The first impressions of foreign tourists of Dublin are usually beer and pub-focused: that Dubliners love to booze, that Guinness is synonymous with the city, and that your Dublin experience will not be complete without hitting the pubs filled with fun-loving people and overflowing beer. But the city is more than that: Dublin dining will give your palate and hungry stomach the satisfaction they are looking for.
As a result of decades of economic progress, Dublin has become one of the leading gastronomic capitals in Europe. From simple pub trip to more flamboyant experiences, the city offers something for all tastes and budgets. Dublin dining is a delight, with all the hotels and restaurants serving traditional and international cuisine.
Until the last decade, Dublin dining was somewhat a lackluster experience. Usually, a meal meant a piece of steak that went with a dish of overcooked veggies and potato. But today, Dublin has everything to please the discerning taste buds of the tourists. It now has trendy tapas and Dublin bars that serve almost anything you fancy. The city now also has Michelin-starred restaurants that serve more courses than ever before.
