Chef Paul Finnegan trained in Ashford Castle and originally created our lunch menu. Our food is cooked to order, dishes use the finest seasonal and locally sourced produce available on the day.
Menus on this website are subject to change as do our available choices during the seasons. If there’s a particular dish you’d like, please check with us prior to arrival. Our fish is Irish and caught sustainably where possible. Our meat is from Frank Doyle and only the best from Irish farmers. We use organic fare when we can. Everything is lovingly made in our own kitchen. We are proud to support local Irish artisan producers and serve good homely Irish food.
Finnegan’s provides a table service throughout for food and drinks.
Brother, son, friend, and colleague, Paul Finnegan returned to Dalkey in 1989 after several years of learning his trade in Ashford Castle and Adare Manor, to open a kitchen in his Father’s pub. In the 26 years that have passed since, he established a reputation based on simple, fresh, delicious food, one that has satisfied both locals and luminaries, without distinction. Remembering his dedication, we as a family are proud, along with our chefs and staff, to continue the tradition of good food, simply prepared for another 26 years and more.
