f you’re considering traveling or moving to Dublin, one thing to keep in mind is the food. Contrary to popular belief, eating and drinking in Dublin doesn’t need to break the bank. It’s all about knowing where to head for – essential if you’re going to be living and working in the emerald city for a time. For every chic fusion eatery in the city centre, there’s a straight-up pie and pint establishment just around the corner. We heartily recommend that you try a bit of both while you’re in Dublin.

Lock’s Brasserie £££

1 Windsor Terrace Portobello Dublin 8, Ireland +353 1 420 0555 locksbrasserie.com

Dublin’s most modest Michelin star resides in this pretty restaurant overlooking the Grand Canal. Serving up the freshest in both French and Irish produce, Head Chef Keelan Higgs orchestrates a heavenly menu divided equally between meat and fish. You’ll find Lock’s in the trendy Portobello area of Dublin, five minutes by taxi from the hustle and bustle of Temple Bar. Try and get a window table, then enjoy the leafy calm as you watch the swans drift past. Bliss.

Fallon and Byrne ££

11-17 Exchequer St Dublin 2, Ireland +353 1 472 1010 fallonandbyrne.com

A bit of a Dublin institution, Fallon and Byrne is a delectable food emporium and wine cellar for everything from cheese to pastries, jars of lovely condiments and aisle upon aisle of colourful organic produce. You can also book for a proper sit-down lunch or dinner at the upstairs restaurant lunch, or just grab a sandwich to take away – they’re pretty awesome. Try the epic charcuterie board if you’re staying in to dine, and the club sandwich if you’re eating on the go. Yum yum yum.
