7 Places In Dublin With Decor As Good As The Food

In the last few years, Dublin has seen a serious surge in eateries and watering holes that could rival those of New York and London. We’re not just talking about what’s on the menu either, the new spots are all trying to out-cool each other with the interior design too – something we’re all for of course! We’ve put together a little list for you if you’re all about #TilePorn as well as #FoodPorn.

1. Union 8 – Kilmainham

It’s like a little Meat Packing District vibe in Dublin 8 with natural elements like brick, concrete and wood paired so sleekly together. It’s mid century furniture makes for a relaxed setting for brunch but warm pendant lights and their wine bottle display shelves shout Saturday night too.


2. Sophies, The Dean – Harcourt Street

It’s probably the only venue in this list where we’ll count the view as part of the decor. There’s no avoiding it’s almost seamless blend in with the industrial decor in this über-trendy restaurant. They get major points for their geometric centre piece that is the bar, and they’re booth style seating makes for an intimate space alongside a bustling atmosphere.


3. House – Leeson Street

The biggest problem with the interiors in House is deciding which area to sit in – it’s just all so well designed. Between the coyness of the inside bar, the stylish conservatory or Summer-vibe garden, there’s a chair for every one of your moods.


4. Urbanity Coffee – Smithfield

New to Smithfield, this aptly named cafe oozes an urban edginess with it’s graffiti fonts and industrial elements. They made a feature punch with their enormous coffee roaster displayed on the cafe floor, as well as the beautifully crafted counter made from old rafters.


5. Drury Buildings – Drury Street

A definite favourite of ours, the Drury Buildings super trendy interiors is a stylish haven of parquet floors, exposed brick walls and retro chic. It’s small garden patio is equally as pleasing to the eye and is just an extension of the ever so cool interiors.


6. Angelinas – Baggot Street

Geometric tiles (on the floor and walls), statement lights and well thought out ceiling design – need we say more? The steel framed windows at the entrance is just the start of things to have your interior-design eye catch.


7. Suesey Street  – Leeson Street

Another venue that has an equally stylish terrace to challenge the interiors is the relatively new Suesey Street. Inside there’s Art Deco vibes with suave leathers and velvet arm chairs, whilst outside is filled with rattan furniture and Summer yellows – they get extra brownie points for their indoor/outdoor fireplace feature.
