“A small teashop with a good menu.”

This is lovely little teashop located in the grounds of Farmleigh House, next to the lake. They have a small lunch menu with a good variety of snacks, sandwiches and soups. The food was very good quality and makes for reasonably priced lunch. You can sit outside on the sheltered veranda and watch the ducks and birds on the lake, just lovely.

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.
