There's something special about the humble club sandwich, so we're excited to highlight some of the best places in Dublin to find them.
Club sandwiches are usually made with toasted white bread, chicken or turkey, lettuce, bacon and lots of mayo. This tasty sandwich often comes in the double-decker variety, cut into triangles and held together with toothpicks.
Delicious, filling and completely moreish, these sandwiches can sometimes be hard to find – they're a bit of a classic from days gone by – so we decided we had to round up some of our favourites spots for a club sandwich in Dublin. Read on to find out where to get five of our favourites.
Charlotte Way, Dublin 2
Famous for their sandwiches, Doughboys was conceived in NYC, but born in Dublin, so their sandwiches echo the flavours we love about the Big Apple. Their club sandwich truly is something to behold, jam-packed with house-roasted turkey, smoked streaky bacon, smoked applewood cheese, pickled red onion and chipotle mayo. As a bonus, Doughboys is available on Deliveroo, so if you can't make it to their Charlotte Way premises, you can order a club sandwich to the comfort of your own home.
Canal Bank Café
Upper Leeson Street, Dublin 4
Canal Bank Café, sister restaurant of TriBeca, is well-known for its lovely food, especially its sandwich offerings. The club sandwich here is one of the best in Dublin and keeps it classic with chicken, bacon lettuce and tomato, plus an unusual splash of smoked jalapeño mayo. The Canal Bank Café has a great atmosphere and we really like the interior, so this is definitely one of our must-visits in Dublin.
Simmonscourt Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4
If you like your club sandwich with a side of grandeur, then you need to head to the InterContinental in Ballsbridge. The Lobby Lounge serves up the chicken clubhouse sandwich daily, including lemon-scented chicken salad, tomato, crispy bacon and a fried egg with skinny fries. This is easily one of our favourite club sandwiches in Dublin and with a location like the InterContinental, you really can't go wrong if you head down for a bite.
Juniors Deli & Café
Bath Avenue, Beggars Bush, Dublin 4
A Dublin city staple, Juniors Deli & Café serves breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week, but it's their club sandwich that draws us in. A play on the classic Caesar salad, this club sandwich is served on ciabatta and comes with turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese, avocado and Caesar mayo. While it might seem a little out of the box compared to your typical club sandwich, we can tell you it's a very good choice.
The Pig & Heifer
City Quay, Dublin 2; Amiens Street, Dublin 1; Pearse Street, Dublin 2
With three city-centre locations, plus a tapas restaurant in Dún Laoghaire, The Pig & Heifer deli is a Dublin staple. Its expansive sandwich menu includes two types of club sandwiches: the Mile High Club, which includes pastrami, bacon, chicken and ham on a triple layer of bread, and the Turkey Club, which is served with bacon, turkey, avocado, Swiss cheese and tomato. We're big fans of the Mile High Club, but the Turkey Club is a stellar choice too.
