Hen parties regularly report back that brunch is the best part of the whole Hen party weekend. That’s why it’s important to plan in advance to get the best spot.
InstaTours Hen parties regularly do this before any tour, after having tasty food, everything is easier in life. Here we give you the rundown of our top 5 spots for a Hen Do brunch,
Retro Bottomless Mimosas
One of Dublin’s coolest brunch spots and best bottomless mimosas belong to Thundercut Alley. They’re famous for their Mexican themed brunch with nachos, tacos and proclaim themselves a quirky weird spot. Indeed they match their local area of Smithfield which is one of Dublin’s new hipster neighbourhoods. Their marketing can be quite provocative but this could be an exact for Hendom energy for the trip. Their bottomless brunch is on Saturday and Sunday and be sure to book in advance to secure a table.
This review summed it up nicely from Opentable: “Very nice atmosphere, the place is decorated well, very retro. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are very good! You can’t beat the bottomless mimosas, they actually bring out bottles so you can definitely drink as much as you want.”
Sunday is the best Drag
Home to the famous Sunday drag and bottomless drinks, Bow Lane Social gives you beats (live DJ with you enjoy your meal), brunch and prosecco along with a drag show one Sunday a month. This place will get you in the mood with their Facebook describing their Saturday brunch service as “crazy busy”. It’s the brunch spot to get you in the mood for a big weekend with the Hen party. They are well priced 25e per person excluding the brunch, for two hours. Their pick of the menu would be their Eggs Benedict as well as their Crab and King Prawn hash.
Based in the heart of Dublin city so it’s an easy walk from any public transport or Hen activities, they have a great quote on their menu of “No chugging, we want you to walk out, not fall out!”.
A Meat Lovers brunch
Another highlight for bottomless brunch, served in the middle of Dublin’s party district of Temple Bar , the restaurant of Cleaver East gives you the option to add unlimited Mimosas or Bellini’s for €20. It’s served between the hours of 12pm and 3.30pm with 1hr45m for the bottle service so you need to get in early to enjoy the fun of this brunch. For their menu, they are for 2 courses for 30e and 3 courses for 35e.
They have a heavy focus on meat with short rib tacos, open steak sandwich and poached eggs/crispy bacon as their most ordered items.
Panorama of Dublin for brunch
For a fancy brunch with a stunning view of Dublin, Sophie’s is highly recommended. They jokingly say the weather is their wallpaper on their bio so hopefully the sun shines if you visit. Their brunch menu is filled with options such as pancake stack, The Works (full Irish) and the amazing French toast, including drinks, this option will stretch the pocket compared to others so be prepared. The location is central and helpfully beside a tram station . From reading reviews, their service can be sometimes busy especially on bookings so best to call after you book online to confirm. It would be a bad scenario if you turn up with your Hen party and not enough seats for everyone.
Rated Best brunch in Dublin
Urbanity comes out on Tripadvisor as the best reviewed brunch spots in Dublin, the problem is that it’s always booked! They’re known for their coffee roastery so be sure to get a coffee when you’re there to enjoy the freshness and great quality. More of a casual and healthy brunch, it’s situated again in Dublin’s hipster district of Smithfield.
This review on Tripadvisor really says it all.
Modern, innovative food and drink without being pretentious
Always have a really super meal at Urbanity. It’s tucked in around the corner from Smithfield Square so it’s pretty central without being crowded.
The menu usually changes around every few months – their Christmas specials are always something I look forward to.
I had a really delightful Berber style eggs with a Christmas touch, the eggs in particular were so good, layers of flavor in a creamy texture.
Really glad to see this place still going strong through the last year, one of Dublin’s better establishments. Style & substance without the annoying hipster stuff a few of the other darling establishments lean too heavily on.
