I had the Dockyard Breakfast and it was delicious!! Possibly the tastiest "Full Irish" breakfast around. Good quality ingredients properly cooked (sausages shallow fried rather than deep fried in batches). The DY8 Chicken Sambo is delicious too!!

The atmosphere was unique and cosy. Lovely staff and nice view. Variety of breakfast. Absolutely excellent chilli eggs and wonderful waffles (unfortunately, small portion). The place to eat extraordinary food.

Sorry. I have no allergies and never asked about gluten free food. I only hate garlic.

Tucked away in the middle of Bray Harbour, you'll have to look closely to find Dockyard No.8 but you will be more than rewarded once you do. This is a top class breakfast, brunch, lunch and bistro spot that boasts an ever changing and innovative menu. Expect things to go above and beyond the usual fare while never compromising on quality. This a quaint and intimate spot where you really feel as though you can have dialogue with the chefs and those serving you as well as take in the harbour beauty.
