They added: "A big thank you to everyone who supported us please stay tuned for future updates."

Social media users were sad to hear of the news, with many of them expressing sympathy over the closure and wishing them well. One person commented: "Sorry to hear that best of luck in the future."

A second said: "Nooo. Maybe move towards Tallaght." A third person added: "Sorry to hear, folks. Loved your pulled port+brisket. Good look with the next endeavour."

Smokin Bones has also reassured their loyal followers that their other locations at Castle Market, Temple Bar, and Swords remain open for business.

The news follows as several other popular eateries announcing their departure from Dublin’s food scene in recent weeks. Earlier this week, the owners of Gotham South in Stillorgan issued a heartbreaking statement saying the pandemic "dealt a massive blow" to the restaurant which has resulted in them having to make the difficult decision of closing.

The Stillorgan eatery will be closing its doors at least for the time being after 13 years in business.
