As the city continues to simmer, outdoor seating has become a seriously hot commodity.
Finding the perfect seat in the sun to enjoy a cool drink should never be stressful – but with town thronging, it’s very often near impossible.
Let us draw your attention to a hidden haven in the heart of the city where you can enjoy a drink and a light snack without someone hovering nearby waiting to pounce on your table.
We’ve already touted Trinity City Hotel as one of the most underrated hotels in the city, but a recent €16m refurbishment has put it firmly on the map.
Two areas in the hotel that have benefitted from the makeover include the Brunswick Terrace and the Courtyard Garden – two spots that are absolutely perfect for a summer catch up with mates – when you actually want to hear what they’re saying.
Both are now offering a menu of tasty snacks and light bites to share – or savour yourself in the sunshine – from 12pm to 10pm daily.
Crisp filo prawns, spicy chicken wings with a blue cheese dip and the black pudding bonbons with an apple and fig chutney are just a few of the bites available.
Quench your thirst with the hotel’s extensive drinks menu, choose a signature cocktail, glass of wine of craft beer to pair with your food, or sample an ice-tea or homemade lemonade from the bar – the perfect drinks to enjoy outdoors.
It’s always great to have a secret spot to hand when al fresco spaces are at a premium!
