TV presenter and globe trotter, Laura Whitmore, jetted into Dublin yesterday to launch the world’s first Connected Restaurant. Powered by the Three network and Samsung technology, this one of a kind restaurant will allow family and friends on opposite sides of the globe the opportunity to come together to share a Christmas dinner like no other.

Opening for just four days from Thursday 29 November – Sunday 2 December, The Connected Restaurant will welcome diners in Ireland and Australia with one half of the restaurant opening in Dublin and the other in Sydney. The true magic of The Connected Restaurant is that it allows family and friends who are over 17,000 kilometres apart this festive season to experience Christmas dinner as if they were sitting at the same table.

The experience begins from the moment guests arrive at The Connected Restaurant, welcomed by expert host Mateo Saina, they will be guided to their table where an exciting three course festive menu awaits. Visitors can look forward to plenty of unique surprises that only The Connected Restaurant could make happen.

Reservations for this truly special dining experience can be made now online at where further information is also available. Places are limited but the experience is fully complimentary to all guests who are confirmed for the experience.

This specially designed restaurant will be located on Clarendon Street in Dublin with its counterpart on Holt St, Surrey Hills in Sydney Australia.

Speaking at the launch Aislinn O’Connor, Head of Brand and Marketing Communications, Three commented “At Three, we understand that people use our network every day for creating and sharing their special moments with loved ones far and near. Christmas, in particular, is the time of year we all want to take time to catch up with family and friends but for many reasons not everyone can make it home for Christmas in Ireland. This is why we have teamed up with Samsung to create the world’s first Connected Restaurant. We look forward to opening the doors to this experience on the 29th of November.”

Linda Nolan, Head of Marketing at Samsung Ireland added: “Christmas is a hugely important time of year for families in particular. We are excited to partner with Three to create The Connected Restaurant which will highlight how families and friends can be together, no matter the distance, through Samsung’s innovation of connected technology. We look forward to welcoming friends and families through the doors to enable those special moments.”

Also commenting at the launch, Laura Whitmore said, “I’m delighted to team up with Three and Samsung to launch The Connected Restaurant here in Dublin which is such a unique and clever concept. My job often means that I have to travel for long periods of time so staying connected with family and loved ones is very important to me and I’m always on the lookout for new and innovative ways to do this. It’s great that with The Connected Restaurant, family and friends can create and share memorable experiences at one of the most important times of the year despite being thousands of miles apart.”
