Whitefriar Grill, with its funky New York vibe and modern Irish cuisine is now one of Dublin’s hottest steakhouse grill destinations for casual dining, best brunch, meaty steaks and great cocktails. Located on Aungier Street at the top of the Dublin 2 creative quarter it’s open every evening for dinner and weekends from 10:30am for Brunch. We cater for group dining and WFG can be hired exclusively for wedding celebrations or birthday parties with enough notice. Winner of “Best Brunch in Dublin” by popular vote in the LovinDublin Awards in 2014, its our mission to keep it that way! Whitefriar Grill re-launched brunch in Dublin several years ago and we have been number one for weekend brunch since then. Our innovative take on classic brunch dishes borders between gluttony and gourmet from dishes like our Lobster Hash to the Southern style slow roasted pulled pork, they are all unique and classics. Brunch in Whitefriar Grill is a phenomenon that you cannot miss when you visit Dublin.
