8 great lunches in Dublin for under €10

They exist! And they’re delicious.

YESTERDAY, IRELAND WAS more than slightly scandalised at the price of this salad from Avoca in Dublin.

Yep, that’s €16.95 for a salad, for one person. Many despaired that Dublin was once again losing the run of itself (and in a way, it is) but do not fear. There are many places to get a good lunch in Dublin for under €10.

1. Falafel from Umi, Dame Street

Umi’s €7.50 lunch meal deals are eat-in only, but you can get the amazing sandwiches or falafel boxes to go for around €6. If you’ve never tried falafel before, you know where to go.

2. Soup and a wrap at the Market Bar, Fade Street

For €6.95, you can have yourself a sandwich and a nice mug of soup - or add €1.55 and take it to the next level with a bowl of chips.

3. A burrito from Burritos & Blues

Neon is a particular favourite of Asian food lovers in Dublin, and you’ll soon see why. For €9.95 you get to choose any main course, a drink, AND have a go on their Mr Whippy machine for dessert.

7. A torta from Pablo Picante, Clarendon Street

These traditional Mexican-style sandwiches will certainly fill you up – the Tinga torta with pork, black beans and salad is our tip for €5.95.

8. A sausage roll from Lolly & Cooks in the George’s Street Arcade

Not your average sausage roll – these babies are almost sinfully tasty for €3.50.

If all this fails, you can always get a chicken fillet roll for €2.99 and three regular sausage rolls for €1 in just about any deli in the city centre. There’s always that.

It looks like Hozier might have the most Irish backstage demands ever>
