Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Connected Restaurant’, Three Ireland is partnering up with Samsung once again to bring the Christmas magic to families and friends who will be apart this Christmas. Changing things up from last year, where Three connected families in Dublin and Syndey via live video streams around a ‘shared’ dinner table, this year’s Irish diners will be able to sit down to a nice Christmas meal with loved ones in across the Atlantic in New York.

Three felt that the USA proved the ideal location for this unique experience, as Ireland has a storied history of emigration to the USA with particularly strong links to New York. Opening for just three days from Friday 6th to Sunday 8th December, the Connected Restaurant experience will give New York based Irish emigrants unable to return home for Christmas, an experience with loved ones as if they were sitting at the same table, while over 5,000 kilometres apart.

Reservations can be made now online at where further information is also available. Places are limited so be sure to book fast.

Speaking at the launch Aislinn O’Connor, Head of Brand and Marketing Communications, Three commented “At Three, we understand the power of connection in creating and sharing special moments with loved ones near and far, especially at Christmas. With the Connected Restaurant, we want to bring the people who can’t travel home this Christmas, together with their families in a special way to share a festive meal and catch up with the ones they miss.”

“We saw an incredibly heart-warming response from families that took part last year and want to give more families the same experience. We’re excited to be bringing #TheConnectedRestaraunt back, this year connecting loved ones between New York and Dublin. We’re really looking forward to opening the doors to this special experience on the 6th of December.”

The restaurant will be located in As One in Dublin’s City Quay with its counterpart, R&D Bar, based in Manhattan, New York City.
