Joels was originally built in 1991. In 1997, in a remarkable and record eleven-week period, it was completely demolished and reconstructed to provide an upgraded and enhanced environment for our guests.

Joels is the ultimate family restaurant. Conveniently located on the Naas road with plenty of free parking. You’ll love it here, because the kids love it here, we have colouring pencils and puzzles and special surprise visits from Leo the Lion, making every visit hassle-free for the whole family.

Joel’s menu is full of mouth-watering dishes to suit everyone’s taste. We offer a full bar and wine menu along with specialty coffees.

We cater for a wide range of parties and special events, such as birthdays, communions and anniversaries. Call in today to see our brand new private function room.

Joels is an integral part of the Fitzgerald Group, who are specialists in the hospitality industry. Visit our group site www.louisfitzgerald.com to see our other premises.

    3 star ratingBirthday Dinner We had a family dinner in Joel’s, a private room was reserved for this occasion. The room had a lovely view of everyone outside having their cigarettes. Food was nice. Service was good.

    5 star rating10/10 It was great to be back at Joels for dinner last night. My favourite dish being the turkey and ham did not disappoint and my husband opted for the special of the night which was the T bone steak 10/10. Cocktails also went down a treat, plenty to choose from. The staff are very professional in what they do. Regarding the covid 19 guidelines, Joels have the best policy in place compared to other places I have been.

  • 5 star ratingLove Joel's... Living close by, I have been going to Joel's as my absolute favourite restaurant for 30 yrs at least, long before it was a fancy hotel. I go with friends, as a couple and attended some family events and at least every couple of months if not more. The service is excellent, some of the wait staff are there a long time so that's a sign to me that it is considerate of its team. The food is just great, wide range of tastes catered for. Staples like Roast of the day, not only fancy dishes. Steak is always perfectly cooked. The layout caters perfectly for evening dining out as a couple, the ambiance and atmosphere and even the decor are just perfect. Lots of parking. Highly recommended for passerbys, couples, friend and families alike.

    Prices are very very reasonable. No waiting for a taxi in and out of town either and squashing into a table having waited ages on a seat.

    Favourite restaurant. Can't wait to get back after lockdown. Will be there this week with luck.

    Keep up the excellent work.

    1 star ratingSo so rude I'm not 1 to normal leave a bad review for service workers, but I have never been so disrespect before either. I called to make a reservation for 15 people, chance my arm that they could seat us all, was talking to a lovely woman who told me that there was no reservation been taken until 9pm that it could be a half an hour wait but they can set us no problem. We arrive and was meet with a very rude small man who told me that is name was Joel, he told us that there would be a hour wait this would have been no problem as we understand that we are a large group but he was so rude in his attitude speaking down to us. I tried to explain that I was speaking to a lady on the phone who said they would be able to seat us he kept speaking over me and had he had a girl tilt the reservation book towards me and here. I would have emailed the restaurant itself but couldn't get an email address.
