7 Toothache-Worthy Dublin Sweet Treats That Aren’t Doughnuts

Alana Laverty

It’s no secret that Dublin was hit hard by the doughnut trend in the last few years. 

And we were (and still are) massive fans of the glorious ring-shaped desert. 

But sometimes you wanna hop back off of that bandwagon and try something a little different. 

So here are seven glorious, sugary, decadent desserts you can get in Dublin that aren’t doughnuts: 

1. Cookie Sambo – Scoop 

The only thing better than ice cream is an ice cream sandwich – with COOKIES. 

You can find this wonderful sambo creation in Scoop, Ranelagh. 

2. Chocolate brownie – The Fat Fox 

A good brownie is surprisingly hard to come by these days. 

But The Fat Fox are bringin’ brownies back – and they’re so damn delicious. 

Nothing like settling into a chocolate coma on the weekend. 

3. Kinder Bueno Spring Rolls – P. Mac’s 

You’re probably sick of hearing about these, but they really are phenom. 

Kinder Buenos wrapped in spring roll pastry and deep fried <3 served with ice cream and marshmallow dip. Hell yes. 

4. Any cupcake – The Cupcake Bloke

Also known as the cupcake masters – you’ll never be disappointed by their creations. 

You can find them on Coppinger Row just off South William and Clarendon streets. 

5. Big, dorty milkshake – Sweet Republic 

Because liquid calories don’t count. 

This Oreo, red velvet shake is the stuff of our dirtiest and sweetest dreams. 

6. Salted caramel popcorn – Taco Taco 

Salty, caramel-y popcorn topped with peanut butter ice cream. 

Heaven is a place on earth at Taco Taco. 

7. Hand-rolled ice cream – Arctic Stone 

Ireland’s first ever hand rolled ice cream tastes as good as it looks. 

Arctic Stone are available for hire or you can find them in Dún Laoghaire’s People’s Park on Saturdays. Deeee-lish. 

Vegan options available!
