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.

    Horrible waitress was very rude, the group didn’t think the tip was deserved so we asked for it to be removed as she was short and abrupt with us the whole experience so when we asked just to take it off she stormed off and didn’t say anything to us and just shoved the card machine in our face to pay when she came back I even did give a tip myself but I didn’t get a thanks. I’ve worked in many restaurants myself and I understand it can be stressful however I would never act like that towards customers like she did.

    STAY AWAY IF YOU SUFFER FROM ALLERGIES Came here with my girlfriend who suffers from a dairy allergy. She ordered the vegan Mac n Cheese. When it came over I double checked with the waiter that this was definitely dairy free. We were told yes so she ate it. After eating half of her meal she then felt ill. We left and then had to use her epipen as she was having a severe allergic reaction. I contacted the owner who told me she had done a full investigation into what could have happened and said that there was no dairy in it and no chance of cross contamination. For her to have such a severe reaction there had to be actual dairy in a vegan dish. This meal almost cost her her life. Not worth it.

    Our waitress was very sweet but she forgot to bring our drinks( we never got them!)The food we ordered had no flavor(fish and chips, nachos, chicken ceasar salad). Overall disappointed given the high ratings this restaurant receives. Pretty much the worst tasting food we had in Dublin

    Great staff and service, food was great too. I was hoping to get a seat for my visiting friend with a view, but upstairs wasn't open and there was construction work outside so the outside view wasn't that great. It's not the restaurant's fault, the view will be great again once the outside work is completed. Overall a great dining experience.

    Brought my teenage daughter and her best friend here for dinner, great service, staff were very friendly and attentive given it was a busy Saturday night. Great overall atmosphere, great location and very clean. Menu is a tiny bit limited but has a little something for everyone I think. Great recommendations for drinks to pair with dinner/dessert. Food was lovely and great value for the location. Dessert was fabulous we had the brownie and cheesecake, both were gorgeous. Really enjoyed our evening here, would recommend if you want a nice atmosphere, meal and friendly staff but don’t want to completely break the bank!
