McCormick’s in Mounttown has great food; you could walk or take the 46a bus which is only 4 stops from Dun Laoghaire. Traditional as in ye olden days no but traditional in the sense that food has been served in pubs for a good few years now and you will get the standard/”traditional” affair usually at good prices in the main pubs. Make sure to ask what the specials are in Mc’s as the waiting staff sometime forget to volunteer this. People say the 'Kosy' pub on upper Georges Street is good too, and Weir's does a great lunch time carvery if that's what you like but you have to pass a bloom of smokers to enter the pub. Sunflower Cafe on lower Georges Street does the best breakfast. The Purty Kitchen has awards galore for seafood so if that is your thing I’d head there too. The Royal Marine is good too so remember the far away hills are no.................

We just returned from Dun Laoghaire. We stayed at Royal Marine Hotel and did eat at Hardy's Restaurant in Hotel. It was decent. Also ate at Scott's Pub...also decent. Pretty much the same type of sandwich and pasta menus. We took the DART to Dalkey one night and went to Ivory's Pub. That had a wonderful looking menu. We both had Fish n chips which was very good.

The Gastropub, 100m from the hotel has a good range of reasonably priced food.

One tip..we asked about a DART pass that we could use all day and get off and back on at different stations. They sold us an All day family pass for 2 people that cost 10€ total. It worked and we could get off at multiple stops.

Another two places you may like to visit closeby are Monkstown, either get a bus no 7 from Easons or the Dart only two stops away direction city centre. Here there are plenty of restuarants and you can also eat in FXB's either in the Bar or upstairs in their Restaurant. Alternatively you can go the opposite direction on the Dart to Dalkey 3 stops , and here is a little village with plenty of restuarants and two of the pubs to eat in would be either Finnegans or the Queens. In Dun Laoghaire Walters which is down near the park used to have a good Restaurant and I assume it is still there.
