Dublin is Grand is all about the double meaning of “grand,” the way that Irish people use it to mean “fine and acceptable,” and the more universal definition of something large and majestic. We really wanted to soak in the dichotomy of using a word that could refer to something awe-inspiring to instead describe something thoroughly average. It’s almost like how Americans (myself included) use the word “awesome.”

Our mission is to steer clear of the type of hyperbolising that so often eclipses any real meaning in restaurant reviews these days and just tell it like it is.
