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.

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.

Not as good as my previous times there...
Menu not as nice, great main course but starter a bit bland and only one type of cheese as cheese plate. We were asked to vacate table when we were already getting coats on. Lots of empty tables at that time and no one waiting. Have always loved Delahunt but maybe rugby night etc was not the night to be there.

Nice buzz. lovely selection of wine. It was great to try a chenin blanc from the Loire Valley and a red Beaujolais by the glass. The dish were well presented and very tasty. I would happily come back to taste the spring menu.

Good !but not amazing, food was good but lacked that little finesse that makes a meal really good, bistro feel nice but very noisey very hard to hear, prices imply it's a little better than it is ! Would be good for larger groups or parties.

Really liked this restaurant, old authentic pub/restaurant atmosphere, booked high table, but ended up with Window seat for 2, which made it even more special, great people watching on Camden st.
