I was brought here for breakfast, which was a trek from where we left. I was starving so I was annoying my date every time I pointed out a suitable breakfast place but she insisted on dragging me to Dillingers. I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Good job I was accidentally bearded and smelly so I blended in... More

Not being familiar with the layout of Dillingers, we were surprised to be given a table at the counter which is very cramped. Our server told us this should have been pointed out to us when we made our booking and did apologise. The food was fine but portions are probably too big (I don't often say this) and the... More

Went here for brunch to catch up with a friend we hadn't seen in months. Food was nice, we were waiting quite a while for coffee but didn't pay much attention, however after we paid our bills we were finishing coffee & chatting when we were asked how long more were we planning on staying because they had people waiting...

This is a local haunt for my husband and I. In Ranelagh village, south of city center, Dillingers describes itself as an American-style bar. I think any place that serves Chicken and Waffles (and ATL fave) for brunch must qualify. Dillingers is great for every night of the week, offering promotions including Margarita Monday's and Nacho Tuesday's, just to name... More

We've been to Dublin twice, but we've been to Dillinger's 3 times. That should say something. This time we went for brunch, and we were again very happy. Great atmosphere, great food (HUGE portions, too), and friendly service. We'll be back again next time we visit Dublin.

We had brunch here on Saturday after a late night attending a wedding the night before. I loved the decor and the atmosphere - very laid back and a great buzz. We could only get seats at the bar but it was fun watching the staff. The menu had lots of really tasty options. I went for the pancakes with... More

Had dinner here recently. I found the seating very cramped at the 2 seater tables. We had the popcorn chicken and cod starters which we found to be a bit basic for the price. The mains were alot better, tasty and good size portions. The staff are friendly and service was good. The cocktails were a bit disappointing given the... More

Service was very good but food and cockails lacked taste. Did not justify the price tag. Atmosphere and the property itself are really nice. But compared with say 777 this place has a lot to improve on. I live in Ranelagh and won't be rushing back anytime soon. Disappointing.

My friend brought me to Dillingers for brunch and I ordered the smoked salmon and hash browns. It was a great mix of flavours from the salmon to the hash browns to the rocket arugula and guacamole. The portions were really huge, but you just can't stop eating!
