Strawberry Beds, Chapelizod, Dublin 20

One of Dublin’s best known and most inviting restaurants, The Angler’s Rest on Knockmaroon Hill at Chapelizod offers an extensive menu and top-class cuisine in the welcoming ambience of its French threadbare-style elegance. Just a 15-minute drive from Dublin City Centre, this landmark establishment in the seclusion of the Strawberry Beds – next door to the Phoenix Park – has a history that stretches back to Cromwellian times and the famous patriot Michael Collins, and has long been considered the favourite watering hole of anglers fishing along the banks of the adjacent River Liffey. Extensive car parking adds to the attraction, especially for tour groups. Today, the tradition of great food and drink continues, while at weekends, widely varying live music adds to atmosphere. Its culinary reputation, including the freshest seafood landed by Wrights of Howth, and a wide selection of national and international brands of beers, wines and spirits, has made The Angler’s Rest a magnet for locals and tourists alike. A sprawling Beer Garden is renowned for its summer barbeques, the ‘Salmon Bar’ can cater for private or corporate parties or functions while the stylish upstairs function room – with a capacity of up to 120 – is perfect for weddings, communions, christenings and other special events. The Angler’s Rest is part of the Wright Bar Group which also includes Wrights Cafe Bar in Swords, and The Bloody Stream and Findlaters, both in Howth.

What a super location. Its such a nice drive down below the M50 bridge and to find this place there was great. You don't have to try seafood but you should. Fish pie was particularly good. Read more...

We stopped off here one day as we had heard about it from a few people. The food was nice and hit the spot. I don't normally venture to this area in Dublin but I would be more than happy to go back to the Anglers rest as the atmosphere ... Read more...

Went there early evening on Mother's Day for just some bar food and while the service was good the calamari was very bad - extremely rubbery and disappointing given that we went there for seafood due to the owners being Wright's... ... Read more...

I have been going there since I finished school around the corner in Mount Sackville. It's a great spot. I went in there a few times with my sister originally for Nostalgic reasons, until we tried the seafood chowder. It is to die ... Read more...
