Given how much attention St. Stephen's Green receives, the Iveagh Gardens don't get anywhere near as much love as they should. They're arguably a much better place to sit and hang out on a beautiful sunny day, because there's much more open space and grass to relax on (and non of it's fenced off ...read more
I bought a voucher for here for a guy's cut from RateMyArea, and it's got to be one of the best haircuts I've ever had!
Linda was lovely, chatting away to everyone. I don't enjoy the small talk that you get with most barbers, but she was just so friendly it was impossible not to get sucked int...read more
I used to go to the Brezel Bakery in Portobello when I needed some really good bread (or to get my muffin fix… jeez, that sounds kinda dirty…), but this one’s even closer to me and the food is just as good. I’ve discovered that these guys actually supply the bread to some of my favourite cafes to...read more
This is probably my favourite spot to stop off for some quick noodles in town. It's a bit cheaper than Yum Thai down the road, and while it looks a little more run-down, the food is actually just as good!
They do great boxes of noodles with a selection of meat and veggie options, or curry if w...read more
I went here for a meal of tapas, and it was absolutely delicious! Great big tables, great big portions and great big bottles of beer!
They had a delicious selection of food and craft beers, really nice decor and a fantastic atmosphere in the place. Once the meal was over we couldn't tear ours...read more
I've stayed here a couple of times over the years, it's one of my favourite spots in the South of the country! There's a really great sense of peace and isolation when you're staying here, which is funny, given how much stuff there is around to do (I highly recommend the wildlife park, if you've ...read more
I order from these guys whenever I'm feeling lazy, and they're one of the best fast food places around!
Their food isn't exactly classy, it's a bit on the greasy spoon side, but my God it's tasty! Their burgers are big and come with hefty portions of everything. Their hotdog comes with half a ...read more
The best Mexican food I've found in Dublin! (So far...)
The portions are generous, their menu is varied, the staff is lovely, and, of course, the food is delicious. Their burritos are like artillery shells of food, fired straight at you. It's a small miracle that I don't live closer to them, b...read more
I absolutely love this store, and I was so happy when they moved to a more central location. (That area's kind of becoming Dublin's Baking Quarter, actually...)
The new store is just lovely, and it's packed with absolutely everything you'd need to bake a cake, make a salad or-... well, I'll be...read more
I dropped in here for a hot chocolate yesterday and holy hell was I glad I did!
Whereas most places' idea of a range of hot chocolates is dark/white/milk chocolate, and maybe something with a shot of caramel, these guys have a whole menu page dedicated just to chocolate. They have some of the ...read more
I was never a big fan of Mexican food before I tried this place, but they really do some great stuff! It helps that they have some nice student deals too.
I love their Silver Bullet burrito! It's cheap, it's meaty, and it fills you for the rest of the day. What more could you ask for?read more
I dropped in here for a drink last night, partly because it was raining, but I really couldn't have been happier with how the evening turned out! I thought I'd just have one and then move on somewhere nicer, but actually the Swan was lovely!
There was an Ireland match on the TV, there was a su...read more
Really like this place. It's not as grand as Trinity or as huge as UCD, but there's a really nice buzz about the place, and it's lovely just to wander around. There's a good sized Spar, a nice little Hodges and Figgis and even a hair salon tucked away somewhere in the Hub.
They also have the ...read more
I love the atmosphere in this place! The staff are all lovely, and the food is absolutely delicious, but there's a real sparkle in the air here, and you can feel it as soon as you walk in the door.
I have to dock them a star because it's just a little more expensive than it needs to be, but if...read more
Can't go wrong with a café dedicated entirely to chocolate! They've got two branches, one on Bachelor's walk and this place, and they're both awesome! They don't just do one lovely hot chocolate here, they do loads!
There's a huge selection of different styles and although I haven't got anywhe...read more
I took my cousins here with a RateMyArea voucher and we all had an absolute blast! There were plenty of animals around for them to get frantic with excitement about petting, and I really enjoyed wandering around looking at all the different old farm equipment they had preserved.
It's a really ...read more
I've been in here a few times, and I've always been very happy with the food. They do lovely stuff whether you're sitting down for a proper meal of you just want to pick up a quick tart to snack on. I haven't tried their coffee, but I'm assured that it is one of the best in Dublin.
It's normal...read more
If you're looking for somewhere to source your comic books and D&D manuals, then this is the place. Forbidden planet has a lot of similar stuff, but despite being roughly ten times the size of Sub-City, it's probably got a slightly worse selection. And Sub-City isn't crammed to the rafters with p...read more
Forbidden Planet's easily the biggest store for the nerds and geeks of Dublin, but that's not to say it's the best, necessarily. It's a great spot, no doubt about it, but it dedicates the top half of the store entirely to nerdy toys. Which is fine, it's great if you're looking for a present for a...read more
It can be a little expensive (and some of the groceries can be VERY expensive), but you'll be hard pressed to find better food in the city centre. Whether you're looking have a great range of gourmet groceries, a sandwich, a cup of coffee, or a full meal, they'll be able to sort you out here. The...read more
