Idlewild re-opens with a new Tapas Menu

August 2020
More Details

Our very friendly neighbourhood bar on Fade Street, Idlewild, has re-opened with a new tapas menu to accommodate the current COVID regulations.

Idlewild is an iconic bar on Dublin’s Fade Street, the heart of social Dublin. Quirky design meets great brews…but until recently it been more idle-for-a-while than Idlewild. But life has returned to Fade Street (we just need to get it pedestrianised) and Idlewild is back open from 5pm every evening and all day Saturday & Sunday.

Under the current COVID regulations there is a minimum requirement for pubs and bars that everyone eats a substantial meal costing no less than €9. To accommodate this we have a short tapas menu available.

5 star ratingToo much options!! The food in the market bar is so well described you just want it all!
Which is what happened for me, however I gave it a hell of a go and only left a few calamari and 3 prawns, so I think I did very well!
I got the patatas bravas, nachos, calamari and gambas.

It was all so tasty and cant wait to go back to try more things off the menu!


Very impressed. It was really good prepared for covid: there were face masks available, hand sanitizer in each corner, single use menus, cutlery sealed in individual bags and even a paper cover for the glasses! We felt really safe having our meal. Food is very nice and portions are big for a tapas bar. Atmosphere is lovely. We definitely recommend it and we'll come back for sure
