Where to take your dog in Dublin

With layers of history and heritage weaved around a rich tapestry of pubs, Dublin is a capital worth exploring. What it lacks in size it more than makes up for in spirit and you’ll find yourself besotted with Irish charm in no time. With dog-friendly farmer’s markets, pubs, cafes, restaurants and outdoor spaces, you’re bound to find plenty to do with your dog in Dublin. Dublin’s coastal rail system, The DART, also allows dogs on board, meaning you can explore even further! 

The Fumbally

Located in the heart of Temple Bar, The Fumbally is a dog-owners paradise. This community cafe has a funky vibe, quirky artwork and serves up local coffee and healthy, hearty food. Dogs are welcome to join you inside but must be on a lead and well behaved. Water bowls are provided.

Killiney Hill

This off-leash area is a great place to walk your dog. It sits to the south of the city and its hilly trails offer extensive views over Dublin or across the sea. There’s a playground there if you’ve got kids with you as well as public toilet facilities. If you find yourself feeling a little peckish, the Tower Hill Tearooms is dog-friendly and will provide water for them too.
