A unique wedding calls for a unique wedding venue, and ely bar & brasserie, in the heart of the IFSC in Dublin, is exactly that.

Located over 2 levels in the CHQ building, ely bar & brasserie offers couples and their guests fine dining in relaxed and historical surroundings at unbeatable prices . Originally built in 1821, Stack A, Custom House Quay functioned as a tobacco and wine warehouse before being renovated and transformed into the award-winning CHQ centre where ely bar & brasserie is located today.

With its stunning vaulted cellars, heated waterside terrace and light-filled Atrium Bar, this venue showcases what we do best at ely; excellent service, great wines & beers and smooth food in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

Whether you would like a grand affair, an intimate reception, a traditional dinner, the style of your wedding is entirely up to you. We have the perfect space and offering for each.

A stunning walkway will lead you to one of many beautiful and exclusive dining rooms which have been carefully tailored to your requirements to ensure an unforgettable experience as it should be for you and your guests.

One of ely’s greatest attractions is the great relationship they have with their food and wines. All of our food is fresh, Irish and organic wherever possible.

Our organic beef is sourced directly from co-owner Erik Robson’s father’s farm in the Burren, Co Clare. All our organic lamb is from the neighbours next-door, McCormack’s farm, which may be better known as the parochial house from comedy series, Father Ted!

Coupled with this, ely bar & brasserie’s cellars host an impressive selection of over 400 carefully chosen wines from around the world and our expert sommelier will ensure a wide range of wines are available to fit all tastes and budgets.

A wedding planner will be with you at all stages throughout the run-up to the big day, ensuring your wedding is as you truly want it. They will get to know you personally, intuitively assess your tastes and help you to make the big decisions so that you can relax and get ready for your beautiful day. A huge amount of wedding knowledge will be at your disposal, including recommendations for photographers, florists, bands, etc.

Get in touch to talk through your requirements, and to come in and see our lovely venue for yourself!

Wonderful Day

We are just en route home from our honeymoon and thinking about what a wonderful day we had celebrating at Ely

We have been flooded with compliments for your restaurant, the standard of the food and high level of service - no complaints at all

My bridesmaid kept it from me on the day but I understand you did an excellent job rescuing our wedding cake after a messy delivery!!

Thank you so much for making the day run so smoothly for us.
