The Woollen Mills has been one of the most iconic buildings and businesses in Dublin for over one hundred years, and to have taken over this site is a serious privilege. Much like our award-winning sister restaurant next door, The Winding Stair, we feel like we are custodians of something very special... a piece of history (James Joyce worked here, how unbelievable is that?!) and we must do it proud! Spanning over four floors and with a glorious roof terrace overlooking the River Liffey. The Woollen Mills is quintessentially Irish, local and of its locale. We want it to be an 'Eating House', a house of food, a place to grab a coffee and bun, a plate of Irish fish and chips, a place to score a casual bite befre the nearby theatres and cinemas or sit with seven courses of Irish antipasti, burrata, crab, lamb or cauliflower steak, overlooking the Ha'penny Bridge with a fine bottle of red or a craft beer. We hope we do it well.

    Left a bit underwhelmed. Ordered the breakfast parts of it great however left feeling disappointed as the bacon has seen better days as it was dry & inedible. My husband ordered the Turkish eggs, they were good however portion size was small & expensive.

    Love my visits here. This past summer I had the best beet root hummus. I was sad to see it was off menus during the winter but I had the Burrata and it was just as surprising. The chef really has a way with flavors. It’s a must hit location!

    Ate here on New Years Eve, a great spot in the city within walking distance of a music venue we were going to afterwards. There was a reduced menu for NYE which is understandable, but there was still a nice variety and the quality of the food was also still very good. The service was excellent and even as it got busier we were still looked after. The restaurant itself is lovely and even up on the roofed terrace the decor was nice and warm. No trouble at all with this reservation, even after I had to make a small adjustment the morning of. Will certainly be back for another visit!

    We were seated at the second floor, although we were not near the windows the view towards the river was very nice. The food was tasty and arrived quickly. The waiters were in a bit of a hurry to clear out our plates which was a bit strange for us.

    Definitely overpriced. Food was it nothing special, especially when compared with its price. We were given a table in the ground floor. A relatively darkish place. Nothing compared to the photos in the restaurant’s website. You can find definitely better, tastier and more value for money places in Dublin.

    The overall experience was very good. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere was lovely, and the food was nice. The starter were overpriced for what you got. They were almost the same price as a main for a much smaller portion.

    We had a team lunch here in December, for 8 people. One was a bit late so it took a while to order. Starters came fairly quickly, but there was a long gap before mains arrived. Some of the drinks orders got a bit mixed up. The menu was a bit more “snarky” than I expected - wings, nachos and such. There was a Turkey main, and Christmas pudding dessert option but not overtly Christmassy, and all a la carte- no attempt to insist on a seasonal fixed menu. Some has chicken liver pate and sole, and it was good. Chicken wings were smothered in sauce and there were no bowls for waste, or finger wipes. Service was pleasant. We were in a secluded nook away from others but even so the noise from other tables was quite loud. Overall, it was pretty good for the price, given the date.
