A pleasant spot to have a casual bite to eat: ingredients are fresh and additive-free (as are all the products on sale in the shop's Food Hall) and everything has a home-cooked flavour.

Kilkenny

Situated on the first floor of the shop known simply as Kilkenny, with a view into the grounds of Trinity College if you are lucky (i.e. unless large buses are parked across the road), the Kilkenny Restaurant is a pleasant spot to have a casual bite to eat: ingredients are fresh and additive-free (as are all the products on sale in the shop's Food Hall) and everything has a home-cooked flavour.


Salads, quiches, casseroles, home-baked breads and cakes are the Kilkenny Restaurant specialities, and they are reliably good - and you will also find Irish craft beers and cider on the Cafe menu. A range of Kilkenny preserves and dressings - all made and labelled on the premises - is available in the shop.


This is a good place to come for breakfast, and offers great value: fresh orange juice to start and then variations combinations of the traditional fare for as little as €5 (toast and tea or coffee, plus a choice of four items from a list including thick cut bacon, Kilkenny artisan sausage, cherry tomatoes, scrambled egg, homemade potato cakes and more). Hard to beat for the quality.

Sad as Dubliners were to see the 2012 closure of one of the city’s most iconic businesses, the Dublin Woollen Mills (where James Joyce, no less, once worked), it is cheering to see Elaine Murphy and the team from the equally iconic Winding Stair next door serving u ...

Visitors to Howth tend to stay around the harbour area, but there are some nice little restaurants and shops 'up in the village'. Just above the church, past the flower shop, this prettily presented independent food store, deli and café is where locals go for the ...
