This week we have major musicians in Dublin City, but before you rock the house, you should line that stomach and get something to eat!

Dublin city centre is filled with great eateries that will feed the soul before you enjoy a night of great music, whether it’s for Ed Sheeran or The Rolling Stones, there is s something for everyone.

Here’s our recommended places to grab a bite to eat in Dublin before a gig:


Alfies on South William Street is one of Dublin’s best casual restaurant and bar venues. Multi-level dining allows everyone to have the best seat in the house. The restaurant’s signature menu is a combination of Irish and Mediterranean cuisine.

BoBo’s Burgers

Describing itself as a neighbourhood diner, BoBo’s is where you can get Real Gourmet Irish Burgers. All beef burgers are 7oz ( 200g ) patties made from top quality prime young Heifer meat under 24 months old supplied by a Master Butcher. 100% Irish and fully traceable. Exactly what you need before a big night!


Great spot to sit and absorb the atmosphere whether you’re in the bar or outside people watching as you munch. They serv lunch from 12 noon – 6pm, 7 days a week and have an evening menu on Sunday to Thursday serving from 6pm-9pm. Why not try their Galway Mussels or a good aul Irish Guinness Stew?

Davy Byrnes

Anybody who is familiar with Dublin pub food will be aware of Davy Byrne’s food reputation, in which seafood and their Gorgonzola Sandwich is a speciality. When you visit the premises on South Anne Street, you will witness the huge trade which is done in fresh salmon, smoked salmon and crab dishes.


Flanagan’s is located in the heart of DublinTown on O’Connell Street serving fresh and tasty, offerings in a wide range of options across starters, mains and desserts.

The Yarn Pizza and Booze

The Yarn is exactly what it says – Pizza and Booze! Located on top of The Woollen Mills on Liffey St, you will find the best pizza for you or to share. There signature crispy base means its easier to walk around with as you enjoy the view. Overlooking the iconic Ha’penny Bridge, you can see Dublin at a different angle.


WigWam, located on 54 Middle Abbey Street, is a hip live music venue with a cool cafe/bar turning out delicious food and drink. From bar bites to main dishes like Jerk Chicken Skewers; Nachos or Minty Picnic Salad, their playful take on food is just as fun as the venue itself.
