Description: he Harbourmaster is located in the heart of Dublin’s ever growing and bustling business district, the IFSC. Our fabulous former Dock Office / Harbourmaster house was first built in the 1830’s and later transformed into a pub and restaurant in the 2000’s. Both the bar and restaurant have undergone cutting edge design transformations in the last year and we continue with exciting developments, all to be revealed throughout 2018!! The Harbourmaster is renowned for it's delicious, great quality and reasonably priced food, which can be enjoyed in the stylish restaurant and newly renovated cocktail bar or in the Old-Style Main Bar which still retains its dock house character. With our classic function rooms, nooks and crannies, the Harbourmaster is the perfect setting for any occasion however large or small! No matter what your need, our friendly team of professionals are at your service!

Have been to this restaurant quite a number of times and always had a good experience...except this time. And so reluctantly,I feel compelled to give a bad review.. We booked a table in the restaurant for 10 people (on my recommendation), back in October, for Saturday 1st December. (in plenty of time). The booking was gladly accepted. However the organiser received contact from the venue a couple of days before the booking, saying they had received a large booking for that night (1st.) and we would have to be accommodated in the bar instead. They also gave us just that day to accept the change or cancel. This caused huge inconvenience for us as some were travelling from the country, and also people were in work and could not be contacted very quickly. It was reluctantly agreed to go ahead with the revised booking. We were squeezed into the bar area for the night. It must be said, the food here is very good quality and the service efficient and polite. On the night also, the toilets at one end of the venue were out of order and also, when coffees were ordered after the dinner, the machine was not working, ruling them out.. (also, by the way, bringing a teapot without a lid could be actually nearly dangerous in my opinion). Overall it would seem the lure of a large booking overcame the sense of customer service on the night I'm afraid, and the complimentary wine extracted didn't compensate.

Whilst visiting the Dock area chanced upon this place. It was very popular at lunchtime when we arrived. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. We both settled for a fish and chips meal. The order was taken, and arrived, in good time. One of the fish was a little overdone but the other was perfect. Some of the interior appeared a bit basic and some paintwork/woodwork was in need of a touch up. However, a nice atmosphere within, and a beautiful open fire near our table. Worth the visit

Visited here for a nice lunch before myself and my uncle went our separate ways and headed home after pre Christmas catch up.

In the main it was excellent in terms of food and service with only one let down food wise which was a shame

Let’s start with service this was excellent firstly they took us without a reservation which was great given weather outside and the staff were friendly, and efficient which given how busy they were it was great.

Now on to the food this as I said previously in the main was excellent and good value my uncle had soup and sandwich which was great and very filling going by his feedback after. Me on the other hand was semi happy the steak on hot stone was excellent and really good value considering you got an 8oz sirloin, chips and sauces which for €16 was excellent. The let down was the chowder this was because firstly it was Prepared and arrived to soon after order had been placed, secondly and much worse was the fact that the chowder as it’s main ingredient consisted of those artificial luminous pink crab/fish sticks which was all sorts of wrong in terms of taste and texture

In the main I recommend it to eat
