A friend took me here yesterday and after reading some positive feedback, I was very excited. This cafe is very easy to miss, even my friend walked past it before she realised. The cafe itself is very quaint, mismatching chairs and a single waitress. I opted for a soup, sandwich and soft drink deal for €9.99. The soup was butternut squash and honey and was super. I had the vegetable club sandwich which was so big, I had to resort to using a knife and fork to avoid impending embarrassment. It was a lovely and filling meal, didn't have room for the salad. With my can of soft drink came a glass with a lemon slice in it which was a lovely touch. The waitress was very warm and is a lovely finishing touch to a charming little cafe. Nothing irritates me more than establishments charging through the ear for substandard food but I would gladly give this place my business and hopefully drag a few friends here someday!

Time after time I find myself going here as I find it hard to beat! Even as a struggling student a few years ago, this was my special treat( if a bit on the steep side). Now however, the prices have dropped but, wait for it.. the standards have not!! My boyfriend and I go nearly every weekend and get the veggie club sandwich with fries and a drink for €10..... between us!Now is where I add that you should see this sandwich before you call us stingy!! It's a monster of a sandwich.Also, I am not a veggie and would usually pick a non vegetarian sandwich but this is superb! The staff are always so lovely, the atmosphere is very chilled out and the food is delicious!! Would recommend this to everyone and anyone!!

Cafe Irie is a nice hole-in-the-wall in Temple Bar. They serve sandwiches, wraps, paninis and other lunchtime fare. The service is good, and the atmosphere is eclectic and quirky. The food tends to be good, although recently I had a sandwich with a less than ripe avocado. That being said, however, the portions are quite substantial. All in all, Cafe Irie is a nice option for a good lunch.

Had always loved this place because of the bohemian vibe to this cafe, but I have to say that my last visit was disappointing. I ordered a Panini with fries and the fries were almost raw. I was given a second portion but they were not much better and I didn't have the heart to complain for a second time. It's a pity that the food was disappointing because it is normally very good and the chilled out feel to the cafe is a big plus in my books!

Visited with my wife and liked the place but wouldn't say I fell in love with it. They could do with a wifi connection which would make it a lovely, quite little place to get some work done on the laptop. At the moment it is a bit too quiet and weird for me!

Visited Cafe Irie on a snowy afternoon. It was quiet, and a little chilly (but everywhere was!) but overall I absolutely love this place. It's really quirky, the food is great, portions are generous, and the surroundings are very cute. Maybe not the best place for a private chat as it can often be very quiet. Their hot chocolates and herbal teas are of a really high standard as well (not a coffee drinker so I can't comment there). Their soup and walnut bread is always highly recommended too. I love this place!

This is without doubt my favourite place to lunch in Dublin. The menu is wonderfully extensive, ranging from fry-ups to BLTs to tofu sandwiches, to wraps and paninis, to pizzas, to noodles, to bagels - and more! I've tried the breakfasts, the veggie noodles, a range of paninis and have always been beyond satisfied. This is some of the nicest food I have ever had. Prices look a bit steep but when one considers the huge portion sizes, the lovely relaxed and chilled atmosphere, the handy location and the friendly staff, it is most definitely worth it. Some great deals are on offer as well, for example: soup and a wrap or sandwich plus tea or coffee for 8.50 (or thereabouts). The only problem about Cafe Irie is that it takes ages to decide what to order because of the wonderful choice! It's always a dilemma to know exactly what to choose. A marvellous place, can't praise it enough.

I've visited Cafe Irie quite a few times and always enjoy having a browse around the fabulous shops beneath while digesting the lovely meal. While eating there last week I was struck, however, by a slight downturn in the quality of the eats. I got the excellent value lunch deal of a bagel, chips and drink for 8.95 but I suppose It was all a bit standard and the chips were a VERY greasy pre-cut affair. The salads looked awesome as ever but seen as how we hadn't plumped for the full priced stuff I guess you get what you pay for.

Love Cafe Irie. I have been going there for years and I'm never disappointed. It's a great spot for lunch with a friend or taking a breather from busy streets on a lazy day. I would recommend the veggie club sandwich or houmous salad (be warned though, it's big). Love the atmosphere and overall character of the building.

I love Cafe Irie. It is such a cozy, relaxed, little place to enjoy a long lazy lunch. They have a lot of different items on the menu. This saturday I had the creamy pesto chicken which was massive and very fresh. I had chips on the side as well, which you can add to any dish for just 1,50 extra. My friend had a peanut avocado chicken wrap, strange combination, but according to her it tasted great. Service is friendly.

This a great place for a tasty lunch. The atmosphere is relaxed, with colourful furnishings, interesting painting adorning the walls, and good backround music. The place at first glance seems a bit haphazard with all of the colours and random cushions, but it really works. It's a great place to eat; really comfortable and laid-back. The food is tasty and really good value. I had a delicious asian stir fry wrap, which was bursting with flavour. Definately one to try.

Café Irie is a great little place. From the mismatched furniture to the art adorning the walls, the leaflets all over the front desk, and the reggae on the stereo, this place has a kitsch charm that can’t be beat. A friendly atmosphere and a cosy one, Café Irie is one of Dublin’s treasures. I highly recommend their Club sandwich, toasted and on white bread. Generous and delicious fillings, it’ll fix that rumble in your stomach. The only drawback is the price. I found it a bit dear I must say, but definitely a nice treat for a lunchtime with friends, and worth a look for the furnishings alone.

I love this place for lunch, really good sambos that are massive and tasty, but this review is about their hot chocolate. I would say best hot chocolate in town. It's so creamy with loads of mini marshmallows on top and served perfectly with a small flake. I've started going here on a rainy day for my hot chocolate fix. The atmosphere is chilled out and the waitress is really lovely!

This is a little place I used to love many moons ago. I used to be a regular customer before I lived away. I was looking forward to a coffee and a quick bite to eat. I was terribly disappointed. My latte was below average and my friends soy latte was undrinkable. We ordered nachoes, which were a few dry corn chips in a bowl with a little salas dip on the side. It was expensive for what we got. We were left empty. I will not be returning : ( : (
