Nothing in particular hits me about the food there. It is pleasing for American tastes.

We have been to almost every large.European city numerous times. And we found Dublin to be about our least favorite of them all--and very expensive.

Well I think the food is good, Gallaghers Boxty, The Pigs Ear are 2 I recommend, but this question has been asked before so search this forum and I’m sure you will find more.

Try Leo Burdocks. It is a take away fish and chips place. My cousin and I can still taste the deliciousness of the food. They have a few places around the city. Google them.

My favorite meals were the pub lunches - thick hot vegetable soup made daily, served with fresh-baked brown soda bread and butter for about €5-6. That and a pint, you're set till dinner. I didn't have any memorable meals, but it all tastes better with a pint before and a pint during.

Speaking of pubs, the Literary Pub Tour was excellent!

I apologize that I forgot to mention that I don't drink alcohol.
I totally understand 'my beverage of choice dictates my establishment decision' mentality. When in Germany, a common answer from guides was to know which hofbrauhaus serves the beer you enjoy, then, eat there.
Since that's not a criteria for me, let me be more specific.
Although I eat very little fried foods because it gives me indigestion, I may venture a fish and chips luncheon.
I'm thinking more along the lines of traditional dishes and farm-to-market restaurants. I do enjoy stews, chowders and soups so those are very good options, thanks.
Also, I had read somewhere sometime back about a indoor farmer's market area or something like that NorthWest of Trinity college.

My wife and I flew up to Dublin this past spring for a visit and enjoyed our dinner at Green 19 on Camden Street, a quick walk SW of St. Stephen's Green. It has a short, but varied, menu, and -- in my experience at least -- the shorter the menu the better the food, in general.

Pubs have non-alcoholic drinks and are always friendly. Many have live entertainment in the evenings, sometimes also afternoons. Often the bar menu is pretty limited but there will be restaurant seating with a full menu upstairs.
