Wright’s Anglers Rest
One of Dublin’s best known and most inviting 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 the 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.
The charming Sackville Terrace is renowned for summer dining, while the ‘Salmon Room’ can cater for intimate private dining, and the stylish upstairs Phoenix room – with a capacity of up to 100 – is perfect for weddings & other special events.
Its picturesque location next to the banks of the Liffey at the Strawberry Beds and its reputation for fine food has made The Anglers Rest an increasingly popular and alternative venue for weddings.
