The Best Outdoor Dining in Dublin: The Intercontinental Dublin

On a sunny day there is no nicer place to eat out than in the newly decorated veranda of the Intercontinental Hotel in Ballsbridge. Following some design work the veranda now has been decorated with floral murals and has heating.

Luckily for the Intercontinental Hotel, they are one of the few city hotels that do have a commodious outdoor space. The Intercontinental also has a spacious Garden Terrace off the bar surrounded by trees and shrubs and is ideal for dining, or cocktails al fresco.
