Top 5 places to find real Irish food in Dublin

“Coddle, a classic Dublin broth made of boiled fatty sausage and diced vegetables may have cut the mustard with hungry Dublin dockers in the 1940s but nowadays Dubliners prefer something a bit more sophisticated.

The friendly folk at O’Neill’s, bang in the city centre and one of Dublin’s finest traditional bars, know a thing or two about Dubliners’ tastes – they’ve only been at it for 300 years. There’s little concession to modernity on the menu here, thankfully, where the only kind of foam they serve is on top of a freshly-pulled pint. Come with an appetite – their pile-em-high traditional carvery lunches and Sunday roasts are an endeared institution. Drop in for a creamy bowl of Bantry Bay mussels, a dark beef in Guinness stew or a dozen oysters to be mopped up with a slab of soda bread. If Behan were alive, we bet this is where he’d still fuel his muse.”
