Dining In Dublin: Top 5 restaurants just steps away

Table of Contents

Did you know Ashling Hotel Dublin has an excellent in-house restaurant? Chesterfields is well-known for its stylish, relaxed dining atmosphere with first-class service and fantastic options, ranging from traditional to international. While we encourage guests to dine in Chesterfields, we understand you might like to sample the culinary delights outside of the hotel and are happy to make personalised recommendations to guests. If you don’t want to travel far, there are some excellent dining choices on our doorstep.

Nancy Hands Bar & Restaurant – 2-minute walk

For a true taste of Dublin, Nancy Hands is a must-visit. They have a wide menu ranging from traditional recipes to modern and international dishes, perfect for all tastes. Their food is high-quality and prepared using the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Their menu includes club classics like homemade burgers, fish & chips plus beef & Guinness stew, with beer and spirits originating from all across the island of Ireland.  Nancy Hands is more than just a place to grab a bite to eat. They host traditional live music every week in the bar. Some of the best local musicians come together to play all of the classics and some more contemporary songs.

L Mulligan – Restaurant & Bar – 10-minute walk

Another fantastic restaurant supplying the finest Irish food and drink is L Mulligan in Stoneybatter, a 10-minute walk from our 4-star hotel in Dublin. The food menu is seasonal & they work with Irish producers and farmers to feature as many local ingredients as possible. They make most components of their meals in-house including sauces, desserts, bread, preserves and gravy.  Many of their dishes are vegan, organic and free range and all are packed with flavour. Their charcuterie board to share is a highlight with samples of many tasty meats, cheeses, and accompaniments. Their drinks menu is as impressive as the food menu with syrups and garnish made on-site from their allotment. It’s a fantastic option for dining in Dublin.

Grano – Restaurant – 10-minute walk

Aside from local food, there is nothing we are more excited by than pasta. Grano, a renowned Italian restaurant a short walk from Ashling Hotel Dublin, has taken the premise of Calabrian family recipes and transformed it into a wholesome dining experience. Freshly made pasta is combined with the finest Italian flavours and recipes for a simple but fantastic dish, every time. They have gluten-free pasta too so celiacs need not miss out. Aside from the pasta and starters, their homemade desserts will stay with you for as long as you can remember. The impressive wine list has something for anyone who appreciates Italian winemaking. It’s a busy spot so be sure to make a reservation.

Soup 2 – Restaurant & Bar– 15-minute walk

Soup 2 describes itself as a modern Asian diner with cocktails & craft beer. Inside there is a laid-back, casual atmosphere, ideal to catch up with friends or family. A former pub, the restaurant is now filled with colour and music. Their menu has some of the best ramen in Dublin (possibly Ireland!) at very reasonable costs. When you look behind the scenes, you’ll see everything is made in-house from the noodles to the broth and all of the fermented food like Kimchi and Kombucha. Soup 2 is vegan, pet and family-friendly with plenty of large tables for groups. We recommend trying some of their house cocktails to experience the unique flavours.

Ukiyo – Bar, Restaurant & Club – 20-minute walk

Having opened in 2004, Ukiyo has gone from strength to strength not only as an excellent dining establishment but as one of the hottest, hippest late bar and nightclubs in Dublin. Their menu is a fascinating and delicious mix of Asian flavours and ingredients, perfectly blended for the unique Ukiyo experience. You’ll find sushi, oysters, curry, bao and noodles combining flavours of the East paired with delicious wine, beer and cocktails. Private dining is available in Uykio is available for groups of 8 to 10 guests with karaoke and other entertainment. At night the club opens to over 18s for a fun night with live DJs and entertainment.

The Dining scene in Dublin is fantastic and getting better with new openings every week. If you’d like to try Chesterfields Restaurants or book a stay in Ashling Hotel Dublin make a booking on our website
