Our Story '75 till the present

From humble beginnings…

Roly and Ronnie Saul are "on hands" restaurauteurs, who enjoy looking after people.

Roly started in Grafton Street in 1975 with the opening of Thunderbird cafe, in the 80's it was Trudi's in Dun Laoghaire, which became legendary.

Then in 1992 Roly opened the landmark Rolys Bistro in Ballsbridge and ran it for many years to international acclaim.

It was here he was joined by Ronnie and together they ran it followed by Roly@the Pavilion in Dun Laoghaire.


Where we are today?

Having sold on both restaurants, Roly and Ronnie opened Dundrum in 2008 and the locals refer to it as Roly's Dundrum.

The venue is a great mix of a restored 1730's house with modern glass extension overlooking the fountains. Always known for quality and value, we now add private rooms and off site catering for all occasions.

Reputation is built on personal service, quality, value and a great wine list.
