Silk Road Café

In a fine location in the heart of the city centre, Dublin Castle provides wonderful gardens and historic architecture which greatly enhance the enjoyment of a visit to this unusual restaurant, which is in the clock tower in the ground floor of the Chester Beatty Library (European Museum of the Year in 2002, and one of the few Dublin museums offering free entry).


You will know that you're in the right place when you notice the uncharacteristic aroma of Middle Eastern spices wafting towards you on the Dublin air.


Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, vegetarian and organic are the themes brought together by Abraham Phelan and his small but dedicated team, who create inspired versions of classics like Greek moussaka, Moroccan cous cous, falafel, spinach & feta pie and delicious salads to the delight of their many returning customers.


Fresh organic herbs are used in all dishes and, in line with halal/kosher rules, all dishes are made without the use of pork or beef. Prices are very reasonable.


** The Silk Road Café also do outside catering; contact directly to discuss and to view canapé, sit down and evening buffet menus.
