Why should our dogs miss out on the foodie fun when we’re exploring a new city? Well, the good news is that in Dublin,
they don’t have to! There are a vast array of dog-friendly cafés, restaurants and pubs in the city, and we’ve got some great dog-friendly food establishments to check out.
You don’t need to go far to find our first spot. Amy Austin
is located in the centre of Dublin on Drury Street. As well as being very dog friendly, the food here is delicious. Create your own charcuterie board from their meats, cheese and snacks selection, or try some of their small plates – or both, your dog would want you to get both.
Our next restaurant offers food so colourful that it’s a real shame dogs are colourblind… we bet they’ll still love accompanying you to Nutbutter
regardless! Locally sourced, seasonal ingredients are used to create the BRIGHTEST bowls, tacos, rainbow pad thais and poke in this dog-friendly establishment. Get yourself down to Grand Canal Dock or Smithfield to try it out!
Your doggy companion is also welcome in many Dublin pubs. Head to Europe’s longest pub at the edge of Phoenix Park. Hole In The Wall
dates back to 1651 and your dog is more than welcome to join you as you pop in for a pint and a meal from their à la carte menu. This pub is a great spot in both summer when they have a beer garden, and winter when you and your pooch can snuggle up by the fire here. It’s also worth noting that they have the most incredible Christmas decorations in winter!
This next one is for the dogs… but luckily, it’s human-friendly, too. Under the low lighting and in the warm atmosphere of the Barbers Bar
in Stoneybatter, you can enjoy a meal and a drink with your dog. The menu is Asian-inspired, but we’d recommend the pawmen (chicken broth) with a refreshing bowl of San Pawlegrinno for your furry companion. If it’s your first time here, then be sure to ask if your dog can join the Doggy Wall which is covered in images of happy pups.
Let’s talk cafés now. Urbanity
is located just off the large square in Smithfield and almost everything here is created in-house – they even roast their own coffee beans and make their own homemade dog treats! The weekend and weekday menus differ so check them out ahead of time. Two Pups Coffee
on Francis Street in Dublin’s Liberties
area offers speciality coffees and delicious brunch, as well as having a pastry chef who mixes up their pastry variety regularly! And of course, your pup is welcome too.
Lastly, your dog would probably recommend Brindle Coffee and Wine
on Lennox Street. Their Instagram alone is a dog-lovers haven. Brindle Coffee and Wine specialises in “organic, low intervention wine” and “single origin coffee” and they're open for both sit-in and takeaway for customers and their pooches.
