We would not have seen this restaurant if they didn't have someone in the street advertising. Stairs lead up to the restaurant. Well worth the climb! Every staff person we encountered was really, really nice. It is a very casual environment. I ordered Shepherd's Pie. It was huge and I ate every bite of it. A nice memory of Ireland.... More

A traditional Irish style restaurant in the middle of Temple Bar, it serves excellent food in an intimate/ cramped atmosphere depending on your point of view. The service is good as is the food and the portions are huge. Probably cut one unless you have a large appetite. Reasonably priced and a recommendation.

We had the best potato soup and Irish soda bread at the Old Mill. Delicious fish and chips. Enjoyed it all with a couple of Bulmers Irish ciders.

I visited this restaurant with my sister and her boyfriend to have an Irish breakfast while we were on a day trip in Dublin two days ago. We thought it was very lovely especially the white pudding which I had never had before! I also thought it was different to other restaurants because there was no seating area downstairs, only...

Restaurant was empty when we arrived but the staff was super nice and food good! Location is good. If you are hanging in Temple Bar area and looking for Irish food go to the old mill!

For first night we really stumbled over this restaurant, we set out to go to another but was rather put off by the pub noise so we continued walking. We had a warm welcome upstairs in the Old mill and knew we had chosen well. Stephenie was so fun and cheerful she could have been an old friend. My hubby... More

I enjoyed the food there although the place is not as nice as other similar pubs and restaurants. Went there twice. The first I had the cottage pie with vegetables (don't take fries) and a glass of Guinness beer. I loved the roasted vegetables but the pie was not a big deal. The beer was not good, like they had...

Food decent, the lunch menu was good value as slightly cheaper than dinner menu and available till 6pm. The prawn and salmon bisque with the mussels was a little disappointing but the mussels were great. The chicken wing and chips special was well received by the children
