The Best Breakfast In Dublin!

Start your day of sight-seeing with the best breakfast in Dublin!

Full Irish breakfast

Kilkenny Café in Nassau Street (in the heart of Dublin City) is the place to fuel up before you embark on a day filled with exploring Dublin’s historical landmarks.

Open from 8.30AM, we offer the original full Irish breakfast along with a range of cakes and pastries including our famous scones. For the health conscious diners, we serve delicious over-night oats and granola bowls loaded with fresh fruit and nutty toppings.

Kilkenny Café has been a firm favourite with locals and tourists over the years due to its welcoming team and ambience combined with great food!

We have put together a little itinerary for how you could spend your day in Dublin both dining and sight-seeing!

Your first stop is the Book of Kells, housed in the Old Library of Trinity College. This illuminated manuscript, a masterpiece of medieval art, is a testament to the skilled craftsmanship of the past. A stroll through the Long Room of the Old Library, with its towering shelves of ancient books, is like stepping back in time.

Next, after walking past Molly Malone, head to the Guinness Storehouse, voted Ireland’s most popular tourist attraction. Here, you can immerse yourself in the history of Ireland’s most famous brew. The journey through the Storehouse ends at the Gravity Bar, where you can enjoy a complimentary pint of Guinness while taking in panoramic views of Dublin City.

Head over to Phoenix Park where you can rent bikes and explore this stunning park, you may even spot the deers! Stop for a coffee and pastry in The Phoenix Park Cafe or Phoenix Park Tearooms. Both also serve a selection of hand-crafted sandwiches, toasties and hot meals.

Conclude your day with a leisurely wander down Grafton Street, Dublin’s premier shopping experience. The street is alive with street musicians and a buzzy atmosphere, and lined with a variety of shops, from high-street favourites like Brown Thomas to local boutiques. It’s the perfect place to pick up a memento of your Dublin adventure!

And if your hungry after all that sight-seeing, you can always pop into us for a delicious meal or carvery. All our food is freshly prepared on site each day using local Irish suppliers and created with passion by our kitchen team.
