Dining at the


Throughout our history, the restaurant area of Johnnie Fox’s has been affectionately known as The Hearth.

The traditional Irish Hearth was always the heart of old Irish homes, where the fire was always burning and meals were prepared.

It served as a central hub, where loved ones would gather, free from judgement, to prepare and eat produce from the fertile land, to discuss matters of home and family. During these sit-ins, alliances were struck, marriage matches were made and stories, both entertaining and sacred, both fanciful and historical were recounted. At Johnnie Fox’s, “Dining at the Hearth” aims to capture the essence of this cherished tradition.

…Like stepping in to a 19th Century Home with Standards of the 21st Century

The majority of ingredients for the restaurant are sourced locally, from high-quality “farm to fork suppliers”. Great food comes from great ingredients, and it is for this reason that customers are drawn to Johnnie Fox’s year after year. The menu offering boasts classic Irish dishes along with impressive seafood dishes and a few modern favourites for balance.

Johnnie Fox’s also has its own bakery, with all breads and desserts baked fresh daily.

Guests can enjoy either lunch, or dinner from our Hearth Menu, then sit back and enjoy the live music to finish off the evening.

What People Say

Such a wonderful place – great food and music and overall ambiance! I even forgot my bag at the restaurant and a staff member drove all the way to me in Rathgar to deliver my bag!

Always a pleasure. It was a quiet weeknight. We had a very nice small family reunion with music in the background which allowed us to enjoy our conversations. The food was wonderful and so was our server. Thank you!

First time visiting Jonnie fox’s we came up from Dublin and cannot wait to get back. The lamb shank was to die for as well as the banofee pie and the guinness was 10/10… service was so quick and the girls serving us were so nice. We can’t wait to get back! Thanks
