Recently, Mr. Waffle and I went for dinner in our local gastro pub [insert obligatory ‘it’s far from gastro pubs we were reared’ comment here]. The main course was €29.90 and I thought to myself, that is quite pricy, is it not?
A couple of weeks ago at work, I felt a little sorry for myself and decided to go to somewhere nice for lunch – not super nice Michelin starred, white tablecloth now but nice and newly opened. I arrived at 12.45 on a rainy Wednesday in January looking for a table for one only to be told that they were fully booked, sorry.
Where will it all end?
this is because we are coming to Ireland – the price will peak as we arrive and there will be a crash as our ferry leaves
I am always gobsmacked by restaurant prices in Ireland. Dingle for example, I know is touristy, but it is easily more expensive than London/Paris/New York. In general the price of a main course in Dublin buys a whole meal with drinks and service in London. (However, I will add irrelevantly that cinema is delightfully cheap in Dublin – swings and roundabouts).
Heather, that could be true alright. Will block book dinner out for September.
N, you think that cinema is cheap in Dublin? Am horrified at the thought of how expensive it must be in London.
