We were passing through monkstown and we discovered this hidden gem. very friendly service. Food is top class. couldn't fault it. Desserts and drinks were brilliant. Was a little pricey but you pay for what you get. Will definitely return.

It's a pleasant place to relax,have a drink with friends,even have a nice dinner.I had pork belly with some pumpkin wedges on Halloween evening ,very tasty. Also they have a back terrace covered and heated. The staff is friendly,but the thing which l didn't like is that they're not cleaning the tables outside,very sticky... I would definitely comeback.

This beautiful pub has great food and good service. The menu is small but the quality is very good. Reasonably priced and within walking distance from Dun Loughaire station.

Visited the Purty last week after an absence of a couple of years and boys there's a change. The menu is similar, good pub food with a good selection of fish. Highs would certainly be the decor and location but it stopped there for us this time. We shared a tasteless salt and pepper calamari starter with a freezing nondescript... More

We visited the Purty Kitchen to watch the fabulous Hazel O Connor and had a great evening. The venue was perfect and the food and atmosphere amazing. A huge shout out to Ashley who couldn't have been more helpful and was so lovely. Really hope we can visit again if we can escape London soon.

WINNER OF DUBLIN'S BEST GASTRO PUB 2013 - IRISH RESTAURANT AWARDSThe Purty Kitchen re-opened it's doors under new ownership in October of 2012. The Purty Kitchen is south Dublin’s newest gastropub serving a wide variety of fresh fish and pub classics with flair. Every dish has been created to show off seasonal food at it’s best and we have used Irish produce wherever possible.We have tried to put a signature twist on all of our food. Take our burger for example. They are made in house with dry aged Irish beef from Kettyle meats. The cheese comes from 5 mile town creamery and then it’s all served on a Waterford blaa with a basket of skin-on rooster chips. Most of what we serve in the Purty Kitchen is made in the Purty Kitchen. Where there are exceptions to that, we have sourced things from other great Irish food producers like Boulaban Farm in Tipperary for our salted caramel ice cream, or Arbutus Bakery in Cork for delicious sourdough rye bread.
