5 of Ireland’s Tastiest Summer Food Festivals

By Felipe Wasserstein July 22, 2017 (No)
Summer might just be the best season for festivals in Ireland with lots on offer from film, to music, to games and right back to the good old reliable grub! The (usually) clear and sunny weather is ideal for travelling around the country and finding delicious food at great locations.  Most of the festivals combine traditional Irish food with the cuisine of some of the very best international dishes, even more reason to check them out. To help celebrate one of the most important aspects of Irish culture, we at The Sharpe have picked out five food events that are definitely worth seeing this summer. Enniscorthy Rockin’ Food Festival Ideal […]

Picaderos Restaurant Maynooth – Review

By Dean Fitzgerald April 16, 2017 (No)
A decent lunch can make a good day great, or make a bad day less miserable. That’s why it’s important to find out as much as you can about where you’re going to eat, so you can tell if the menu and food they make suits your own palate. Picaderos is an Argentinian grill and Spanish restaurant that offers a range of flavours, varying between spicy, savoury, sweet, and everything in between. They also have gluten free and vegetarian options for those who are so inclined. So where better to have a Thursday early evening meal when you’re not sure what type of food you want? They have whatever you […]

Zizzi Dundrum – Review

By Darren Bates April 4, 2017 (3 Comments)
I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to eating out in restaurants, I don’t mind telling you. Unless a restaurant comes highly recommended by a mate (who knows their sh*t) or via a TripAdvisor review, well then I’m probably not going to eat there. It’s not because I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth (far from it); it’s mainly due to the fear of having a bad meal after forking out 60 quid or so,  it’s my ultimate pet peeve. However, due to a lack of options, I do find myself having to take the odd culinary risk like the rest of us.dundrum It was […]

Alfie’s Restaurant Dublin – Review

By Aoife Crilly March 26, 2017 (One)
Alfie’s restaurant is situated on South William Street in Dublin 2. The central location of the restaurant is ideal for meeting up with friends after work or college and is considered by many to be the perfect place for top quality food and a side of sophistication. The eatery also serves top class cocktails that are definitely worth a try and it’s new lavish décor and sociable staff make it a place you have to visit in Dublin city. What Does It Have To Offer? This restaurant has a great line-up of deals to offer throughout the day. With lunch for €10 and the famed Apres Work weekday dinner for […]

Bistro 53 Restaurant Maynooth – Review

By Dean Fitzgerald March 18, 2017 (No)
When deciding where to go for a nice lunch in a place that isn’t Subway, McDonald’s, Supermacs, etc. in Maynooth, there are a few factors that can make the decision a bit easier: Price – You’re not going to spend a load of money on lunch when there are so many cheaper alternatives. Food – If the restaurant has a theme or certain menu that doesn’t appeal to you, you’re not going to want to go. It’s simple really. Quality – This probably is the most important factor in your decision to be honest. You won’t spend on bad food, it’s just illogical. Therefore, I decided it was best to […]

Boojum Abbey Street – Review

By Evan Coughlan January 24, 2017 (3 Comments)
There are quite literally hundreds of places to get grub in Dublin City Centre, but when I eat somewhere I think it’s so important that 1) the food is good (well duh!), 2) the staff are friendly and 3) that it’s good value for money. I recently ate at Boojum on Abbey Street and I have to say it ticked all of these boxes. The Food Okay, if all you eat all day, every day, are your Mammy’s Sunday dinners, which consist of half boiled veg and bone dry meat, then Boojum isn’t for you ‘cause there’s a real possibility that your mouth will explode from the first bite of […]
