I'm off to Dublin with a mate next week and would appreciate any suggestions from the Irish folk on here of a nice restaurant to eat at in Dublin City Centre, doesn't matter if its a bit pricey as I want it to be special.

Also, any other suggestions of places to visit are welcome, though not the Guiness Storehouse!

Thanks

Mark

Peploe's, (yep, the spelling is right) 16 St Stephen's Green (01 676 3144) does good food and has a good buzz to it. It's around €60 per head including wine.

Gruel, 67 Dame Street, (01670 7119) is unstuffy and also does good food. Around €50.

The Tea Rooms, in the Clarence Hotel (U2's hotel) 6-8 Wellington Quay (01 407 0800) is classy, and the food is good too, but a little pricier at around €70-€80)

If you really want to impress with a venue, try La Stampa 36 Dawson St (01 6778611) which is in the ballroom of an old Georgian building. Expect a minimum of €100 per head, again inculding wine, though.

If you REALLY want to go overboard try the Michelin star restaurants such as Patrick Guilbaud's and Thornton's, though you won't have any change out of €200 per head. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get the address and phone numbers for you.

Moving downmarket, Keating's 64 Mary St (01 878 0223) is in an old converted church and has a good atmosphere. It will only set you back around €40 per head. Food is good too.

Mao 2-3 Chatham Row does great Oreintal fusion food and is very reasoable at around €30 per head including wine, but you can't make a reservation.

For daytime eating, Avoca 11-13 Suffolk St does great food and is very cheap.

That's just a few which come to mind and you can't go wrong with any of them. They are all in the city centre too. If you've any more queries let me know. If you want information on bars, clubs etc let me know and I'll help you there. What sort of things you want to do?

Eeeuggggh! Tuesday or Wednesday? Not going to be a great night anywhere there! Give me a while to think about it. You know your way around the city at all?

I agree with both of these, they're great. I've had good experiences at both of them.

It's Dublin! Just walk down Temple Bar or Grafton Street any night and you're bound to find some great pubs. It's an absolutely fantastic city, one of my favorites, enjoy!

The best place to get fish and chips is Leo Burdocks on Werbergh St. Oldest and Best in town.

Yep, SW733 is probably right. You won't have to walk far to find anywhere interesting. I think you're wasting your time going to any of the clubs midweek as the pubs stay open just as late and they're free. If you're looking for upmarket, try Cocoon in a laneway off Duke St (one of the streets of Grafton St), but the dress code is designer casual. If you just want to score stick to Temple Bar, but you'll possibly score with someone from down the road from you in the UK!

Good pubs popular with a younger crowd would be places like Hogan's on Dame St, Turk's Head Chop House on Parliament Street or The Bleeding Horse, though that's a bit out of the way at the top of Camden St.

If you want a tradtitional bar, try O'Donohoe's on Merrion Row (just of St Stephen's Green). If you want a place with the wow factor, check out Café en Seine on Dawson St, but it won't be packed midweek. There are a couple of superpubs like Pravda just opposite the north entrance of the Ha'penny Bridge (the footbridge over the Liffey) and Zanzibar just down the quays from that, though I don't know what these would be like midweek.

Where abouts are you staying? If it's Temple Bar you're close to everything.

I highly recommend the UCD student bar on a Monday night.

An absolute s***show. But that's probably not your thing anymore.

There's a fantastic pub just north of the Jamison's distillery on King Street called 'The Cobblestone." It's out of the main tourist area, so you get to meet some locals and working internationals, and the session players are very good.

Ahh, my former city...brings back fond memories  Smile

To add to the establishments previously mentioned, there's a nicey restaurant called "The Boxty House" on Temple Bar which serves very good traditional food without ripping you off (too much).

I had a nice meal in the Temple Bar Hotel once. The pubs are very expensive round there though - you'll need lots of wonga!  Sad
