Uber Eats is launching in Ireland on Thursday and will be powered by the same convenient and cashless technology that helps you get from A to B. Uber Eats connects users to dishes from top restaurants across Ireland, available in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway.

From this Thursday, Uber will launch their popular food app – Uber Eats – in four cities across Ireland. Starting at lunchtime on 8th November, people in Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway can use their phones to order their next meal at the touch of an app.

The popular app has expanded to more than 75 towns and cities across the UK over the last year and this marks the company’s first launch in Ireland. Already more than 30,000 people have downloaded the Uber Eats app despite the service not yet being available in Ireland.

The Uber Eats app enables anyone to order a meal from well-known brands and local favourites including Eddie Rocket’s, Leo Burdock and Brother Hubbard.

People in Ireland can download the Uber Eats app and order from hundreds of restaurants on their smartphone (available for iOS and Android), or by visitingubereats.com.

The app is powered by the same technology that helps you get from A to B and allows you to track your delivery and pay (and tip) using the same account you use for Uber. No cash required.

Here’s how to order using Uber Eats:

1.    Download the free app or go to ubereats.com to see all the restaurants available in your area. You can sign in using your existing Uber account or create a new one.

2.    Tell us your location – you can select your home, office or any other address.

3.    Find the perfect meal – browse local restaurants or search by cuisine type or dietary requirements to find exactly what your taste buds are asking for.

4.    Place your order – pick the items you want right now or schedule your order to the arrive whenever is most convenient for you.

5.    Track the progress of the delivery – get updates as your order is prepared and delivered to your destination. Enjoy!

The app is available every day of the week from 8:00am – midnight.

For local restaurants, the Uber Eats app means more business with additional options for delivery and thousands of potential new customers.

The Uber Eats app also offers flexible work opportunities for those with bikes or scooters, choosing when and where they want to work.

Peadar Golden, Head of Uber Eats in Ireland, said: “We’re really excited to launch Uber Eats in Ireland after months of anticipation. The fact that more than 30,000 people have already downloaded the app speaks to the big consumer demand for food delivery in Ireland. Now people in Dublin, Cork, Limerick, and Galway can get great food at the touch of a button delivered straight to their home or office. We’ve partnered with hundreds of restaurants, so there’s something for everyone’s taste.”

For a limited time, new customers can receive €10 off their first delivery (€15 minimum order). To redeem the offer enter the code ‘EATSIRELAND’ into the payments section of their Uber Eats app and click apply.
