Just in case you need a reminder of our restaurants, please see below a brief description of each.



Pioneering since 1999 and completely reimagined in 2019, ELY WINE BAR is a world-class wine bar, a must for anybody who enjoys a great glass of wine, a classic cocktail, excellent whiskeys or even a cold glass of beer. Food provenance has always been important at Ely and our seasonal menus reflect the best of Irish produce. In the heart of Georgian Dublin, just off St. Stephen’s Green, Ely is the iconic and original Dublin wine bar with an intimate, contemporary setting.



Situated in the vibrant Dublin Docklands alongside the river Liffey, it is Ireland’s oldest wine venue located within beautifully restored 1821 wine vaults in the CHQ Building. Our two fully licensed bars serve excellent Irish whiskeys, ice-cold beer, innovative signature as well as classic cocktails, and of course, brilliant wines.



The latest addition to the ELY family is in the bustling town of Maynooth. This wine shop doubles as a wine bar and café with a dining room upstairs where lunch, dinner and weekend brunch are served. Plus lots of nooks and crannies downstairs for that wine bar feel. A place where you could buy any of the 400 wines to enjoy there or bring home.
