Head to Moloughney's for a quality full Irish breakfast and freshly squeezed orange juice before grabbing a coffee to go and strolling along the seafront. Moloughney's also caters to coeliacs and those with food intolerances, so there's something for everyone.

2. Bang Bang Cafe, Phibsboro, Dublin

Just a short walk from the Royal Canal, the legendary brunch burger at the Bang Bang Cafe will cure any hangover, and there are plenty of options for vegans and vegetarians too.

3. Anderson's, Griffith Avenue, Dublin


Anderson's has been a firm favourite with locals since it opened in 2003 - and for good reason. From the cosy atmosphere to the mouth-watering dishes, you'll want to stay there all day.

4. Urbanity Coffee, Smithfield, Dublin

Pop into Urbanity for a delicious cup of coffee and guilt-free acai bowl that will leave you feeling smug - and be sure to take a good Instagram too.

The interior at Angelina's is the perfect balance between cosy and luxurious and, with options ranging from sourdough toast to buttermilk pancakes, the menu doesn't disappoint.

6. Hatch and Sons, St Stephen's Green

Hatch and Sons, located by The Little Museum of Dublin, offers everything from beef and Guinness stew to salads and Waterford Blaa sandwiches. It's right beside St Stephen's Green, so you can pop in there for a post-food baby stroll.

7. Ard Bia, Spanish Arch, Galway

If you're looking for brunch with a difference, this is your spot. You can opt for your classic fry, but can also choose from Middle Eastern, New Zealand, Lebanese and Indian dishes if you fancy.

8. Kai, Sea Road, Galway

Sometimes heading back to bed after an over-indulgent brunch isn't always an option. For days like these, head to Kai for organic, fresh food from local suppliers. The rustic interior makes the experience all the more enjoyable.

10. Salt, Victoria Road, Cork

Breakfast taco or a brunch board, anyone? *drools*

11. The Buttery, Bedford Row, Limerick

When I say PANCAKE you say BUTTERMILK CHICKEN ��#pancakes #buttermilkchicken #matchmadeinheaven #ilovethebuttery

Forget normal pancakes, The Buttery offers buttermilk chicken pancakes with fresh berries on the side. Not to forget a 'clean Irish' option, if you're feeling healthy.

12. Hook and Ladder, Sarsfield St, Limerick

Hook and Ladder's menu will leave you wanting to order one of everything - and you'll still be tempted to buy a Chocapocalipse Cookie on the way out.

13. Noelle's Retro Cafe, Old Market Lane, Kerry
