Winner of the prestigious Santa Rita Bar Food Award 2010 and one of Dublin’s best known and most inviting restaurants, The Angler’s Rest on Knockmaroon Hill in 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 has long been the favourite watering hole of many anglers fishing the waters of the adjacent River Liffey.
Today, the tradition of great food and drink continues, and its culinary reputation – complemented by the availability of the freshest seafood, landed by Wrights of Howth – and its 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.
Its charming beer garden is renowned for summer barbeques, while the ‘Salmon Room’ can cater for private or corporate parties and functions, and the stylish upstairs function room – with a capacity of up to 120 – is perfect for weddings, communions, christenings and other special events.
At weekends, a wide variety of live musical acts perform and extensive car parking is available making The Angler’s Rest easily accessible to tour groups.
