In Dublin (DUB) Airport

Restaurants – Airside Terminal 1 (BA, CityJet, Ryanair + Short haul)

Butlers Chocolate Cafe does a mean coffee and muffins. Kill two birds with one stone and get your other half a chocolate gift whilst sipping your mocha.

If you’re after something more substantial the options are mediocre. Flaming Stone and The Garden Terrace Restaurant can’t compete with Burger King… which says it all really.
