All set to explore Dublin? Not before you’ve fortified yourself with a tasty brunch you’re not – check out our five brunch picks and their nearby attractions, so you can see the sights and satisfy your appetite at the same time, delicious!
26 Parkgate Street, Dublin 8. @JunosCafe
A funky New York-style diner on the red Luas line (hop off at Heuston), Juno’s Café offers a tasty weekend menu that won’t break the bank. From classics like Eggs Benedict to hunger-busters like the Full Irish, all appetites are catered for!
While you’re there, check out… the Phoenix Park
Juno’s is located right beside the leafy oasis of Phoenix Park, home to the President’s residence, Dublin Zoo and even a herd of freely roaming deer, perfect for a relaxed post-brunch stroll.
Dux & Co.
51 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2. @DuxandCo
If it’s home comforts you’re after, look no further than Dux & Co. Centrally located overlooking the River Liffey, this restaurant (which offers BYOB dining in the evenings) boasts pretty floral wallpaper and vintage tableware. Brunch is a tasty affair, with locally-sourced quirky offerings like Spanish Scramble and the Farmer’s Plate.
While you’re there, check out… The Ha’Penny Bridge
Dux looks out onto the iconic Ha’Penny Bridge; a cast-iron structure dating back to 1816. Though its official title is the ‘Liffey Bridge’, it’s more commonly known as the Ha’Penny Bridge, since back in the day, punters used to pay a half-penny to cross it!
Fumbally Lane, Dublin 8.
Visiting Dublin on a budget? Be sure to make your way to Fumbally, a co-op located in Dublin’s antique quarter. Offering locally-sourced, organic produce in an open-plan environment, the delicious Fumbally Eggs will set you back just €5.
While you’re there, check out… St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Adjacent to Fumbally is the stunning St. Patrick’s Cathedral; Ireland’s largest church. Founded in 1191, a Dean holds office at St. Patrick’s, the most famous of which was Gulliver’s Travels author Jonathan Swift, who presided there from 1713 to 1745.
Corner Note Café
1 Coliemore Road, Dalkey. @CornerNoteCafe
Fancy a bite by the seaside? Hop on a southbound DART from the city-centre, and in just 25 minutes you’ll find yourself in the idyllic town of Dalkey. Pause for brunch at the Corner Note Café, a charming bistro offering mouth-watering dishes like Salmon Benedict and Seafood Chowder.
While you’re there, check out… Coliemore Harbour
Take a stroll down to Coliemore Harbour; a picturesque spot that during the Middle Ages was the main harbour for the city.

4 Main Street, Howth Village. @TheHouseHowth
On the other side of the city (just 30 mins on the DART), you’ll find the equally beautiful village of Howth. Award-winning café, restaurant and bar The House is one of our favourite spots, and their brunch menu features gems like Garlicky Portobello Mushrooms, Crab Fettuccine and Panfried Hake.
While you’re there, check out… Howth Head
Get your hiking boots on; the peninsula of Howth Head is no mean feat to conquer! However the breath-taking view of the bay from the cliffs is well worth the climb. From Howth you can also take boat trips to nearby Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island.
