Top three places to dine in while in Dublin

Stuck for things to eat in Dublin? Check out my picks on three Dublin spots for a relaxed, fun and indulging meal.

WUFF

WUFF is a locally owned, cosy neighbourhood Bistro serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and brunch at the weekends. The ever-changing menus and wine list are driven by creativity, innovation and the use of prime produce from Ireland and abroad.

During my stay in Smithfield for the Undergraduate Awards, I popped out of my hostel on a cold Dublin night to enjoy WUFF’s mind-blowing Sticky Date Pudding with salted caramel and vanilla ice cream (€6.50). Order it with one of their rich and indulging coffees and you’ll have the perfect night treat. Or – even better – try it with a Trouble Brewing Dark Arts Porter, perfect to match its chocolate flavour with its own coffee, chocolate and caramel after-taste. IMG_2739Address:

Johnnie Fox’s Pub

Situated in Glencullen on top of the Dublin mountains, Johnnie Fox’s is one of Ireland’s oldest and most famous traditional Irish pubs as well as the highest pub in the country. A 25-35 minutes drive from Dublin City centre, Johnnie Fox’s boasts a traditionally Irish menu of soup, meat and beer.

What’s special about the pub however is its traditional Irish music every night, plus on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Go in for traditional Irish songs (the metal-head in me got excited about “Whiskey in the Jar”, covered by both Metallica and Thin Lizzy), and don’t miss “Hooley Night“, dinner with Irish dancing as entertainment.

KC Peaches Bakery

The Undergraduate Awards spoiled us with the best food and drink in Dublin – including KC Peaches’ incredible cakes. Try their Oreo flans, their brownies or their mind-blowing carrot cakes for a guilty pleasure like no other.
