Dublin's original steakhouse with the experience and knowledge of over 25 years of serving the perfect steak. We change our menus each season to reflect the best that Irish produce has to offer and to ensure the highest quality of local fresh seafood. We offer an informed wine list to meet all budgets and an extensive selection of cocktails and spirits. We are also open for weekday for lunch serving health and tasty dishes at very reasonable prices. The way in which we guarantee the highest quality in beef in both texture and flavour is by choosing Irish beef and the highest grade of traditional breeds of cattle. At F.X.BUCKLEY our prime cuts are hung on the bone at 4°C and at 80% humidity for a minimum of 28 days. Storing meat for several weeks where it can loose up to 16% of it's weight involves considerable expertise so all F.X.BUCKLEY butchers are specifically trained for the process. The benefit for our patrons is to experience the concentration and saturation of natural meat flavours and superior tenderness. Hence why you will hear experts use terms such as "buttery and rich", and "earthy and nutty" to describe our dry-aged beef.

FX Buckley specializes in steaks dry-aged for a minimum of 28 days. Our party ordered rib-eyes and fillet. If you like your steak medium rare, you might chance a tough cut of meat. But all was made well when the most tender fillet was brought in it's place. Bottom line, this place prides themselves in getting it right. From selecting... More

Booked this renowned steak restaurant after a friends recommendation and tripadvisor rating. The restaurant which was busy but not full had a warm buzz fitting of a restaurant of its rating. We opted for the early bird menu which whilst a modest supplement was payable for a ribeye steak, was outstanding value for money. Both starters, smoked salmon and devilled... More

I had the black pudding starter and it was really very good. I am a big fan of puddings and this was one of the better ones that I have... More

Staying with my family for a few nights in Ashbourne, my fiancée and two children (12, 3). Googled somewhere for an evening meal. Found this steakhouse. Was able to book online for two adults and two kids so expected the place to be child friendly however we found out when we arrived that there is no children's menu and ours... More
