Cue the Holiday Jingles: Christmas in Dublin is something truly special. Celebrate the silly season with us this year and enjoy a truly Irish experience!
From the cosy snugs in Kehoes and The Stag’s Head to the heat of an open fire. We have an abundance of Irish Christmas atmosphere on offer as well as one of the largest selections of gin in Dublin in the Gin Palace worthy of Queen Margaret herself.
Speaking of history, we have just the place for those looking for something historical. Check out The Grand Central, where Irish School of Wireless Telegraphy once sat and the broadcasting of the Proclamation of an Irish Republic via shortwave radio in 1916 was aired. You’re sure to satisfy any historian buff.
If you’re more of a music buff wander up to Thin Lizzy’s old haunt, Bruxelles. While you’re there give them a vote at our voting station for ‘Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’. The bar has attracted other familiar faces such as our very own Michael Flatley, Michael O’Driscoll to Oasis, Snow Patrol and many more. If you’re lucky you may spot a familiar face.
Take a wander down the cobbled streets of Temple Bar before the end of the night and see what treasures old Dublin has to offer. Drop into The Quays for a pint of the black stuff and some craic agus ceoil.
For a true Irish experience. Pop into each of our bars and let us know your favourite… 12 pubs… sure who survives that. Savour and enjoy it with 6!
Outstanding Service and Food! For our evening meal, we made a reservation at the Grand Central Café Bar. We were intrigued by the pictures that we saw on their website. It is housed in an old bank - steeped in history right on O’Connell Street. Our server, Joseph, went out of his way to make us feel especially welcome and attended to our every want and need. He was truly the consummate waiter.My husband started with a Dubliner, 10-year old, Irish Single malt whiskey. Then, we enjoyed a bottle of Paul Mas Merlot – very smooth and drinkable. For our entrees, I had the Lamb Shank that came with mashed potatoes, carrots and broccoli. I just love lamb shanks; so, I was in my element. My husband savoured the Atlantic salmon with mashed potatoes and broccoli. We were intrigued by what we thought were onion rings, but turned out to be just fried onion straws. They were crispy and good. For dessert, he chose the Baileys Irish Cream Cheesecake. It was truly a decadent way to end a delicious meal! Our total bill was € 77.
After cinema dinner We visited The Grand Central on Saturday evening after a matinee and had a great meal with a few drinks. The meal was reasonably priced and the staff were very friendly. We will definitely return.
Stunning! I have just enjoyed a first class and reasonably priced meal at this lovely restaurant, which is situated in the splendid surroundings of an old bank. The food and service were great and the interior is a sight to behold. Absolutely beautiful and finished off with a large Art Deco dome as the centrepiece. I could have sat admiring this interior for hours! Lovely relaxing place and nice staff. Highly recommend.
