About Union8

The name reflects our goal – to become the hub and focal point of our community & for those from further afield! We also chose it because of our location (union of roads) and our belief as to what a truly local restaurant should be (union of people).

We are interested in achieving prominence based on consistency & quality rather than publicity. The seasonal dishes are modern & well-balanced, with just a few ingredients. The wine list is adventurous and keenly priced, and the service is professional while appearing casual and friendly. All of which can be enjoyed in a stylish contemporary space.

This place is absolutely amazing! From the moment you walk in, you will get a warm welcome. Staff is brilliant! Starting from Mark, then another gentleman that was Italian i would say and the new staff, gentleman from Turkey. Such a nice a pleasant people who do their job really well! Food is perfect! Ravioli as a starter is a must have. Steak even better! Can't say enough of this place but it is a definitely must see. Thank you! Damir, Tea and Nuria.

Food was amazing not going to take away from that but the main fish portion size was more like a starter size 1 spoon of rice and a bit of curry most definitely is not a main meal .. we waited ages for our our dessert dishes to be cleared so that we could ask for the bill we needed up having to leave the table to get the attention of the waitress ... plus the toilets completely unhygienic kids pants on the floor and just filthy ...

Food was delicious. Really really good. Mains were a little slow to arrive. Service otherwise excellent. The restaurant felt cold, I had a woolly jumper and my two friends felt a bit cold, perhaps just due to the change in weather.

Really nice evening and exceptionally helpful staff. Initially thought booking was for 2 and explained 4 and she said it should be ok even though lots of tables vacant and we leaving. Really nice eateries and food was delish. Smaller portions of am is carte for kids also so 5 stars all round.

Beautiful space matched by beautiful food. We loved the steaks, ravioli and charcuterie. All complemented by great staff. Our first visit, it won't be our last. Please open in Dublin 15. We badly need a classy restaurant like Union8 out here.

Love the atmosphere, food and service at Union 8 I often pop in for brunch at the weekends as can honestly say I cannot fault it in anything. Whether I pop in for dinner, breakfast or brunch staff always go above and beyond and the food is Devine. Perfect neighborhood restaurant in Dublin 8

Nous avons été superbement reçus. Le petit dejeuner était fort sympathique, et le cadre très élégant. Je recommande vivement ce restaurant pour sa qualité et pour son emplacement (parfait après ou avant la visite de la prison de Kikmainham).

I enjoyed the meal alot. Concise menu but a nice selection, food quality to a high standard - really enjoyed the Duck Starter, Rump of Lamb was very nice - I should have asked for it well done, presentation of all meals excellent. Service excellent - attentive but not intrusive. Nice atmosphere. Improvements to get 5 stars from me - give an option for the lamb to be well done, the pineapple dessert was very nice but it was served cold with ice cream - try serving the pineapple warm with the same ice cream it would be excellent. BTW you need a knife and fork to eat the pineapple desert a spoon doesn't work. Keep up the good work ................
