About Slevin's

Located in the heart of the wonderful village of Dunboyne we can trace a history of hospitality and licence trade on the site of Slevin’s back to the late 19th century.
We are very proud to continue this tradition and take the continuous 130 years of food and drink service very seriously.
Recently bought by new owners, Slevin’s has undergone a major refurbishment both inside and outside in its extensive Garden Bar. 

Slevin’s of Dunboyne is just a short drive from some of the larger population areas within Kildare, Meath, and west Dublin. So, if you live or work in or around Maynooth, Clonee, Ratoath, Blanchardstown, or Castleknock, why not call in for a pint or sample a dish from our food menu.

Dining at Slevins

To accommodate more of our increasingly loyal costomers from Wed 22nd March will only be taking bookings for tables of 8 or more people. 

We will now be operating on a walk in basis for all other tables so come on in and we’ll look after you as quickly as possible.

For large table or function enquiries please call 016941140 or email [email protected]

Food was nice, probably better than average pub food but there was no atmosphere, very few people around so we left after a few hours. It was really cold which makes for uncomfortable dining, we moved outdoors to sit under a heater after our meal as it was warmer out there. Staff were superb, friendly and efficient. Our car was locked into the car park which apparently is now a staff only carpark so maybe a sign to indicate this would be a good idea.
Great staff, great service, great food. Cannot complain.

Really great food and service and look forward to going back again 👍
I've ordered the spinach salad no bacon twice, its really lovely. Have found its best to order starters and mains together the gap between courses is too long. Staff are friendly but you have to look for them if you need anything and to order a drink. We enjoy it overall just a pity server's don't check in after for drinks.
Welcoming staff, spotlessly clean premises. Quick midweek dinner. Very generous portions. Brie starter delicious and very large potion. Prawns delicious too. Had ribs and salad with buttermilk chicken for main courses and both generous portions, well presented and so tasty. Will be back!!
Very poor choice of the veg noodles made by me . I was asked if I wanted prawns or chicken and I said chicken . The chicken was a southern fried fillet not expected with stir fry !!! The noodles were plenty but very few veg not good value and only taste was soya sauce . Also didn’t realize there was a charge for chicken so €21 for poor stir fry .Fourth time eating here and each time has gone downhill and not up . Small menu but should be executed very well . I hope you get to a nice standard as the village needs a venue that has good food even if it is pub standard .my partner had fish and chips for the third time and it was ok but nothing like the standard a few weeks ago .Possibly haddock is out of season ?!?
Probably caught them at a bad time. Waited a very long time for the food to arrive. When it did we were told they're down a chief that's why it took so long. The quality of the food didn't match my previous visits. They seem to struggle when it gets a little busy.
Great service, great good, beautiful place. Will definitely be back!

Lovely service, the staff were so nice, fab food we will be back again for sure 👍
Great food and great service, Slevins is a lovely addition to Dunboyne Village.


We booked Slevins on an exclusive basis for a large group on the recommendation of a local events company. We were welcomed like old friends, looked after like family and fed like kings and queens. The menu was uncomplicated pub grub but of such quality that attendees are still talking about it (we can’t find chicken wings anywhere near as good) and the drink selection spot on. A couple of unexpected little touches really set them apart and the service was everything we needed and nothing we didn’t. I can’t wait to return and would recommend them all day long. Thanks team!

Had my first visit here this evening, and we all very impressed. The welcoming staff, decor, atmosphere, food and service were of an excellent standard. Michelle is so lovely, helpful and friendly. Definitely be returning very soon, a very nice village pub that is a popular spot. Thank you all so very much. Keep up the amazing work.

What an amazing place. Food was really nice. Specially the spicey wings. But what stands out even more is the service. Staff are super friendly and eager to help. Even when not sure about something happy to go and ask instead of making something up which I absolutely love. Definitely will be back and a place everyone should go to at least once

Wandering in from from off the street and met with kind and very friendly staff, Willow was our server and knocked it out of the park!!! AAA+++. Larger inside from what it looks like. Atmosphere is awesome and decor traditional pub and upper class dining combined. We had six in our party and were able to be accommodated with a comfortable seating in the back area. Wide variety of drinks and food for all to enjoy. Had the seafood chowder and it is the best I have ever eaten. And being from Florida I know seafood. Everything our table had was spectacular. From the seafood to the 21 day dry aged steak completely fantastic! From the crunchy fried Brie to the Seafood Linguine, just spectacular. Well done and made our first night visit one for the memories. Recommend for anyone who wants a great time. Thanks
