Coming to Dublin for the first time is exciting and intimidating. Let us take some of the pressure off by suggesting where to eat, drink and be merry.

Dublin is a Gemini of a city, by which we mean it’s both as small as a town and as diverse as a city. It is characterized by a close-knit community ambience that meanders along the banks of the River Liffey between the canals and along the bay from Bray to Howth. Renowned primarily for its pubs, Dublin now garners significant acclaim in the culinary realm. Though she is but little, she is fierce, surpassing expectations with a bit of everything, ranging from casual to fine dining experiences.
