Blessed with prime local produce such as lamb, shellfish, cheese and smoked salmon, the city now has dozens of excellent restaurants, many of them highly creative with their menus.
The city’s multicultural population and a growing demand for quality and innovation have also shaped the food scene. As a result, like Dublin itself, today’s choice is nothing if not cosmopolitan.
The likes of the French-centric Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud (Ireland’s only two-star Michelin restaurant; it’s on Upper Merrion Street) and the Mediterranean-influenced Coppinger Row (on the street of the same name), which counts Beyoncé and Jay Z among its past guests, are just two of many that stand out.

These days Dublin also has an appetite for good coffee, and many of the city’s best cafes and bistros serve first-rate food in laid-back, informal surroundings.
Standout examples include WUFF (Benburb Street), The Little Kitchen (Leeson Street Upper) and both branches of Queen of Tarts (Cow’s Lane and Cork Hill), all of which are also good spots for indulging in another of the city’s great culinary passions: weekend brunch.
