You've just run 26 (and a bit) miles, and you've never deserved food more.

But walking significant distances to get it? Lord no.

Here are four spots within collapsing distance of the finish line – on Merrion Square, right by Holles Street hospital – where you can refuel and replenish and bask in the glory of what you've just done.

1. 3fe

But of course. Brunch you'd sell your mother for on a regular day – let alone after you've finished a gruelling race – just a few short yards around the corner from the finish line, on Grand Canal Street.

2. Sprout & Co, Lower Mount Street

Whether they'll actually be open or not, we're unsure. But if they are – then this is the place you wanna be getting your sustenance after that race.

3. Oil Can Harry's, Lower Mount Street 

Get the stew. Just get the stew. Trust us.

Oh, and a pint. 

Oil Can Harrys

4. Dunne & Crescenzi, 16 Frederick Street South 

You can't go wrong with this spot. 

Super relaxed venue for some serious Italian grub. Exactly the right amount of carbs and flavours for your beating heart and tired legs. Do yourself a favour and grab yourself some bruschetta, the way it's supposed to be. Bread is your friend right now, you deserve it.

5. The Punnet, Lower Mount Street

From wraps filled with turkey, eggs, avocado, egg and quinoa to juices, smoothies and coffee. 

Each one as nourishing as the last.
