NINE IRISH RESTAURANTS have retained their Michelin Star status from previous years but no new restaurants have received the award.

The list was released online by Michelin this morning.

Speaking at the launch of the Michelin Guide, editor Rebecca Burr noted that this year’s guide highlights what she terms “the richness and variety of Ireland’s restaurant scene, ranging from country pubs to classic dining rooms.”

It shows that the 14 new starts in the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2015 all went to restaurants in Scotland, Wales, Devon, Cornwall and London.

The nine restaurants that retain their Michelin Star status in Ireland are:
