Five Cosy Spots In Dublin To Get A Full Thanksgiving Dinner
Think of it as an early Christmas feed...
Roast turkey, mashed potatoes dripping with butter and gravy, and of course, heaps of creamy dessert. Mmm we're salivating all over our good office shirt just thinking of such a glorious Christmas feed.
But why wait 'til Christmas? We reckon the Americans are onto something good with this Thanksgiving lark.
It's kinda like a practice run for the main event, and bonus points if you've American mates in Dublin; they'll think you're just the best if you take them out for a traditional Thanksgiving in town.

4. The Fitzwilliam Hotel
This spot is just perfect - right in the heart of the city, surrounded by the lovely Christmas lights on Grafton Street and plenty of places to pop in for a pint after.
They place a big emphasis on the food which looks absolutely superb, doing a fancy three-course menu for €55.
5. The Woolshed
Fancy meal not your thing? The Woolshed on Parnell Street is doing a rough and ready turkey dinner for just €14.50, and they'll be showing the NFL games on the big screens.
