The Best Bakeries In Dublin Right Now

It's obvious Dublin is having a serious bakery moment, and we are The doughnut trend finally got stale, and rising from its yeasty ashes is the artisan bakery. We've rounded up the only list you'll need for the go to bakeries in Dublin, and crust us, we know the score.

City Centre

Bread 41, Pearse Street

No better way to start this list off than with the capital's favourite bakery, Bread 41, the bastions of bread in Baile Átha Cliath. There are never not queues, and they are always whipping up something interesting, like rustic pop tarts, crazy cruffin combinations, and savoury pastries that will make you weak at the kneads. We mean... knees.

No Messin', Smithfield

No Messin' in Smithfield should be on everyone's radar. With fun mainstays on their menu like the Cardi B and the Hun Bun, Proper Order's self proclaimed buttery love child certainly aren't messin' with pastries as elite as this. Don't miss their monthly pie sale, announced via their newsletter, and seasonal specials like the current blood orange Danish.

Bretzel Bakery, Portobello

Dublin's OG Jewish bakery Bretzel opened over 150 years ago, and has been operating out of their Portobello location ever since. Breads like Challah, San Francisco Sourdough, and Round are their, ahem, breadwinners, and they offer smatterings of pastries as well as tasty sambos for lunch.

Ella's Heaven, Talbot Street

Ella's heaven is a Georgian heaven (aka bakery) that specialises in cheese breads, savoury pastries, and fruit and nut filled sweets. When it comes combining cheese with bread, the Georgians are in the elite tier, and the Khachapuri is what you're after. The boat shaped bread is filled with cheese and finished with an egg yolk, to be swirled around and devoured. We'd also walk up and down Talbot Street for their doughtnuts.

The Morning, Pleasant Street

Sourdough buns, fluffy doughnuts, and the flakiest pastries are just some of the things you'll spot on The Morning's ever rotating menu. Open everyday until 16:00, there is no excuse not to stop by and pick up something gorge to gorge on.

Russell Street Bakery, Dublin 1

Russell Street Bakery is a classic French bakery in that area that is not quite Croke Park, and not quite Mountjoy Square, where you will find the lightest, crispiest, and butteriest pastries that we can only assume were crafted by the pastry gods themselves. Or perhaps it was Tartine's Thibault Peigne. Same thing. Read our two minute review here.

Bakeology Treats, The Liberties

This Argentinean bakery in The Liberties have the most incredible alfajores (dulce de leche stuffed cookie sandwiches), empanadas (stuffed savoury pastries), and facturas (think a more buttery and fluffier but less crunchy croissant). A few visits are most definitely on the cards in order to eat your way through Bakeology’s range of ‘alfies’ alone.

Fable, Dawson Street

Just inside that Sprout on Dawson Street, you'll find Fable - a killer little bakery run by Elyse and Kate. Buns, cakes, cookies, and tarts, you'll mainly find sweet things here, with the odd savoury pasty thrown in for good measure. Another flyer of the Imbibe coffee flag, and we aren't complaining. Read our two minute review here.

Hong Kong Taste Bakery, Eden Quay

Char siu buns, pork puffs and Cantonese style egg tarts are some of the very inexpensive, very delicious reasons to visit Hong Kong taste bakery on Eden Quay. Owner/chef King Liu and his team start baking at 5am each morning and replenish supplies of sausage buns, milk bread and pandan swiss rolls throughout the day.

Ayla Turkish Foods, Capel Street

Ayla Turkish Foods on Capel Street is there for all your Turkish baked needs, including (but not limited to): fresh breads, pastries, simit, borek, baklava, Turkish delight, halva and so much more. It's also a great place to stock up on spices.


Blossom Artisan Bakery, Ballymun

Blossom Artisan Bakery in the 'Mun is inside Buddy's Farmer's Market, and run by Xenia and Peter who make everything fresh in house. You'll be pushed to find a better French baguette in the city, and don't skip the sweet stuff. Their menu changes monthly, be sure to check their insta, and word of warning - get there early. They constantly sell out, and with their updated shorter opening hours, you've gotta be the earliest bird in Ballymun to catch those chocolate twists. Read our two min review here.

Elliot's, Phibsborough

Micro bakery Elliot's of Phibsborough shall not be competed with. The Dublin Kings of the maritozzi, and the current lunch item that's having a moment, they're constantly coming up with new ways to make bread and pastries even more appealing. Their Instagram account is cream of the crop stuff.

Gold Ribbon Bakeshoppe, Dorset Street

Bahay started our obsession with Gold Ribbon's pandesal and pan de coco after sending ATF Insiders home with a breakfast package after our Fillipino feast. They recommended toasting the salted bread roll and having it with an egg, and lathering the pan de coco with butter once hot, and breakfast was almost as memorable as dinner the night before. They're also famous for their cakes with ube (purple yam) and pandan, and you can order celebration ones for collection.

Bread Naturally, Raheny

In the sleepy village of Raheny you'll find exceptionally made sourdough at Bread Naturally. Simon May's bread has won countless awards and when it comes to pastry they have the art of lamination down. Go here before hitting up St. Anne's Park for a stroll - hashtag weekend bliss.

Noisette, Rush

Noisette is the bread-child of French-Mauritian couple Vaarsha Baugreet and Jérémy Pastor. Their various sourdoughs, focaccias, cruffins, and the signature hazelnut pain au chocolat from which they get their name, have the people of Rush in a chokehold. Read our two minute review here.

The Rock Bakery, Skerries

Out in Skerries you'll find one of Dublin's most detour-worthy bakeries with a monthly changing menu. The Rock Bakery is a micro bakery that does bread (brown, baguette, bagels, and sourdough), pain au everythings, danishes for days, loaded focaccias, and fancy sambos. It's worth the trek if you're not from around here.


The Bakery by The Cupcake Bloke, Rialto

We love Graham Herterich aka the The Cupcake Bloke's Irish injection to the bakery scene, with his retro biccies (check out that Mikado), famous brack (top with blue cheese for a one way ticket to flavoursville), and obviously his cupcakes, with flavours rotating monthly.

Artybaker, Grand Canal Dock, Kimmage, Sandymount, Dalkey

Southsiders rejoice - Artybaker is taking over, and we're glad to hear it. With four locations now (and a Kimmage wine bar en route), they've come a long way since 2021 when they opened their first Dalkey branch. Their pastries have layers for days and they always have special treats for calendar events like Pride and Valentine's Day. Love the effort.

Una Bakery, Ranelagh

Ranelagh's much needed bakery Una had a little viral moment when they opened up with queues around the corner. We loved their massive custard tart and the almond croissant rendered us speechless. Read our two minute review here.

Camerino, IMMA

Caryna Camerino's bakery Camerino has been capturing the hearts of Dubliner's for years now, one baked good at a time. Famous for her cookies and brownies (her chocolate chip cookie recipe is the only one you'll need,) you'll find these plus more traditional lunch options (think boujie sambos on fresh Challah bread) at IMMA in Kilmainham.
