I've always enjoyed eating at Hemingways. The manager is charming and good fun, a wide-ranging selection of fish and seafood, and always always of the highest standard. This does come at a price but good things often do.

My father, who is from Dublin, asked me to find a good fish restaurant for our last evening in the city. I picked Hemmingways from the reviews on this site and was not disappointed. Great food and fantastic service even from giving us directions when we were lost. Very small and relaxed with a fantastic specials board. Would definitely go... More

This little restaurant was a surprise. The owner was very friendly and helpful, the product (fish and seafood) were of a superb quality and the cooks knew the job. The result: The best meal we took in Dublin. The salads were also incredible. It worth every euro we paid. Don’t miss this place.

We got a recommendation for Hemmingways and as a family we were excited to try it. From the moment we walked in the service was really friendly and welcoming. We got some top tips and recommendations from Brian and they did not disappoint. From start to finish the fish was extremely fresh, light and done to perfection. This is without... More
