During a weekend trip to Dublin we had decided to consume only Irish food, beer and whiskey -with low expectations. The pigs ear really defenitlyb turned our view. Irish but modern in a lovely seeting and excellent service -strongly recommend?

This very small restaurant serves tops Irish food. Varied menu, excellent and patient service giving excellent advice. We were a table of 9 and each had different dishes. This place is a must if you want to eat a delicious Irish dish.

It’s best to call them or check the usual apps (open table etc.) to see if things have changed.
