Make the most of the sunshine with these gorgeous outdoor dining options in Dublin

Restaurants and bars are getting ready to welcome us back to their outdoor dining areas on Monday, June 7 and we're excited to see them.

Nothing enhances the summertime in the city experience better than dining alfresco. From authentic barbecue to dressed up, five-star glam, here are some of the capital’s hotspots.

Suesey Street, Fitzwilliam Place,

Great food and a relaxed vibe, contemporary dishes with decent wine and cocktail options. Suesey Street is all over its food vibe: “Combining local and seasonal produce to create a delicious dining experience”. So, what of its terrace? Suesey Street’s outside area feels luxurious but never stuffy with management and staff always hitting the right note between being attentive and friendly, meanwhile, it all runs like clockwork under the watchful eye of longstanding hospitality pro John Healy.

The Terrace at The Shelbourne, St Stephen’s Green

Five-star luxury, serious attention-to-detail and an airy space that wows at every turn, The Shelbourne’s terrace area is a stunning late-summer bloomer. Food-wise, in keeping with its posh picnic vibes, expect a menu that is heavy on sharing platters that are just perfect for social dining with friends in the centre of the city. Meanwhile, if it’s a boozy (yet responsible!) weekend lunch you’re after, there is also a superb, upmarket cocktail list to pore over.

Saba Secret Garden, Baggot Street

More funky than fancy yet none the lesser for it, Saba continues to churn out its greatest Thai hits in a space that wouldn’t look too out of place in Brooklyn, or any other regenerated urban space where young creatives like to preen. The Secret Garden’s artwork has been painted by Dublin-based graffiti guru, Subset, adding further cool cache to the space. As to the food, as mentioned, it’s Saba’s greatest Thai food hits all the way … if it ain’t broke, etc.

FIRE Steakhouse & Bar, Dawson Street

Next to the Mansion House, the gorgeous garden of FIRE Steakhouse has given them plenty of room to expand. Their terrace is a little sun trap on a nice day and expect to find an ample selection of Irish steak on the menu, and well as some excellent pescatarian options and a sizeable wine menu.
