About Food in Dublin
Dublin wasn't always known for it's fine dining, but it's made huge strides in the last several years. Now, everywhere you turn, there's an incredible new restaurant or cafe with fresh salads and sandwiches, as well as innovative restaurants serving perfectly flavored dishes.
What to Eat?
Unique to Ireland is the pub style vegetable soup. It's nearly impossible to replicate and great for warming up on a cold afternoon. Also try the range of new craft beers popping up in restaurants and bars around the city. Dublin does gastropub style food really well, with fresh local ingredients. Ireland is known for delicious dairy--cheeses, milk and eggs are far better here than many other places.
No need to tip in a bar, but in a restaurant, if the service was good, tip between 5-10 percent.

Lunch ranges from €5-10 per person, and dinner typically runs from €20-30.
