Kim Chi Hop house Front Door

Welcome To
Kimchi Hophouse

Kimchi Hop House is a fun combo of Traditional Korean Restaurant and Irish Pub. We are proud to say that we are the oldest Korean restaurant in Dublin. Our local family enjoys their fresh pint of Guinness or Soju cocktail here on a daily basis and our friends from afar love visiting us in our little piece of Korea in Dublin.

We would love for you to try our Authentic Bibimbap – your choice of marinated beef, fish, or tofu, an assortment of pickled veg, topped with an egg, served over purple rice in a piping-hot stone “dolsot” bowl. Another of our “must-trys” is Kimchi Zigae. It is a delicious stew with spicy pickled cabbage, vegetables, your choice of pork or tofu, and plenty of Korean red chilli flakes, served in a sizzling stone bowl. So come join us for some great food, drinks, and Irish fun!!

What They Say

Reviews & Testimonials

Unbelievable food and so many vegan options. The Kim chi is, as you can imagine, phenomenal and they pour a great Guinness which we were impressed with. Service was also exceptional, such lovely staff. Cannot wait to go back!

This place is an absolute gem. The quality of the food is always superb. Presentation is fantastic and then the taste is second to none. You can order anything off the menu and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Love it! Soy potato roll is a winner for any crisp butty fans out there too by the way!

One of the best restaurants in Dublin. First the staff is excellent. The food is divine. Korean specialties at their best. The kimchi is grandiose. All of this happening in an old Irish pub called the Shakespeare. What a treat! Please please please go and taste the food. There is also a huge range of beers, wines and Korean alcohol. Enjoy!
