One of the original Dublin gastropubs, L Mulligan Grocer is in a league of its own. Irish produce prepared and cooked beautifully, an eye-poppingly large beer selection and a lot of gin. They also have a natural wine list and a great choice of non-alcoholic drinks for the drivers, teetotallers or under 18s.
