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.

Oh wow! Perfection! From our arrival to find our table ready and the restaurant buzzing to the fabulous staff who not only knew everything about the food being served, recommended excellent wine and then gave us a potted history of the building - this was a dining out experience we would recommend to anyone! We left with full bellies and that warm feeling from a truly great night out... thank you so much and can’t wait to return!

we had a wonderfull evening at Delahunt's : very nice, cosy athmosphere, think of a traditional, brasserie-like setting with a comtemporary touch, friendly staff, excellent food and matching wines.

Our meal was great - we had fish for our main course which was delicious. Not too much so we still had room for desserts. Ambience was great. More casual dining than a formal dining experience which I prefer. I would definitely go back again!

Sehr gutes Restaurant, super Service, man hat bei dem Menü die Auswahl zwischen vier Vorspeisen, vier Hauptgänge und vier Nachttischen. Der Blutorangen Creme Brulee war fantastisch. Wir kommen wieder.

Although still very good the standard of the food wasn’t quite as good on this occasion as it previously had been. Nothing specifically wrong, just not as well executed. Hopefully this was a one off as we really like Delahunt overall.

Even if it is New Cuisine, there should be options for gluten issues, lactose, etc. There is no option of them at all.

My fourth visit to Delahunt but unfortunately my dining experience this time was below par
Our waitress was excellent but the beef main course was very disappointing

I came on my own for my last evening in Dublin and from the moment I stepped through the door I felt welcomed almost into someone’s home and the food was delicious. The restaurant itself is beautiful and they have ‘The Sitting Room’ beside to wait in if you do not have a reservation or to pass the time with its own menu and bar. Price was perfect for the quality of food served and a particular highlight was the Blood Orange Creme Brûlée.

We had a beautiful meal here with a very nice bottle of Rioja. We could only get an early booking on the Friday evening and felt a little rushed out at the very end, which spoiled it a little but apart from that everything was perfect. We had the window seat which was very private and perfect for a romantic evening. The staff were excellent, efficient & friendly and the food was divine. We will definitely return and I'm telling all my friends about it.

The restaurant was great, lots of atmosphere, good service and most importantly excellent food! We enjoyed a cocktail in the sitting room upstairs before our reservation and this was the perfect way to start the evening! Would definitely recommend a visit for a special occasion.

We had a wonderful family dinner here last week to celebrate my mom’s birthday. From the barman who carried all our aperitifs down from the lounge upstairs & next door, the staff who happily looked after a surprise flower bouquet and our very attentive waiter, (sorry I didn’t catch your name), all night, it was a great night.

The food was delicious and a candle for the birthday girl’s dessert was greatly appreciated. Blood orange creme brûlée was amazing. Only small comment was the chicken dish a wee bit cool.
Thanks to all for a great night.

Food was amazing, party ordered one of each item from the menu and no flaws with any dish. Lamb was outstanding. Service was OK, but not the best. Waitress a little brash and at one point was singing to herself when setting our table.
Dinner brilliant overall though, had drinks up stairs after and couldn’t fault this.

Yes I would recommend this restaurant - excellent service. I believe to charge for sides, accompanying the main dishes is rather mean, I often do not return to such a restaurant. It is the only flaw I have for your restaurant.

The potato soup and the blood orange creme brulee were the highlight. The lamb mains we're ok, nothing spectacular, looked pretty and was well cooked and my husband's mackerel starter and cod main we're fine as we're the chocolate tart he had. It's nice Irish food catering to the tourists and plain eaters, to be honest the flavours just don't hit the mark enough for me to bother coming back. I'd say if you aren't someone who eats out very much you'd probably love it but I think there's so many better restaurants in Dublin at the moment that are just serving way tastier food.. love the decor of the restaurant and the staff are very friendly but don't think I'd be going back unless I heard they were doing something more interesting.

I've been before and really enjoyed the food. This time, although the ambiance and service were as good as before, the food wasn't -- nothing to complain about, but just not as great as the first visit. This may have been because of the day of the week (Wednesday) or just an off night. I will give it another chance as the first visit was so good.

Returning customer and cannot recommend this fine restaurant highly enough. Super food, great service, nice wine selection. I prefer the high top seating if only 2 people. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed but book in advance.
