Spent the evening here. Lovely atmosphere and food with even better service. Food was also great. Maia was our waitress and was bubbly and chatty, checking if we needed anything etc. during the evening. Will be back again!

Refused entry by blonde man at the door because he said we were to drunk although we hadn’t even had a drink. Would stay well clear from that K*#b head and the restaurant

The Squash & Goat Cheese Salad was smothered in dressing. The squash was mushy. I don’t recommend. The food. The location is nice.

Visited with friends last Friday night and had a wonderful time. The food was gorgeous and the atmosphere was great. The staff are the nicest I have ever come across … kept coming back to check if we needed anything (but not annoyingly so) and...we’re so friendly and helpful. Very quick service and no time waiting for drinks. I will be making this my regular hang out. Well done everyone.More

This is such a prominent place in Dublin we decided we needed to visit. We were shown to a table out in the covered garden area and it was lovely. The waitress was also very friendly and welcoming. We just had burgers but they were...lovely and delicious. A very popular place for shoppers, tourists and locals alike. The cocktails did also look very good. The toilets were amazing and the church itself very well converted. It would make a great lively nighttime destination when restrictions have eased further I'm sure.More

Breakfast was delicious and service friendly and efficient.James ,the concierge was very helpful and personable. The Conrad is in a fantastic location and allows easy access to restaurants,shopping and attractions while allowing a peaceful stay with Iveagh gardens and St Stephens green so close by.More

Great food and service but as a non drinker did not expect to pay the same price for some juice as cocktails containing alcohol. pricey night for the non drinker
