Early Bird Dinner – Before a concert at the NCH

Posted on

The NCH is just a five minute walk away from Dax Restaurant; so we are a perfect location for pre-concert dining.

The NCH Summer Season is in full swing with many lunch time events, so its a good time to remind you about our pre-theatre / early bird menu.

Pre-Theatre – Early Bird menu bookings are accepted between 5:30pm and 6:30pm Tuesday to Friday; tables must be fully vacated by 7.30pm sharp to make way for later sittings. But that, of course is perfect timing for a perambulation to Earl’s Fort Terrace and the National Concert Hall.

Our early bird / pre-theatre menu is very competitively priced at €24.50 for 2 courses and €29.50 for 3 courses. It bears excellent on price comparison with the NCH’s own restaurant; and you can be assured of the quality of the food at Dax.

NCH Dates for your diary:

  • Friday 22nd July, 8.00pm RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra Opera Gala with Celine Byrne and Alexander James Edwards
