WIN: Dinner for two at West Restaurant at The Twelve Hotel

We have another wonderful prize up for grabs!


It's day twenty-one of the FOOD&WINE advent calendar and we have yet another wonderful prize up for grabs!

We know it has been an extremely long and challenging year, but luckily, the festive season is approaching, which means the FOOD&WINE advent calendar is back again. This month, we have heaps of prizes to give away (more on that, here) but today we're giving one lucky FOOD&WINE reader the chance to win dinner for two at West Restaurant at The Twelve Hotel in Galway. 

Keep scrolling to find out how you can win this magnificent prize! 

Wine at-home...

Whether you choose your wine using the 'pretty label' method or just stick to the wines you know, there's a whole host of amazing vintages, crisp chardonnays and rich riojas out there to be enjoyed. But with such choice out there, it's easy for even the most dedicated oenophile to wind up overwhelmed or in a rut.

Cue The Twelve Wine Club.

Designed to make your life easier by picking out the best bottles to suit your tastes and delivering them directly to your door for easy consumption. Along with their excellent Brown Bag cocktails and monthly cocktail club subscription service, the innovative team at The Twelve now have an online wine shop to browse for home delivery, and an intriguing new Wine Club delivering to you at home.

The Twelve Wine Club is a 12-month wine subscription service, designed to stimulate and develop your palate and broaden your wine experience, with a specially selected bottle delivered nationwide monthly complete with tasting notes. A 12-month subscription to The Twelve Wine Club costs €320 and will start in January. The first delivery will also include two wine glasses from West, making it a generous and stylish gift for the adventurous wine explorer in your life...or for yourself. Led by The Twelve’s irrepressible general manager and sommelier, Fergus O’Halloran, The Twelve Wine Club plans on getting progressively more adventurous on a monthly basis, as members grow in knowledge and appreciation. To buy an annual subscription for The Twelve Wine Club, click here. 

For those who don’t want to commit to a monthly subscription, there are curated selections from The Twelve’s award-winning and excellent wine list selected by Fergus available in the Wine Shop at The Twelve. Whether it’s the perfect red to drink with your Christmas turkey, an impressive pair of bottles from Spain to give as a gift or unusual Italian grapes to try over the holiday season, The Twelve has developed an impressive yet eclectic wine list.

Dine in

After nine very long months of constantly having to come up with ideas for dinner, buying in ingredients and doing the washing, it's about time you treat yourself and have your dinner cooked for you for a change. 

There’s nowhere better to treat yourself and dine in style than in The Twelve, the quirky and individual Bearna boutique beauty just outside Galway that has flown its own flag with style and passion since opening.

Indulge in some Westronomy with dinner for two in West, with its exciting menus showcasing the best the region has to offer. The Twelve Hotel has exceptional and innovative dining experiences at every turn. From the busy and buzzing gastro bar, The Pins, to traditional Italian classics plus locally-inspired choices from Pizza Dozzina with its magnificent MV Napoliforni stone oven, to gourmet goodies and perfect pastries from The Twelve Bakery - The Twelve has everything your tastebuds could ever possibly crave.
