Fallon & Byrne is a business for food lovers by food lovers. When we put pen to paper in 2005 to write the business plan, we stated simply that our mission was “to open a great food shop and restaurant”. No more and no less. We wanted to sell and serve great-tasting food made by people who cared, in an atmosphere free from the snobbery or pretentiousness that so often attaches to quality food.
Our Exchequer Street operation is housed in a heritage building and comprises an award-winning food hall, restaurant, wine cellar and function room. You can pop in for an espresso, grab a rib roast for Sunday lunch, have a romantic glass of champagne for two or even stay and get married!
In 2014 we opened a restaurant, café & deli in the renovated Victorian tea rooms in the People's Park. In early 2017 the business will be expanding further with a new large retail space opening in Rathmines.
We live by our brand values of integrity, ambition, respect, positivity, pride and passion. At the heart of the business lies an unflinching passion for great food, and a genuine commitment to putting the very best on the shelves of our food hall and the plates of our restaurants.
We aspire to be courteous and thoughtful at all times, with a sprinkling of humour. We want Fallon & Byrne to be a place that our staff love to be, as much as our customers.
Everyone who works in Fallon & Byrne has been hand-picked for their friendly, open disposition and positive outlook. We are a team of (almost fanatical) food lovers who have worked hard to create a special environment for our customers.
Our mission is simple: “To be the country’s favourite food destination, sharing our love of all things delicious in a magical setting with five-star service”. We are always on the lookout for talented individuals to join us on that mission.
“Your staff’s honesty and friendliness are the reason I do not have enough good things to say about Fallon & Byrne, it is a pleasure to shop there.”
“I have to compliment your wine experts in your wine cellar for their patience and expertise. One of your staff members there had kindly let me taste before buying which has allowed me to find the exact wine I need for any occasion. The same can be said for your butchers, they have without even asking explained each and every cut in a witty manner when I look puzzled at the choice available.”
“Even when it is busy you are not made to feel like you need to rush your order and they will always take their time on each and every person. This is hard to come across in any service industry these days.”
“Have to say. Staff at Fallon & Byrne are outstanding. Always made feel delighted when I’m here.”
“Can I give you 7 stars ?! For the fantastic veg massaman curry, the ridiculous range of tea you offer, the decor, the fairy lights and most of all for hiring staff like Peadar & James who make me want to shop, eat and be served every day at your fine emporium. Finally, very thankful to Gabor who went the extra mile & got his phone charger for me. One of those extra stars goes to him and the other to you for donating all your tea/coffee profits in November to the Irish Red Cross to bring relief to the Philippines. F&B = 7 star Legends.”
“Firstly a really big thank you for the brilliant and highly professional service in the lead up to our event and on the night.

Also really big thank you to the lovely staff - everyone was really nice, efficient & helpful all night.”
