With a believable claim to be the oldest seafood restaurant in Dublin, the Lord Edward has been a city staple since 1890. The rather unreconstructed menu contains a huge range of seafood such as sole, prawns, scallops, lobster, and various other fruits of the sea, all served every traditional way you can think of and a few you probably can’t. The dining room is avowedly old fashioned. This is certainly not the place to come if you’re seeking out what’s new and what’s hot in the Irish culinary scene. But fans of the Lord Edward (and there are plenty of them) adore coming here for the sense of continuity and old-school charm.
