Dublin's foodie star continues to rise, with nine restaurants featured in the Michelin Main Cities of Europe guide.

The 2016 edition of the prestigious guide sees newcomer The Greenhouse join Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud (two Stars), as well as Chapter One and L’Ecrivain (both of which have one Star) on its Dublin line-up.

In the Bib Gourmand category for restaurants serving good food representing excellent value for money, five city restaurants are featured.

These include newcomers Delahunt on Lower Camden Street and Pigeon House in Clontarf. Others retained from previously are Etto on Merrion Row, Pichet (set to re-open in April) and The Pig’s Ear on Nassau Street.

Michelin's updated UK & Ireland guide, published last September, saw a total of nine Irish restaurants receive Michelin Stars.

They include House in Ardmore, Co. Waterford, Aniar in Galway and Campagne and Mount Juliet's Lady Helen restaurant in Kilkenny.

Produced by tyre manufacturer Michelin, the Main Cities of Europe Guide features over 3,660 restaurants and hotels in 44 cities throughout the continent, and is available in print form and also for smartphone and tablet use.

In total it includes 486 restaurants, with five new entrants receiving three Stars: Le Cing and Alain Ducasse au Plaza Athénée (Paris), Geranium (Copenhagen), The Table Kevin Fehling (Hamburg), and Maaemo (Oslo).
