Great place to have a tea or coffee after a long day shopping. Nice views out window of passing Luas's and always has a few papers for a good read. Also has one of the best loyalty schemes I've seen. Buy 4 hot drinks, get one FREE!read more
Eddie's is great for a quick bite to eat and for the young (and young at heart) looking for a step up from maccy Ds. This one benefits from being 10 sec walk from the cineworld cinema so an easy pre or post movie spot. Service was very slow when we visited though so we missed first 5 mins of movi...read more
Great spot for a coffee but it's lunchtime sambos is where it's at! Small in size but if weather's alright there are a few outdoor public seating areas around. Get in before lunch if you need a table.read more
Dublin Zoo... it does exactly what it says on the tin!
Like many others I returned after what is at least a ten year gap since my last visit, and yep, its still as much fun and excitement as when I was a wee bit younger. The place is twice as big now and most of the areas have been revamped (th...
Best cinema in Dublin if not in Ireland (or quite possibly the world!!!)
Lots of leg room and great to see the place back in business after a short break in transmission!read more
Baltinglass golf course is a real gem in the heart of wicklow. Less than an hours drive from Dublin it undoubtably has one of the hardest 1st holes of any golf course in Ireland. If you survive the 1st you're rewarded with a lovely short par 3 over water to an excellent green. Front 9 are probabl...read more
Great little spot for food and live music. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.read more
One of the best asian set menus in Dublin! Well worth checking it out. The pork belly salad is great and in case you're a bit squeemish, that's rasher type pork to you and me!
Pro: Value, decor, service
Great shop in town with a range of snacks and treats. Also has all Trinity touristy stuff such as tee shirts and hoodies.
Reduced price newspapers also worth a look.
KC Peaches is one of the few places you can regularly rely on for a great range of choice of fresh lunch options and decent value for the area. Only problem is that it's no longer a secret how good it is so queues do get quite long at lunch times. Definitely worth the wait though.read more
I've played a good few rounds of golf here and had many a meal in the restaurant. It's a great place with unbeatable views of Blessington lake and is a Mecca for golfers, hill walkers and fishermen/women.
Best tip would be to bring a good set of waterproof boots for the strolls along the lakes...
Tried this place out yesterday for lunch and it was surprisingly busy. Tried the Dublin Coddle, a rarity in the city these days and pleasantly surprised at the dish. Lots of other soups worth trying also but twists on Irish dishes worth trying.
Pros: Soups, decor
We did a ratemyarea voucher visit to this museum at the weekend. Very worthwhile addition to the Dublin cultural scene. You need to do the museum with a tour and I was told they hope to do these on the hour in the very near future. Not worth doing without the tour as it's the story of Dublin that...read more
Nice little Italian coffee dock with good quality food, reasonably priced for the area. Coffee a little too strong for my taste but decent quality. Bit off the beaten track but at least you'll get a seat. Used the ratemyarea deal to try it out and great value.
Pros: good value, small queues, m...read more
The best coffee in Dublin just moved into the southside of the city. I've been very impressed with the northside shop in twisted pepper but this new expansion is a slightly different take on a great product. The food was well priced and had the flair you'd expect to match the great coffee. Well ...read more
Tried this place out today for lunch. Great fresh paninis and good coffee. Worth a try if you are in the area. Only one outdoor table but indoor is homely and interesting place for a spot of people watching along the quays!
Pros: Value, food, location
Cons: Service speed, traffic
Great spicy chicken selection. A much welcomed addition to the northside shopping experience. Remember to order at the counter asap as queues build up quickly.
Pros: Spicy dishes, huge chicken selection, spicy corn on cob side
Cons: Prices Vs UK, Queues
It's still too early to know how this place is going to go. It's good in that it's got very few queues and loads of seating (especially downstairs). However, it still has no official menu and still has a way to go before it is completely organised. Small selection at the moment but expect this w...read more
Good place to drop into for a lunch. Also not too bad for the old pints. Maybe a bit pricey for students but that's not always a bad thing :-)
Pros: Location, staff, menu
Cons: Prices, queues
5€ for any of their range of noodles speaks for itself. Pretty small inside and a few seats outside. Food is good and seems to be pretty fresh from my visit. A deffo for the cheap and cheerful list!
Pros: Cheap, location.
Cons: small, can be big queues.
