With the excitement of Christmas behind us, the January blues are worse than ever. We all need something to look forward to and what could be better than an international day celebrating all things love!
Whether we are locked down or not, you can still enjoy a cook-at-home meal from some of the best restaurants in Dublin and make what you can of 14th February, especially when you’re planning a visit to PREMIER SUITES Dublin Leeson Street. Here are some of our favourite Dublin restaurants and things to do in the city this Valentine’s Day.
Dine and unwind in romantic Dublin restaurants
We don’t know what restrictions will look like for Valentines Day this year so we’re preparing ourselves for all eventualities. Luckily, some of our favourite Dublin Restaurants are providing their very best meals and produce, semi-prepared, perfect to finish at home or in your suite. If restrictions allow, try to book a table in:

apartments has a fully equipped kitchen so you can dine when it suits you, impressing your otherhalf with your culinary skills and staying safe in the comfort of your city centre suite. You could also order a fully prepared and ready to eat take away from some of the many cafes, fast food outlets and restaurants in Dublin and enjoy it in the comfort of your personal living/dining space.
Have a classic date in the park
Dates in Dublin have been severely restricted since 2020. For now, we can’t head to a pub, enjoy live music or go to the cinema. This year, we have to be more creative when trying to impress that special someone. Parks and public gardens are still open and free to be explored by all.
Stephens Green Park
Enjoy the serenity and beauty of Stephens Green Park, a stone’s throw from Leeson Street. This historical park has everything you need for a romantic stroll, including beautiful waterways, flowering formal gardens, and plenty of green space. Enjoy a lunch Al Fresco (just watch out for the greedy seagulls!).
The park itself hosts a large number of important sculptures and monuments and a visit is a great opportunity to educate yourself on Irish history. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon, lockdown or not.
Other parks and attractions to enjoy
You can also enjoy the nearby Iveagh Gardens, a National Historic Park and one of the finest, but lesser-known parts of Dublin. Complete with fountains, woodlands, a hedge maze, beautiful sunken gardens, a rosarium and a waterfall the park is a beautiful example of Victorian design. Surrounded
by cafes offering a delicious takeaway lunch (check out Emer’s Kitchen), it’s an ideal spot for a midafternoon wander.
