and live music from the Swingcats, and you can tell all your friends you were in a glass mansion... at the Royal Hospital Kilmainham. Check out Christmas in the Courtyard here.

4) Afternoon Tea for two at Carton House, Kildare

We've been dying to get a look inside the newly refurbished five-star hotel Carton House in Kildare, but one of you are going to beat us to it as we have an afternoon tea for two in the Gold Salon room to give away. We can confirm there will be buttermilk scones, clotted cream, sandwiches, sweet treats and most importantly a glass of champagne each, and if you're going just for the interiors, that's also a valid reason to visit. There are also vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian menus which can be booked in advance. Dates subject to availability and T&Cs apply.
