John Kavanaghs 'The Gravediggers'

John Kavanagh’s The Gravediggers has been a part of Dublin since 1833.

I had heard many a tale about this pub – that it was a hotspot with Glasnevin locals and the best craic for a few scoops. It’s a place I had been meaning to visit since I had moved up here and I was so excited to find out what all of the fuss was about.

As much as I adore pub grub on the correct occasion, on this day I was not feeling it.

To my delight, when we sat down we were presented with an interesting tapas menu.

If there’s one thing I adore about Dublin it’s finding random hidden gems that have you almost forcing your mates to check out after being there – The Gravediggers is exactly that.

The tapas menu had a little bit of everything, which is my favourite way to eat. It’s also super reasonable costing between €3-€7 for each well-proportioned option.

You’ll find everything from meatballs, fish cakes, chorizo, mac’n’cheese, flatbread and dips, prawns and crispy pork belly.

(The mac’n’cheese is the dream!)

Every dish was almost better than the last, I was on cloud nine nibbling away with a pint by my side.
