I got in late last night but wanted to do this before I got busy unpacking.
We had great dinners in Dublin. The restaurants we went to were atmospheric/fun/somewhat trendy (meaning not white tablecloth or coat and tie), very good food, and very good service.
In all of these cases (except Rustic Stone) we met the owners and chatted with them at length which of course adds to the experience. All of these restaurants offered the option of not having "big food".
Feel free to contact me with questions.
Rustic Stone Steak, seafood, pasta as well as small plates and unusual sides.
My husband said he thinks it is one of the best restaurants we have been to.
Las Tapas de Lola Tapas
Zaragoza Tapas---completely different from above restaurant
Bach 16 Wine Bar/pizza/ casual food
