If there’s one meal that I look forward to for 364 days a year it’s Christmas dinner.
This silly season it’s important to get some good soakage before hitting the pints and there’s nothing better to munch on than turkey, ham and all the trimmings.
Here’s some of the best ways to eat Christmas dinner in Dublin:
1. O’ Neills Pub
O’Neills is one of the most charming spots in Dublin City. Right across the street from the famous Molly Malone, this pub has been standing for over 300 years.
This is your traditional, iconic, classic Christmas dinner.
It’s a carvery so you can pick and choose what ever you like from goose fat potatoes to red cabbage.
They also serve some of the best mulled wine I’ve tasted.
The atmosphere here is like no other.
Every Stephen’s night myself and my siblings tumble into the kitchen after the pub at around 3am, we pull apart the leftovers from the Christmas dinner and load it into a sambo. It’s one of my favourite drunken traditions.
Meltdown has nailed the Christmas dinner toasty.
It’s the ultimate comfort food and I’ll deffo be taking inspiration from it for my own sambo this year.
(The secret is a few slices of brie!)
3. Farmer Browns
Yorkshire Puddings are the best part of a Sunday roast, so picture this – an entire dinner wrapped up in a GIANT Yorkshire Pudding.
This dish is loaded with the good stuff – cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and heaps of stuffing.
It’s the dream really.
4. Wynns Hotel
A good old-fashioned roast – if it’s not broke don’t fix it.
Wynns Hotel is a must this season.
It’s situated right in the middle of the action and Christmas lights in the city.
This is one of the wackier ways to enjoy a Christmas meal but it’s divine.
Having your dinner all wrapped up in a burrito makes for handy eating.
6. Thunder Cut Alley
The flat breads from Thunder Cut Alley are beyond stunning and they’re delish too.
This retro dive bar in Smithfield is one of my favourite spots to go for cocktails and craic.
Woodstock in Phibsborough never fails.
Their carvery would bring a tear to your eye it’s so good.
Turkey, ham, potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce – the lot.
Only thing that’s left to do now is decide which one you’re going for!
