In Dublin, any sun often comes with a downpour of rain, or a gale of wind, which threatens to ruin your lovely brunch on the terrace. However, there are plenty of places in Dublin to enjoy your beer in peace, with heaters to keep you toasty and either parasols or covered areas to stop you from getting wet. Here are our absolute favourite places to stay dry and warm in the city.
📍55, 4 Percy Pl, Ballsbridge, D04 V9T3
If you want stunning views then head to Angelina’s, situated right by the canal. It’s the perfect place to enjoy some delicious food and cocktails under the generous heat of many overhead heaters.
2. Lemon and Duke
📍Royal Hibernian Way, 1 Duke Ln Upper, D02 YK71
Lemon and Duke serve delicious food, from chicken wings to fish and chips and you can enjoy on their lovely heated terrace. Plus, if you’re a fan of cocktails then you need to visit because the bar staff are super friendly and mix the most delicious drinks.
📍22 Baggot Street Upper, D04 W5R2
Vietnamese food is one of life’s great joys and at Saba you can indulge in something delicious in a covered, heated terrace. The flavours are as bold as the mural on the wall and they also serve super-tasty Thai food!
📍4 Lower Kilmacud Rd, Stillorgan, A94 PX85
Riba’s terrace is so warm that you could sit here even in the winter (as many people did last year), and the food is to die for. Pair outdoor heaters with lobster pasta and I’m there!
📍 4 16 16 S Great George’s St, Dublin 2
Fancy some tasty Mexican food on a completely covered, heated terrace? Head to 777! You might want to book in advance because this place is really popular and usually full on a weekend.
📍119 Church Street Upper, Inns Quay, D07 E128
There’s nothing better than enjoying pizza and cocktails with friends, and at Bonobo you can do just that whilst staying warm thanks to the terrace heaters. Another great thing about this place is that they also serve vegan pizzas with tasty vegan cheese.
📍562 South Circular Road, Rialto, D08 CX33
Daphne’s is another great spot at which to grab some pizza on the terrace and they also serve a delicious brunch for those days when you need to recuperate from the night before. Heaters and parasols keep you warm, dry and protect you from sunburn on those rare warm days.
📍17 Baggot Street Upper, Ballsbridge, D04 V4P5
There are plenty of heaters on the terrace at Bobby’s to keep you nice and toasty whilst you enjoy one of their delicious cocktails. Plus, you can indulge in a bottomless brunch if you so wish, and let’s face it, nobody’s going to pass on that.

Lucky’s is the place to go for proper no-fuss pub vibes. Here you can enjoy delicious pizza and a heated terrace alongside super friendly staff and clientele. Plus, there’s pizza jazz every weekend, featuring some really talented artists.
10. Suesey Street
📍26 Fitzwilliam Pl, D02 T292
The roaring fire and lovely soft throws in Suesey Street’s terrace make it super-comfy and the food is out of this world. It’s a pretty fancy place and it definitely isn’t cheap but here you’ll find the creme de la creme of terraces.
