The Best Restaurants In Dublin To Enjoy This Christmas

One of the best parts of the Christmas season is getting together with friends for drinks and dinners. Luckily, in Dublin we are spoiled for choice for places to visit – in fact, you could try a new restaurant every day of the year for five whole years and not repeat once! With everything from fast food to Michelin Star, it’s hard to decide where is best for your Christmas get-together so we have put together a few of our favourites with something for everyone. If you live too far from the city to commute, book the perfect festive accommodation in PREMIER SUITES serviced apartments in Dublin but be quick, our suites are filling up fast!

Market Bar – 14a Fade Street, Dublin 2

A go-to for group meetings, Market Bar is one of the biggest and best spots to dine with big and small groups in Dublin. They’re located on the beautiful Fade Street and are perfect for a casual get-together for any size party from 2- 500 people. Their menu is mostly made up of tapas and the extensive bar list will keep everyone happy. The Black Market is a unique cocktail bar located upstairs from The Market Bar and perfect for private events. It’s a popular choice for Christmas parties so book soon if you’re planning a visit.

Chai Yo – 100 Baggot Street Lower, Dublin 2

If you’ve never tried teppanyaki, make this the year for the best dining experience you’ll ever have. Chai Yo, situated a short from our serviced apartment accommodation in Dublin, serves a fusion of Japanese, Thai and Chinese but that’s not the main reason to visit. These guys really know how to party! Your table is hosted by a chef who puts on a show as your meals are prepared. Be prepared for plenty of interaction, singing, dancing and making plenty of great memories.

Fallon & Byrne – 11-17 Exchequer St, Dublin 2

From circus acts to fine dining in the formidable Fallon & Byrne. You’ll know for the ground floor grocer and basement wine bar but the star of the show is the restaurant, popular for Christmas parties and weddings throughout the year. The menu is described as slow food with a French-inspired menu and the finest wine list to accompany. Their Christmas menu is second to none with a great variety of both traditional and unusual additions. Their reputation precedes them and the restaurant fills up fast for Christmas.

FX Buckley – 1A Pembroke Street Lower, Dublin 2

Immortalised in the world-famous Ulysses by James Joyce, FX Buckley professes to be the best steak in Dublin and they’re right.

They have a cosy and welcoming atmosphere without feeling stuffy or formal. They have a great cocktail and wine menu to pair with the fantastic quality meat and sides.
