Where To Get Your Falafel Fix In Dublin

Five of our favourite places in the capital.


Falafel is an absolute favourite in the city centre, with salad bars, cafés and more all offering this vegetarian staple.

Falafel is a Middle Eastern dish made with chickpeas, spices and herbs and it seems that, as a city, we have all fallen in love with it. Whether you like them on a wrap, in a salad or just by themselves dipped into hummus, there's no denying that falafel is a delicious addition to any meal. Read on for five of our favourite places to get falafel in Dublin. 

1. The Cedar Tree

Saint Andrew's Street, Dublin 2

The Cedar Tree is Dubin's longest-established Lebanese restaurant, offering a range of delicious traditional foods. If you're looking for authentic falafel, then this restaurant should be your first port of call. Served with a delicious tahini sauce, this truly is some of the best falafel in Dublin.
