Things We Are Lovin In Dublin Right Now

Alana Laverty

In case you hadn’t noticed, we think Dublin’s pretty great.

This city has everything, and it’s only getting better. 

So at the end of each work week, we are giving our lovely readers a run-down of what the Lovin Dubliners are lovin’ in Dublin this week by showing some well-deserved love for our personal faves. 

Today’s list range spans from bakeries and tea rooms to gyms and vintage shops. 

Lovin’ something in Dublin this week? Let us know in the comments. We’d love to hear all about it…

1. YourFitness Gym, Harold’s Cross 

I got a free pass on their website last week, tried it out and have to say that I’m SO impressed. 

The gym is enormous and has such an unreal variety of equipment and machines but also has things like resistance bands and foam rollers for public use. 

They also have a little private room for women, if you want some privacy while doing your thang. 

AND they have a protein smoothie/juice bar at reception. 

For €29 a month it’s really a cut above the rest. 

2. Chicken wings — Canal Bank Cafe, Leeson Street

Sister restaurant to beloved TriBeCa, their wings are basically the exact same and NEVER disappoint.

We’re drooling just at the thought of them… 

Opt for mash or mac ‘n’ cheese on the side and let yourself slide blissfully into a food coma. 

They also do killer brunch. 

3. A Store Is Born — Clarendon Street 

Is there anything more satisfying and thrilling than finding the vintage gem of your dreams?

If you’re gonna find it anywhere, it’s gonna be in A Store Is Born — open Saturdays from 11am until 6pm.

4. Camerino Bakery — Capel Street 

This place does everything — from novelty cakes and whopper sandwiches to great coffee and tasty vegetarian treats. 

If you’re in the Capel Street area, make sure to pop in and try something yummy. 


5. Father Ted Night — The Laughter Lounge 

Down with this sort of thing… careful now. 

The Stars Of Father Ted night at the Laughter Lounge is absolutely gas.  

Enjoy stand-up comedy from 3 of the most popular characters from the show, Joe (Father Damo) Rooney, Patrick (Eoin McLove) McDonnell and Michael (Father Stone) Redmond. 

They even include a ‘Lovely Girls Competition’  with prizes for the loveliest girl! It’s an absolutely gas night and is on all weekend.

6. Marie Louise Tea Rooms — Howth 

Nestled in along a row of cafes overlooking the harbour, Marie Louise’s is like being transported right back to your Granny’s sitting room – except waaay nicer.

7. Mooz — Stoneybatter 

This new addition to our favourite Dublin ‘hood is a welcome one. 

And they’ve got you covered for your caffeine fix too, as the coffee on offer is from the ethical and sustainable Marley Coffee – inspired by Bob himself and established by his son Rohan.
