Balfes at The Westbury
“Buzzy all-day dining venue with creative menu” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's View
With its own street entrance, and pavement tables, Balfes is an affable place with white walls, dark leather seats and a long bar-counter down one end. Kick off in the morning with an omelette or blueberry pancakes or come for lunch of roast sea trout.

About The area
It is often visited on a weekend trip, but rushing around is not the best way to experience Dublin. When Ireland joined the European Union, an economic boom began that flourished in the ‘Celtic Tiger’ years of the 1990s – fashion, the arts, food and Irish culture all blossomed, turning Dublin into one of the world’s hottest city destinations. Its transformation has continued into the 21st century with a technology boom.
There is something very special about this small city with its split personality – exhilarating and chic on one side but traditional, with an older generation still hanging on to pre-EU values, on the other.
One of the city’s irresistible charms is its welcoming people; so take time to relax in the pubs and cafes while absorbing the craic that is synonymous with the Irish. Slide away from the touristy themed pubs to discover the real heart of Dublin in its less well known taverns and in conversation with the locals.
