Really lovely spot. It is quiet, quaint and offers excellent food, wine and service. The menu is broad enough to offer something for a wide variety of people.

A simple night out with some friends, turned into a great evening full of drinks and great snacks. The atmosphere was great, the layout impeccable, but the service took it to another level! Victor was a fabulous host, and we will be returning soon!

I've been to Ely for wine tasting before and had a great evening. The Big Rhône wine tasting though is great! Lots of top class producers showcasing their wines! And a great place to have a bite to eat afterwards.

Description
Since 1999, the iconic ely wine bar has paved the way for engaging, rewarding and fantastic value wines in Dublin. Not only characterised by its extensive list of 100 wines by the glass, 400 by the bottle, it's also loved for its melt-in-the-mouth organic beef, organic pork and "Craggy Island" lamb - sourced through ely's organic family farm in The Burren, Co. Clare.
