Peacock Alley was a restaurant housed in the Fitzwilliam Hotel at St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin, County Dublin, Ireland from 1999 to 2002. Before that, its location was on Baggot Street in South William Street.[1]

It was a fine dining restaurant that was awarded one Michelin star in 1998 and retained that rating until it closed in 2002.[2][3]

The head chef of Peacock Alley was Conrad Gallagher.

Kevin Thornton bought the Peacock Alley in 2002, after the Fitzwilliam Hotel had cancelled the lease with Gallagher.[4] He renamed the restaurant Thornton's Restaurant.
