Thanks to all at The Woolenmills. We had a lovely lunch. We felt safe and relaxed because you adhered to guidance. Thank you for showing up for work in difficult times so that we could experience normal again.

I received something that I didn't order, the waiter wasn't helpful and he seemed angry at my friend and I (for a mistake that we didn't make). The music was way too loud and I didn't feel comfortable.

Booked the woollen mills for a family lunch after reading some reviews. We were not disappointed. While a little pricey, the food was exceptional and the portions were a decent size. Our 2 year old daughter’s fish and chips was actual smoked haddock and hand cut chips, She absolutely loved it and left nothing on her plate. Our mains were top class. Excellent coffee also. The staff were attentive if a little forgetful. Lovely location and the place itself was spotless. Will definitely be back.

I've eaten here for breakfast a few times in the past and have found it a nice restaurant with decent food. On my most recent trip my partner and I were very disappointed with the food. A generous portion of chicken wings to start, which tasted fine. The beetroot, fennel and apple burger was extremely dry and overcooked as was the beef burger. The menu had what appeared to be nice options, ambience was good, wine was tasty, presentation of food was well done. Some of the waiting staff seemed hurried and under pressure. Maybe we visited on an "off night". I know all the new rules and regulations are taking their toll on everyone and perhaps the restaurant is still finding its way within this(social distancing and hand sanitising stations etc were all excellent)

We went for dinner during covid measures. Inventive menu for starters and mains. Good seafood choices. Limited desserts. Tasty cocktails. Seemed expensive for what it was.

We wanted a good brunch to set us up for a full & energetic day in Dublin. Our research led us to The Woollen Mills, based on location & previous reviews, & we weren't disappointed. I had the Ha’penny Fry & my wife had Poached eggs with fried bacon, tomato and sourdough toast. Both were excellent & we would highly recommend to anyone seeking similar

Really well spaced out and food was delicious and not overly expensive considering the quality and portion sizes. Lovely cocktails and atmosphere with great music choices. Would recommend especially in COVID times as felt very safe and distant from other diners.
