Sundays are made for getting up late, chilling out and eating good food and there’s nothing better than waking up in a great city and losing yourself in the atmosphere over a leisurely brunch in one of the local hotspots.
Dublin is absolutely no exception for this and has more than its fair share of great local places to go and enjoy with amazing food, colourful characters and a buzzing social atmosphere in a city full of beautiful and interesting perspectives perfect for spending a chilled out Sunday afternoon in.
Here are my picks for a top Sunday brunch in the city! 🙂
Elephant and castle:
Elephant and castle is in the the Temple Bar area and is known to be one of the top five places to eat in Dublin.They have a great brunch menu including french toast, pancakes, omelettes and steak and eggs and you are right in the heart of the city and the atmosphere with lots of pubs and bars with live music all around you as well as some great individual and vintage shops to browse through. There food is amazing and it always has a great buzzy atmosphere. They also serve the best chicken wings ever! – seriously! you have to try them! 🙂
Cleaver East is also within the Temple bar area and is part of the Clarence hotel. They are well known for their cleaver brunch club which includes 2 courses and bottomless mimosas or bellini’s for 2 hours- who doesn’t love unlimited mimosa’s with your pancakes! 🙂 #Winner! Not only do they offer bottomless cocktails but there delicious brunch menu includes everything from a full Irish breakfast to brioche french toast as well as dishes like crispy duck nachos and garlic and bacon fried potatoes which by the way are the food of the gods! lol – what a way to spend an afternoon, especially when an espresso martini (or three!) is added to the mix!
San Lorenzo’s is an Italian restaurant with a New York style located on South Great George street and is walking distance to places like Trinity college, Christ Church and Grafton street. They have an awesome weekend brunch menu as well as a great weekday brunch menu too that includes all manner of dishes from Frittatas and brunch tacos to coco pops french toast- Yes you heard that right and yes it is divine! 🙂 They have a really fun, upbeat and buzzy atmosphere with great music and amazing cocktails so you really can’t go wrong! lol
