What to Eat in Dublin

No reviews, be the first!

Ireland might be better known for its national brew than its cuisine, but the Irish capital has come a long way since the days of corned beef and cabbage. A wide range of restaurants now line the capital’s streets, serving up a variety of international fare, but if you’re looking to sample some authentic Irish dishes the best place to go is the local pub.

The national dish is the hearty Irish lamb stew – a slow cooked blend of meat, vegetables and potatoes – and it’s still a staple on pub menus. Look out for other old-fashioned classics like champ (a mix of scallions, mashed potatoes and butter), colcannon (kale or cabbage mashed into buttery potatoes) or black pudding (a breakfast special made from barley and cow’s blood).
