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 thought the food was really good and very well presented, but the portion size of the main meat was too small in my opinion, I had the venison

Excellent service. Fab food presented tastefully. Good background music. We arrived early and finished our meal as the restaurant became busier. Worth a visit!

remember the building from the eighties as Jack Carville's off licence I was blown away by the high level of service from entry to exit, food was sublime ambiance was just knockout as the old building sucked you in between the mortar and the bricks of a time long past , good luck to all at Dlahunt.

warmest regards

My wife is gluten free. She ordered the beef and when it arrived there were a number of items missing. The reason given was that they contained gluten. She would not have ordered it if she had been told in advance. Also the beef was inedible. No acknowledgement from the staff of the problem when told.

Overall a very enjoyable dining experience however it was let down by non attentive / non personable service. Could have been that it’s silly season (Christmas) but still, with quite an expensive set menu service should have been better.

We loved the service and the surrounds and while the food was good, it didn't blow us away. Each dish had great elements but each had issues - over seasoning, low temps, needless ingredients

The service was excellent and the food was very good, but limited in choice. We were very happy to have the discreet dining area at the back of a the restaurant. Overall a very good experience.

Food was beautiful and service was very nice. Atmosphere was great. Service was quite rushed, putting down our next course as they were taking our plates from last but that’s to be expected at this time of year so didn’t mind. Was pleasantly surprised when the bill came. Overall extremely happy.

Love this restaurant. By its design you cant get smothered by very large groups which is nice. Food choice particularly at Christmas time is really good. Presentation is always top with lovely staff to help you enjoy your evening. A good wine list without being too long and confusing. Always a great buzz here. I particularly like the high top table/bar for two or four. Go try it yourself. You wont regret it.

Recommended by a Friend from Dublin for our reunion dinner. The food was artistry on the plate and a joy to the palate. Fresh local ingredients, surprising flavour combinations, terrific ambience, and service with a smile. All in all terrific choice for our reunion dinner and will come again!

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.
