Another jewel of the Emerald Isle. Food was a delicious. Well presented and beautifully prepared. Excellent service. Our visit started with a warm welcome from Olwyn and ended with our friend Eamonn O'Brien picking up the tab! What a perfect evening indeed :) Next time we visit Dublin we'll return to the lovely local gem for sure. It's a little... More

6th time to eat here and never reviewed it before but after 6 times without a fault I think I should and every time has been 5star plus , the food really is exceptional, the staff and especially Noel (manager) could not be more helpful. I promise if you eat here once you will definitely return

I made a midweek reservation in Dobbins hoping for a quite night out with the missus.. We were greeted by a hostess who was anything but charming, I mean she looked us up and down when we mentioned we had a deal voucher. It began.... She walked us to the back of what was an empty restaurant and tried to... More

We went to the dobbins last Sunday for my husband's bday lunch and it was a great experience. €26 for a set menu including a dessert is a very good deal especially that the food was amazing there. There was nothing we wouldn't like there, the food was lovely served and perfectly cooked. Service is great too. I would definitely... More

Dobbins is listed on TripAdvisor as a wine bar but this little gem is so much more. My family brought me there for a surprise birthday dinner and it was a real treat. The staff are friendly and attentive but the real star is the food! Beautifully presented and delicious. The Castletownbere crab starter is to die for and all... More

I dined here recently with a group following a graduation ceremony in Dublin. The food was beautifully presented and was delicious. Gary, the chef really makes you feel as if each dish has been specifically prepared with you in mind. The menu is very varied with a broad range of options including an early bird option. I think what draws... More
