Great table overlooking the park which was busy with the Sunday market. A tasty ‘something for everyone’ menu with a separate kids selection (plus crayons!). Our 3 & 6 year olds had the fish and chips (ample proportions) with both clearing their plates! Our server noticed an envelope on the table and asked “was it a special occasion” and proceeded to bring out a Knickerbocker Glory with a lit birthday candle. Great attention to detail. We will be back.

Nice meal in one of our local restaurants, nice burger and they do super salads. Can be pricey if you go off piston the wine.

The location, setting, ambiance, service and food are all very good. I do however question value. After all it is a suburban restaurant, its a lunch for two without any alcohol and €90 Euro(includes tip) is in my opinion far too expensive.

A Quiet Monday evening but very pleasant with wind and rain lashing outside. Pleasant and speedy service. A superb seafood sharing starter followed by some excellent steaks.
Glasses of house red and white wine were both very good and reasonably priced. We shared a good cheeseboard and coffees to finish.

Had a nice dinner despite the waitress mixing up my order (I got cod rather than trout, but she apologized for it so did her boss and offered to take it back). The cod was fine, but nothing special. So I am still wondering what the trout would have been like and maybe they would have got one more star. Orange and poppyseeds cake was nice, could have been just a bit moister. French Sauvignon was light and crisp as it should be. Good strong expresso to finish.

Everything was really excellent, we really enjoyed our meal, however one of the waiters, who we can only assume was a junior, was very inefficient, forgot orders, mixed up wine, spilled drinks....really not a good performance at all. We didn’t complain at the time as we didn’t want him to be embarrassed, and have to say the other staff, particularly the floor manager, were fabulous and we were treated very well. Food was beautiful and we would definitely go again.

Fallon and Byrne in the People’s Park is one of my favorite restaurants on the Southside. The views over Dun Laoghaire are stunning at any time of the day or night.
The menu is extensive and reasonably priced, I’ve never had a bad meal there! Esp love the value of the early bird!!There is plenty of space between tables too, so it has a lovely intimate feel.
Keep up the good work guys and we’ll be seeing you again soon!

Went here as a couple for lunch. Food was quite nice, bit overpriced though.
Friendly staff, comfortable seats. Overall it was just okay so I wouldn't rush back.

Gorgeous room.
Half the tables were full & it wasn't noisy like other people said. Also tables were definitely not really close together like other reviewers mentioned.
Very popular area so I'd say it gets very busy at weekends/summer.
Some people complained about children/babies - this is ridiculous, how can a restaurant (or anyone) control a crying baby?! Shouldn't even be mentioned in a review.

Went already a couple of times -
Fiod is always good and service absolutely great.
But this time there were at least 3 tebles with 12-15 people inclusing screaming children. Meaning there were only 3 or for table for 2 squeezed between this enormous noise! If this venue becomes something like that will definetely not go anymore.
