11 of the best places to get food after a night out in Dublin

Where to get a feed after a few drinks is serious business.

SOMETIMES THE BIGGEST decision of the night out is not what pub to go to, but where to get food after.

Yes, we’re talking about the best places in Dublin to grab some delicious grub after a night on the tear:

This legendary Dublin kebab shop is perhaps the pinnacle of post-pub dining this city has to offer. Its kebabs are known around the city as the finest you can get, and there’s a reason the queue is nearly out the door in its two locations of Temple Bar and Camden Street every weekend.

One of Dublin’s finest burger joints, Bóbós specialises in every type of burger you can think of – and its Wexford Street location does a serious amount of business late at night. Given it’s right beside Whelan’s and their burgers are nearly universally considered to be excellent – if you’re walking past it after a night out and fancy a burger you would be mad not to go in.

A classic Dublin chipper location just South of Camden Street below the canal, Aprile is well known to many who frequent that area of town on a night out. It serves up traditional chipper fare, but it’s been around so long it feels like a standard part of the night.

Super Miss Sue (chipper side)

Located just off George’s Street and across from P Macs bar, Super Miss Sue is split into a main restaurant and chipper to the side. It’s the chipper – open until 3am on Fridays and Saturdays – that provides sumptuous fish and chips (and also fish sandwiches) for munching down after the pub. Beautiful.



Handily located on Dame Street, Iskanders serves up kebabs (and Turkish grub) which can be perfect for a 3am bite. There is a reason it’s often packed out of it after midnight – so if you’re around there late, get yourself in and try one of the shawarmas.

Burritos & Blues

There are plenty of places that do burritos in Dublin these days, but not many of them hit the standards of Burritos & Blues. With two late-night restaurants – one on Wexford Street and the other on St. Anne Street – you would be hard pushed to find better quality after-pub grub.

Roma II

This is one for the midweek night out. Roma II is a long term servant of the Dublin nightcluber, it is always there for you – as it’s open crazy late every night of the week. Situated on Wexford Street, it serves up standard chipper food but never lets you down.

This is like another pub on your night out when you go in late – such is its busy atmosphere and general hubbub. People flock to it because of its central Camden Street location and the fact that you can generally get a table or a booth – and the kebabs are quite good too.

DiFontaine’s Pizzeria

The place specialises in delicious New York-style pizza on the South side of the quays – just on Parliament St in Temple Bar. Its location means there is a constant line of people waiting to get a slice or groups wanting to go in together on their monster 20″ full pizzas. A thin, tradtional New York style and excellent fresh toppings make this a go-to 3am spot.

Rick’s Burgers

At the corner of Same Street and George’s Street, this Dublin institution stays open really late and is a favourite of the after-pub diner. Obviously, given its name, its speciality is the humble burger so try one of those next time you fall out of the pub feeling a little peckish.

Probably not the finest exponent of Chinese food Dublin has to offer – but it’s the one that has plenty of locations and are open all hours. There are four locations dotted around the city centre – all serving up that tasty, tasty Chinese that your body craves at 2am (and only after a few pints).
