Last meal out... outside before lock down mark two. Really enjoyed it. Nice and Cosy with Autumn leaves swirling above our heads. Burrata wrap was delicious washed down with a yummy glass of Malbec. The Staff were lovely and so efficient, felt safe and happy.

We’ve been to the Woollen Mills many times and it never fails to please. The food was excellent and plentiful. Our young lady server was gracious, friendly and efficient. I gave a score of 4 for ambiance only because it was a cold wet night and we were, of course,outdoors.
However they had excellent shelter and heaters in place. A thoroughly good experience.
Highly recommended.

The food and the service was good but there were people doing drugs behind where we were sitting outside. I know that's not in their control but was still not a very comfortable experience.

The starters and bowl of chips were very nice but the pizza was somewhat disappointing, especially as they are only serving pizzas. They were not particularly tasty. The service was very good.

The menu was very limited (starters and pizzas) and the kitchen closed early. However the service was pleasant and the wines were satisfactory.
I would like to visit then again when the COVID 19 restrictions are finished.

I know we are in COVID times but two sandwiches for €20 was a bit steep. No teas or coffee just tap water to accompany the food. Nice but expensive.

We ordered both antipasti starters and a half bottle of malbec. Everything was so fresh, delicious and very well presented. Very good value for money too.

I received something that I didn't order, the waiter wasn't helpful and he seemed angry at my friend and I (for a mistake that we didn't make). The music was way too loud and I didn't feel comfortable.

Booked the woollen mills for a family lunch after reading some reviews. We were not disappointed. While a little pricey, the food was exceptional and the portions were a decent size. Our 2 year old daughter’s fish and chips was actual smoked haddock and hand cut chips, She absolutely loved it and left nothing on her plate. Our mains were top class. Excellent coffee also. The staff were attentive if a little forgetful. Lovely location and the place itself was spotless. Will definitely be back.

I've eaten here for breakfast a few times in the past and have found it a nice restaurant with decent food. On my most recent trip my partner and I were very disappointed with the food. A generous portion of chicken wings to start, which tasted fine. The beetroot, fennel and apple burger was extremely dry and overcooked as was the beef burger. The menu had what appeared to be nice options, ambience was good, wine was tasty, presentation of food was well done. Some of the waiting staff seemed hurried and under pressure. Maybe we visited on an "off night". I know all the new rules and regulations are taking their toll on everyone and perhaps the restaurant is still finding its way within this(social distancing and hand sanitising stations etc were all excellent)

We went for dinner during covid measures. Inventive menu for starters and mains. Good seafood choices. Limited desserts. Tasty cocktails. Seemed expensive for what it was.

We wanted a good brunch to set us up for a full & energetic day in Dublin. Our research led us to The Woollen Mills, based on location & previous reviews, & we weren't disappointed. I had the Ha’penny Fry & my wife had Poached eggs with fried bacon, tomato and sourdough toast. Both were excellent & we would highly recommend to anyone seeking similar
