The Washerwoman, located on Glasnevin Hill (called locally Washerwoman's Hill due to the local story of washerwomen out on the hill with their mangles washing clothes in the Tolka river!)has been a well-loved and treasured restaurant in the area for years now, and is housed in a charming stone cottage which dates in part from 1700.
The menu, befitting of a neighbourhood restaurant, is ideal for a special occasion (think Cote De Boeuf, poached trout, mullet or lamb round)OR a casual dining experience. with healthy and accessible foods for kids , a host of diner classics for teens and big kids(!), and a great weekend brunch offering.

    Given the locale and the fact that we hope to welcome families, there are exciting, healthy and accessible foods for kids, a host of diner classics, and a particularly extensive steak selection. We are working with some of our favourite craft butchers to create our own aging room and source some amazing salt-aged meats.

    Overpriced food. Cold and soggy not crispy chips. Cafe de Paris sauce was over powering with fishy flavour. Treacle bread so hard you would break your teeth on. Very disappointing meal. We ate here a number of years ago and Cote de boeuf was 56 euro now 81 and really not great. We asked medium well and it came out rare to medium. Will not be back.

    The staff are great. The food was not. The chips were not good at all and felt re cooked. Not restaurant standard which is dissapointing as we are locals and want a better restaurant here. We won't go again, having been there on and off for nearly 10 years.
