Irish
The Woollen Mills has been one of the most iconic buildings and businesses in Dublin for over one hundred years, and to have taken over this site is a serious privilege. Much like our award-winning sister restaurant next door, The Winding Stair, we feel like we are custodians of something very special... a piece of history (James Joyce worked here, how unbelievable is that?!) and we must do it proud! Spanning over four floors and with a glorious roof terrace overlooking the River Liffey. The Woollen Mills is quintessentially Irish, local and of its locale. We want it to be an 'Eating House', a house of food, a place to grab a coffee and bun, a plate of Irish fish and chips, a place to score a casual bite befre the nearby theatres and cinemas or sit with seven courses of Irish antipasti, burrata, crab, lamb or cauliflower steak, overlooking the Ha'penny Bridge with a fine bottle of red or a craft beer. We hope we do it well.

    Great central location. Staff were so friendly and helpful, in particular Chris who sorted out a birthday dessert for my son who was 12 which he loved. Really interesting menu - something for everyone.

    Not the greatest vegetarian selection in terms of main courses. Food sitting on the pass for some time before waiting staff served tables. Ample staff available but not always proactive.

    This meal was seriously overpriced. €14 for hummus and flat bread that want even very tasty. The chips were inedible, cold and squishy

    I meant to get the name of the waiter who was on in the outdoor terrace on Thursday 16th June. He was brilliant and he had to work really hard as he had to wait most of the area on his own. Hats off to him, it’s a very nice place.

    Service was so quick and staff were so friendly, lovely selection of craft beers and cocktails, had the lasagne pizza it was gorgeous and chips were skin on which I love. Looking at the other food they served it all looked very tasty and big portions but not too much, will definitely be back!

    I booked the Woollen Mills for lunch with some friends I hadn't seen for AGES! We had such a great time and my friends were impressed with the range of veggie options on the menu (and the cocktails!). We will definitely be back! Helpful and friendly staff and a great atmosphere, thank you!

    Starter of nachos and salad was lovely between four people. The fish and chips for my Dad during the main course could have been a little bit more battered and crunchy, but overall was a lovely experience and great location too. Staff were attentive and prompt.

    Fab restaurant, lovely red wine served at the perfect temperature. My only fault was the noise level, very echoey. Doesn’t really suit an elderly person hard of hearing, but the staff were very accommodating and turned the music down for us. great spot would recommend.
