Hawksmoor Restaurant Group To Open Dublin Venue On 25 May

Hawksmoor is opening its first restaurant in Ireland on 25 May.


Work on Dublin’s National Bank building is weeks from completion, transforming 34 College Green into a 152-seater restaurant, back-to-back bar, and private dining space, which will open on Thursday 25 May, with bookings opening in early May.

Subscribers to the Hawksmoor Dublin mailing list will be invited to book a table during its soft-launch period – from 17 to 24 May – with 50% off the food bill, as the restaurant works towards perfecting its offering. You can sign up on

Hawksmoor started in 2006, when two childhood friends, Will Beckett and Huw Gott, opened a restaurant serving steaks and seafood alongside a cocktail programme in East London.


“We are really excited to be opening soon,” said general manager Alex McGettigan, who was born in Bray, raised in Bristol, and is now back living among family in Bray.

“After restoring this wonderful bank building to its former glory, we can’t wait to welcome our first guests through those beautifully grand doors, so as many people as possible can enjoy the Hawksmoor experience in this iconic Dublin building.”

Hawksmoor has just published the company’s first annual impact report. In the past year, Hawksmoor has become a carbon-neutral steak restaurant group in the UK and US, and it has also set out a plan to get to net zero and gained B Corp certification. The impact report sets ambitious targets and provides transparency about the progress made to date.

Twelfth Restaurant

Hawksmoor Dublin is the group’s 12th restaurant and has created over 90 jobs in Dublin.
