Just one restaurant in the Republic of Ireland has gained a Michelin star, while there was also one deletion.
The House (at Cliff House Hotel) in Ardmore, Co. Waterford ,where Dutch head chef Martijn Kajuiters is at the helm, gained a single star.
The addition takes the number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the Republic of Ireland to six, including Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud in Dublin, which retains its two stars.
Northern Ireland remained unchanged, with just one Michelin-starred restaurant - Deanes in Belfast.
