Top Kid Friendly Restaurants in Dublin

Updated: Jan 28, 2020

Dublin City Mum all started with food. As parents we spend most of our days either preparing, eating or scraping it off the floor. It comes first after love in our house! Eating out with kids shouldn't be a nightmarish experience or a compromise on quality just because you have the kids in tow. Forget sausages and chips! If you enjoy good food, and eating out with your kids in Dublin, check out a few of my family friendly recommendations.

The cafes and restaurants below are listed in no particular order. I've narrowed it down to a few of my favourites but more could have squeezed in! Quality of food is first and foremost the priority, followed by general kid friendliness, highchairs/baby changing facilities, crayons and kids activities, and space for buggies.

Gaillot et Gray

⌂ 59 Clanbrassil St Lwr, Dublin 8

Pizza | Highchairs | Info

Wood fired French style sourdough pizzeria to make your mouth water, a bookshelf bursting with kids books, colouring pencils with paper and an outdoor terrace - Gaillot et Gray has it all. Serving artisan breads, pizzas, speciality coffee, indigenous herbal teas, wine and beer, it's our go to Friday evening pitstop with the family. This is quite possibly the most kid friendly restaurant in Dublin (although I'm reluctant to mention that as it's our neighbourhood favourite and still want to be able to get a table at the weekend...or any day of the week!)

Brother Hubbard North

⌂ 153 Capel St, Dublin 1

Kids Menu | Highchairs | Baby Changing Facilities | Info

Open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner 7 days a week, Brother Hubbard North serves great coffee, the tastiest and most creative food as well as a warm and friendly welcome. The food is absolutely sublime and bursting with flavour. It's massive so there's tons of space for buggies. There's a great kids menu, and the younger ones can also eat eggs and toast from the side menu. If you haven't been, go. It's a family friendly weekend must and the food is incredible.
