The recent rise in Dublin’s casual dining scene has seen budget eateries and early bird menus hit the city centre and beyond. Gone are the days when Dublin was considered so expensive that it was easy to be priced out of a good meal. This list is a mixture of low-cost, casual restaurants for burgers or burritos and more high-end restaurants that do great deals. You’ll find everything from tapas bars to fried chicken eateries and asian food with free ice-cream to sweeten the deal. The value is based on the amount of food you receive for your money and the quality of said food.
Whether it’s a pizza you’re craving, a high-quality Indian or to relax at a French-style café there is an option that won’t break the bank but won’t leaving you feeling short changed at the same time. With so many restaurants and cafés popping up in Dublin week-to-week it has become more important than ever to have your food keenly priced. As a result you’ll find more and more establishments offering flat-rate main courses, excellent early birds and fast-food favourites with higher quality ingredients but affordable price tags. It’s never been a better time to travel on a budget in Dublin.
