Kennedy's is an established fine food bistro/restaurant. The downstairs seating area is cosy but a great place to relax for a morning breakfast/brunch. The upstairs restaurant area is small but perfectly formed, and a great spot for a family occasion. This is the original Kennedy's, with two further branches open in Clontarf and Raheny.

Because the sun was out this place was already pretty packed so we choose to order something and eat it in the nearby park. We had some toasted sandwiches, which were nice and made with fresh ingredients and also had two of their dessert: a cereal and red fruit bar and a brownie (which was awesome). Everything was tasty and... More

Met a friend here for late lunch. We were fortunate to get a table outdoors, so sitting in the sunshine having a glass of wine and a chat is always a good start. The waitress was very friendly and helpful as were the other staff. We had sandwiches, a glass of wine followed by coffees. It was a very pleasant... More

We used Kennedys foodstore for a christening over the weekend. I placed my order with the Raheny store & Niamh was helping me. She was fantastic. The food arrived on time. Was beautifully served. Everything tasted absolutely gorgeous & was so fresh. I cannot recommend this store enough for catering. I will definitely have them cater more parties for me.

Myself and my mum go for lunch most Mondays in Kennedy's Clontarf. I have always found the staff to be so friendly and courteous. The food is always s fresh and tasty and more importantly consistent. It is good home made food at affordable prices. Keep up the good work.

I have visited each of the raheny, fairview and clontarf stores. Food choices are varied and usually nice but overpriced for what you get. FYI this is not avoca which is what I feel they are aligning themselves to. Coffee is good. However the main flaw is the staff in each store, who are not at all friendly or courteous.... More

I come here regularly. The breakfast menu is great, and they do a great egg, toast, pudding combo! It's what I've found to work best for me. They have a huge range beyond that of course! Very friendly staff with coffee that is okay. Would recommend for a meet up with friends.
