Superb seafood and hospitality in this tiny restaurant in sleepy Clontarf. On 2 visits during a week-long stay in the Dublin area we enjoyed: prawn rice balls starter; "Special" cod (topped with mussels, prawns); monkfish; tempura prawn starter; ling fish; and sea bass. All excellent.

I visited Hemingways on a Thursday evening. A very good menu. The food was excellent, a fine selection of very fresh fish and shellfish, very well cooked and presented. A good wine list. A very good value meal. Highly recommended.
