A Little Bit of Blarney at Dublin Docks
I visited Ireland a few years ago and find visiting one of the Irish-style taverns brings back great memories, though I don't seem to be there when wonderful Irish music is being played. Still, that's no reason not to go!!
Entrance to Dublin Docks
My son and I visited for lunch at Dublin Docks at Biggera Waters. It's in the Harbour Town precinct – just north of one of my other Irish-sounding favourite places, Dan Murphy's!
We were at Dublin Docks for a quick lunch, and both ordered the Lunch Special – steak with a choice of sauces, with chips and salad. Both meals came very quickly. He ordered medium to well done, and I ordered well done. Mine was a bit too well done, but I loved the salad and the crispy chips. Only minor disappointment, but not enough to turn me off going.
Steak, salad and chips
The last time I visited was a number of years ago, and the family sat outside listening to the music and singing provided by my son and his music partner at the time. (Sadly he's not doing much entertainment these days). On this visit the wind was a bit chilly so we enjoyed our meal inside.
I had to shut my eyes and imagine the Irish Music – for there was none playing in the background! I would have loved that!
It certainly is a busy and popular destination, and the very friendly and helpful staff were kept busy while we were there.
The Menu had plenty on offer – and on a better day, it would have been lovely to sit outside with a view over the canal.
