Dublin was somewhere we had always wanted to go and why not? Who could resist the charming accent and bubbling excitement of the city? Having found a bargain ticket for £2 each on the ferry from Holyhead to Dublin I needed no more convincing – we were off!
During our time in Dublin, we did what we could to stay in budget all while exploring the culinary delights of the city. Here’s 4 Places To Eat In Dublin, Ireland;
Hard Rock Cafe
As with any new city, we always hunt out a Hard Rock Cafe – Dublin was no exception. We visited on and evening and was seated in a table of four very quickly. The staff were friendly and the food was fantastic, however as many before me have said the pricing was harsh. Unfortunately, I think this goes with the rest of Dublin.
2 cokes and 1 main meal for 2 people cost €41 despite having a military discount and the service charge was a rather low blow too. Luckily re-fillable drinks and a very, very good, large meal more than made up for it. The music and atmosphere as expected from Hard Rock was great and couldn’t be faulted.
Fresh – The Good Food Market
We stayed across the road in the generator hostel and visited this place a number of times during our stay. It has an amazing range of food for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We often had a €0.90 pastry to go on a morning and would stop in for a €5.90 noodle box on our way back to the hostel after a long day exploring.
The food was fantastic, the range was brilliant, unfortunately, all that contributed to the price. Dublin is expensive anyway, but I’d say this was 10% – 20% more than other similar establishments you’d find in the city centre. This was somewhat perfect for us as it was right opposite our hostel and was very convenient.
Having just arrived in Dublin we passed this place on the way to our hostel. The student deal for €6.95 grabbed our attention and did not disappoint. The biggest burrito I’ve ever had packed full of flavour and full of food alongside a can of coke. The staff were awesome and the prices even more awesome.
I had an absolutely wonderful breakfast burrito with a free coffee here on our final morning in Dublin. A little pricy at €6 but it was super filling and absolutely fabulous.
The staff were super friendly, and the seating within the EPIC building was fantastic. Just downstairs you can find EPIC – Irish Emigration Museum. Which is well worth a visit if you get the chance.
