The Guinea Pig, fish restaurant, is situated in the medieval, heritage town of Dalkey, home to the rich and famous of sport, stage and screen. Walk along the coast to Bulloch and Coliemore Harbours, once the main ports of Dublin. Visit the Heritage Centre and soak up the atmosphere of this unique town, with its written history traced to 727AD. This restaurant was first opened in 1957; it was soon the established haunt of locals and the stars of screen filming in Ardmore Studios in Bray. Regular stars were John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, John Ford and Peter Ustinov. Mervyn Stewart and his family purchased the restaurant in 1978 and continued this tradition. Regulars included Hugh Leonard, Maeve Binchy, Enya, Lisa Stanfield, Bono, The Edge, Liam Neeson, Sir Cliff Richard, Meryl Streep and many more. Jérôme Fernandes, French chef owner, has recently purchased the Guinea Pig restaurant, and is building on the good work of his predecessors. Jérôme plans to maintain the timeless atmosphere of the restaurant when updating the décor. Our customers are attracted to the classic dining experience of the Guinea Pig restaurant; the consistently good food prepared by our chef owner Jérôme, his kitchen team and equally the courteous service, supervised by Kevin O’Gorman our restaurant manager.
