Gastro Pub
Located on Georges quay, a stones throw from Tara street Dart station, the Workshop, formerly known as Kennedy's is Dublin's newest, newly renovated "cosy & chic" gastropub. The lively downstairs bar is available to both drinkers and diners alike. A walk up our staircase leads to our intimate Peppercorn Room overlooking the Liffey river, where reservations are welcome and recommended.

The food was very good and wholesome. The staff were very friendly and we got a lovely table with plenty of space by a big window. The decor is very cool. We will definitely be going back.

The pub is great for drinks, nice atmosphere. Service a bit slow. Food is not amazing, just ok, at least the burger we had. It was a bit burnt. Maybe the rest of the menu is nicer.

Had a lovely evening at the workshop , food was great and a really nice atmosphere there in great surroundings. I had the kennedys burger which was delicious and perfectly cooked as was the steak , chicken wings too were very tasty.
Waitress was very attentive and helpful but not pushy.
Really nice atmosphere there too, just very relaxed and the decor and exposed brick work has a sort of New York loft feel about it.
Location very handy too , right in city centre. I’ll certainly be back for more!

Buyer beware! We booked a table here for our last night in Dublin because we wanted a nicer meal away from a noisy pub. When we arrived, our “reservation” was downstairs in the pub, and the menu was basic pub food. An hour after we ordered, we asked where our food was and learned that they had booked a private group in the upstairs restaurant and the kitchen was swamped. 20 minutes later, we spoke to the manager and he admitted our food order hadn’t been started yet. They treated us like we were being unreasonable. We left hungry.

I have eaten here a few times, usually at lunchtime. It's really convenient for me for the train. The presentation Of The food is really lovely with some unique choices such as tasty beetroot and goats cheese wrap. Service is fast and unobtrusive yet helpful. I have no complaints and will keep coming. Good value lunch.
