7 Places to Eat in Dublin that Offer a Student Discount

When lectures are over and your brain has taken in all the information it can for one day, there is no better way to relax than going out for a meal with friends. Just because you are a student, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a nice meal out every now and again.  

With the high cost of living in Ireland’s capital, most food places understand the need for discounted rates. Many cafes and restaurants close to colleges will generally offer a student ‘meal deal’, but in recent years this has expanded across Dublin.
