Nice spot to meet some out-of-town friends!
Some friends were visiting from abroad and we met them here. They had their 4-month old with them, and were made to feel very welcome. He slept most of the way through dinner and when he woke up, he had an army of admiring fans from all sides! The waitress was friendly and attentive. Service was a little slow for the drinks, which arrived just as we were about to enquire about them. We went for a mix of plates from the early bird menu. The poached egg and bhaji combination was delicous, but came on a bed of dry, plain spinach and was topped with a fairly large amount of natural yoghurt that seemed odd, and I didn't feel quite worked - I think if the spinach was dressed with something fruity, and the yoghurt served as a dip on the side it would be much better.
My friends had the oysters which were very good apparently, and the scotch egg with asparagus also got the thumbs up. The boxty, as others have said here, was a little small for a main, and expensvie at 20 euros but as part of the early bird worked out as 23 for two courses which was much more reasonable. I had the hummus and flatbread, (It is meant as a starter but I had it as a main), which again at 11 euros was a little on the steep side for a starter in a very causual diing spot, and was literally a pot of hummus and 4 pieces of flatbread. The chips with garlic aioli were divine, and good value at 4 euro.
Overall decent food, and relatively good value as we went for the early bird, but would I think it does fall on the expensive side if going for the a la carte. Location-wise it is right in the city centre and just across from Temple bar, so bearing that in mind its good value for the area.
We would definitely return as a causal dining spot with friends - top tip - try to make the early bird, and ask for the yoghurt on the side if going for the bhajji!
Very nice place in the city center (in front of Ha Penny bridge) where we ate a very good cooked black angus steak.
We reserved the table from Italy without any problem. It was alteady available at our arrival.
Great atmosphere. Great outdoor dining area overlooking Ha'penny Bridge. Great staff. Great food.
After reading all of the reviews I had high hopes for this place. I was completely disappointed. Too many issues to list, but here are a few: Service was slow and the staff largely ignored us. They also didn’t know what was in the dishes. The oyster appetizer we wanted was unavailable. Half of the mussels in both of our portions were dead (unopened) and therefore inedible. The hake dish was so bony that it was also nearly impossible to eat. I would never go back.
Fabulous staff, very friendly. Tough decisions choosing our meal as we wanted everything on the menu. Early bird very good value. Went back for lunch the very next day and have recommended it to everyone I've seen since then!
Food was lovely. Good location absolutely recommended 👌
Had a great dinner here while visiting Dublin. Our party had the ribs and burger which were excellent, and a pork chop, this was a little dry and the least impressive of the mains. Atmosphere was good, as was service. I would recommend to anyone in Dublin.
Found our meal very mediocre. Ordered the mussels and chips with a bisque. The bisque was very thin and watery and the chips were so big they were not cooked through properly. Will not be returning.
This was our first time and it surpassed expectations! We can’t wait to go back! We had the wild garlic hummus (with radish + flat bread), the vegetarian burger and the monkfish pasta. I tried the two sodas- blackberry+sage and strawberry +basil. He had the nettle gin 👌. If I had to find any fault it was that the burger was slightly difficult to eat because of the size. The service was great and we highly recommend this place!
Excellent Irish produce on the menu, great cooking from a quirky menu and really good service,
Food was lovely and service was great, but I found the portions very small.
Great table, fantastic service, staff were super friendly and chilled out. Food was delicious and very reasonable!
Would definitely recommend and will absolutely be back!
Very enjoyable evening in The Woollen Mills; great food and excellent service. Would recommend to groups; we were a table of 6 upstairs in the covered terrace which was perfect. We all loved it and great value too.
Came here with my mother who is very fussy !!! Service was excellent, patience even better and the standard of food was amazing.. Great ambience !
Will definitely be back
It was the worst place i've been to in a long time. The fishplate was awful, salty and smoked different pieces. The angus beef was so tough that we had to send it back, the hamburger was dry and so was the homemade potatos. The ribs were to sweet and dry as well. Do not go there!
This is a very happening popular destination right by the Ha'penny Bridge on the Liffey in Dublin.
Packed in seating, great food and very good service really make this place feel like an experience.
Meals are big - we split ours and that was not problem.
Great Vibe - a fun date night.
Myself and my fiance came for our anniversary and and everything was splendid !! Our waitress was so friendly with alot of knowledge of food and wine. The ambience of this place was amazing too, great music !! We will definitely be back to try more dishes, everything sounds and looks delicious.
