Mulligan’s of Sandymount – Sanctuary on a sunny day

When I win the lottery, I plan to buy a house in Sandymount immediately. For now, however, I must settle for frequent visits.

Close enough to the city-centre to be easily accessible (10-15 minutes by DART), it’s also far enough out of town that the pace slows down a little. Sandymount is the cutest village in Dublin, set around a small, grassy square overlooked by bars with outdoor tables, plenty of restaurants, and one of my go-to Gastropubs: Mulligan’s of Sandymount.

Mulligan’s has everything a great local should have. Friendly staff, a cool, classic interior, interesting beers on tap and incredible food that goes beyond usual pub fare (Mulligan’s and their chef were nominated for the 2016 Irish Restaurant Awards). There’s a big emphasis on seafood and steak, and everything comes with work-of-art presentation.

It’s a topic for debate, but I believe Mulligan’s does the best chicken wings in town – a perfect mix of crispy, succulent and spicy. If you’re trying to cram as many tastes of Ireland into your mouth as possible (a noble goal) order the burger, which sandwiches short-rib Irish beef and Dubliner cheddar into a Waterford blaa (a soft, floury bap that hails from the sunny south-east). They also do great brunch (try the steak and eggs) and a Sunday Roast.

To walk off all that food, I recommend hitting the glistening Sandymount Strand, or walking along the Great South Wall to Poolbeg Lighthouse afterwards (check the Poolbeg Lighthouse article). It’s my perfect day!
