First of all, thank you for the helpful threads-I've combed through quite a few. I am posting in case anyone has any updated suggestions!
We are a 30-year old couple on a budget staying in Dublin for 3 nights. Our hotel is in Temple Bar, and I understand this is the expensive area. Husband is not a fan of live music. We like our food and drinks (me wine, him beer) and would love some recommendations for walking distance (or short cab ride) for cheap, cheap dinner, drinks. So far, I've compiled a small list of: Epicurean food hall for lunch- but dinner Davy Byrnes, Ciao Bella Roma, Pygmalion, and all the asian places on Parnell St. What about a good place for oysters?
