The Cill Airne is a really super venue.The location is great on the north quays, near the Convention Centre and within easy reach of the 3 Arena. We have used it for pre-match functions and Christmas functions, which were a great success. The atmosphere is great and the food and wine are reasonably priced. We have become regulars for all...

Seriously the best burgers around the city! No other burger comes close... not to mention the rest of the menu: the steak is tender & tasty, the chowder is SUPERB, the wings are amazing... and then thee is the wine - we had a Chianti Rufina, brilliant addition to our meal. I'm definitely coming back!

The interior is lovely, the staff friendly and the food to die for. The dessert was the best I have ever had in any Dublin restaurant.

Unusual setting for us we normally like our feet on land. The place was recommended by a local and didn't disappoint. From the start friendly and warming. Food was delicious and value for money, by far one of our best meals in Dublin fair city. Well worth the walk down.

We booked our special 5oh birthday onboard the MV Cill Arne in 2012 and were blown away with the venue and excellent service. We've been back several times - to the bar and restaurant and once recently to the main restaurant. We're never disappointed - the food is aways amazing and the setting is just perfect for a romantic night... More
