Our Inspector's view

Dubliners love this intimate seafood-focused restaurant, whether it's for lunch after shopping in classy Grafton Street, or for a pre-theatre dinner in the Oyster & Champagne Bar. Afternoon tea features Yawl Bay crabs and Irish smoked salmon open sandwiches. Thoughtful sourcing of ingredients is, naturally, behind everything.

About the area

Discover Dublin

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.
