The Ranelagh is known for its expensive houses but also has a good value restaurant

Dublin is an expensive city to eat out in, and it’s going to get worse. Rents are higher, produce bills are rising every week (alarmingly, according to a chef friend), and we’re probably going to have to put up with it and refrain from blaming restaurants. Staffing is still a huge problem and restaurant chains […]
