This Spring sees the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) host a number of great shows including new paintings by Hungarian artist, Zsolt Basti and a selection of large abstract paintings, displayed alongside ceramic sculptures in an exhibition of new works by Tinka Bechert. There’s also a ground-breaking inaugural exhibition by the CA Collective, a collective of artists living with intellectual disabilities, who showcase their work there for the first time.

The gallery’s stylish environs are also home to Margadh, a bright, inviting space that caters mainly for tables of two or four, with one large table available for parties of six to eight people. The ‘café by day, wine bar by night’, is currently offering a special Tasting menu inspired by the Black Sea, drawing on Turkish and Georgian influences.

Created by Mert Ozel, a senior chef at Margadh’s sister restaurant, Mamó in Howth, the multi-course menu costs €49 and is available Wednesday to Saturday evenings from 5pm, and at lunchtime on Saturdays.

Margadh is launching a new café lunch menu this week, which will be available between Tuesday to Friday, and also on Sunday.  Watch out too for the addition of a small range of ‘To Go’ options on weekdays.

Lunch and light bites are available at the café between 11.45am and 3pm from Monday to Friday, while the wine bar is open from 5pm Wed – Sat.

Margadh, 15 Ely Place, Dublin 2.
