Restaurants, Bars & Cafes


If you want late bars– its here,  fun bars – its here! And if you know where to look you might even find a locals bar. Plenty of restaurants too, catering for pretty much every taste. Here are our picks, we have tried to avoid the obvious places:


  • The Vintage Cocktail Club – The cocktail one
  • The Liquor Rooms Bar – The “one to be seen in” one
  • The Working Mansclub – The live music one
  • The Porterhouse – The “They brew themselves” one
  • Bad Bobs – The late one
  • The Palace Bar – The famous one
  • Brogans – The locals one
  • Elephant & Castle – The chicken wings one
  • The Italian Corner -  The pizza one
  • Bunson – Our favourite one
  • The Queen of Tartes – The cake lovers one
  • Chameleon Restaurant – The funky one



It isn't just about a fabulouse place to drink and eat, there are some hidden attractions here to keep you interested!

  • Trinity College/Book of Kells
  • Meeting House Square – Free Concerts &  Weekly Markets
