We strongly recommend the beef short rib tacos or the phenomenal halloumi burger.

Another Cork based gem! Cask is located in the city’s Victorian quarter. Sister company to the famous Greenes, this incredible cocktail bar sets the standard for creative and unusual blends and won a vast amount of awards for their efforts. Sit beside their very own waterfall and enjoy the delicious range of bites or boards they serve to pair with their delectable drinks. May life always be so good!
3. The Duck Restaurant at the Marlfield House . Wexford
Located just outside Gorey in Co. Wexford, this restored sandstone terraced courtyard and potting shed is a beautiful dining experience. Enjoy your meal looking out at the kitchen garden full of fresh herbs, fruit and vegetables and blooming roses. This restaurant has seen huge industrial acclaim named by Georgina Campbell as atmospheric restaurant of the year. As the name suggests their crispy duck confit salad is to die for and so is their Orzo risotto.
4. The Tap Room , Donegal
If you are looking for the very best in stonebaked pizza and craft beer simply look no further. Their pizza dough is homemade daily and can be gluten free on request. Pair this with a local Kinnegar brew and some good company and you are on your way to an incredibly enjoyable evening. Sometimes restaurants can overcomplicate things, this simple but perfectly executed pizza and pint combo will leave a smile on your face.
5. Saba , Baggot Street Dublin
This amazing Thai and Vietnamese restaurant has a new secret garden filled with funky graffiti, italian seating, church pews and festoon lighting. With an awning currently being added to the garden this is set to be a popular outdoor location coming into the winter months. The goal here was to replicate the Thai street hawkers dining scene and they have done an excellent job at replicating this atmosphere. Do not miss the black pepper squid and their exceptional Pad Thai.
