10 Shit Hot New Dublin Venues That You Need To Check Out This Weekend


It can be hard to keep up with all the new places opening in Dublin on a day-to-day basis, so we’ve decided to do the hard work for you. 

These places have all been open for a very short period of time and are only just finding their feet. Having said that, they’ve been getting plenty of hype and are serving up great food and drinks. 

Grab a friend, make a list and start working your way through these great new Dublin spots.

1. Gaillot Et Gray

Started as a food truck in Greystones, this great pizza focused resto now has a permanent home in Dublin 8 and they are absolutely killing it.

2. Fish Shop – Queen Street

Another spot that started off as a food shack in Blackrock, Fish Shop now has two permanent homes in the city centre. The absolute best when it comes to cooking amazing fish in simple settings and the latest on Queen Street is no different.

3. Lemon And Duke 

This trendy new city centre bar is so new that it only opened last night. With rugby players behind it and the success of the Bridge 1916 to build on, they will no doubt be mobbed.

4. Fia 

A slick new spot in Rathgar. Keeping people in the area for amazing brunch, coffee and general nourishment instead of heading off to the likes of nearby Ranelagh. A wonderful addition.

5. Charlotte Quay

This slick new restaurant slots into a space left by Mourne Seafood. The people behind it are the same who run Coppinger Row, which is an icon of the Dublin restaurant scene. Lets hope for more of the same. 

6. Sprout – Mount Street 

After the huge success and huge queues at their Dawson Street branch, they were quick to expand and feed more people with healthy salads and their wonderful juices.

7. Beef And Lobster 

Oliver Dunne always seems to be a busy man with his various projects and the latest has nothing on the menu bar Lobster and Beef. Our type of spot in fairness.

8. The new Da Mimmo’s 

Da Mimmo’s has a huge following now stretching back years and so much so that they’ve had to expand and make the place much bigger. They’ve upped the quality even more and the staff remain super friendly.

9. Dublin Pizza Company

The city seems to be going pizza mad and what is not to love about that thought? This is one of the smallest spots in Dublin on Aungier Street but, by God, is their pizza good.

10. Two Boys Brew

Amazing coffee and brunch come to a part of Dublin that badly needed it and the locals have seriously embraced it. We could eat and drink here every day of the week.
