Below is a list of places to eat that Willk has sorted for us.

We will need to book asap once we have the weather sussed, remember it’s a Saturday night so most places will be busy.
Pikey Dave has suggested Chinese or Indian, I,m thinking that way we can all throw some money into a kitty and it will be easier to sort the bill
Any input will be appreciated.
Myself i,m a Steak and Guinness man but i,m happy to go with the majority

Food:
Centre of town ( < 5 mins walk from marina )
Bits & Pizza’s – Patrick Street (Pizza Restaurant | Pizza delivery | Takeaway Pizza | Online Pizza ordering | Patrick Street | Dun Laoghaire | Co Dublin | Ireland – good food, small and reasonable )
Harry’s Cafe bar – Upper Georges St. (Harry's Cafe Bar | Dun Laoghaire | Open daytime and Nightime – good mix of food )
40 Foot Bar and grill (The Forty Foot – posh pub grub with a nightclub upstairs! )
Alexis ( Alexis Restaurant 2 doors up from Bits & pizza’s )

In town but 5-10 minute walk
Toscana – Windsor Tce. (Italian) – (Toscana - Dun Laoghaire - Dublin make sure you choose Dun Laoghaire )
Yung’s (Chinese) (http://www.menupages.ie/dublin/south...rant/Menu.aspx ) Good food, sit in restaurant offers early bird deals etc.

Pub Grub
Walters (http://www.menupages.ie/dublin/south...ters/Menu.aspx)
Any of the hotels

A little further away (10-15 minute walk) Monkstown Village

FXB’s (FXB Steak and Seafood Restaurant, Monkstown Dublin: Home Page)
Radhuni (Home / Radhuni Indian Restaurant - Dublin)
Victoria ( http://www.menupages.ie/dublin/south...sine/menu.aspx – great spot and large groups are no problem with a booking )
Avoca (Avoca - Explore Avoca, Avoca Stores, Avoca Locations, Avoca Cafes, Avoca Throws)
Bistro Spice (http://www.bistrospice.ie/)

All the above are pretty much next door to each other on the same street

I know I'm the new boy on this, and as such happy to go with the flow. However if you're looking for input then 40 Foot Bar and grill (The Forty Foot &ndash; posh pub grub with a nightclub upstairs! ) sounds the go to me.

Counting the days now......

What! You visit a country renowned for it's excellent beef and superb malting barley (not to mention clean seas teaming with seafood) and settle for a Surf n Turf & Guinness?

How about a curry Tony? Or a No.53 with exa plawn clakka?

Yes. I always carry photo ID when visiting the UK by independent means. Generally I take my passport, on the grounds that if I meet a "difficult" Ossifer of the Lew, it will be more "useful".
