Excellent wine, organic food, a relaxed mood, Ely is one of Dublin’s most atmospheric spaces.

For romance, a gossip, or an intense chat, you can't go wrong at Ely Wine bar. I love it. This Dublin star is one of the few places that appeals to all. Simple things are done to perfection – wonderful wine, champagne, sherry etc, and great food, the mood is convivial and the setting is comfortable. Ok, you’ll spend a little more than average, but it’s worth it.

Recommended dishes

The burger and chips are lip-smacking, and always hit the spot. The oysters are popular too.

Tables downstairs are the most fun and romantic.
