Dear Friend of Glovers Alley,
It’s a very special time here at Glovers Alley by Andy McFadden with our very first Christmas season now in full swing. We have lots more festiveness in store for you, too.

We have extended our December opening hours especially to accommodate get-togethers and parties, whether small or large in number. Spirits are high and we’re looking forward to welcoming you to indulge in our seasonal festive and Christmas menus.

Read on for more details.


Welcome to Christmas, Glovers Alley-Style

Glovers Alley is all about relaxed luxury, making it the perfect place for your special Christmas gathering.

Groups of between eight and forty people can be accommodated in the elegant Glovers Alley dining room which has lovely views out to the atmospheric treetops and lights of St Stephen’s Green. Or, for an even more decadent experience, your party can be hosted in one of the restaurant’s sumptuous private or semi-private dining areas.

Andy has created a luxury four-course Festive Menu, which is available for lunch or dinner, in addition to a lavish Christmas Lunch Menu, with two-course, three-course, or six-course options, as well as a three-course Group Christmas Dinner Menu. You can view these special menus here.

We’d be delighted to help you plan your special gathering at Glovers Alley this Christmas. If you’d like to speak to us about your requirements, please phone us on (01) 244 0733, or email

We’d be happy to talk to you about our standard group dining options as well as our private and semi-private group dining choices, which you can read more about here.

Advance booking is essential for groups. You can book online at, by phoning (01) 244 0733, or by emailing


Extended Festive Opening Hours, Including Lunch


In addition to our regular opening hours, in the run-up to Christmas, Glovers Alley will be opening specially for lunch on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from the 11th of December, for both lunch and dinner on Sunday the 23rd of December and for lunch on Christmas Eve.

We will be reopening after our Christmas break for dinner on the 8th of January 2019.


Glovers Alley Kitchen Experience Gift Idea


For people who are as curious about cooking as they are about eating, the interactive and immersive three-hour Glovers Alley Kitchen Experience makes a great festive gift idea for the budding or serious cook in your life. Participants get to join Ireland’s Best Chef Andy McFadden and his team in the restaurant kitchen where they don an apron and learn top techniques, with lots of opportunities for tastings, followed by a four-course lunch with Champagne and wine pairings, and a goodie bag to take home.

The Kitchen Experience has proved very popular since its launch in July, earning some fine praise from people who have undertaken it, with one reviewer writing, “I really enjoyed the Kitchen Experience and lunch. They got the right atmosphere between friendliness and attention to detail. The food was really delicious, especially the grouse. All in all, a wonderful day.”

The Kitchen Experience happens on the first Friday of every month, it’s limited to four people per session and costs €145 per person, with the option to bring a guest for the lunch part for €95. You can purchase Kitchen Experience gift vouchers directly from Glovers Alley by phoning (01) 244 0733, or by emailing
