The 15 best restaurants in Dublin
There was a time when the dining scene in Dublin was far from renowned. But those days are well and truly gone—nowadays, there’s a seemingly endless array of inventive eateries spanning all tastes (and budgets).

We’ve narrowed down some of the best places to eat, whether you want to push the boat out with a Michelin star or simply enjoy a killer burger on a budget.
