IT’S BEEN A good year.

This Portobello spot made a triumphant return this year, with head chefs Connor O’Dowd and Keelan Higgs helping to create yet another must-eat restuarant.

This restaurant has been open just a few months now to much buzz, getting a table around December was near impossible. If you haven’t already got a word-of-mouth recommendation, here it is.

Camden Exchange, Camden Street

Step in from the wind and rain and cosy up with us this evening! #camdenexchange Source: camdenexchange

This place is almost too hip to handle, but the cocktails and street food will please anyone. Think brisket, buttermilk chicken, tacos, and mezze boards and you’re getting a taste. This is even before all the amazing cocktails.

The Jar, Camden Street

This fancy cocktail bar in the site of the old Solas sells Base pizza. Only the best kind of pizza.

DeSelby’s, Camden Street

Gearing up for wine and dinner. We're open from 6-11 #deselbys #wine #dinner #seafood #terrine #pizzini Source: deselbys9

This is potentially the prettiest place in Dublin to have lunch. LOOK AT IT. It serves a delicious brunch and they open late for dinner Wednesdays to Saturdays.

Wow Burger

The #WowStaff are hard at work in our burger hut crafting the tastiest burgers this side of the Atlantic! And don't forget about the sides... The sides, it's all about the sides! Chilli Fries, Garlic Butter Fries and Crispy Onion Bits... Try one or try them all! Source: wowburgerdublin

Hidden upstairs in the Workman’s Club on Wellington Quay, this little burger joint is definitely a new contender to be Dublin’s best burger.

Bow Lane, Aungier Street

Helping to mop up the overflow of the consistently excellent Whitefriar Grill, Bow Lane promises the best in modern Irish fusion menu and the cocktails are pretty great too.

Klaw, Temple Bar

Hidden off Crown Alley, if you like seafood and haven’t been to Klaw yet, what’s wrong with you? They do delicious lobster and oysters that you can grab for lunch or dinner.

Delahunt, Camden Street

Camden Street really has had a makeover this year, hasn’t it? Delahunt is almost a year old, and tastes as good as it looks inside. The menu is constantly mixed up with new inventions, and it’s basically just a very exciting addition to the Dublin food scene.

Sweet Republic, Bachelor’s Walk


For dessert, of course. This sweet cafe opened back in August and has been pumping the city full of delicious sugar ever since. Think luxurious milkshakes, crepes piled high, and hot chocolates stuffed with Buenos and marshmallows.

Wigwam, Middle Abbey Street

@peferraz has gone wild on the mushrooms for today's special. #Wigwam

In the old Twisted Pepper site, this bar has turned itself into more of a chilled out space with emphasis on food. For lunch you’ve got Vice coffee and all its offerings, but at night, an alternative menu is pulled out and cooked right in front of you.
