A Guide To: The Best Brunch in Dublin

I’ve had quite a few weekends away in Dublin over the past year. My cousins from across the pond keep getting hitched (I’m half Irish) so we’ve been touring Dublin’s finest venues. I love wining and dining at a gorgeous wedding, but waking up with a sore head on Sunday… not so much. We’re often in desperate need of some greasy grub or a carb-loaded brunch and we’ve found a few decent spots over the years. Here’s my top 3 brunch spots in Dublin.

Nestled in the swanky area of the Grand Canal which stretches out into the River Liffey and the Irish Sea, (who knew?!) this waterside spot is quite the catch. If you’re lucky enough to bag a table outside as we did – or even bag a table at all – then you’re in for a treat. The best Eggs Benedict (โ‚ฌ12.50) and Mediterranean dishes that you’ll find in the city, with refreshing cocktails and a gorgeous view.

Another spot with Mediterranean flavours… are we seeing a trend here? We had a little wait for a table, but it was most definitely worth it. Avo & Eggs (โ‚ฌ11.50) come with smashed avocado and spiced chickpeas spread on toasted Georgian bread, topped with two poached eggs, creamy harissa yogurt and radish, sprinkled with beetroot powder.  The Bellini is perfectly fizzy and sweet; just how I like it.

Ok, ok… a bit of a wild card here. But I honestly had such a good time that it has to be said. I thought the Guinness Factory would be all beer and bore, but it was actually a great day out. It goes with out saying that hair of the dog always works, particularly when surrounded by immersive entertainment, Irish dancers and multiple bars full of the hoppy stuff. Head all the way up and you’ll find Gravity Bar; the rooftop spot with epic views all across town.
