50 things to EAT in Dublin Jar Launches
After the success of '50 things to do in Dublin', the designers behind this quirky idea of a-guide-in-a-jar has launched a new edition, which is 100% dedicated to food.
"With the incredible food scene on show in the capital, from Michelin-star meals to tasty little bites to enjoy at the counter, the jar is the perfect present to guide you through the best eats this city has to offer."
More than just a good guide, the jar is a homemade craft gift, which sits quite beautifully on your

looking for a brunch place, a restaurant for a special occasion or a little treat, just open the jar
and let fate decide for you!
