As Irish people, there are two things we love more than anything else in the world

A drink or two, and a bargain. As most of us know, these two things aren’t usually conducive – we all know the feeling of heading out for “just the one” and end up spending the bulk of our wages in one whirlwind evening. This is where bottomless brunch comes in. It’s all-inclusive, so no need to worry about bankrupting yourself. All you need to focus on is getting a cute outfit together and you’re good to go. Haven’t been to your favourite brunch spot in a while, and wondering if it still has a bottomless option? We’ve got you covered with this handy list.

A spot that’s hidden away on South willy, you’d walk past it while dodging the cars on the pedestrianised street without noticing it. Kind staff, who aren’t stingy about filling up your glass with bottomless mimosas. They offer an all-star line-up of brunch favourites from huevos rancheros, eggs benedict, open steak sandwich and avocado on toast, the portions are big which when you are consuming that amount of alcohol is advised. If you don’t fancy heading there for bottomless brunch it’s also a sweet little spot for date night or a quiet meet-up with a pal. 

Cleaver East

The location of Cleaver East is hard to beat, set above the crush of Temple Bar, this light and airy space is truly a great place to get away from it all. Running Saturdays and Sundays this spot is a lovely space to sink a few cocktails, enjoy some grub and have a great catch-up with pals. The team at Cleaver East serve up a high-quality varied menu, which will has something on it for even the pickiest of eaters, from eggs benny, smashed avo on toast, short rib tacos, buttermilk chicken with waffles, to cheeseburgers!

Beef and Lobster

You can find Beef and Lobster on Parliament Street, more info here

One of the longest-standing bottomless brunches in town, Beef and Lobster takes their 1hr and 45mins of bottomless mimosas or bellinis seriously. The decor is fun, the music is loud and the atmosphere is laid-back, you’ll be pretty much left to your own devices. Their lobster roll is a must-try, but their menu also has duck wings, buttermilk fried chicken and waffles and cajun chicken quesadilla that all deserve a mention. 

The Revolution

You can find The Revolution on Terenure Road East, more info here

Not a massive place, which perhaps is what makes The Revolution pretty special. The decor is a nod to that beachy California aesthetic, all exposed wood and twinkling lights. You can enjoy bottomless mimosas, beers, sparkling rose, seltzers, tunes and more at this Rathgar running every weekend from 11.00-16.00. While they are best known for their pizzas, they’ve got a Tex-Mex-themed menu for brunch with carnitas, cod, mushroom and prawn tacos in attendance, alongside breakfast burritos and smashed avo, there’s also a fry and some cheesecake pancakes to tickle your fancy. 

Bow Lane Social Club

A spot that’s laying its own claim to having the best bottomless brunch in the city is the buzzy Aungier Street spot. The friendly team put on a real show for bottomless brunchers, led by resident glam-puss M I Z Z A. The menu isn’t massive but there are all the classics included, like eggs benny, smash burger, chicken tendies and dahl for the veggies (vegans are advised to check with staff ahead of time). There’s a wide variety of drinks available on tick, a far cry from the sometimes restrictive parameters of mimosas and bellinis. Staff are quick with the drinks as soon as they hear the last slurp of the cocktail they are filling ’em up, which is unusual for some bottomless brunch spots. 

Chimac

This nostalgia-twinged boozer is a new enough addition to Dublin’s bottomless brunch scene and must be the only place in Ireland – nay, the world – offering bottomless pints of Harp. Instead of a standing order of weekend bottom-less brunching, the team run a series of once-off bottom-less brunch events. As a 90s-themed bar, these events are generally musical-themed along the lines of Britney v Spice Girls or 90s pop v R&B, which happen every Saturday and Sunday, and come in at 30 quid a head. Food comes from Dublin Pizza Company, titans in the city’s pizza space, who serve up a small but concise menu of wood-fired pies. Be sure to book well in advance as these tickets tend to sell out lippitysplit.
