Nice restaurant tucked away in Clontarf.
It's downstairs from the Parlour Bar.
Went for lunch - get there at about 12:30 before it starts to get too busy.
Favorite Dish: The Duck bento box was great - especially with boiled rice and vegetable spring rolls.
Fresh food and great tatse.

Fish & Chips as it should be: fresh cod and crispy chips with salt and vinegar. Mmmmm!!
They have a choice of other fresh seafood as well. Both to eat in (limited seats) and take out.
Favorite Dish: Well - duh! Fish & Chips of course...

A nice bright bar full of young people at the weekend. This is the place I had my first pint of alcohol on Irish soil and guess what it was............................ no it wasn`t Guinness it was Smithwicks Bitter.
Dress Code: Smart clothes,it looked like a trendy place.

Getting to Clontarf:
Bus 130 to Castle Avenue departs from Lower Abbey Street regularly and reaches Clontarf in about 10 mins (traffic permitting, of course).
This service is operated by either the regular green Dublin Bus (double decker) or the brightly yellow CityImp bus and the bus fare is EUR1.40 to Clontarf village.
Getting around in Clontarf:
Definitely on foot or else by bike. Using the bus is not an option as buses only serve the main roads.

Maybe not a real tourist trap, but I was fooled anyway... I thought Clontarf Castle would be a nice castle that you could visit to learn a bit about Clontarf's history. Yes, it is (was) a castle, but nowadays it houses a fancy hotel. The only tour you would get (if at all), is the one from the reception desk to your room...

Favorite thing: Clontarf is located near Dublin Bay. There are a long cycling track and a footpath parallel to Clontarf Road. On a sunny day (or should I say 'on a dry day'), cycle or better still, take a brisk walk along the shore. Inhale the smell of the sea, look out over the bay, watch the sailboats, see the ferries arriving at and leaving from the harbour. It makes you forget the hustle and bustle of Dublin's city centre. At the end of the promenade, you reach the North Bull Wall and pier, leading to North Bull Island. Continue your walk on the beach!
Fondest memory: * Walking or cycling along the seashore (as described above) and on North Bull Island beach
* Walking around in St. Anne's Park
