One of my favourite places to eat in Dublin. Been eating here for many years, I've never been disappointed. Cod with seafood to die for. Always a warm welcome from Brian when we return. A must when.in the Clontarf area.

We dined here with friends on Saturday night. There is a great atmosphere and super attention from host Brian. The seafood was delicious and could not be fresher, being landed 8km up the road in Howth. Do yourself and your taste buds a favour and dine in Hemmingway's!

I have never had anything slightly negative to say about this restaurant. I had my son's confirmation there, I take my best of friends there, my significant other, I could even eat there alone as the owner Brian's number one priority is you. Food- excellent, Staff- excellent, Atmosphere- excellent! Seriously, go there ! But book!!!

We were here on a cool mid-week evening. Brian, the owner / maitre d' greeted us warmly and showed us to a table for two in the almost empty restaurant. He went through the menu and the blackboard specials. When I expressed a preference for one of the fish choices but cooked in the method of a different dish, there... More

All the menu items are excellent and none disappoint. Brian, the most affable owner and host, has a huge enthusiasm for pleasing his clients and is prepared to sit down, if there is room, and go over the menu items in detail. He is most enthusiastic about his fish presentations. My usual call to him is - Have you a... More

When in Dublin try some delicious seafood at Brian Creedon's Hemmingway's. I have now visited twice in the last six months and both times the food and friendship were wonderful. The house specialty is a Cod dish which I highly recommend. If you get a chance spend some time chatting it up with Brian. He is hilarious. I don't think... More

I went hear last week with 3 friends last week on a Thursday night. It was fairly quiet, but it still had a nice atmosphere. They have an early bird menu that is very good value. Hemmingways specialises in fish, but as a non-fish eater I still had plenty of choice. Food was very tasty and portions were quite big.... More
