Seafood Bar And Grill


Welcome Back to Matt the Thresher

We are very lucky to have such a spacious Restaurant & Bar.

Our focus remains on being a relaxed place to eat and drink with a focus on the best wild Irish fish we can buy.

We will be following all the guidelines and our staff have been fully trained regarding the new rules and regulations for the preparation and service of food and drinks.

Matt the Thresher has always maintained the highest standards of food hygiene and safety. Along with regular inspections by the HSE, we also employ an independent food safety company to ensure we operate and achieve those standards consistently.

We have made a number of changes to protect both you and our staff going forward. We have installed new automated hand sanitisers. We have reduced the number of tables in the restaurant. Invested in screens which can be moved to suit your requirements. The menu has been reduced due to new physical distancing protocols, but over time we will increase it.
Toilet facilities will be regularly maintained with a member of staff specifically assigned for cleaning & to regulate numbers.

We look forward to looking after you and your guests.


Matt the Thresher is a bright stylish seafood restaurant with a fully licenced bar located in the city centre, within the heart of Georgian Dublin, between Fitzwilliam Square and Merrion Square only a short stroll from St. Stephens Green.

We specialise in fresh wild Irish seafood but we have an extensive menu with something to suit all requirements. Matt’s has a grand bar boasting a full range of local and international beers & whiskeys, a fine cocktail menu along with a well-sourced comprehensive wine list.

We have a wonderful team providing the very best in Irish hospitality and food, all of whom look forward to welcoming you.
We are open 7 days, serving food and drink until late.
