"You get to meet people from all walks of life."
My mum and I had a fantastic time last night. We kept saying how unique of an experience it is: the combination of fine dining with a communal atmosphere, meaning you get to meet people from all walks of life. Every single thing we ate was fantastically cooked and perfectly balanced. Such attention to detail.

"The food was absolutely incredible."
I would highly recommend the Pop-Up Restaurant. The food was absolutely incredible.
These students made dishes that would be well received in any of the top restaurants in Dublin. Brilliantly done!

Frequently asked questions
- What if I have a food allergy or dietary restrictions?
So as long as it has been made clear at the time of booking, we should be able to accommodate your dietary needs with a delicious adjustment (a note can easily be included when you book online). Be sure to highlight if your food allergy is life threatening and if it is, you must bring an Epi-pen. Please also note that we are a busy school environment and the allergin(s) you are affected by may have been handled at some point previous to your arrival and there is always the risk of cross-contamination.
- What if I can't make it to a course or dining event that I've booked?
Note that if you cannot make an Evening Course, 1 Day Course or Pop Up Restaurant Night that you have booked, you are more than welcome to send someone in your place (16 years or older). There's no extra cost for this so just give us a buzz and let us know who to expect and we'll take good care of them. If this can't be arranged and you need to cancel your place, please take a look at our Terms and Conditions to see what rules apply to you. Please note that if you are booked on as a Cook's Club Member, the membership is non-transferrable and therefore your place on the class is non-transferrable. One Week Courses are reserved for the individual booked onto the course (e.g., if you aren't able to attend certain days, someone else cannot be sent in your place on those days). For our full Terms & Conditions, go to https://dublincookeryschool.ie/terms.
- What is parking like in the area?
There is plenty of free parking along the curb outside the school around the corner on Sweetmans Avenue or Carysfort Avenue. There are also a few parking spaces available right outside the school that are free on both weekday evenings (after 7PM) and weekends (all day). For daytime parking during the work week, the cost is €5 for the full day. Please resist from parking outside the houses on Brookfield Terrace and Brookfield Place. Please also don't park on the grass verges opposite the school or on the double yellow lines in the area. For more info, go to https://dublincookeryschool.ie/find-us.
