There are numerous choices for dinner in and around Dublin. Below we have suggested restaurants and cafes within a 20 minute walk of the Burlington Hotel.

There are four main areas with plenty of eating options that are within reach of the Burlington. The first is the South City Centre (walk up Lesson Street towards city centre), the second is Donnybrook Village (walk down Lesson Street away from the City Centre), the third is Ranelagh village (South Westerly direction from hotel), and the fourth is Ballsbridge (Easterly direction from hotel).  Most diversity is available in the City Centre, however, the "quieter" suburbs of Donnybrook, Ranelagh and Ballsbridge provide an interesting alternative.
