YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD EATERY

BOOK NOW

Union8 is a contemporary neighbourhood Eatery situated in the heart of the vibrant residential, cultural & business district of Dublin 8. Close to Kilmainham Gaol, IMMA, St. James’s Hospital and Hilton Hotel Kilmainham.

After 3 years in operation we do hope our name reflects our goal – to become the hub and focal point of our community & for those from further afield! We also chose it because of our location (union of roads) and our belief as to what a truly local restaurant should be (union of people).

We are interested in achieving prominence based on consistency & quality rather than publicity. The seasonal dishes are modern & well-balanced, with just a few ingredients. The wine list is adventurous and keenly priced, and the service is professional while appearing casual and friendly. All of which can be enjoyed in a stylish contemporary space.

We are open 7 days every week. Our food offering is served throughout the morning, day and evening. From Morning Coffee,Lunch & Day menu to Casual neighbourhood eatery by night. Not to mention our Saturday & Sunday brunch served from 10.30am to 3.30pm.  Our 2 & 3 Course Early Bird menu is available every evening (Mon-Sun) from 5pm-6.30pm. Our A La Carte Dinner is served each evening from 5pm onwards.  

–Selection of Wines, Cocktails , Spirits, Craft & Draught Beers available–
