Dublin and Kerry not only went head-to-head in the All Ireland SFC final. They've also gone up against one another in the 2019 Travellers’ Choice Awards for Restaurants.
On Tuesday, TripAdvisor announced the 10 highest-rated fine dining restaurants in Ireland and only two counties featured on the list.
While Rozzers in Killarney came out on top, improving from a seventh-placed finish in 2017 and a runner-up spot last year, Dublin dominated the list in terms of the number of restaurants recognised.
There are seven Dublin establishments in the top 10, compared to Kerry's three.
Pearl Brasserie on Merrion Street Upper was the top-rated Dublin restaurant and finished in second place, behind Rozzers.

"The fine dining restaurant scene is extremely competitive so for Rozzers Restaurant to have consistently climbed up the rankings year after year to claim the number one spot in Ireland is a huge achievement and is testament to the stellar job that the team is doing," said TripAdvisor spokesperson, Hayley Coleman.
