In honour of St Patrick’s Day, we’ve rounded up the best brunch spots in Dublin. Here’s hoping we can save you from woeful mornings-after-the-craic and ensure your days on the Emerald Isle get off to the best possible start. Sláinte!
Whether you subscribe to the ‘hair of the dog’ school of thought or you’re part of the hydrate-and-caffeinate crowd, Super Miss Sue (2-3 Drury Street, D2; +353 1679 9009) has you covered on both sides with an impressive bloody Mary bar and a good cup of coffee. It’s just off Grafton Street and a short walk from Trinity College and Temple Bar.
Southside Dublin’s Sister Sadie (46 Harrington Street, D8; +353 1441 6596) is the place to go for weekday brunching; the Turkish eggs menemen dish is a hearty crowd pleaser.
Italian eatery San Lorenzo’s (South Great George’s Street, D2; +353 1478 9383) is billed as the ‘brunch of champions.’ Judging by just the panettone French toast and the pulled pork belly hash, we’d have to agree. Slán, hangover. We won’t be missing you.
For brunch with a view, head to Sophie’s (33 Harcourt Street, D2; +353 1607 8100), which has an honest-to-goodness full Irish breakfast option and seriously quaffable coffee. Everything about this all-day eatery is as aesthetically pleasing as its fluffy and fruit-topped French toast.
For eggs all the ways, stroll just beyond St Stephen’s Green to Whitefriar Grill (16 Aungier Street, D2; +353 1475 9003), where you can find plenty of freshly pressed juices, too.
If all you really want is a fluffy, sugary pastry, hightail it to Dublin Doughnut Co. (+353 85 128 8683). It’s inside the Art and Business Campus Drumcondra (40 Lower Drumcondra Road, D9).
Finally, if you’re lucky enough to be staying at The Dylan hotel (Eastmoreland Place, D4), you need only wander down the stairs for your full Irish breakfast.
