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!)
