Riggers D.8 is a casual neighbourhood eatery on bustling Emmet Road, nestled between Inchicore and Kilmainham in the heart of Dublin 8.


Riggers D.8 is so-called after owner and chef Shane Rigney or Riggers to all but his parents. Shane started his food business, Riggers Recipes in 2013 providing catering solutions for at-home parties, small private functions and eventually contracting to other cafes and small restaurants. He sold a range of high-end ready meals, sauces and condiments through an online platform and through small grocers and establishments around the Dublin area until 2017.

An old school brick and mortar business with his own kitchen was the next step and Riggers D.8 opened in April 2018 focusing on providing easy, casual, contemporary food with subtle international influences to the cool kids of our little corner of Dublin 8 and beyond.

We specialize in Breakfast, Lunch & a cracking weekend Brunch and have a beautiful new wine list.
