A No-Nonsense Irish Breakfast at The Hairy Lemon

Updated: 31 March 2017
The Hairy Lemon in Dublin is reputedly named after a local dog catcher whose lemon-shaped head was as hairy as a gooseberry.

The pub’s interior is just as unusual as its namesake, with memorabilia from all over the world adorning the walls. The pub has also featured in movies, with scenes from The Commitments (1991) filmed in its snug bar.

If you’ve enjoyed a little too much of their Guinness the night before, set things right with a full Irish breakfast. On the plate you’ll find egg, bacon, award-winning sausages, mushrooms, toast, beans, black pudding, tomato and fries. Everything is cooked to order, so if you want your bacon extra crispy, just ask.
