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.

7. The Lobster Pot — Ballsbridge 

Amazing chowder, mussels, steaks and, of course, lobster. 

The lobster of your dreams.
