As you can see, we had some amazing meals during our time in Dublin. No matter where we went, the portions were huge, but despite this, the food always came beautifully presented. My top recommendations would have to be Winding stair (top photo), The Church (chicken and Guinness pie), and of course Merchant's arch (photos 4 & 5), where we enjoyed a lovely evening of good food and live music!
