Best Restaurants in Dublin
The dining scene in Dublin is booming and has improved
considerably over the past few years and much like other
international cuisine hot-spots, good food can be pricey. For less
formal dining, there are plenty of charming eateries for visitors
to sample not only international dishes but also good old
home-cooked Irish fare.
Irish cuisine consists of simple meat dishes, usually paired
with boiled root vegetables such as turnip, carrot, parsnip and an
Irish favourite, potatoes. Other popular dishes include mutton and
beef stews, often cooked with Guinness, as well as tripe, meat and
blood puddings, and sausages.
A new trend in Celtic cuisine, known as ''modern Irish'' has
become increasingly popular and can be described as French cuisine
infused with the natural flavours of the Irish countryside and
coastal waters. The cobblestone streets of Temple Bar district, as
well as the Trinity College area, offer a wonderful and eclectic
selection of eateries where visitors can whet their appetites.
