Everyone knows Fitzwilliam Square, that mysterious gated (and unfortunately locked) park between Lower Pembroke St and Upper Fitzwilliam St on the south side of Dublin City. Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve always been curious about what the park looked like inside! So, now is my chance as every Friday, Fitzwilliam Square will host a new lunchtime market that is open to all! Here at Mylunch, we love learning about new and interesting ways to enjoy lunch and as the square is only around the corner from us we were delighted to hear about it! Now all we need is good weather and it’s happy days!

The Market is open from 11:30am to 2:30pm, every Friday. There will be over twenty pop up style gourmet restaurants offering a wide selection of healthy and delicious lunchtime treats! A perfect option for lunch in Dublin 2! This is a great alternative to the oul ham and cheese sambo at your desk we think! Sure, the health benefits are enormous too: it will provide you with your daily dose of Vitamin D and that bit of fresh air to blow the cobwebs away and leave you wide awake and full of energy for the weekend ahead!

One of the big bonuses of the market is that they provide you with the picnic blankets to chill out and enjoy your lunch on (and to keep your clothes sparkling clean for your return to the office). These guys really have thought of everything. There will also be a live jazz performance to help you unwind! A little bit of entertainment as you munch your lunch, if you don’t mind!

The market is organised by Irish Village Markets, who also organise similar lunchtime, farmer and food markets at the Grand Canal, Spencer dock, Sandyford and many more locations all over Dublin. Click here for a full list of their markets.

If you know of anywhere interesting for lunch, please get in touch and let us know! If they sign up to the site you could win a free lunch there. What have you got to lose?
