It seems that with every passing week, a new restaurant opens its doors in Dublin – causing ripples of excitement through a city that loves nothing more than an out-of-the-box food spot. This is a city where you can order a platter of freshly shucked oysters at a food market, take an artisan pizza to the pub to enjoy alongside a chilled pint, or sit down for a two-Michelin-starred meal you’ll never stop telling your mates about. Forget the tired old tropes about Irish food being bland and unimaginative – that cliché is about as hackneyed as ‘Riverdance’.
The food you’ll find in Ireland is as good, if not better, than in any corner of the world, whether you’re after fat lobsters from the Sligo coast, or creamy mozzarella made with milk produced by a herd of buffalo in Cork. Stick with the best ingredients, and you can’t go wrong. Looking to stuff your face after day exploring this city’s innumerable brilliant attractions and things to do? These, we’d wager, are the best restaurants in Dublin right now.
