Dublin Square Irish Pub was the first on my list of pubs around San Diego to visit. Dublin Square is located in the middle of Gaslamp district just a few blocks away from the convention center train stop. So you could potentially could avoid $30 parking and just pay $2.50 to take the train and try some Irish Pub eating. I ended up ordering their fish and chips and I loved them. They were breaded with a panko crust and paired with thick french fries. The fish was very fresh, I think some of the freshest I’ve had in fish and chips for years. I sat by the window and was able to people-watch while I dined during a very beautiful day in San Diego. I ended the meal with their flourless chocolate torte with fresh berries and raspberry sauce. Everything was very good and I wouldn’t mind going back to have the same thing again, although I’d really like to try some of their soups as they sounded very original.
Date destination? Yes, you could have a date here. It’s mostly a casual atmosphere so I think jeans would be fine. It’s in the middle of Gaslamp district so that’s perfect for walking around and sightseeing before and after dinner. You can also stop by the Seaport Village for a walk along the water and perusing the shops downtown.
