Dame District Foodie Guide

  • Thu, 16 Feb 2017

The Dame District is definitely the epicentre of socialising in #DublinTown, gaining Purple Flag status back in 2013. However, the area is not only full of hopping pubs and steamy salsa nights but bursting at the seams with taste bud-tingling food joints ready to food porn their way into your breakfast, lunch and dinner schedule. #DineinDublin indeed.
