It's a question that sparks fierce debate: Where would you find the best brunch in Dublin?
In recent years, brunch has become the most important meal of the week for many and there is no shortage of Dublin brunch dishes to obsess over.
Not only is brunch enjoyed mostly at the weekends – meaning we associate it with good, relaxed, carefree times – but it also features ridiculously large portions and makes it socially acceptable to drink alcohol in the mornings.
Don't judge me... I'm a sucker for Mimosas
It's become a weekly ritual of mine to try out the best brunch dishes in Dublin so it's about time I shared with you some of my absolute FAVES.
