Restaurants & Bars

The Coburg, a true brasserie restaurant, promises style and simplicity with its distinctive local charm and hospitality. The neighbouring Iveagh Gardens, once known as the Coburg Gardens, gave inspiration to the design of The Coburg. During the 1800’s, The Coburg Gardens housed a magnificent gas-lit winter garden and stunning iron structure, it also served as event headquarters for the legendary Royal Horse Bazaar. Adopting the Coburg name inspired design features from upholstery of the banquette seating, mirrors, light fixtures and artwork using materials such as leather, marble, porcelain, and brass to pay homage to The Coburg Gardens.
The menu at The Coburg Dublin Brasserie restaurant features international dishes to complement traditional Irish cuisine, using locally sourced, natural ingredients. To keep things fresh, the menu changes with the seasons, to ensure an ever changing dining experience.
