Irish beef has long been renowned as some of the best in the world but our steakhouses have grown and evolved to present the best of Irish while getting using more exciting cuts. Our steakhouses range from the old-school glamour of Shanahan's or Marco Pierre White to the new age excitement in Bear or Rustic Stone. Many of these restaurants also feature in-house butchers that ensure that their meat is dry-aged and of the highest possible quality, while others also combine their extensive meat options with some of the country's freshest seafood to create the surf and turf that everyone loves so much.
For something different try the wood-smoked grill at The Butcher's Grill or some of the rarer, yet still as tasty cuts that Bear specializes in. If you're obsessed with how your steak is cooked then opt for Dylan McGrath's hot stone cooking method in Rustic Stone and for ultimate decadence go for the blue cheese encrusted steak at Darwin's. Whatever your preference there are plenty of exciting and bustling places to enjoy a succulent steak and a glass of wine and hopefully this list will help you to choose what is best for you.
