See Dublin through the eyes of a proud Dubliner

There are many sides to Dublin and even if you’re visiting for only a few days, you’ll probably see them all. Because of the city’s compact size, prosperity and poverty live side by side, especially around the north inner city. However, most Dubliners take a real pride in their city. With good reason, too, as it has so much to offer, from great shopping to world-class galleries and museums. And, ofcourse, a fantastic pub scene.

The wine cellar in the basement has an incredible wine list and a small but very tasty nibbles menu. Nothing nicer then a delish bottle of red and a cheese board.

Dublin’s most prestigious foodie destination, Fallon and Byrne houses a wine bar, restaurant, cafe, food hall and function room. The cafe serves both filter and espresso with a seasonal blend that is renowned around the city.

Mouth watering eatery Editors' Note

Your mouth will already be watering when you reach the restaurant of this institution (you enter the building via a deli on the ground floor). Fallon & Byrne is a pleasant, business-like kind of space with an excellent menu of refined brasserie fare and some lovely wines to complete the picture.

Roast saddle of pancetta-wrapped rabbit stuffed with wild mushroom mousse would be a typical offering from the main courses.

There’s another, more casual operation in the basement where excellent cheese platters and charcuterie can be wolfed down with large glasses of affordable vino, or else a really quick café operation on the ground floor, among the shelves of the food hall.

All in all, Fallon & Byrne is a consistently excellent operation catering for pretty much every culinary need under one roof.
