The Coburg: Dublin’s New Dining Experience at The Conrad
Within the five-star Conrad Hotel, you will find Dublin’s newest dining experience, The Coburg. Opened as part of the Conrad’s €8 million renovation plan, it promises style and simplicity with a distinctive local charm.
Menu highlights include seafood bouillabaisse, roaring water bay rope mussels, Coburg club sandwich and lobster and prawn ravioli. When talking about these and other dishes, Dmitry Stroykov, Executive Chef at Conrad Dublin said: “The Coburg is a completely new addition to Dublin’s up and coming dining scene. The ingredients we use in the kitchen are central to our menu creation and guests will recognise that many producers and suppliers are local to the area. Guests will be able to drop by for a casual brunch, a late business lunch, or an early pre-theatre supper, which offers real flexibility to diners who don’t want their schedules determined by a restaurant’s opening times.”
Champagne lovers will indulge at the brasserie’s Champagne table, where they’ll be able to enjoy elevated views over the restaurant and taste a selection of the finest bubbles from Henriot, the house Champagne. Galway Bay oysters are expected to be a popular companion to the drink, as Dmitry mentions.
An air of restrained elegance confers The Coburg with a luxurious yet approachable atmosphere which draws much of its aesthetic from the grand Irish tradition of equine sports and pairs it with the contemporary elegance of Conrad Dublin. Only the best quality materials – leather, marble, porcelain, and brass– were used to pay homage to The Coburg Gardens (known today as the Iveagh Gardens) which served as event headquarters for the legendary and renowned Royal Horse Bazaar from 1817 to 1865.
Martin Mangan, General Manager of Conrad Dublin explains. “During the 1800’s, Coburg, which was a public park, housed a magnificent gas-lit winter garden and stunning iron structure, inspired by London’s Crystal Palace. Adopting the Coburg name is very much in line with our theme for the new-look Conrad Dublin, which features a distinctly local aesthetic.”
