Italian food is always a crowd-pleaser, so whether you're treating someone on a first date or celebrating an anniversary, Pacino's is a superb spot for Valentine's Day in Ireland. Tuck into freshly-cooked pasta, decadent seafood and proper pizzas and sultry sips.

This swanky speakeasy is keeping with the prohibition theme by dishing out delish meals. Enjoy a three-course meal for €50 or for €85, pair each dish with a curated cocktail, making for one of the best Valentine's Day specials in Dublin. We highly recommend the king prawn linguine.
