Is there anything better than the Irish staple meal that is the full Irish breakfast?
This day and age, going out for breakie can often result in fancy poached eggs or a smoothie bowl – which are fab of course, but for some reason I always find myself going back to a tasty fry up.
Here’s some of the best in our fair city:
1. Gerry’s Coffee Shop – Montague Street
Gerry’s is the mecca of Irish breakfasts.
Their sausages are the buis.
2. Farmer Browns – Rathmines
Farmer Browns makes the crispiest streaky bacon around.
What I also love is that they serve a poached egg rather than a fried one.
Add their thick cut bread to the mix and you’re onto a winner.
3. Bay – Clontarf
Their mushrooms are a force to be reckoned with.

4. Matt The Rashers – Kimmage
If you’re into a meaty plate, this is the place for you.
You can get five kinds of meat on your plate along with some killer hash browns.
5. Woodstock – Phibsborough
Load up your plate with whatever you like – it’s like a pick’n’mix but so much better.
6. Gourmet Food Parlour – Swords
Oh the fry, fry baby please don’t let me goooo…
This is the good stuff.
7. The Hairy Lemon
If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.

This trendy café in Harolds Cross is such an amazing spot for breakfast.

9. O’ Neills Pub – Suffolk Street
This pub is over 300 years old and even though you might associate it with a traditional pint of the black stuff, their fry up is definitely worth popping in for.

A breakfast of champions.
