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.

    The food was just ok. Looking at menu on line seemed fab but no so good when actually there. We had nachos to start. Disappointing. We had sweet potato fries with our meal and they came out burnt. The staff were really nice and were attentive though. So kinda made up for it. We we charged a service charge of €12 for two people which we thought was out of order so we didn’t leave a tip.

    Disappointing - I booked before our stay in Dublin as the photos on the website looked amazing but we were seated right at the back in a dingy corner with a door that kept thudding next to us and no atmosphere at all - felt a bit grubby really. The service was fine and quick but not at all the smart place we had been led to expect so we didn't stay for pudding. Wouldn't come again or recommend it.

    Restaurant très joli, personnel adorable. Les plats à la carte ne sont pas par milliers, ce qui prouve la fraîcheur des produits. Et cela se vérifie effectivement dans l'assiette ! Plat généreux et gourmand qui tiennent au corps. On sent que c'est cuisiné avec amour comme à la maison :)

    The Woollen Mills is always 10/10 for me since I first went there many years ago. Staff are friendly, there is a great energy in there between staff members and customers and of course, the food is phenomenal. I'd marry the Turkey Sandwich if it that was legal and not totally insane.

    The service and waiting staff were exceptionally good. Best service we have received at a restaurant since Covid ended. Friendly helpful enthusiastic- can not fault them at all. I would come back for the service alone. Food was okay - some of the dishes were cold unfortunately. Ambience was brilliant and the staff could not have been more accommodating for us. Will definitely be back!
