About Us

The Hungry Duck is a neighbourhood eatery perched on the corner of Kimmage Road West and Whitehall Road West. This local eatery really is as local as it gets with owner and chef de patron Aidan Noctor growing up a mere stone’s throw from the bistro’s front door. In January 2016 Aidan along with his wife television producer Lesley O’Connor opened the doors to the Hungry Duck with a firm focus on local artisan produce resulting in interesting innovative dishes across a breakfast, lunch, weekend brunch menus. Recently The Hungry Duck introduced an a la carte Friday evening dinner menu accompanied by live jazz music.


Having spent almost two decades working in some of the top kitchens from Dunbrody House with Kevin Dundon to Odessa, Il Segreto and the Shelbourne, Aidan is committed to using his vast culinary experience to create memorable dishes in this neighbourhood eatery. With favourable write-ups in both the Irish Times and The Sunday Independent amongst others the measure of success at the Hungry Duck is the enjoyment of loyal local client base for whom the Hungry Duck was established. Across busy weekend brunch and throughout the week Aidan & the team are committed to ensuring a warm welcome and interesting dishes are always on the menu at the Hungry Duck.
