Gallaghers Boxty House (Dublin) 2023 : Review

Visit & Vibes

I decided to take a flight to Dublin just for the day, check out the sights and just see what happens before heading home later that day.

After landing while I was standing looking out at O’Connell Bridge, I remembered the name Boxty and that Philip Rosenthal (Somebody Feed Phil on Netflix) visited somewhere near and it had Boxty in the name.

I did a quick check and yes it was just around the corner from me so I thought, let’s go around get some breakfast and see if I can try a boxty.

On entering we were shown to our table, and I had a wee look around. This was very nice, it had a nice atmosphere and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

The Food

So I knew I wanted to try a boxty so it didn’t matter if it was on its own or with something and I spotted this…

Full Irish Breakfast €15
Traditional Irish Breakfast with Sausage, Irish Bacon, Mushroom, Baked Tomato, Black Pudding, Fried Eggs, and Boxty Pancake…

I asked for the tomato and mushroom to not be included and if possible to substitute them for another boxty and they said sure.

On arrival, this looked very good and had a great aroma, and I could see two Boxtys so I couldn’t wait to try them first and see what they were like.

So let’s start with the Boxty, the best way I can describe it is a potato pancake that’s not as fluffy and is a little sweeter.

I actually enjoyed it and I am glad I managed to get two, as they were gone right away.

Everything was perfectly cooked and I enjoyed every bite! the Boxty and the sausage were the standout foods here for me…both sooooo good!!!!

Pink Lemonade €5

Along with my breakfast, I wanted something fizzy to start with before I go to the Guinness Storehouse and get lots of Guinness.

I spotted this and thought let’s give it a go, as I normally only ever have normal lemonade.

This was a perfect starter drink for the day, it was light, had really good flavour and worked very well with my breakfast.

Final Thoughts…

I had a great visit here today, it was a great start to my day and the breakfast was very good.

I enjoyed trying my first boxty and would easily come back here again when I visit Dublin again.

I have no issues with anything from today’s visit, so I am adding it to my top spots page.
