Known locally as the best breakfast you’ll ever have, Matt The Rashers serves up the best fry in The Pale, and potentially Ireland. The loyalty of their fanbase says it all, with queues out the door for their famous sausages.

2. The Halfway House, Walkinstown

The Halfway House is a gorgeous little tavern, decorated beautifully and full of charm. Their menu boasts some really delicious seafood, and the prices are quite reasonable too.
