Hungry? Here are five places to grab brunch in Dublin 6

Spoiled for choice, so you are.

1. Dillinger’s, Ranelagh

An absurd amount of food but boy was it good! #fatties #bacon #sundaybrunch

Dillinger’s is the perfect place to indulge and loosen the waistband of a weekend.

Its menu is full of brunch stalwarts like nachos, huevos rancheros and, of course, a full Irish, and they do excellent cocktails if you’re feeling bold. We personally recommend the Bloody Mary. After all, what’s better than bacon and alcohol?

2. Exchequer Wine Bar, Ranelagh

The Exchequer Wine Bar caused waves a few months back when they introduced the city’s first ‘bottomless prosecco brunch‘. (All the prosecco you want for €15 — the dream!)

In addition to generous servings of prosecco, they also serve up rather excellent brunch fare and they have a very nice roof garden. Two thumbs up.

3. Fia, Rathgar

A new kid on the block that’s quickly establishing itself as one of the nicest spots in Dublin 6, Fia serves excellent, locally-sourced food that’s deceptively simple, but incredibly delicious.

Coffee and eggs never tasted so good.

4. Beckett & Bull, Harold’s Cross

This cosy, cool restaurant on Rathgar Avenue does all the usuals – huevos rancheroes, pancake and Irish breakfasts – as well as bottomless mimosas.

*dies and goes to heaven*

5. Mayfield, Harold’s Cross

Mayfield might be one of the most underrated brunch spots in the area. With quirky interiors and whopper food, the Terenure eatery might be one of the most underrated brunch spots in the area.

Go if you fancy trying somewhere unique and different. (And if it’s sunny, try have your food in the little courtyard. You won’t regret it.)

6. Farmer Browns, Rathmines

Farmer Browns has been a bit of an institution in Beggars Bush for some time now, so Dublin 6 denizens jumped for joy when it was announced that it would be opening a second branch in the heart of Rathmines.

Fortunately it lives up to its predecessor and is well worth the trip.

Chow down nachos and French toast *or*  treat yourself to one of their renowned burgers and sandwiches. (We’re partial to the Cuban Pork.)
