Eddie Rocket's, Parnell Street
Parnell Centre, Parnell St., Dublin 1
Eddie Rocket's is one of Ireland's greatest fast food joints. Even if the size and quality of their chicken goujons has sadly decreased in recent years, you can always rely on their chocolate malt.
What has it got?
Seating: It mostly has booths but there are a number of tables with moveable chairs that are easy to use.
Doors: The doors are wide and slightly heavy but give a good push and you can make a dramatic entrance.
Ground: It's a tiled surface so is a little Slippery When Wet.
Stairs: There are two entrances (front entrance from Parnell St. and back entrance from King's Inn St.) to this Eddie's and they both have a flat entrance. In the middle, there are two or three steps that split it. At the front part is the cashier and at the back part, there is the wheelchair bathroom.
Bathrooms: There is one wheelchair bathroom here. It's best to reverse into it as it is a little bit tight.
Spaciousness: If you sit at the back of this Eddie's, you will have more room. However, the pay desk is at the front so you're on your Tobler, you'll need to ask for help.
Helpfulness of Staff: They're very helpful here. Just ask for a hand if you need it and they will deliver.
Parking: There's is a wheelchair parking spot on King's Inn St., as well as plenty of street parking. There is also a car park, accessible by a lift, on Jervis Lane with a number of wheelchair spots. (Map here)
Why did it lose points? The bathroom is tight and even though they have all their facilities in check, the split level is a nuisance but at least the staff will help you out.
