Cheap eats in Dublin?

My husband and I are visiting Dublin next week and I am trying to find some relatively inexpensive eats in Dublin, which seems like it is rather hard to do!
We will mainly be in the touristy areas,so anything close by would be nice.
Also,if we are to splurge on a good meal, what places are recommended? I have seen a lot about Boxty,but wasn't sure if there is somewhere else that might be better.

  1. There are quite a few threads here about eating in Dublin. Have you checked the search box at the top of the page? Have a great breakfast at Bewley's Cafe (or lunch) - right in the heart of town and the Avoca store has delicious meals, too... not too expensive.

    1. If you really want to try boxty (the food) then I suppose going to Boxty (the restaurant) makes sense. Otherwise I think that the Temple Bar area and it's many restaurants are best avoided.
      My favourites in the city centre where there are reasonably priced set menus are La Maison in Castlemarket, and Pichet. A lot of good restaurants will have a reasonable Early Bird menu served before 7pm.

      1. Hatch & Sons below the Little Museum of Dublin is good and Cornucopia on Wicklow St is delicious healthy fare. L'gueleton is good too
