The Dubliners
Nominated for Best Pub food
© ITP Images

The Dubliners looks and feels like a standard Irish pub that you may come across in the Irish capital, from the old-fashioned ornaments and quirky paintings on the walls to the various vintage artefacts lining its shelves. The venue feels homely and welcoming, and from the moment you walk in, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is straight forward and simple, with no room for flash. What you see is what you get here, and the traditional Irish breakfast is a favourite. Other options include a smoked salmon salad or steak sandwich served on home-made brown bread, which is a little lighter and healthier for pub grub.
Open Sat-Thu noon-2.45am, Fri 11am-2.45am (last orders for food: 11.45pm). Le Méridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre, Garhoud, (04 702 2508).
