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!

I often check out reviews of restaurants on Tripadvisor and it's always surprised me that not more people take the time to review Kennedy's - considering how busy and popular it always seems to be. I visited Kennedy's often when I lived in Dublin and the place is a real diamond in the rough. The food is great quality, freshly... More

The Bistro was really nice. Really thought the mushrooms and breads were lovely. We had the Hake for dinner and it was really nice. The crumble was delicious. The service was great.
