Since we opened Hartley’s in 2007 we are delighted to have seen it become an integral part of Dun Laoghaire’s vibrant waterfront scene. The Victorian railway station, the original ticket hall of the Kingstown Station, with its beautiful high ceilings is, to us, one of the best dining rooms in the country. And in the late spring, as soon as the weather gets warm enough, we open up the terrace and outside cocktail bar, and it becomes the perfect daytime venue for lazy lunches and evening pre-dinner drinks.
The menus are diverse but uncomplicated. Ross and Alan run the kitchen by focusing on local, seasonal and un-fussy ingredients. The backbone of our food is our steaks and seafood, but we are always evolving our specials and garnishes. We cook what we like to eat and we care about how we cook it. Shannon and Eva have built their floor team to be at once friendly yet professional. We have a gorgeous, big bar for cocktails and drinks, with high tables for a quick bite, and high stools for pre/after dinner drinks.
We are very proud of our restaurant and staff. The success of Hartley’s is based on the hard work & high standards of all of our team, and we hope you like it.
Kirsty and Julie.
