  1. Great idea! Hope you get through them all and tell us the best! You should try the falafel at the Dublin Flea Market, which takes place on the last Sunday of each month in new market square – next one is this Sunday (25th August)!

  2. Great idea. I have falafel wherever I can get it. There is a guy at the Stillorgan market on Wednesdays and another guy does the Stillorgan Luas Stop on a Tuesday and Sandyford market on a Friday. My fav is the Stillorgan Luas and Sandyford market guy. Does a mean veg mix plate!

  3. Great idea!
    Listons Food Store on Camden Street offers Falafel Wraps several days a week. Had it the other day and really liked it! Different from any other falafel Ive had before though…it was green inside instead of the usual brownish. But tasted really nice (even though Im a very picky eater and left out most of the fillings). 🙂

  4. And I thought Dublin was lacking in falafel joints – was I wrong! Thanks for posting a useful list and map plus simple but honest reviews. There is a Lebanese falafel stand at the Irish Village Markets (lunchtime outdoor) in Ballsbridge as well:
    As someone who likes a bit of spiciness, my recommendation for the places you list is to leave out a few bottles of hot sauce so we can kick it up a notch!
