Our Review of Ashtons Gastropub

In the respectable residential south Dublin suburb of Clonskeagh, a lovely pub beckons. Ashtons Gastropub is a sister premises of Harte’s Bar and Grill in Kildare, owned by Ronan Kinsell, Paul Lenehan and Sean Forde. Ronan is in permanent residence, bringing his love of Irish produce and craft beers to a grateful clientele who appreciate the thought and care that goes into the offering here. 

Once inside the door, you’ll feel as welcome as the many regulars who use this place as their gourmet haunt. Ashtons is a real pub for real people.  If you fancy a pint and a nibble at the bar, a tasty bar menu is on offer. A casual dining space around the bar has more formal table seating. Downstairs, the cosy River Room, with views of the river to the rear and its own outdoor sun terrace, is the place to retreat for a catch up with friends or to bone up on sport or news on the flat screen TV. It also serves as a private room for group gatherings and is available to book any time of year. In summer, the outside at Ashtons buzzes with customers enjoying al fresco eating and drinking at outdoor tables to the front and an umbrella covered terrace to the side.  

At lunch, the Carvery Chef excels in his presentation of Irish roast meats and hot and cold dishes. A good carvery done right is one of the best pub food offerings in the land. You can be sure it’s done right here, with conscientious sourcing of produce behind the tempting display.  

Dishes at Ashtons Gastropub are inspired by local produce, making it a favourite among its Dublin regulars. The A la Carte menu steps up to the mark with seasonal offerings presented in smart style. You’ll find interesting artisan offerings like Kerry cured charcuterie, turf smoked salmon from a small smokehouse and Irish farmhouse cheeses. Hot mains are sassy in style. Artisan produce is named on the menu so you know exactly what you are getting. A house special is the 8 hour braised blade of beef – melt in the mouth and rich in flavour. This menu changes seasonally, and daily specials also reflect the time of year and what’s best and available on the day.  

Ronan is more than happy to answer questions as to where produce comes from. He’s also a big fan of Irish craft beers. No finer man to be asking about those! An Irish Craft Beer Taster Board includes four tumblers of artisan handcrafted brew. Ronan’s Rotation tap, which he looks after himself, is changed every two weeks, so you can sample his favourite Irish craft beers, on draught, in perfect condition. Gin lovers will delight by the Gin Board – a choice of three gins from the special list, plus a tonic of your preference. Perfect with the bar food nibbles.  Of course, you’ll also find wines to go with Ashtons' menu. The lucky people of Clonskeagh enjoy this pub very much. We think you will too.
