Best Spots for Al Fresco Drinks & Dining

Whether it’s after work or on the weekend, this summer’s good weather has seen hoards of people seeking out the best outdoor spots for eating and drinking in Dublin.

There’s been much talk of the rooftop terrace at the Marker Hotel which we haven’t yet visited because of the queues due to its limited capacity,  so Ely and surrounding restaurants with terraces on Grand Canal are all a good bet.

A particular favourite for a quiet bite to eat in their sun filled courtyard is Brassiere Le Pont on Leeson St, while if you’d like casual dining and pizza then Milano (Baggot St Bridge) outdoor terrace is for you.

In Dublin’s city centre, if you can’t find a seat outside the ever-popular pubs that are The Bailey on South Anne Street, or a standing up space outside Keoghs pub, then try Bite restaurant on South Frederick Street which has a great open roof space.

One unsuspecting place is the Vintage Cocktail Club (VCC), which serve cocktails ’til much much later than anywhere else in town under the open air roof on the top floor of this speakeasy located at 15 Crown Alley in Temple Bar. Revellers can enjoy cigars, tapas and a cocktail menu from mixologist Gareth Lamb, with names dating back to prohibition times – all served by retro clad staff.

The Irish Times rounded up the best spots around the country for Al fresco dining which we’ve taken a snap of for you below.
