Nearly a year on from opening, Orwell Road, by Bereen brothers Marc and Conor, is well established in the heart of Rathgar. The modern Irish restaurant uses the best and freshest local Irish produce, and Head Chef Dan Hannigan’s cooking has won a very loyal following for this very convivial and stylish local favourite.

Alongside their Summer Dinner a la carte menu, served from Tuesday to Sunday from 5pm to 10pm, Orwell Road now offers a ‘Neighbourhood Set Menu’ served from Tuesday to Thursday, and Sunday from 5pm to 6pm. It’s the perfect way to enjoy the signature cuisine of Orwell Road from just €30 for two courses, or €38 for three.

Marc Bereen said: “The evenings are brighter, and the village is bustling. Many locals want to eat earlier, and we’re also seeing people who work from home wanting to pop out for a nice supper, meet friends, and enjoy the atmosphere too.”
