How to Spend 48 hours Eating & Drinking in Dublin

Breakfast Day 1. Bibi’s Cafe
Located in one of the inner suburbs of Dublin, this was one of our fave new finds of the trip! A beautiful little cafe serving serious coffee and really innovative healthy breakfast and lunch options.

Lunch Day 1. Fallon & Byrne
This is Dublin’s answer to Dean & Deluca in New York, although there are more dining options here. There’s a cafe at street level where you can grab something in among the fresh produce and cheese counter. Or you can head downstairs like we did for a casual bistro-ish lunch. Or go upstairs for a restaurant-with-tablecloths experience.

Dinner Day 1. The Winding Stair
This is a Dublin institution and I try and sneak in a visit on every trip. This time we were super lucky that my Irishmans sister and her partener shouted us an incredible dinner to celebrate my Irishman’s 40th. Love the use of Irish produce and big bold flavours.

Breakfast Day 2. Bibi’s Cafe
Seriously it’s that good! Go back and order the things you missed out on yesterday.

Lunch Day 2. Sheridan Cheesemongers
Love love love this place! Grab a selection of Irish cheeses and other picnic fare and head to St Stephen’s Green to enjoy!

Dinner Day 2. Pichet
If you happen to be in the mood for some French bistro inspired food with and Irish twist then Pichet is your place!

If you have more time…

Third Floor Espresso – a hole in the wall serving some amazing coffee.

Avoca Cafe – have outlets all over the place. Super delicious especially their salads.

Funbally Cafe – a quirky place with kimchi on the menu! One of those places that you walk into and see their cookbook collection and know you’re totally in the right place.

Fish & Chips from Leo Burdocks – seriously the goods!

On my list for next time…

– Whitefriar Grill
– L’Ecrivain
– Rustic Stone
– 777
