Does Dublin have any great cheap eats, especially for lunch and breakfast?
Also, where are some good places to eat near Merrion Square, lower Baggot Street, Kilmainham Gaol Historical Museum and St. Stephen’s Green?
I'd appreciate any recs, thanks!
The mermaid is far from cheap as a reccommendation. Guel next door has a fatastic breakfast and large portions. the decor is a bit to be desired but its worth it. The farm I feel is average and streggles with the location. For Lunch Georges Bistro has excellent specials and is located on South Frederick Street. Across from this is Dunne and crescenzi which is nbot pricey and good italian food, pasta pannini and snacks.
Lemon crepe is excellent for breakfast on South William st. Also One of my favourites for breakfast is Elephant and Castle. They even do American style pancakes. Nice food and not pricey.
I wanted to mention a place that I came across while visiting Dublin from New York a couple of weeks ago - The Farm. It 's right near Trinity and focuses on fresh and organic ingredients. I had a delicious fish pie with lots of fresh herbs and my boyfriend had chicken pot pie and spicy wings. Not too expensive either.
You should try Gruel on 68 Dame Street Just down from Trinity, it's a good spot for lunch and Dinner and they even do breakfast although i've never been for it!
Another new place which is fairly cheap is Green Nineteen on Camden Street its good value everything seems to be under a tenner. You could try Jo Burger in Rathmines its a little out of the centre of town but you can get a bus no problem or even walk.
