Here’s a list of some of the best Irish restaurants in the city:
1. The Late Late Bar
Set in the vibe of a 1960’s Irish house, the Late Late Bar is also named after the popular tv show The Late Night Show! This little bar also serves some exceptional dishes that you would hardly find outside of Ireland. The dish to try is the traditional crisp sambo – A sandwich made with Tatyo cheese and onions fries, a killer stout relish and cheese and mayo spread on a bun!
2. The Wheeltapper Pub
If you ever want to feel like you’re in a typical restaurant in Ireland, this pub with two bars, an outdoor space, a fireplace and comfort food full of Irishmen and women will do the trick. Get the Irish potato skins for a divine experience. The skins come bursting with Guinness cheddar, Irish bacon, and sour cream.
Lillie’s is the Irish version of a home away from home. It doesn’t matter where you’re from, what language you speak or how old you are, you will feel welcome, here. The dishes not to miss are the chicken pie, Irish sausages and shepherd’s pie! The drink menu offers traditional Irish beer among other spirits to go with your grub.
