Dublin is the latest in a long line of capital cities to embrace the new dining culture that is The Supper Club. Also known as Secret Dining or Underground Restaurants. If you enjoy your food and have a sense of fun this could be for you. It's a work in progress so don't ask for a prospectus yet! We'll dine in our Club and make plans to eat in other settings like the Kings Inns, a castle, a visiting ship, a rooftop or country manor. We may also meet up with other Supper Clubs and invite them back to enjoy the RIYC experience.  Sign up now in the hall.