I had a great experience at the Woollen Mills . I was with two 5 yr olds and I was dreading it. The staff were excellent. They brought coloring items for the kids and magazines for me. Service was prompt and friendly. My butternut squash bhaji was delicious as a starter. My main of mussels was generous and I couldn’t finish them. I enjoyed a picpoul white too.
Lovely food ,good friendly service.It was my first visit & looking forward to a return visit.
3rd time I visited the restaurant. Foos is good, service is fine. Only the mucic was way to loud. It was nearly imposible to have a conversation.
Very nice place, wonderfull location, great dishes and a very professional waiters.
We booked this restaurant for a family meal on Sunday evening . The 'early bird' menu is reasonable value with a reasonably large choice from the main menu. Service was a little 'brusque' at first but overall was acceptable but never quite reached a 'good' standard. The food quality was good and we all enjoyed our meals.
Very enjoyable good food
And superb value
Really enjoyed the Ribs
We had a nice meal on Saturday night,the food was tasty the service was good staff friendly,it was very busy, felt a little bit cramped maybe a few more veggie options would be nice but all in all we enjoyed our time there and would return.
The food is always excellent, the service could be a little better. We were waiting for our drinks and had to ask for salt more than once.
Went to the Woollen Mills for dinner with the two first time Dublin visitors. I wanted to show them something Irish but with a twist - the restaurant did not disappoint - food was delicious! We sat upstairs with a lovely look of the river. Will come back!
Everything was ok and fine. The main course was very big and I had to leave a lot of food. Something was missing, but it was a nice place. I just can't explain what wasn't good enough...
Really cool place, great location overlooking the Ha’Penny Bridge. It was manic for brunch at 11am, therefore service was patchy. Had waffles, spinach, eggs, really disappointing, no taste/flavour, which was surprising, I expected the food to be amazing. There were five in our group and everyone was disappointed.
Lovely spot great food and lovely staff.
Great restaurant great value and lovely ambiance. Highly recommend
I cannot speak highly enough of the lovely meal we had. It was my graduation and we were treated to champaign by such friendly staff. The food was delicious, my sister loved the vegan burger. The wine was delicious. But mostly the staff were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this lovely spot for any occasion.
What a wonderful meal! Beautiful location, delightful ambiance, fantastic food. Great service as well. We particularly enjoyed the pork ribs, which had a great contrast with the sharp colcannon side. The mussels were deliciously well. A great meal all around.
Nice lunch had by myself and my husband today. It was our anniversary and we got a lovely table in the corner, we only had time to meet for a quick bite on our lunch break but the staff made us feel well looked after. Food was very quick and the quality was 10/10. Thank you The Woolen Mills we'll be back again.
Went here on a busy St Patrick's day for early dinner, service was quick efficient and friendly! Had the butternut squash baji (amazing and very large!), two lovely cocktails and the beef cheek and shin burger (succulent and served with the tastiest hand cut chips!) Very pleasant dining experience even if slightly costly!
Had a great dinner with gal friends here before a night on the town. We ordered a very nice sized glass of Cava and enjoyed smaller dishes off of their appetizer section of the menu. The portions were still good sized even for being on the starter menu, which was a plus! I loved the creative combinations of flavors in each dish and would have loved to branch out and try more.... next time!!
Lovely quiet table looking over the Liffey & Ha'Penny Bridge. Quick, pleasant service. Will return for the Monkfish & one of those lovely cakes :-)
Had a lovely lunch here today, Soups & sandwich lunch offer was on point as the portion size was filling but not to stuffing! I had the chicken sandwich with mushroom soup my friend had a salad plate. Staff were very friendly. Will return. :-)
The food was wonderful. I had the tomato soup and chicken sandwich and everything was delicious.
We chose The Woollen Mills to have Mother's Day lunch in and we are very happy that we did. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waiter was able to tell us exactly everything that was in the dishes we chose and he was also able to make recommendations, as well as being able to tell us where their delicious tea was sourced! I would highly recommend The Woollen Mills to anyone.
We had in mindto eat in de downstairs restaurant. We were placed on the deck what was not reAlly cosy. We came from Holland with this tip. The waiter was great!
Wonderful comfortable place with great food , helpful staff and relaxing atmosphere
