The Woollen Mills.

My last supper in Dublin was at a charming little restaurant at the foot of the Ha’Penny Bridge called The Woollen Mills.

When I arrived at The Woollen Mills, it was already fairly full. It had such a wonderful little buzz about the place.

I decided to try one of their fruity sodas and had the Strawberry and Basil Soda.

Super light and refreshing! The basil really helps cut the sweetness of the strawberry. Perfect for the 20C day that we had just had in Dublin!

After much hemming and hawing about what to have, I decided on the Ballinwillin wild Irish boar chilli, corn bread, Cuinneog sour cream, cheddar + avocado.

Wild Boar Chili, The Woollen Mills

I’m a huge fan of wild boar in most every fashion, so this was a pretty safe bet for me. However, the addition of avocado and lime was a bit out there. I must admit, it works really well. As a Southern girl, I’m pretty obsessed with corn bread. This was a bit dry and dense. Also, they served it cold. Which is just a bit weird. All in all, the chili was pretty great. It wasn’t super spicy, but it was jam-packed with flavour – only partially helped by the lime and avocado.

The service was good, and the food was super tasty. If you’re looking for a good, hearty supper, this is the place. The physical address of The Woollen Mills is 42 Lower Ormond Quay, Dublin 1. They are open until 11pm every night (except for Sundays, when they shut at 10:30pm).
