Where’s the best brunch spot in Ireland? Check our our top picks!

A lazy Sunday is nothing without a good cocktail and a gigantic plate of eggs/pancakes/French Toast. That's our motto, anyway.

If you're looking for somewhere to ease your hungover head back into the real world next weekend, check out one of these fine Irish establishments…


Whitefriar Grill, 16 Aungier Street, D2
Serving steak by night and brekkie by day, Whitefriar Grill is well on the way to becoming Dublin's number one brunch spot. Advance booking is not just advised but essential for this cosy eatery, which opens for Saturday and Sunday brunch at 10.30am. The lobster hash is to die for – wash it down with a spicy Camden Banger cocktail!

Brother Hubbard, ​153 Capel Street, D2
This bustling café is a great spot for some filling food of a Sunday, with lots of gorgeous little vintage touches to admire while you await their award-winning pulled pork sandwich or Moroccan-style beans on toast. These guys don't have a license to serve alcohol – but their raspberry, apple and rose juice will kill any hangover! Food is served all day on weekends from 10am.


Gulpd Café, ​Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin Street
This hidden spot doesn't open til 2pm on a Sunday but the wait is well worth it for some seriously epic egg dishes, including baked shakshuka eggs in a homemade tomato ragú. Yum. There's always a DJ lined up to spin some tunes, too.


Kai Café and Restaurant, Sea Road
Owned by foodie couple Kevin and Jessica Murphy, Kai is a great relaxed spot to spend a few easy hours of a Sunday. The menu varies slightly from week to week depending on what's in season, but with gems like poppy seed and pomegranate pancakes on the menu, we reckon you can't go too far wrong! Kai opens at 12 – they don't take reservations so get there early!


Arabica Coffee Co, Unit 1, Shannon Street
This small coffee shop is best known for its beverages, but their Nutella and strawberry waffles are not to be missed, along with all the brunch classics you'd expect. Food is served from 9am on Saturdays and 10am on a Sunday.


Harlem, 34 Bedford Street
The artwork and amazing decor alone makes Harlem a worthwhile spot, but luckily their food lives up to the hype too! Their oak-smoked bacon sandwich will ease even the worst hangover, and there is also a variety of sweet and savoury pancakes on offer. Perfection! Food is served from 9am, Saturday and Sunday.
