This place feels like the TARDIS. I mean, obviously it’s bigger on the inside, but there’s also an awful lot of converse and stupid haircuts floating around. That being said, you probably can’t get a good drink in the TARDIS for love nor money, so I guess it’s winning on that account.
It’s a n...read more
If you're in the mood for something healthy and meat-free, then this is the place to go! They've always got a nice selection of stuff on offer and although the prices aren't amazing or anything it's always pretty reasonable. Best place in Dublin to head if you're feeling like behaving yourself an...read more
I love the Stage Door! Always one of the top places I head when I'm wandering around Temple Bar. It's a little Oasis of normality and calm in one of Dublin's nuttier corners.
The food's really tasty and the coffees are always good too, so it gets full marks from me!read more
One of Temple Bar's little gems, this place is a great spot to get a tea (or any other hot drink, for you coffee addicts out there!). The staff are friendly, the service is quick and the drinks taste lovely. There's a lovely little buzz about the place, not too quiet but not too busy either.read more
One of the best cafés around! They always do a really nice coffee and do some really lovely food too. I love their bagels! Highly recommend them.read more
We had some American friends of the family come over, so we thought we'd take them out of Dublin and show them a bit of the countryside. We went on the Cliffs of Moher tour and it was absolutely brilliant! The tour guides were great fun and really informative! I easily learned as much as our frie...read more
Absolutely love this place, it's one of the go-to spots for when I'm in town with friends and we're all a little peckish. The way you can all nip over to different places and each get food from a different corner of the world is pretty fantastic, and especially good if one of you's a picky eater!...read more
I got a take-away lunch from these guys and it was really tasty! Lobster roll with soup, and they were both delicious (even if the roll was a little on the small side). Mind you, the regular price for it was pretty expensive, so if it hadn't been on offer at the time I wouldn't recommend it. If y...read more
This has to be one of the nicest spots to sit and just grab a hot drink. It's the perfect place to pull out a book, sip a coffee (or a vanilla chai, which is quickly becoming my fav drink there) and relax for half an hour.
The staff couldn't be lovelier, and it rarely seems to be packed. I'm a...read more
This is one of a few good places to go if you’re looking for camera advice in Dublin. There’s a nice selection and the staff seem to know their stuff, but unless there’s a sale on chances are you won’t be finding many bargains in a place like this, compared to what you’ll get online at Amazon or ...read more
One of the few nerd Meccas in town, Sub city is probably the best place to go in the city if you’re looking for roleplaying gear. It’s got a great selection of comics which would put it on par with the much bigger Forbidden Planet (which dedicates far too much space to geeky toys) but the tightly...read more
I dropped into this place to grab a coffee with a friend and while I was a little disappointed that they'd run out of hot chocolate, they had a great selection of teas to pick from. They had some really, really delicious goodies too, with a peanut butter brownie being particularly delicious.
If you're looking for a coffee, this is the probably one of the best spots you can find in Dublin. Not only that, it's also a great place to spot some of Dublin's celebrities, who tend to hang out there (or what pass for celebs in this country). The food can be a little hit-or-miss (although it's...read more
It's the motherload of electronics! They've got a great mix of stuff that you really, really need mice, keyboards, hard drives, stuff like that) and things that you really, really want, but don't need in any way (USB turntables, walkie-talkies, metal detectors, and SO much more). They always hav...read more
I'd probably give this place three stars for the range of stuff they have here, which is pretty poor, but when they say it's a bargain they don't mess around, so if you're looking for something simple and generic then chances are you might find something worthwhile here. It's a bit of a coin toss...read more
I do like this store. It's not got an amazing selection, but it does have two things that book shops should always have: a slight mustiness and piles of books covering every surface. Seriously, if I can see any part of your table, you're not trying hard enough.
There's a lot of value to be fou...read more
There are two things you can say about this place: there are definitely books and they are definitely good value. Well, they're cheap, anyway, but I suppose "value" is in the eye of the beholder.
There's a wide selection of books here, but you won't find many bestsellers. I think they just get...read more
This used to be my go-to place for getting a haircut while in Dublin, and while I was generally very happy with the service it could be a little hit-and-miss, just because there seemed to be different barbers there every time I went in, so I never had the same person (but that's probably my fault...read more
This is probably one of the smaller GameStops in the city, and although it's got a decent selection of games (both new and second-hand), it's not what you'd call comprehensive. They rarely seem to much in the way of good value on display, although you can always get lucky, so it's probably worth ...read more

Budda-Bags might just be the single most comfortable thing I've ever nuzzled my cheeks into. They come in a great range of materials and sizes, but not prices unfortunately. They're all much more expensive than I can afford to drop on a beanbag, no matter how how comfortable it is, but if you're ...read more
