No trip to Ireland would be complete without a mention of the mysterious Leprechaun. That’s why thousands of people flock to The National Leprechaun Museum every year, hoping to catch sight of the mythical creatures. (Note: there have been no confirmed sightings yet. Make of that what you will.)
Once you’ve done your fair share of hunting, you’ll probably be ready for some sustenance. We can’t bring you leprechauns, but we can tell you the best restaurants in North Dublin. Read on to find out more about these legendary spots.
Dublin is known to be a place full of storytellers and the food at the illustrious Chaper One is a tale in itself. As chef-proprietor Ross Lewis describes it: “It is part of a story that is still unfolding, but it will always reflect honesty and integrity because these elements are the very soul of our food…” From charred, cured mackerel with poached Carlingford oysters, to mouth-watering 64% warm felcor chocolate with malted stout ice cream, bourbon & charcoal crumb, you’re in for an unforgettable experience. Fun fact: Ross Lewis was asked to cook for Queen Elizabeth II’s banquet in 2011!
Continuing our journey through the North of Dublin, take a minute to admire the stainless steel of the landmark known as The Spire of Dublin or Monument of Light. On O’Connell street, Ian Ritchie Architects, inspired by the light of the Irish sky, designed one of the most visible landmarks in the city, stretching over 120m into the sky.
But back to the restaurants in North Dublin……
Before walking across the Ha’penny bridge on your way to the city centre, why not stop for a bite at Yamamori Sushi? Relax in the heated Bamboo garden, perfectly blending Georgian architecture with 19th century Japanese artwork, and Samurai artefacts. Have a taste of the Norimaki served with black zakkoku rice, rich in fibre and protein, giving you all the energy you need to continue your Dublin city tour!
When a restaurant in north Dublin is listed as one of the Top 100 Places to Eat in Ireland (McKenna’s Guide), you know that it’s be worth making a booking. Handily, you don’t need to make a trek as it’s nestled on Capel Street, one of Dublin’s most charming streets. Serving up mezze and feasting menus, this is a fantastic place to hang out with pals and watch the people of Dublin wander past. Wind down your evening with some of their drinks specials, including The Rosita prosecco cocktails, perfectly created for enjoying on your holidays. Especially when your holidays are in notoriously drizzly Dublin.
