1. L Mulligan Grocer
This very traditional Irish pub serves up some of the most wholesome food in the city along with a huge selection of craft beers and whiskies. You can settle into a snug and enjoy restaurant quality food at affordable prices while mixing with some real locals.
2. Brother Hubbard
One of the best spots in town for brunch at the weekends but you'll want to get here early because seats go fast. The food is eclectic with Moroccan influences – if you don't try the brownie here you will never know what heaven actually tastes like.
This BBQ joint slow cooks meat for 12 hours overnight and then serves it up while you sit on real saddles and listen to awesome tunes and mingle with people gearing up for a night out. Super relaxed atmosphere with kitchen towels for napkins and food that’s meant to be eaten with your hands.
In the heart of the city this Japanese bar serves up amazing bite sized Asian food and wonderful cocktails, as well as having the best Japanese beer selection in Dublin. You'll find yourself having so much fun down here you might struggle to get up the stairs again on the way out.
5. Super Miss Sue
The newest addition to the list is an amazing creation that mixes a high-end fish and chip shop, gin bar, cafe and fine dining seafood bar. It’s somewhere to go if you fancy a really special night out sipping on amazing cocktails while eating some of the best seafood in town.
6. The Fumbally
Chilled-out cafe that feels somewhere between a music festival and an old library. They often show films, have informal talks or live music. Great place to work during the day with excellent free wifi, wonderful coffee and a whole host of yummy healthy food.
7. Bunsen Burger
Every city has a load of different burger options and Dublin is no different but one place stands head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to this classic meal. Bunsen put all the emphasis on the beef and serving up simple combinations that actually fit in your mouth in one go. Insane flavours and a quick turnaround that leaves you plenty of time to head into any of the local drinking establishments.
