I ate here on Thursday 8th with my sister on our final night in Dublin and I'm so glad we discovered this place! The food was top notch and the portion sizes were very generous. The service was professional but also genuine, attentive and very friendly. Our waiter that evening (Wayne) even gave us a cheeky cocktail on the house... More

Excellent lunch specials, Boxty specializes in great foods wrapped in potato pancakes. They offer a large selection of Irish beers and very courteous service.

First time dining in Boxty, and won't be the last. Great Irish food, and decent sized portions, even for their sides. We left comfortably full after our 1.5 course meal. Service with a smile from our waiter Mike also, not too intrusive and he added a bit of Dublin charm to the whole experience. Definitely would recommend if you're looking... More
