Fancy a day out in Dublin with the Girls? Or a mooch around Town, just you & Mum? Book a table at Morelands Grill. Delicious Crevettes, a juicy steak from the Josper Grill… And our Signature G&T. Followed by a moreish Morelands Sundae? Relax and unwind at a nearby restaurant.

Let’s go shopping! Here’s our Top 5 Shopping Picks for Fashion & Lifestyle in Dublin:

Temple Bar

Shopping? In Temple Bar? Who knew… So many hidden gems in Dublin’s Cultural Quarter! Go off the beaten track & get into Urban Outfitters, Folkster & China Blue. Cow’s Lane is a Hipster haven with the brilliant Gutter Bookshop, April and the Bear & Cows Lane Designer Studio, a hub of Irish design talent. Chill out at Tamp & Stitch or Indigo & Cloth. Is it a cafe? Is it a store? Both, actually! These lifestyle shops offer fashion, coffee & slice of cool.
If Vintage is your thing, Temple Bar is your Mecca! Get your 90s on at Nine Crows & Flip, your fab frocks in Lucy’s Lounge & Eager Beaver.
Temple Bar is beautiful outside as well as inside. Check out the Temple Bar Food Market & Designer Mart every Saturday & Temple Bar Night Market every Wednesday. Watch out for quirky Pop-Up shops too! Relax at Melt Natural Healing Centre with a well-earned massage. You’re just minutes away from Morelands Grill where tasty food, a glass of wine and good times await at our nearby restaurant.

Locally sourced restaurant – the best of Irish food production

By | Food From Our Steakhouse Restaurant

At Morelands Grill we firmly believe that your food’s journey from producer to plate should be a short one. Our menus champion the best of locally sourced high-quality seasonal ingredients. We’d like to introduce you to some of the award-winning Irish food producers and suppliers that we are delighted to work with – you’ll have the pleasure of sampling their fare when you visit to dine with us.

Bretzel Bakery – the ‘real’ bread makers

Dublin’s famous Bretzel Bakery supplies us with our bread, including gluten-free options. The Bakery was founded in 1870 in Portobello, and continues to use artisan methods in the preparation of its breads, scones and pastries.

Bretzel is a member of the Real Bread Ireland group, a network of craft bakers who promote great baking and real bread. And what exactly is real bread, you ask? Well, it is bread made from flour, water and fermentation. No additives or preservatives are included. In other words, it’s the good stuff.

McLoughlins, a family tradition meets Peter Hannan for some Himalayan inspiration…

Now in its 3rd generation, McLouglins have put the relationship between farmer and customer to the forefront since 1965 and we are delighted to work with them as they source Peter Hannan’s 30-day Himalayan salt aged Irish beef. McLoughlins provide the top restaurants in the country with premium meats. It is no mean feat that they count Michelin Stars among the restaurants they supply! Customer satisfaction remains paramount to this family craft butchers and this results in excellent meats, where the taste tells its own tale!

Peter Hannan, set up his multi-award-winning company in 1991 and has won numerous awards for their system of dry-aging meat in a specially designed cold chamber. The chamber comprises of a 12ft wall of 1,000 hand–cut Himalayan rock salt bricks. The salt is known for its exceptional flavour-enhancing qualities. The dry-aging process takes place over a period of 28–45 days, which concentrates the flavour of the meat, and seals in the natural juices.
All our meat dishes are prepared on our Josper Grill – read more about the process here to whet your appetite for how we cook our premium beef dishes.

A signature ice cream for a signature dessert

Morelands Signature Sundae includes premium ice cream produced by the Taylor Family on the Glastry Farm in Co Down. They have been farming dairy cows since 1856. Their diversification into ice cream production is relatively recent, beginning in 2007, but they have already won several quality awards for it. The milk used in their ice cream comes from the Taylors’ own pedigree herd. Like the Bretzel Bakery, you won’t find any artificial additives, artificial stabilisers or artificial ingredients in the Glastry Farm range.

The ice cream we use in the Morelands Sundae is Glastry Farm’s Yellowman Honeycomb, a rich handmade ice cream, which won Double Gold in the 2012 Great Taste Awards. Yellowman Honeycomb ice-cream is also suitable for vegetarian diets.
