Ahh, brunch.

The notion-filled, made-up, filler meal to which we have all become accustomed.

Not all of the usual hotspots will be open tomorrow, but some troopers are keeping their doors ajar for the first few weak and weary of 2016.

1. Whitefriar Grill, Aungier Street

Whitefriar Grill has long been a contender for best brunch in Dublin, and how lucky you are that you can sample their impressive menu on the morn of what may be your first hangover of 2016.

Get the Belgian waffles if you're a sweet tooth, or the chicken hero parmigiana for those of you in need of carbs. Trust us.

2. WUFF, Benburb Street

WUFF is yet another Dublin brunch staple open on the day of new year. Their Eggs Benedict is served on a brioche bun, putting a nice twist on an old classic.

3. Dillingers, Ranelagh

When in Dillingers, get yourself some shakshuka – which we reviewed here.

A Tunisian dish containing eggs poached in a tomato sauce, with chilli peppers and onions and whatever you're having yourself – in this case, Merguez sausage, feta, swiss chard and chopped spinach. So good it deserves a round of applause.


4. The Oar House, West Pier Howth

Howth boasts some of the most beautiful sights in the capital (stay the hell away, Storm Gertrude), as well as some of the best seafood our country can offer.

The Oar House is the best of the best, with fresh seafood coming in off the boats every day. Treat yourself to their powerfully tasty fish and chips, and you'll find yourself swimming (geddit?) back for more every weekend.

5. Balfes, The Westbury

Located right in the centre of town, Balfes packs a punch in pretty glam surroundings - two prime ingredients for a perfect mid-morning brunch.

Their prime beef burger is served on a brioche bun with smoked paprika mayo, tomato, gruyere cheese and bacon, and will certainly drop kick that headache right out of your frail, fragile body.

What a way to kick off the new year in that saucy, slim body of yours than dining in one of the trendiest, healthiest hotspots in town. Honest To Goodness has the brunch that will melt your troubles away.

7. The Larder, 6 Parliament Street

The Larder is a hidden gem that boasts great food (they grow their own veg) and greater coffee (they roast their own blends) all at incredible value for money.
