Bresson brings relaxed fine dining to the seaside village of Monkstown in a casual and comfortable setting since 2018 under the guidance of chef / patron Temple Garner

Classic French cuisine, great wine and customer satisfaction is paramount to the Bresson experience. We have taken great care and time to choose the best ingredients.


We want to showcase our amazing Irish ingredients from our all parts of our island, from our top quality Irish beef to our local seafood, whilst also highlighting some incredible produce from other countries also.


Welcome to our elegant first-floor private dining room, where unforgettable moments are brought to life. With its stylish ambiance and refined decor, our private dining room sets the stage for an enchanting wedding experience or special occasion.
