Legal Eagle

Archive - all the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Elaine Murphy is an anthropologist of childhood, exploring the foods and tastes that shaped us. In the dishes she offers in The Legal Eagle, Murphy digs into the discoveries of our first years, unearthing, analysing, and then creating dishes that leap with the excitement of first discoveries, first tastes. Her menus are novellas of being young, with all its foodie thrills - crisps in a bag with salty bits; your granny’s bacon and cabbage and parsley sauce; the pickled egg on the picnic; that naughty crisp sambo you and your friends made together; jelly and baked Alaska for pud. She’s the Disney princess of Irish food, granting our wishes in the handsome fairyland that is The Legal Eagle, a formerly defeated pub across from the entrance to the Law Library. And she’s also one of Ireland’s most significant restaurateurs, of course.
