Food Scene
There are so many good places to eat around here that it would be impossible for us to list them all but we have provided a small selection of some of the places we love - let us know if you eat somewhere in Dublin that you love and we'll add it to the list!
First off, they have a really amazing selection of beer - not the sort of beer you'd expect to find everywhere - the range is huge and spans the globe. The food is delicious and reasonably-priced and it's all served up with a smile. We really like the Scotch Eggs... give them a try!

Love Supreme is a gem. The simple décor creates an oasis of calm, their sausage rolls are sublime and their little cakes and croissants a perfect little treat with the best coffee about.

Slice is a sister café to Cake Café situated off Camden St. It's tiny but has an impressive lunch and brunch menu as well as gorgeous cakes and 3FE coffee. If you can find a space here it's well worth it - everything is made in house and it’s always fantastic. Try the Beans On Toast - trust us!

'Equality For All Pollinators' is what they say and this place is great. Pick up some local honey, or perhaps some vinyl or antiques... you'll find all sorts of things in this great shop which is really close to us. All their stock is local, environmentally-friendly and supports the local community.

Located just off Dublin’s largest public square, Urbanity is a small-batch roaster, speciality café, and all-day dining venue. They've been around since 2016 and are very popular. They use great quality, locally sourced ingredients to create wholesome, interesting, and delicious dishes. The menus are always seasonal and the food is always fresh; specials change daily and look out for the cake counter.

The food here is so good that we had part of our wedding reception here. It's not cheap but it's not too expensive either and the food is exquisite.

Drinks & Nightlife
Here we have gathered the places where we like to go for a drink. Some are close to us and others are in the city, some serve food and some don't but they're all well worth a visit!
John's favourite pub in the city. Also Whiskey Bar of the Year 2020 in Ireland. They have an absolutely enormous selection of whiskeys from around the world and the Guinness is nothing short of phenomenal. The best thing about the place, though, is the atmosphere and the service from the staff. If you're wondering what an Irish pub looks like in Ireland, you couldn't do much better than dropping in here for a drink. This is where we brought our wedding guests after we got married in 2016. There's little in the way of food but if you're really hungry, ask for a toastie (toasted ham and cheese sandwich). They're delicious.

A pub dating from 1833. Right beside Glasnevin Cemetery (hence the sobriquet 'The Gravediggers'). Lovely pints amidst a great, old-fashioned atmosphere. Well worth a visit if you're heading out to Glasnevin Cemetery.

Emma's favourite place to drink Strawberry Wine! It's a great place to go for drinks and food. You can sit in the bar and get absolutely delicious bar food or go to the dining area for a more formal meal. We highly recommend it!

Ahhhh what can we say about this place? It's a great pub - there are two parts to it - the front bar and then the lounge at the back - the best place to go is in to the back. There is a great mix of customers in the bar and usually some good music on the jukebox. The place is decorated floor to ceiling (including ceiling) with all manner of funky memorabilia and it's really well-worth a visit. During the week at lunchtime, there is an excellent food stall out the back of the pub and it's worth a trip for that alone!

Normally we recommend that people steer clear of Temple Bar - the prices are high and you don't always get the service that the prices warrant however this is one of the few exceptions - the food is good, there is live music every day from 3pm and there's always a great atmosphere. Ask for Ian behind the bar - he's a good friend and can even be spotted on our wall of wedding photos!

Parks & Nature
The Phoenix Park is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city and since the 17th century has been home to a herd of wild fallow deer. The park contains Farmleigh House, Dublin Zoo, Ashtown Castle (which was built in the 1430s) amongst much more. It's a great place to go for a walk or a run and you can hire bicycles at the park gates and cycle around for a day! The Furry Glen is a great place to go for walks and collect pinecones. Best of all, the park is a 2-minute walk from our house.

The Gardens were founded in 1795 and comprise a combination of formal planting, beautiful architecturally stunning glasshouses, woodland, indigenous native planting and one of our favourite walled vegetable gardens. There is no entry fee and there is a restaurant and café for when you need a break and some sustenance! There is a gate joining the gardens with Glasnevin Cemetery which is also worth a visit. You can walk to the Botanic Gardens from our house in about 40 minutes.

Arts & Culture
Glasnevin Cemetary dates from 1832 and prior to its establishment Irish Catholics had no cemetaries of their own for burying their dead. Given its age there are numerous interesting gravestones and markers to see and there are markers for the resting places for many notable figures from Ireland's history. The visitor's centre opened there relatively recently has been a great addition and a tour of the cemetary is very worthwhile if you have any interest in Ireland's history.

A really great place to see some Irish history. Great guided tours of the old prison. It's essential to book in advance though as the tours are always full.

Sightseeing
Lots to see and lots to do...
The number one tourist attraction in the country - you can visit the home of the world-famous pint of Guinness. There's a self-guided tour of the storehouse and spectacular views over the city from the Gravity Bar at the top the brewery. Lines get long in the summer so it's best to book in advance - talk to us if you need help booking a tour. It's best to go early in the day to avoid the afternoon crowds.

The tour of the old Jameson distillery is worth a trip - there's plenty of whiskey to be enjoyed as you take a step back through the history of Jameson in Dublin. It's best to book this tour in advance - especially during the summer months - as it gets very busy. Tours can be booked online but just ask us if you need some help!
