The Boathouse is located in the centre of Farmleigh and overlooks a pond. They serve great coffee and cakes. If the weather is nice you can sit outside and feed the ducks. It is a lovely place to bring children.

The food here is very tasty. There is a great selection of sandwiches and wraps etc which are very tasty. It's nice to sit outside over the pond. The cakes are a bit expensive. It's a nice place to have lunch and the grounds are lovely.

The Phoenix Park is a favourite destination for Dubliners and visitors to the capital. One of the lesser known amenities in the park is The Boat House in the Farmleigh estate is a quaint, rustic coffee/lunch/afternoon break reataurant. Midweek, the restaurant was quite, relaxed and the coffee was delicious. The lunch menu offers salads, panini, baked potatoes and a very tasty Beef and Guinness pot pie. The desserts are exceptional and very tempting.
The Boat House restaurant is a good location for morning coffee, lunch or after walk in the park destination.

Before or after a walk in the grounds og Farmleigh House in the Phoenix park in Dublin you can enjoy a lovely snack or coffee in Brambles Deli in the Boathouse in Farmleigh. Well worth a visit and if you can get an outside table overlooking the water and the ducks and the fish, it's heaven. Enjoy!

After a delightful tour of the big house we adjourned here for a snack. Wonderfully placed adjacent to the lake it is a most pleasant eatery.

Even though quite crowded we were lucky to get an outside table. From the good menu we chose a tasty snack. With coffee and a cappuccino, we enjoyed the hour or so we spent here.

With friendly and helpful staff and a perfect location, we recommend it highly for a stop-off.
