Delahunt is a contemporary Irish restaurant and bar situated in a restored historic Victorian building on Dublin’s Camden Street.

Our aim is to provide the best seasonal, local produce in a relaxed and welcoming setting. Our menus are influenced by traditional and often overlooked cookery techniques, in keeping with the buildings Victorian origins. Home curing, slow cooked braises, pickles, preserves, traditional desserts and bread-making are some of our specialities. Championing small local producers is an essential part of our ethos

To add to Delahunt’s history we have built a cocktail bar on our first floor. The focal point is a striking bay window overlooking Camden Street, accompanied by vaulted ceilings, retro furniture and custom wooden paneling, original fireplaces, and a wide range of spirits and craft cocktails. The bar is walk in only.

I love this place.....always great service, great fun and great food! Recently brought a group of girls for my birthday and they are all converted to Delahunt!
On the last occasion which was lunch my only concern is that is was a little cold.....however I was seated beside the radiator so warmed up quickly!
I'll be back for a drink and a cheese board at the counter over Christmas!
Love Delahunt!

Waited 35 minutes to be offered wine or food menu despite requesting.
Ordered 2 sticky toffee pudding deserts,waited 40 minutes,asked three Times in between when it was coming.Mentioned it to the waitress when paying the bill(we never received the two deserts) and she literally ignored my comment.
TOTALLY RUINED THE BUSINESS DINNER.

I thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance of Delahunt, there was a lovely vibe there and the staff were lovely and the service was good, the food was tasty but not the best restaurant I have ever eaten at and I didn't think it was great value, but overall it was a nice dining experience.

We had a fabulous meal after a day out in Dublin. Gorgeous snug table in the front. Food was delicious, beautifully served. Service was attentive, professional but relaxed and easy at same time. Loved the ambiance and interior. Will most definitely be back again.

Thought it was very expensive and food portions very small. I did not realise it would be a Xmas menu when I booked. All wine was very expensive too

Easily the best meal I ate in 2019, and there were some strong contenders. Anyone who can make you close your eyes and cry a little over carrot soup is winning in my book. As good as the soup was it didn’t quite meet the nirvana of the sticky toffee pudding which was quite simply divine. Add to this a stonking main, beautiful decor and some quite beautiful wait staff and you’ve got yourself the perfect lunch or dinner. I haven’t mentioned the wine list which was beautifully structured making it easy to pick something based on your taste preferences - even for someone who hasn’t yet figured out why they like some wines and hate others. And the cocktail...yummy. It was a three digit 4-course lunch. But it was totally worth it.

Great dinner - limited menu but food very well presented and tasty. Salmon starter small but lovely. Duck main was a bit tough (more red than pink) but accompaniments were delicious. Friends artichoke risotto was adored by the two who ate it. Also the cheese & fig starter and ham hock both great. Chocolate ganache shared by three of us & very rich.
Service very good - accommodated a later time (of about 20 mins) as one person delayed.
Have eaten here before & will be back!

Delahunt is 1 of my favourite restaurants in Dublin but my friends and I found the set menu very limiting and the food was just not up to the usual exceptional standard, it was very disappointing.

Yes would recommend delahunt but portions were way too small! We had main and dessert and were still hungry when we left. Also a disgusting smell came from behind the bar right beside where we were sitting so we felt we had to leave straight after dinner. Food was delicious all the same and staff were lovely 😊

Love the vibe it blends traditional and modern really well.
3 courses for €45 on a Saturday night at 8pm is great value and the food was a different spin on what you know.
The team at Delahunt also were just the right amount of attentive.

On a dreary wet Saturday evening Delahunts was the perfect place to step in out of the rain. Friendly efficient service meant we had plenty of time to savor our delicious meal and linger over our wine before heading to the National Concert Hall.

A happening place. Many out of towners mixing with the Dublin crew in a cosy room. I remember this as a liquor store and love the original features.
The menu has a small number of choices but each is perfectly cooked and presented. I really enjoyed the skate wing.
A special shout out to the floor staff who were friendly and professional

I'd heard a lot about Delahunt but was underwhelmed by the food. It was good, there was nothing wrong with it but it was just OK, didn't match what I'd heard about it or the price we paid.

The biggest trouble is that the menu is SO appealing, it’s nigh impossible to choose what you want. But you can rest assured you’ll enjoy whatever you decide! The stand out for me was a Jerusalem artichoke and blue cheese salad : well proportioned and absolutely gorgeous. Staff were very pleasant and I could hear kind advice and recommendations given to would-be-diners that couldn’t be fitted in between bookings. Would recommend.
