Dublin’s city centre is constantly awash with new dining options and eateries pop across the city every week. If we focus on Dublin’s city centre though - in the case of this list spanning from Trinity College and taking in the Dame district, Temple Bar and the Quays on both sides of The Liffey - there are some great restaurants that range from high-end Michelin star, to mid-range and inventive, to budget eating with a difference. Whether you’re looking for an 8-course tasting menu or an entire chicken fried in buttermilk there’ll be a dining style that will match your travel plans.
Get a gorgeous view of the Liffey at The Winding Stair, a bookshop and restaurant that showcases great Irish ingredients. Get Michelin star treatment at Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, or the next best thing with tasting menus at The Greenhouse or The Pig’s Ear. For modern Italian cuisine head to San Lorenzo’s on George’s Street, modern Mexican next door at 777 or around the corner to Coppinger Row for delicious Mediterranean fare. For fish and chips with an upmarket feel take a seat in Bite and for next-level fried chicken it’s got to be Crackbird. That just leaves the steak lovers...and for them we have Fire.
