In today’s Irish Times, Conor Pope reports on The G Club, a new initiative from Georgina Campbell that offers reduced price meals to diners in fancy restaurants around the country. For a €75 sign-up fee, G Club members will get a membership card, entitling them to great rates in participating hotels and restaurants. Most of the offers involve getting the least expensive dish of each course knocked off the meal on selected evenings only (so, if there’s two dinners, just pay for one; if there’s three dinners, just pay for two), but there’s also deals such as “stay for two nights B&B and get the third night free.”
So far, restaurants that have signed up to the G Club include Fallon and Byrne, L’Ecrivian, Locks, and Dromoland Castle. I haven’t gone through the full list but I’m far too broke to have eaten in of these places. Boo! Still, I think this is a really attractive offer and a great chance to try out restaurants I couldn’t normally afford. And, as Pope points out, members who use the card just once should get their investment back.
