Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for: the final Six Nations game of 2017.
We’re all ready for a serious showdown between the Irish and English teams today.
It’s all kicking off from 5pm so whether it’s a roast, fish or wings you’re after – here’s where to get your grub on before the clash.
1. Fowl Play @ The Square Ball
This gorge little bar on Hogan Place are doing something very special in homage to today’s clash.
‘The Tullow Tank’ monstrosity of smoked and chopped beef rib, porter onions, smoked applewood cheddar, rocket and horseradish mayo, all stacked mighty on a buttery toasted brioche bun. Wood-grilled Heartless Hartley’s Chicken Hearts with red card hot sauce.
Try ’em for €6 today.
They’ll be showing the match later so there’s no need to even move your arse – stay for the day.
2. Whitefriar Grill
If you’re hankerin’ after a big, juicy plate of meat, then Whitefriar is where you’re headed.
Their ‘ribs n rump’ platter is mounded high with rump steak, sticky BBQ ribs and thick cut chips.
At €27.50, it’s perfect for one extremely hungry divil or to share between to peckish pals.
These guys know their shit when it comes to a good roast.
Located centrally on Baggot Street Lower, the focus here is very much on beef and it has to be tasted to be believed.
They do an awesome burger too.
4. The Goat
The Goat on Kilmacud Road is well known for a massive roast.
Unreal meat, spuds and gravy – the perfect base for a feed of celebratory pints.
Their bangers and mash are also out of this world.
5. The Exchequer
A beaut feed for the entire fam and a most reliable roast.
Prices from €60 for four people, including a buideál of wine. A worthy investment.
6. Catch 22
Get your fish and chips fix. With mushy peas.
Throw on a side of calamari for good measure.
Yup. You guessed it.
Wings. Glorious wings.
The perfect pre-match meal. You just can’t go wrong. And then choose from one of Ranelagh’s wonderful bars and pubs to watch the showdown between Ireland and New Zealand.
Grubs up. Get that into ya.
