Old school Dublin
I appreciate this question maybe paradoxical but my sisters and I are taking my father(born and raised Dubliner whose idea of a great meal is grilled fillet of plaice, roast potatoes and peas) on a return trip to Dublin and I was wondering if someone can recommend a couple of great old school restaurants.
In the past, we've had mixed success at the Guinea Pig in Dalkey.
Thanks in advance
Daniels restaurant in Sandycove might be what you are looking for foodwise. It's nice old fashioned food correctly prepared and cooked. It's not a luxurious room and can sometimes be fairly empty (it doesn't attract an "in" crowd!).
I can't think of anywhere else offhand, but will think about it.
