About Dublin, Ireland Restaurants
Long gone are the days when Irish cuisine would conjure up the image of hunks of bread and stew washed down with a pint of Guinness. In fact, despite the recession there has continued to be a boom in the restaurant trade and culinary circles have continued to flourish. In a recent survey in The Irish Times it was revealed that as many as 8 restaurants a week are popping up across the capital to cater for the ever-hungry population of foodies.
There is a good balance between traditional and modern, with more and more trendy restaurants such as Bear and 777 seeking to capture the ambiance of the restaurant scene in New York and London. However restaurants like The Saddle Room in The Shelbourne and Shanahan's On The Green still strike that definite tone of old-school glamour and opulence in their lush interiors.
Dublin's seaside position also gives it the advantage of having the freshest seafood and more restaurants both in the city and in the coastal suburbs are striving to create excellence out of this high-quality produce. Seek out restaurants such as Caviston's beside Dún Laoghaire or Aqua, overlooking all of Dublin Bay in Howth for unmatched quality along with stunning surroundings.
Whatever your tastes, every palate is catered for in this vibrant restaurant scene and a keen eye for price means that it is easier to afford great food in the capital.
