Wine Bar

ELY is a multi-award-winning, buzzy wine bar with great food, craft beer and classic cocktails.

Opened in 1999 Ely has been recognised as Ireland’s leading wine bar from the start, continuously awarded best wine bar with Wine Spectator recognising it for Best of Award of Excellence in 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 saying "This restaurant is honored by Wine Spectator for having one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world.” And The Sunday Business Post awarding it Best Wine Bar in Ireland 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018 saying "Ely is the class-leading, category-defining exemplar. A superb food offering to match every wine on the extensive and adventurous wine list..."
Not content with sourcing some of the world’s best wines Ely also takes food provenance and seasonality very seriously, sourcing their grass-fed organic beef and pork from their own family farm in the Burren along the Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland’s west coast.

    Drinks (wine and cocktails) were fine, however the food was overpriced and there weren't any vegetarian options for a main. The ambiance is really good, however I found the dining area too smelly. The service was okay, but they weren't helpful in recommending dishes nor fulfilling small requests (e.g. one slice of bread for my stew) unless they are on the menu...

    The menu was a bit limited and many of the main/entrees were for two such as a lamb neck and beef dish. The catch of the day was a salt cod not sure that item should be a catch of the day. The appetizers were wonderful and restaurant is lovely inside.

    Myself and my husband enjoyed an anniversary dinner in Ely on Good Friday. It was outstanding. Our waiter I think Nevin was efficient knowledgeable and very polite and friendly. We shared the beef carpaccio and then the steak of the day to share. It was cooked perfectly and the sides of cabbage and polenta fries were delicious. Our waiter recommended a beautiful bottle of French red wine. The toilets were spotless and it wasn’t too busy at our 5 o’clock booking. We will definitely be back.

    ELY Wine Bar – Dublin 2Responded on April 20, 2022

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. It was a pleasure to be involved in celebrating such a special occasion for you both. Nevin does an incredible job and I will be sure to pass your kind words over to him. We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your pairing of food and wine. The prime cut and a nice red will always marry well. We work hard to ensure cleanliness is a priority in all areas of the Restaurant. We are pleased to hear it met your standards. See you again soon, David

    Atmosphere and wine amazing here. Food is mostly excellent. Little disappointed with a starter but everything else was delicious. Staff were all very friendly, efficient. They appear to do just do one sitting a night so no being rushed off the table, which was probably my favourite thing about the whole evening.

    We really enjoyed our dinner but we were challenged by the time limit that we were given - we were seated and 30 mins later we were asked for our food order - with our main cores eaten we were offered dessert and told at the same time 10 mins to vacate our table . In fairness we expressed our concern and we reached a compromise on the matter thanks to our server .

    Dear CiaranO, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Delighted you had a pleasant experience overall, but we are disappointed to hear you felt rushed. This shouldn't have happened at all, considering we usually allocate plenty of time to turn tables around. Nevertheless, we're glad the server was able to address the issue on spot, and be assured this will be flagged to management internally. Thank you for your support, and hope to welcome you back soon.
