The African community in Ireland is growing bigger every year. Being away from a culture an individual grew up in can sometimes be difficult. For Africans moving to Ireland, there is always that urge to eat cuisines they are more familiar with. Many people do not know that Dublin alone has over 20 African restaurants. West African restaurants might make up more than half of all African restaurants in Dublin but there are many other restaurants that serve North, South, and East African dishes.
If you are a new student in Ireland, chances are you’ve been told about the Intercontinental food court. The restaurant is located on Parnell Street, which is just a walking distance from O’Connell Street. This restaurant serves West African food; jollof rice, efo, draw soup, and more.
Location: 130, Parnell Street, Dublin
Anu’s Kitchen sits in the heart of Tallaght. The restaurant is large enough that it doubles as an event center but don’t let that dissuade you from going in. There dishes are an amazing Afro-Caribbean experience and Anu’s Kitchen probably has the largest menu of all African restaurants in Dublin.
