Over the past few years, brunch has gone from a niche food trend to a weekly ritual, and we couldn't be more thrilled about it! A combination of all the best things in life (sweet treats, savoury treats and, if you're lucky, cocktails!) brunch is the perfect laid-back weekend activity and a hen party must. Brunch in Dublin offers up a wealth of options, so to help you choose which one is for you, we've rounded up 30 of our favourite brunch spots in Dublin, splitting them up into four handy categories - indulgent brunch places, healthy brunch places, all-rounders and weekday brunch places. Just don't forget to book ahead - these spots are in high demand!

1. The Marker

This stylish Docklands hotel has come up with its own version of brunch - Le Drunch, a meal enjoyed exclusively on Sunday afternoons after a solid lie- in, and featuring plenty of adult beverages (Classic Bloody Mary, Peach and Strawberry Bellini, or a smoothie if you're not in the market for an alcoholic drink). The menu features extravagant comfort food (Duck Confit Hash, Irish Craft Beer-Battered Cod) as well as a few more virtuous dishes (Protein Hit Omelette, The Nutri Burger).

This charming café serves a few typically healthy breakfast and brunch dishes, but each of them with a delicious and mildly indulgent twist, so, for example, their Organic Porridge is dressed with cinnamon and cream.
