Very nice dining room. Had lunch I thought the menu was a short of options. Service very good. Chicken burger was satisfactory my partner enjoyed the lamb shank. Not sure if it was value for money. I will go again and give it another go.

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-
