I was surprised how busy this place was... Tight narrow wobbly tables and over priced dishes... I've enjoyed soup & ciabatta along with tea (Herbal) or coffee (cappuccino etc.) for €10... Recently... Great value, however Kennedys reckon for a poorly presented ciabatta at 5c less than €7 and a herbal tea at €3... I think someone is seeing the Celtic... More

All feedback is welcome and we have always taken some learning from critical feedback. In this case, however, the review - which criticises the service, the furniture, the pricing and our produce - is so imbalanced as to make it difficult to take anything from it. More importantly, there are a number of inaccuracies in the review that need to... More

I visited Kennedy's in Fairview when in Dublin last year visiting friends nearby. There was a fantastic selection of fresh salads and desserts. Everything looked delicious. I had hummus, salads, olives etc and it came with their own brown bread which was lovely. I bought some to take home as well as some pasta and olive oil. They have a... More

Great food and coffee and food products and an excellent amenity in Fairview, however service is lacking slightly. The wait stuff don't seem to have any urgency about them, and the odd time when I pop in late they're only delighted to tell me I can't order anything. I really feel it's not living up to it's potential and could... More

Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback. Glad to hear you enjoyed the coffee and food although disappointed to hear that you found the service to be slightly lacking. Service is something that we work very hard at, and I feel we do generally deliver very good service, but we have fallen short on this occasion and your comments... More

Great food and wonderful service! Its obvious that thought and effort is poured into every meal, even if it's a sandwich made from the smiling girl at the deli. The perfect place to stop in for lunch, or for an early evening hot supper. The coffee - drink all the oh so delicious coffee! I can't get enough of it!... More

We had heard about Kennedy's before we arrived in Ireland (full disclosure, from a relative of the owner, whom I have never met) and went out of our way (slightly) to Fairview in Northern Dublin to taste for ourselves. We took a cab from Sweney's Pharmacy because it was Bloomsday and I wanted to buy lemon soap, but I checked... More

Friday night in St Patrick's weekend and no reservation... Nicely advised to wait for 15 minutes with a bottle of wine. Great atmosphere, excellent service and, most importantly, fantastic food. Very reasonably priced too for Dublin!! Absolutely in love with the place. We shall come back! Thank you!
