ATF Insiders - October's Monthly 9 Giveaway

October's monthly 9 giveaway is live! From an incredible five-star trip to one of the country's best hotels, chances to new Dublin restaurants, food and booze hampers, and tickets to take your friends wine tasting, 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 Monday 17th October will be entered into the draw, and winners will be picked and notified on Tuesday 18th October. Here's what's in this month's line up...

1) An Overnight Stay & Dinner at Hayfield Manor, Cork

It's no news to anyone that Cork's five-star Hayfield Manor Hotel is one of the country's best, but last week they won yet another gong - the Preferred Hotels & Resorts Quality Assurance Award in London, designed to celebrate excellence, consistency and best-in-class experiences in luxury hotels. This month one of our Insiders will be getting a chance to experience Hayfield Manor's famous hospitality for themselves, with a luxury overnight stay for two in a Superior room, dinner in fine dining restaurant Orchids, and breakfast the next morning. Dates subject to availability, T&Cs apply.

2) A €120 Voucher for 'A Fianco'

Calabrian restaurant Grano have given us yet another reason to head for Stoneybatter, with the opening of their sister wine bar next door, 'A Fianco'. With small plates, natural wines and just 16 seats, it instantly become one of the hottest tickets in the 'batter, and one of the best wine bars in the city, and we're sending one of you off to try it out with a €120 voucher in your pocket. You can use it in Grano or A Fianco, or start in one and end in the other. Either way we're sure it'll be one of the best nights you'll have all year.

3) A NOLA Boil Experience for four at Krewe

Krewe have just launched a new NOLA Shellfish & Seafood Boil, and we've got a table of four to give away so one of your can try it, along with a bar tab of €100 for a deep dive into their cocktails.. The Krewe Boil will feature all the Irish Shellfish & Seafood, including Langoustines, Prawns, Mussels, Cockles, Clams, Monkfish Cheeks and Cod, as well as smoked Andouille Sausage, boiled in a spiced Cajun broth with potatoes & corn on the cob. It's all shared in middle of the table, so bibs on & dig in. It's €100 (€25 per person) or €130 with Irish Lobster, and limited tables are available every Tuesday in November. Booking by emailing welcome@krewe.ie.

4) Irish Food & Drink Month At Home Hamper

It's Irish Food & Drink Month and over 140 venues around the country (including 80 in Dublin) are offering specially designed food and drinks pairings every day, all showing the best Irish beers, cider and spirits (read about where to get involved here).
