A popular Dublin restaurant has posted on twitter about being asked whether it offers "influencer rates".

LaPeniche on the Grand Canal says it was surprised by the "cheeky" mail, saying it's a small business and that freebies or big discounts in these times are hard to justify.

The eatery says the person has over a hundred thousand followers and that they would have a photographer to take pictures of them getting on and off the canal boat.

However they wouldn't name the well-known social media user.

The post has garnered a lot of attention on twitter, with more than four thousand likes and hundreds of comments.

Ben from the restaurant told 98fm news that it's hard enough to stay profitable when they have less tables;

"In the past we would have done stuff and we would have approached people but these times we have very little tables to work with with social distancing and the last thing we want to do is give a table away for nothing, in a sense, or a discount when we have to pay staff."
