Bewley's Café

CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS


Established in 1840, Bewley's Café has a special place in the affection of Irish people. Bewleys on Grafton Street was always a great meeting place for everyone, whether native Dubliners or visitors to the capital 'up from the country'.


It changed hands amid much public debate in 2005 but, despite renovations, it has somehow retained its unique atmosphere together with some outstanding architectural features, notably the Harry Clarke stained glass windows.


Much of the seating area is now given over to a more modern café style, offering surprisingly international menus for such a venerable Dublin institution. However, the coffee shop at the front remains and, here in the heart of Dublin's main shopping area, it is one of the busiest traditional cafés serving breakfast, teas and coffees with a wide range of tasty home baked scones and pastries from their in-house bakery.


 

Seats 370. Open daily; Mon-Wed 8am-10pm, Thur-Sat 8am11pm, Sun 9am-10pm. Closed 25 Dec, Bank Hols. Amex, Diners, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
