A Matchmaker’s Guide to Perfect Dates in Dublin


Matchmaking in Ireland’s capital is made a lot easier with so many great places for the perfect date

Dating your perfect partner is the best part of signing up to a matchmaking service, and Dublin is one of the best places to do it. The city has so much to offer that it’s hard to know where to start, so here’s our guide.

Matchmaking is a Walk in the Park

Phoenix Park is a chance to get back to nature. A great place for a picnic with your date, this park is home to some of Dublin’s best greenery. The Emerald Isle is famous for its lush grass, and even in the nation’s busy capital this is still true.

Fancy a tipple?

Dublin is home to the two of the world’s most famous drinks: Jameson and Guinness. Both breweries offer critically acclaimed tours and - of course - a free taster as part of the experience. You and your date will have plenty to talk about as you get a taste of some great alcohol, as well as a taste of your date’s personality.

Be the Kings and Queens of Dublin

Take a trip back in time with a date in the heart of historic Dublin. Dublin Castle boasts a range of architecture and great opportunities for photos. After soaking up hundreds of years of Irish history, relax with nice a cup of tea in the Dubh Linn Tea Rooms upstairs.

Go to Jail!

“Take your date to a prison” may seem like strange dating advice, but Kilmainham Gaol is one of Dublin’s most famous attractions. It’s a cheap and easily accessible place to visit and, more than that, it’s an interesting alternative to the standard rom com at the cinema date. A date like this is a chance to go beyond small talk and have a conversation about something a bit different.

The Food of Love

Dublin is bursting with great places to eat. You can try traditional Irish food in places like Chapter One or The Winding Stair. Or you can savour Ireland’s diversity with a date at Sabor Brazil or Veda. For the adventurous, Dublin also has a great range of succulent street food with places like Neon. Matchmaking has never been so tasty!

“As you know, I had been very reluctant to get back out into the dating world following the break-up of my marriage. But I can honestly say that you made it exciting and really very enjoyable. I couldn’t wait to meet the people you thought I might like (and you were always right) and I began to look forward to the adventure and the romance (which didn’t always happen but I had fun). Now I have found Mary and I’m very grateful to you for that.”
