Marco Pierre White

The sun has finally made a reappearance and we, like the rest of the country, are ready to spend the long weekend outdoors. These al fresco dining options are where you'll find us.

The Dylan Hotel

The terrace at the Dylan is a quiet oasis away from the bustling streets outside. For a bank holiday blowout, tuck yourself into a corner and share the seafood platter for two. Go for the optional extra of a bottle of Perrier Jouet if you're feeling particularly spendy. 

Suesey Street

In our opinion, Suesey Street has one of the nicest al fresco dining areas in Dublin. It tends to be a bit of a sun trap on a summer's evening and there are few places we'd rather be. Check out their fantastic cocktail menu and then bookmark this recipe to recreate their delicious petit déjeuner at home. For any veggies out there, they also serve fantastic vegetarian and vegan options.  

Marco Pierre White Courtyard & Grill

A more recent addition to the Marco Pierre White empire, the Donnybrook based restaurant is a family favourite. Go for a Sunday roast with all the trimmings, followed by the apple crumble for a proper feast. 

Fade Street Social

Get a gang together and head to Fade Street Social for tapas and cocktails. The terrace is always buzzing, even in the depths of winter though, so make sure to get there early to nab a sunny spot. 


Right on the canal, Angelina's is a prime spot for a sunny day. We love their brunch menu. A round of mimosas anyone?
