- 1Duke Lane, Dublin 21 review
A cheap, no-nonsense sandwich bar in the center of town. Two things make this a better choice than the dozens of nearby convenience stores. It's a mom-and-pop operation (the Bolands), and they've got the best sandwich deal in town. If you're starved, short on cash, and not too picky (i.e., backpacking), this is your best bet.Popular with
- 222 Wexford Street (Beside Whelan's) City Centre South Dublin 22 reviews
Bobo's is the best gourmet-burger restaurant in town. It's a fifteen-minute walk from the centre, well worth it for the hike through the hip Camden St. area. Burgers here are a staple for visitors to the many local venues, including Whelans, which is right next door. The coleslaw will knock you out of your chair.Popular with

A Dublin institution, Bewley's is the perfect place to spend a few hours people watching from the upstairs balcony and windows, and observing the hours go by over a cup or pot of good coffee and a slice of cake. Always popular, always busy with tourists and local folk alike it's easy to see why it can be hard to ...Popular with

Located on the doorstep of Trinity, Cup is a great option for a coffee or lunch. Situated near to a number of chain café's, it beats it's rivals on coffee and food options. The barista's know their stuff, and make a great latte. The food is nice too, with a range of sandwiches, soups, and sweet treats on offer.Popular with
- 54 Clarendon Market, Dublin 2, Ireland2 reviews
Chipotle-style burrito bars have been springing up everywhere over the past few years, and this one is the best, or at least most reliable. Be prepared to wait in line for half and hour or more during lunch. They sell Pabst Blue Ribbon, the first I've encountered outside the States.Popular with

This place could make vegetarians of us all. It's probably unfair to describe vegetarian food in relation to meat and meat-eating, but I will anyway: the food is gut-filling, hearty stuff, the kind you'd expect from a Sunday roast. Except, of course, for the meat, but you don't notice that or care. Impressive.Popular with
- 840 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland5 reviews
One of the best meals we had on our trip. The Winding Stair is centrally located right near the Ha'penny Bridge. A small but cozy dining room will offer some expertly cooked local dishes. I was on a hunt to find John Dory (fish) and the meal came with some expertly sautéed crab claws, purple potatoes, and green beans. I ...Popular with

This is probably the largest club I have ever been to. It doesn't look that huge from the outside, however, once you are inside, you will just have to keep on going through one huge room after another to get to the dance floor at the back. And it is a lot of fun to go upstairs looking down at ...

OMG is all I can say. One of my most memorable experiences in Dublin was my first meal at The Pig’s Ear Restaurant (seeing how I LOVE food). I had their preset 2 course lunch special and had THE MOST tasty Irish Stews ever! The food and ambiance were stellar. If you’re going to splurg on a meal in Dublin, ...Popular with

I really like this café on Trinity street. From quiches to paninos & wraps to good coffee. The scones & homemade muffins are awesome, particularly the pear & vanilla & the apple muffins. It is quite small but the service is super fast.Popular with

Awesome! The ladies in here were so nice and helpful! We asked if they had internet, they did not, but the owner offered to point us in the direction of a cafe that did. But she did mention that the park next door also had internet so we decied to get one of their coffees and sit in the park ...Popular with

This traditional Irish restaurant is located in the Temple Bar district. Great atmosphere and excellent service. I enjoyed the Chicken and Smoked Bacon Boxty which is a free range chicken filet in a creamy smoked bacon and leek sauce wrapped in a traditional Leitrim Boxty (potatoe) Pancake. The beef stew was also amazing. This is a must stop for lunch ...

Brasserie Sixty6 is in a very good location with the friendliest staff I have ever seen in my life... Food is superb, I fall in love with the beef & duck among the main courses... Portions are big... It is my favourite restaurant in Dublin.
