The Winding Stair restaurant (named for the spiral staircase which leads up to the lounge) is one of this area's main attractions, right next to the Liffey River and the Ha’penny Bridge. The setting is classical, leaning towards nostalgic, with wooden seats and furniture, old photographs and the atmosphere of another era. It’s worth booking ahead to avoid disappointment in case they don’t have space, and especially if it means you can get a table by the large windows that overlook the river. The menu includes delicatessen such as artisan Irish cheeses, chutney and homemade sausages, and a sumptuous wine menu. The most charming thing about this restaurant is its old-style bookshop, where you’ll find second hand rarities or the latest bestsellers that you can read sitting by the side of the glass-covered gallery, accompanied by a coffee and one of their spectacular desserts.
