Top 5 Dublin Eats


I had a handful of preconceived notions about what Dublin was going to be like prior to visiting, but none of them included a vision of the Irish capital with such amazing food. After all, no one really goes to Dublin on St. Patricks Day for the food…that said, I have to say I was really quite impressed and after four days, I left extremely well fed.

What I did notice is that it was hard to find a consolidated list of recommendations – coffee was on one list, restaurants on another, hangover food on yet another – which made it tricky to find the cream of the crop.  Whilst Dublin is a small, walkable city and your chances of merely stumbling across somewhere yummy on your travels are pretty high, there’s something to be said for a neat and tidy list.

As such, having scoured many websites, apps, guidebooks and consulted friends, here are my top five eats in Dublin:
