The rooftop restaurant, Jean-Georges at The Leinster, has been curated by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, marking his first foray into Ireland, and following in the footsteps of his restaurants in London, New York, Paris and Kyoto. Combining Irish classics with French and Southeast Asian flavors, all dishes at the restaurant incorporate locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. It also offers an extensive selection of wines and cocktails. The Collins Club offers drinks and light bites while a lively pianist plays on the baby grand. Guests can also enjoy DJ sets.

The Leinster is also home to The O’Dwyer event suite, perfect for private meetings and events, weddings and all kinds of celebrations. The suite can host between 10 to 100 people with dedicated F&B menus.
