History of the Guinea Pig Fish Restaurant

 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 (Chef de Cuisine) 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.

   What attracts our customers is the timeless atmosphere and consistent good food prepared by our Chef and his kitchen team and equally the courteous service, supervised by Kevin O’Gorman.

   Jérôme Fernandes (Chef de Cuisine) has just recently, November 2017, signed for the purchase of the Guinea Pig and is now in the process of building on the great work done by his predecessors. Please bear with us, as we will be renovating in the New Year.
