These are our top 10 absolute favourite places to eat & drink in Terenure

When was the last time you ventured out to Terenure village? A place that’s more associated with quiet, suburban living than it is with any major foodie scene, it’s fair to say that Terenure isn’t really on people’s radar when it comes to Dublin’s top dining hotspots.

However, it recently came to our attention that the village actually has quite the selection of great quality cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from. From quirky brunch spots with impeccable coffee, to fresh-as-can-be sushi and award-winning pizzas; if it’s a good feed you’re after, we’re here to say that Terenure has something to satisfy your cravings.

Breakfast & Coffee

The Lovely Food Company

14 Terenure Road West

Lovely in name and lovely in nature, here you’ll find some light, healthy dishes alongside the heartier stuff, too. Top it off with a beautiful cup of coffee and you’ve got a truly lovely start to the day. It’s worth mentioning that this place also has a thrifty “early-bird” deal that lasts all night Tuesday-Thursday, with a menu that changes every six weeks, making it an especially appealing option for the easily bored amongst us.

Foam Coffeehouse

3 Terenure Place

Although a relatively recent addition to the Terenure cafe scene, it hasn’t taken the buzzy and bright Foam Coffeehouse long to acquire a reputation as one of the coolest spots in town. In fact, Foam is as good as any of the trendy cafes you’ll find in London or Berlin, and it has the superb coffee and melt in your mouth pancakes to prove it.

Lunch

Tani Japanese Restaurant

93 Terenure Road North

If you have a penchant for sushi, this place is a must visit (especially for lunch, when there is a range of great deals on offer). Delicate, freshly-made, beautifully presented food is accompanied by friendly service and impeccably clean surroundings. The gyozas definitely deserve a special mention, too.

Mayfield 

7-11 Terenure Road North

Mayfield is a quirky restaurant and deli run by two men who both happen to be called Kevin Byrne (Kevin D Byrne and Kevin T Byrne). It’s the kind of place that adorns it’s walls with flamingo wallpaper, and serves tea in mismatched china cups and saucers. Whilst you can expect great quality food at any point of the day, allow us to recommend the banana bread tocurb any afternoon slumps. De-licious.

Dinner

Base Woodfired Pizza

92 Terenure Road East

Founder Shane Crilly started Base in Dublin after coming home from living in London and Sydney and realising that the quality of pizza here simply couldn’t compare. His goal was to create the perfect pizza, and it seems he’s done a pretty good job at that. Base is now often hailed as one of the best pizzas to be found in the city, thanks to its fresh and flavourful toppings which come on top of a thin, crispy base.

Bellagio

92 Terenure Road North

For those who love Italian cuisine, but want more than just pizza, Bellagio promises modern and authentic Italian food in the very centre of Terenure village. Here you’ll find pasta dishes that that never fail to disappoint, giant pizzas that test even the heartiest of appetites, and a widely-praised bruschetta that is nothing short of exceptional.

Vermillion

94/96 Terenure Road North

This is a fantastic option for dinner out with the family, or indeed for a date, as the ambiance is buzzy and the staff are are just the right level of attentive. What’s more, if you’re worried about bringing any fussy eaters along, rest assured the staff are always happy to adjust dishes to cater to personal preferences and allergies. Expect authentic Indian food that is full of flavour, but lacks the fuss.

Drink

Vaughan’s Eagle House

105/107 Terenure Road North

A real focal point at the Terenure crossroads, this pub is steeped in history; being around for as long as anyone can remember and being the place where James Joyce’s mother was born, would you believe? Vaughan’s also promises one of the best pints of Guinness to be had for miles, alongside live music performances that take place on different nights throughout the week.

Green Man Wines

3 Terenure Road North

We’ll admit it, this has to be one of our favourite places to go in all of Terenure. An independent wine shop run by husband and wife team David Gallagher and Claire O’Boyle Gallagher, not only do they have an excellent range of vino, but both the food and table service they provide are a consistent delight. Give us a cheese board and a bottle of their stunning tempranillo any day, and we’re in heaven.

The Terenure Inn

94-96 Terenure Road North

Another great quality local pub, this one has clearly put a lot of effort into making the surroundings look as good as the food and drinks taste. Expect a great selection of gins alongside a superb carvery on the weekend, and don’t knock the curry ‘til you try it – it’s a firm favourite amongst many locals.
