The Watermill is well known throughout Dublin as one of the best restaurants, especially because of our unique speciality for serving dishes on a slab of hot lava rock. Our ”From the Stone” specialities are prepared by heating up a piece of lava rock for 6 hours where temperatures can reach a massive 350° Celsius. The meat is sealed by our chefs before it is placed on the slab which is then sent to the table so that the customer can continue the cooking process themselves for the perfectly made dish.

Of course, this may be your first time in The Watermill but we'd like to tell you that you may already know us. If you've seen the film version of Roddy Doyle's “The Snapper” then you may already be familiar with us without even knowing it. The reason that our premises was picked for the film adaptation was that Mr. Doyle has been seen here from time to time enjoying a drink. And he's not the only one, over the years we've served food and drink to some of Ireland's most famous writers, singers, sportstars, celebrities and television & radio personalities. You'll never know who you may bump into at The Watermill.

Our bar has a beautiful warm feel to it, we chose to redecorate the pub back in 2001 and we thought that a dark mahogany finish would give the pub that welcoming feeling. We hope that you will agree with us.
