Needless to say we had another great meal in The Woollen Mills.
Great service & very tasty food with a wide variety to choose from
Very happy to see all the extra measures they have gone to to ensure their customers safety and the safety of their staff.
Will definitely be back & I highly recommend it for lunch outside in the city centre.

I ordered a spinach, beetroot and goat cheese salad.
Basically I got 5 spinach leaves, and really small cheese in a plate full of beetroot.

From begining to end we enjoyed our experience at The Woollen Mills.
It is very clear that they have put a massive effort into the care and protection of their customers and staff.
The food was superb.
The atmosphere was positive and the staff were helpful with menu recommendations & polite.
Would definitely recommend, we will be back.

It was great, just be aware when booking that the website shows pics of a balcony overlooking the liffey as being the outdoor seating - this is now the pizza restaurant The Yarn..if you want to sit outdoors (which many do right now) and have Woollen Mills food, you'll be sitting on the pavement outside. I wanted the balcony, so had pizza instead. The staff were lovely about me changing my mind. The website probably needs updating as it's a little misleading now.

A huge disappointment I’m afraid to say, we both ordered sandwiches, both arrived burnt, one was replaced as requested but for €8.95 some added coleslaw on salad might have been nice. The restaurant was cold and didn’t feel that clean. I’d never go back

La comida buena pero el servicio lamentable. Reserve en terraza y me dieron en interior. Hasta ahí tampoco era un gran problema. La mesa cojeaba muchísimo y la solución fue ponerme un corcho debajo de la mesa hasta que pregunte por el manager. Me reubicaron finalmente donde había reservado.
El precio no es barato así que esperaba un trato acorde con el precio.

The place is one of my fav restaurants in town, the food is fantastic and the staff just amazing people. Also, I like the coziness of the open areas during night. Although, I’d suggest to book in advance and ask for the menu at the weekend as it varies from time to time.
Besides that, totally recommended!

Fantastic Irish food at a great price. Really good wine list and even through I was ordering by the glass they offered me a taste of each red so that I could choose my favourite. They also offer wine by the carafe which was great as we were drinking red and white!
Definitely going back and will bring my Vegetarian dad as they had a great veggie menu.

We went there on valentines day, so a lot of people had ordered tables. We had a reservation for 9.00 p.m but did not get our table before 30 minutes later, and ended up bring done eating when the restaurant closed. So we could not stay after eating and chatting. It felt like we were being “kicked out” because they closed, so we had to hurry.

There were many things not acceptable with this meal for the price. For starters, we were not provided adequate steak knives meant for cutting, we were served wines in carafes when a bottle was ordered, the service staff disappeared at the end of the meal, and they seemed to segregate people by demographic. Next time, we will go to a higher rated resto for the same price.

Added a 12.5% service charge to the bill when there was only two of us. We paid 135€ for two courses and no alcohol. Vegetarian option was literally a head of cauliflower. (Which I could buy in the shop for a euro) Food was nice but very expensive and definitely not worth it. Would not recommend.
