Private Dining & Private Wine Tastings at ELY WINE BAR

At ELY WINE BAR, situated on 22 Ely Place and just off St. Stephen’s Green, we have recently completely reimagined Ireland’s best wine bar with a stunning refurb. As well as a great basement bar and dining area we have a beautiful, newly renovated, private dining room on the ground floor, perfect for up to 30 guests. Our multi-award-winning wine list is complemented with excellent cocktails, beers and fresh, flavoursome Irish food. ELY WINE BAR is ideal for after-work drinks and bites, corporate and private dining and private wine tastings.

Fresh, Seasonal Menus

From the beginning, ELY has been fully committed to food provenance, always delivering fresh, flavoursome Irish food, as can be seen throughout all ELY’s menus. All beef, pork and lamb are locally sourced. Everything, including our fresh, locally caught seafood and fresh vegetables, is prepared inhouse daily.

Possibly the nicest lamb I’ve ever had. Dessert was equally mouthwatering.
