Nicely laid out restaurant although they could do with a heavy curtain on the door as everytime it opened we were freezing. The menu has good selections on it but it is on the expensive side. On top of that you have to pay for...More

This was such a great find! We went to Kilmainham Gaol for the morning and then stopped off here for some lunch. I’m coeliac and the whole menu could be adapted to my needs. All the staff were very clued up on gluten free requirements...More

Lunch was served really quickly and was really tasty. Nothing complex but simple done well and with time in our lunch hour to spare!

I would highly recommend this wee beauty of a place. Everything is 5 star..from the decor, to the wait staff to the food and wine and ambiance. Our party of 4 loved it and we will most definitely return. The ravioli starter was just divine!

Description
Union8 is a new contemporary neighbourhood Eatery situated in the heart of the vibrant residential, cultural & business district of Dublin 8. Close to Kilmainham Gaol, IMMA, St. James's Hospital and Hilton Hotel Kilmainham. The name reflects our goal - to become the hub and focal point of our community & for those from further afield! We also chose it because of our location (union of roads) and our belief as to what a truly local restaurant should be (union of people). We are interested in achieving prominence based on consistency & quality rather than publicity. The seasonal dishes are modern & well-balanced, with just a few ingredients. The wine list is adventurous and keenly priced, and the service is professional while appearing casual and friendly. All of which can be enjoyed in a stylish contemporary space. We are open 7 days every week. Our food offering encompasses the entire day and evening. From morning coffee, daily lunch / food menu to casual eatery by night. Not to mention Sunday brunch! - served from 10.30am to 3.30pm. -SELECTION OF WINES, BEERS & SPIRITS NOW AVAILABLE-
