The freshest ingredients are used in Wright’s Seafood Chowder
Wright’s Anglers Rest
One of Dublin’s best known and most inviting bars/ restaurants, The Angler’s Rest offers an extensive menu and top-class cuisine in the welcoming ambience of its French threadbare-style and elegance. Originally built as a hotel in 1865 and used by honeymooning Dubliners, it has always been called The Anglers Rest and is still serving great seafood to this day.
Just a 10-15-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. It has long been considered as his favourite watering hole and for anglers fishing along the banks of the adjacent River Liffey.
Today, the tradition of great food and drink continues with a strong 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.
