Delahunt is a contemporary Irish restaurant and bar situated in a restored historic Victorian building on Dublin’s Camden Street.

Our aim is to provide the best seasonal, local produce in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Our menus are influenced by traditional and often overlooked cookery techniques, in keeping with the buildings Victorian origins. Home curing, slow cooked braises, pickles, preserves, traditional desserts and bread-making are some of our specialities. Championing small local producers is an essential part of our ethos

To add to Delahunt’s history we have built a cocktail bar on our first floor. The focal point is a striking bay window overlooking Camden Street, accompanied by vaulted ceilings, retro furniture and custom wooden paneling, original fireplaces, and a wide range of spirits and craft cocktails. The bar is walk in only.

Food here is excellent and the service equally so. The menu has a choice between just 4 dishes. I had plenty of things I like to choose from, but on another occasion, I might have found that limiting. Portions are a little on the small side

Yes I would recommend for the food and ambience, amazing.
I was for 7pm on opentable; at no point was I told we would have to vacate our table at 9pm, but we were presented the bill before we asked for it; and reminded more than once in that ‘there was a group waiting for the table so they really had to ask us to leave’.
This more or less ruined the evening for me; take our money and get out, was basically the attitude.
So although I would recommend the food, I would suggest you clarify how long you can sit and enjoy your drinks for after you eat.

The food was very plain, had to ask for extra jus, salt & pepper. Was sat close to the door with friends, otherwise a pretty sweet spot.

Very restrictive group menu once you’re 8 or more. We had a family birthday and only had a choice of three starters (cured duck, pea & ham soup, tomatoes & ricotta) & three mains (hake, pork chop or mushrooms).

For some reason it’s €5 extra per head when you’re 8 or more - normally €45 for 3 courses, but jumps to €50 when you’re a group 🤷‍♂️ So essentially less choice, more expensive.

Wines were exceptional, sides to share also exceptional (Aubergine & goats cheese, fried polenta 👌)

Service was fine, not the friendliest bunch and unaccommodating when I asked if I could order a main from the regular menu. Simply declined - just “sorry, chef says no”

Although none of us were that impressed by the pork chop, the Hake & Mushroom main were incredible, as was the pea & ham soup.

Beautiful restaurant with a short perfectly executed menu. There was a special main course which was delicious. This is a great restaurant if you’re not in a rush.
We were lucky that our table didn’t have to be vacated after 2 hours. We also enjoyed a number of seasonal cocktails which were amazing. The staff are fantastic here!

This experience certainly can be equated with the emperors new clothes story. People are raving about Delahunt. I hsve no doubt this place wzs great when it first opened and when it was first recommended to me. Perhaps I should have tried it then .They seem to be confidently resting on their laurels that their booming business will continue. I believe they are ripping people off with tiny portions and over priced wine. If they want to stay in the market they will have to do alot better thsn this. I for one will not be returning

We had a lovely evening with good food friendly service and great ambiance. The portion sizes were very small and despite having side dishes we were still a little hungry after our 3 course meal. A side of potatoes would have been lovely for hungry diners. Overall a most enjoyable evening.

Great food and a great ambience, eating at the high top counter is a good option for a couple eating out, it didn't feel like you were in the way or crushed in which can sometimes be the case.

Dinner for our last night of vacation and Delahunt did not disappoint. We did the 3 course option. The appetisers were amazing perfectly cooked octopus. Main dish I had the market fish, again perfectly cooked with great sauce and sides. My so. Had the beef, slightly undercooked for his taste but it had great flavour. Wine suggestion was spot on and the deserts topped off a fabulous meal.

We ate here following a recommendation from an Irish friend and were not disappointed. The ambience was good, the place was buzzing! The little cocktail bar upstairs for a pre meal drink was really different too. The food was excellent quality and served quickly but without rushing us to eat. Restaurant staff were efficient with a sense of humour. All in all it was a lovely place to eat and spend an evening.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming. The menu is very limited but the food was excellent. There were four in our group, and all were impressed with their choices. After our meal, we were lucky to take a table upstairs in the sitting room, which was really relaxing. Toilet facilities were clean, but the arrangement was not good though.

My favourite restaurant in Dublin!
Great food, great staff and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The seasonal menu means you are always in for a treat. The restaurant is perfectly complimented by the magnificent Living Room cocktail upstairs - run by Martin, one of the best in the business - and perfect for a digestif!
