Travelled miles to watch the clash between Ireland and Wales?
Starving? Knackered? Craving a pint?
Don’t go hungry pet, there are an abundance of gorgeous eateries within close distance of the Aviva.
Here are seven of our personal faves.
1. The French Paradox — Ballsbridge
This dreamy hidden gem in only a stone’s throw from the Aviva and is an oasis of French food and wines.
As a wine bar, they stock just about every wine under the sun and serve a wide range of delicious dishes. Line that tummy before the match now y’hear?

2. Roly’s — Ballsbridge
One of the most reliable places to go for a feed in all of Dublin.
Perfect for pre- and post- match. Check out their menus here.
3. Farmer Browns — Bath Avenue
They serve brunchy/lunchy dishes 11am until 4pm on Fridays and then dinner kicks off from 6pm until 10pm.

4. Base Pizza — Ballsbridge
You just can’t go wrong with an enormous Base ‘za.
Easy, quick and absolutely divine – Base is nice ‘n’ close to the Aviva so you won’t be missing out on any of the action.
You can get a 13″ pizza with a salad and two drinks for €22.50. Not too shabby.
5. The Bridge 1859 — Ballsbridge
Last but certainly not least, is The Bridge.
Their takeout menu is faaaaab. From quinoa salads to roast beef sambos, all delicious. Throw in a soup, chowder or chips for a few yoyos.
6. The Old Spot — Bath Avenue
Their roast for two will set you back a mere €25. Choose between chicken or beef with duck fat roast potatoes, roast root veg, cauliflower cheese and red wine jus.
