A restaurant in Blackrock village in Dublin has become Ireland's latest Michelin star restaurant. 

Heron & Grey serves "modern international cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere" with a regularly changing menu based on seasonal ingredients.

Andrew Heron, the owner and manager of Heron & Grey, told Newstalk Drive they have no intention of expanding.

"It holds 20, 22 - at a push it holds 24," he explained. "The meal usually takes two and a half hours, and nothing's going to change. We're going to keep it to same numbers."

It brings to 10 the total number of Michelin star restaurants in Ireland for the 2017 Michelin Guide, with the 2016 recipients retaining their stars - including the two Michelin star Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud in Dublin.

Two Belfast restaurants - Eipic and Ox - also retain their stars.

Explaining this year's decision, Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland editor Rebecca Burr said: “Every year we actively seek out new candidates whilst reassessing restaurants already in the guide. Consistency is key."

16 eateries in Ireland have also retained their Bib Gourmand status, which "recognises establishments offering good food at affordable prices".

  • Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud (two Michelin stars, Dublin)
  • Heron & Grey (Blackrock, Dublin)
