About Dillisk on the Docks

Dillisk on The Docks combines both modern-creative and traditional styles of cooking using only local producers. Our focus is authenticity, to sell local, delicious and remarkable food and drinks meeting the highest standards of quality, freshness and seasonality. We offer a whole new palette of flavours introducing the diner to seaweed, the unsung superfood of the sea among other locally sourced flavours.
Fusing this hand harvested vegetable from the pristine Atlantic Waters off the Connemara coast with mouth-watering tastes from local suppliers and artisan ingredients.

From the moment you enter the inviting surroundings at the newly re-designed bar and restaurant, the Dillisk experience begins. Earth-toned covered walls, dramatic lighting and the warm tans of the tufted leather banquettes are a gentle complement to the subdued red-shaded sconces, elegant gold draping’s and spirited red, yellow, and tan carpeting that surround Dillisk on the Docks.

The relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant is also a place to sit back with Dillisk’s innovative cocktails and extensive wine list not forgetting their selection of gins, whiskey’s and spirits. The bar, with its stylishly rustic decor, comfortable furnishings, muted lighting, and blend of soft and vibrant colours is a sizeable sleek bar surrounded by conversation tables and pockets of inviting living room seating.
Many of the team at Harbour Hotel are from the West of Ireland, others have been captivated by the charm of life in Galway City and have decided to call it home. All share a passion for the culture, spirit and beauty of Galway and enjoy sharing the best of their local knowledge with visitors to the area.

The service was below par. Ewa the waitress took ages to bring our menus initially, we had to ask her for them and also for our drinks, both of which should be an automatic procedure once we’d been seated. We felt the waiting staff, although polite and friendly were quite inexperienced.

Not bad, but took a bit for a waiter to greet us. Some other guest was using the phone really loudly (watching something), but well.. nothing that the bar could do, I guess.

Room was very good - well presented. Shower - could not get to work Disappointed with restaurant menu and made a bad choice when being seated - horribly noisy. Table service good. Very helpful reception and good parking option

The food and drink was delicious, no problems there at all. The atmosphere was atrocious; we were situated in the corner of a very busy reception area, been stared at by every single passer by, of which there were many. I had to ask for butter and jam for our scones-approximately ten minutes after receiving them. Got our cappuccinos (only for two people) almost half an hour after ordering them.

Waiters far too busy during this festive NY Eve. Had to wait too long to get served. Shame as it’s a nice place.

Great food, way better than highly acclaimed Sole. Atmosphere a bit sterile, but good to be able to watch Wimbledon during dinner.

Went to Dillisk for a three-generation Father's Day treat with my parents and children. Some of the group were very late due to traffic but the restaurant delayed the meal and provided fresh bread to nibble and drinks to keep us going while we waited. When the full group arrived, we enjoyed our delicious food and were impressed with the friendly, attentive service. All in all, a lovely meal and a wonderful family experience.

The foyer was abit cold with the table so near the door. Would have preferred some more simple sandwiches.

I thought the meal was nice - but expensive for what it was. The steak fat had not been rendered down, my chowder was tasteless & the cod skin not crispy

Firstly we were put at a low table in the hotel lobby. For an afternoon tea that wasn’t exactly cheap I was expecting a normal table with tablecloth, in a less public setting. The service-we saw our waitress once when we were seated and she brought us our tea/coffee. We had to go to reception to ask for another drink after which the waitress reappeared. Only one side plate was given meaning I had to butter my scone on the same plate and with the same knife that I had used for a Caesar wrap. The cakes were all very tasteless and bland. I also had to go looking for a waitress to pay for the tea. While you do not want them hovering, you would think when the customer is seated in another room the staff would walk through every 10-15 minutes so you can at least feel their presence.
