12 Places You Can Tuck Into Brunch On Paddy’s Day


Paddy’s day is a heavy day in terms of crowds, culture and drinking – so the best thing to do to ease into the day is to get yourself stuck into a tasty brunch, to line your stomach and prepare your mind for the chaos the day is about to ensue. 

However, Dublin’s population doubles in size (or at least, seems like it does) over Paddy’s weekend – so make sure to book everything well in advance – as these places will be booked out sooner than you can say ‘Lá Fhéile Pádraig‘.

You’ve been warned. 

1. The Greenery on Lennox

This Portobello spot is just far enough out of town to avoid the tourists, yet close enough to feel like you’re in the thick of it.

2. San Lorenzo’s

San Lorenzo’s of George’s Street announced during last week that is now does a weekday brunch, much to the pleasure of everyone who enjoys super tasty food
