Top 10 Restaurants That Won’t Break The Bank in Dublin
We know that travelling can be hard on the pocket and sometimes you have to stretch the pennies a little further than you would like. So we have put together a quick guide to some budget eateries in Dublin that will give you a slap up meal and won’t break the bank!
There is nothing better to set you up for a day of Dublin sightseeing than a hearty breakfast. The Cornucopia Whole Food restaurant on Wicklow Street does an amazing range of omelettes, pancakes and even a version of the Full English for around 10 Euros including tea or coffee and toast! We think that sounds delicious. For a Full Irish breakfast and a great view try the restaurant in the Kilkenny Design Shop on Nassau Street. For just 5 Euros you can get four items plus tea or coffee and toast.
Low Priced Lunches
Munchies on William Street is the ideal place to pop in for a tasty sandwich. You can pick your bread type and style as well as a huge range of fillings and sides so you can eat well on a budget. Bewley’s on Grafton Street is a bit of an institution in Dublin and a great all rounder at any time of the day. We picked it for lunchtime as they have some tasty options including homemade soups and salads. The only problem is resisting the scrummy home baked cakes for pudding but they are well worth it if you can afford it. The Parnell Heritage Bar & Grill has a traditional Irish feel to it and the menu matches with favourites like Irish Stew as well as good pub food. For an Italian twist try Cafe Topolis on Parliament Street their lunch special is a fantastic bargain and the pizzas are truly excellent.
Deals for Dinner
After a hard day’s “touristing” you will need something to bring you back to life before hitting the notorious bars of Dublin. Never forget The Alamo they say, and they are right. This is a Tex Mex restaurant in Temple Bar that will have you going back again and again. The food is your typical Mexican fare of the chilli and enchilada type and it will certainly fill you up, and it even stays open late for drinking as well. For something a little more Irish try Arthurs’ just a short stumble from the Guinness Storehouse. They serve some really traditional Irish food like Beef & Guinness Casserole and Irish Stew as well as some more usual pub favourites – particularly recommended is Arthur’s Burger. If you are hankering for Chinese food then head to Mandarin House on Parnell Street, where you will get big portions of all your favourite takeaway dishes. Looking for Fish and Chips? Then Leo Burdocks is said to be the best place in Dublin. With the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Cruise and Mick Jagger all having eaten there you will be in good company.
