It’s no secret that Ireland is feckin’ gorgeous – we sing its praises on the daily.
But where can you enjoy its views and some great food at the same time, you ask?
As it happens, we’ve compiled a list of the best places for some grub with amazing views across Ireland, so you can plan that road trip with maximum Instagram potential.
1. Keatings – Kilbaha, Co. Clare
Keatings pride themselves on being the “last pub before New York” which is pretty gas, but it’s their view of the mouth of the Shannon River that legitimises their boasting.
2. The Merchants Arch – Temple Bar, Dublin
One of Dublin’s most famous bars but also one of the best views.
Pop upstairs for an unreal view of Ha’Penny Bridge and the length of The Liffey.
3. Glencar Teashed – Glencar, Co. Leitrim
Hands down one of the cutest cafes in the country, the Teashed has an amazing view of Glencar Lake.
Nature, why you so pretty?
4. The Pier Head – Kinvara, Co. Galway
Not only do they offer the best seafood and atmosphere in the area, but there’s a killer view to enjoy it with.
Grab a Guinness and some oysters and get lost in the sunset setting behind Dunguaire Castle – beauty at its best.
5. The Marker Rooftop Bar – Docklands, Dublin 2
Hands down one of the most amazing views of our wonderful concrete jungle.
It’s honestly breathtaking, and perfect for an envy worthy Snapchat story… if you can afford the prices.
6. Reeds at Ferrycarrig Hotel – Co. Wexford
This beaut looks out over the Slaney River, the perfect place to just chill and soak in some evening sun in gorgeous Wexico.
Don’t leave without trying their burgers. Not that we even need to tempt you.
7. The Boat Yard – Dingle, Co. Kerry
Did someone say chowder?
I honestly can’t think of a better place to enjoy some than looking out over the harbour.
8. Guinness Gravity Bar – St James’s Gate, Dublin 8
Dublin’s skyline never looked so good. The Gravity Bar must be added to all bucket lists. Now.
9. Beaches Restaurant at Kelly’s Hotel – Rosslare, Co. Wexford
Rosslare beach is a hell of a spot and Beaches Restaurant are lucky enough to be planted right on it.
So there you have it, a round up of some awesome restaurants in prime locations.
Now start planning those trips.
