About The Bridge 1859
The Bridge 1859 is located in the heart of Dublins' Ballsbridge. We're located right beside the RDS and just minutes from the Aviva Stadium and city centre.
This is a superb place! this is the 2nd year that we have chosen the Bridge to host our drinks event, we have already booked in for next year. The Staff are just brilliant, nothing is too much. They helped me with all my needs and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great evening. if you are looking for a place to host a party I cannot recommend it enough! See you next year!!!!
Hi, I had a large group in for lunch on Friday just gone and it was embarrassing how bad the service was! We had to pre-order the food days in advance which was fine if not a bit strange but somehow the food seemed to take ages to arrive and one of our party waited over 45 minutes after the first plate had arrived at our table to receive her food even though the table behind us got their food half way through our table getting ours. the waiter that we had shouted an apology as he walked out the door that could of been aimed at anyone in the room and it was just bizarre! We did have to add one person last minute and it was accommodated which was great but it was no excuse for the service that was given. It was a client lunch and all 3 companies came away with messages of thanks so much for the catch up but let's not go anywhere near that place again.....unfortunate as I had high hopes for it being a great place to take clients. Anyway hopefully the service issues can be sorted for anyone else going for food.
Thank you so much for a lovely evening. We are a group of mature students who just finished their final exams in UCD and celebrated together at The Bridge. We have decided that The Bridge is our new meeting place every second month on a Wednesday evening for the early bird special and for drinks and good cheer. So in a way The Bridge is the link which is keeping us together. You could say a Bridge to friendship.
Really great venue, and food. Would not hesitate to recommend.
We were a large group of 18. Jessica & Simon were very helpful in advance in terms of organising the menu and evening for us, and the service on the night was also very good especially Laura who was with us throughout the night. Food quality and presentation was excellent, and the atmosphere in the bar was great. All in our group were impressed with the night.
Incredible night celebrating my 40th. Highly recommend The Bridge 1859
Staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Our Barman was fantastic, kept the drinks flowing and great cocktails. We selected the miniature gourmet option for food and the mini steak sandwiches were to die for, food was very reasonable too. I’d highly recommend for a corporate night out or birthday gathering.
I had a room booked upstairs at The Bridge for a corporate event. The drinks and food were delicious! The staff were also very attentive and great to deal with. Eduardo was lovely, he did such a great job and went out of his way for us. We all had such a great night and received excellent feedback from our invited guests. Thank you for the flawless service we will be back!
Jessica, Laura and the whole staff were fantastic and so accommodating for the baby shower, despite the adverse weather conditions the team stayed in contact and supported the event in every way they could. I can't wait to plan and host an event there again!
Really good fingers food, great choice of beers
Had a really great evening at The Bridge with some colleagues and Friends. The food was delicious and the team took great care to make sure it arrived at the time we wanted which was super. The team were really good fun too so that added to the evening. Looking forward to the next visit !
Nice venue, great ambience, atmosphere and service. A good area was set aside for our group. Only downside to the night was the platter we ordered, which was rather disappointing: all bland meats with no sauces, only some soggy falafel for the vegetarians, and fairly pricy at fifty euro. This pub is a great addition to the area and we'll definitely be back, but there is certainly room for improvement when it comes to interesting, modern sharable food.
We had a great event in the River room and had fantastic service from Caoimhín and the rest of the team. The food was fantastic, and having the River Room with about 35-40 people was perfect with one dedicated barman. Our waitress who's name I didn't get was also very helpful and friendly. I'd highly recommend the River Room for any private parties and events, we hosted our engagement party there.
Great place to go, with great food and excellent service.
We had a fantastic 40th birthday party at The Bridge-the staff were all really helpful and we were looked after superbly. The food was a cut above the usual buffet party fare you often get and small things like keeping our decorations, presents and leftover cake overnight made our evening hassle free. Thank you!
Had a private party at the Bridge and couldn't fault the service that was provided.
Staff very helpful and food great
HI Jessica - just to say thank you so much for hosting our night for 80 attendees at such short notice on Friday last - everyone had an enjoyable evening - I really appreciate the service from you all, especially the two very plesant bar staff on the night. Evelyn
We had a wonderful evening with a large group. The staff was professional and friendly and the food was incredible. The platters went down very well with everyone.
Super evening had in The Bridge 1859, food was amazing and the service was second to none. Will definetly be back!
This relates to a Friday evening after work function in mid-August 2017 for about 30 people in an upstairs private room (having a full bar with a dedicated young lady managing proceedings with alacrity). The food platters were excellent and were enjoyed by all. Manager Dave provided cogent information and advice to make the evening go well. Communication (personally, by phone and by eMail) was as it should be for a pub/restaurant of this quality. If you book a function here and it does not go extremely well, I would be very surprised. (For the avoidance of doubt, I have no relationship of any sort with The Bridge 1859 or with any of the owners/managers/staff.)
We had our AGM here recently, the set up and service were beyond efficient, as we have come to expect in our favourite venue for meetings and social events. Great food and staff and so helpful.
We recently hosted a 50th birthday party in the River function room at the Bridge, Jessica was our events coordinator who was extremely helpful in the lead up to the event, answering all of our questions in a helpful way. Additionally the staff who managed the function on the night were really friendly and attentive. The food was to a high standard too, we were very happy with the event, thank you to the Bridge team!
I Found the Venue to be perfect for my requirements and would recommend this venue to anyone looking to hold a small to medium event in a private location.
