Barely a year old, Plat­form has al­ready won the Best Pizza in Ire­land ti­tle in this news­pa­per. Own­ers Conor and Ni­cola Dug­gan wanted to cre­ate a fam­ily-friendly pizza place, that wouldn’t scare away the cool 20some­things. The huge menu of­fers flat­breads, sal­ads, wings – and of course piz­zas, which are thin crusted and come with some in­ter­est­ing top­ping com­bos, such as their pancetta, goats cheese, maple syrup and wal­nut pizza. Ev­ery­thing on the menu is avail­able gluten-free, and the Nar­nia-in­spired bath­rooms (you reach them by walk­ing through an an­tique wardrobe) are a big hit with kids big and small.
