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, The Winding Stair, we feel like we are custodians of something very special... a piece of history (James Joyce worked here for goodness unbelievable is that?!) and we must do it proud.


That's a pretty serious task, and to have a piece of Irish (and specifically Dublin) heritage is an honour. To this end, we hope that The Woollen Mills be quintessentially Irish, local and of its locale. We want it to be an 'Eating House', a house of food, a place to grab a serious coffee and bun, a serious plate of Irish ham and chips, a place to take home a box of salads and scones, sourdough and sausage rolls, or sit with seven courses of anchovies and crab and herrings and pork and beef rib, overlooking the Ha'penny Bridge andthe River Liffey with a fine bottle of red. Or a craft beer!

You can find our breakfast, lunch, brunch & dinner menus here, including our Pre-Theatre menu ideal for Olympia patrons!


The building is over four floors and is (almost) literally on top of the bridge, with double aspect windows and a roof terrace onto the ultimate Dublin cityscape. It is truly magical and so so special. We have our own bakery and will have a large retail and take-out emphasis, so passing folk can buy our breads, pastries and cakes, as well as choose from a huge sandwich and salad selection during the day. If you sit long enough, you will see at least one person you know!
