Orwell Road

Bamboo Cocktail

Mooncoin beetroot, St Tola, blackberry hoisin

Orwell Road is a casual neighbourhood restaurant in the heart of Dublin’s Rathgar, with all the love, effort, and attention to detail you would expect in a fine dining restaurant. We focus on creating beautiful food and a unique atmosphere for our customers. Approaching our cooking with humility and a team mentality, we focus on helping each other grow and learn, together. This philosophy extends throughout the restaurant from the kitchen to our front of house, working together as colleagues and friends to ensure that Orwell Road is a space that respects and adds to our local community. 

Daniel Hannigan, Head Chef

Orwell’s Favourite Cocktail

Guided by head chef Daniel Hannigan, our kitchen uses as many local, Irish ingredients as we can get our hands on, with a clear focus on sustainable sourcing. In creating our menu we have one defining rule: everything must be delicious. Maintaining this simple idea is at the core of everything we do, and we were honoured to be added to the MICHELIN Guide. We want each member of our team to be excited by their day-to-day and we strive to ensure our workplace is a positive and energetic environment. We believe this is an essential ingredient to creating great food in a wonderful atmosphere. The whole team was thrilled to see our hard work rewarded by the Irish Restaurant Awards, which named Orwell Road 'Newcomer of the Year' in 2022.

Respect for the incredible ingredients we use is a fundamental part of our philosophy and approach to how we make food. As a team, we have worked hard to find incredible suppliers who put their heart and soul into growing, making, and raising the ingredients we use. We show respect for our suppliers and their produce by setting out to make every dish we create delicious, whilst avoiding needless waste.

Neighbourhood Menu

Orwell Road is part of a family of vibrant, exciting restaurants by brothers Conor and Marc Bereen. Conor and Marc have been designing and running restaurants in Dublin for nearly two decades, with their long established Coppinger Row and Charlotte Quay being continually recognised as amongst Dublin’s best restaurants. Marc’s focus is on all aspects relating to front of house and customer experience, whilst Conor drives the design approach for their restaurants. Their passion for creating restaurants with great atmosphere, food, and personality continues to be rewarded. As well as winning in the 2022 Irish Restaurant Awards for 'Best Newcomer', Orwell Road was shortlisted in 2023 for 'Best Emerging Irish Cuisine'.
