City Guides Dublin: Creative Quarter Dublin

Hanging out in the Creative Quarter in Dublin? Make your way to one of the most important buildings in Irish history. Juxtaposing medieval, gothic revival, and Georgian architecture, all set on top of old Viking grounds, you’ll find Dublin Castle. Stick to the theme of royalty and eat like a king at the best restaurants in the Creative Quarter of Dublin.

Bull and Castle

Looking for amazing seafood and perfectly seasoned beef, all with a view of Dublin Castle? Consider your search over. The Bull and Castle restaurant near Dublin’s Creative Quarter, is a stone’s throw away from this beloved attraction (just a four minute walk). Enough about the architecture though; let’s talk food. Go for the Surf ‘N’ Turf: a 28 Day dry-aged ‘Picanha’ rump cap steak with grilled Dublin bay prawns. Spice things up a bit with the chimichurri sauce and a delicious drink and  you’ve got the makings of a fairytale dinner.
