Bewley’s Grafton Street, one of Dublin’s most iconic and celebrated landmarks, has reopened its doors. Following a multi-million-euro refurbishment, the much-loved café has been restored to create a bigger, brighter and better-than- ever customer experience.
As well as serving the very best coffees and teas, many elements of the original café have been carefully restored including the Harry Clarke windows, the historic front façade of the café and the open fireplaces. There are also many new additions to the café including the complete refurbishment of Johnson’s Court and an expanded in-café bakery which allows visitors to see some of Europe’s finest pastry chefs and bakers create the unique and delicious treats on offer, including the beautiful Bewley’s Café Gourmand, Coffee Opera Cake and, original favourite, the Bewley’s Mary Cake.
“Bewley’s is the heart and the hearth of Dublin. There is a sense in which Dubliners behave like a large, sometimes unruly family; and walking into Bewley’s never fails to give me the feeling that I am stepping into a home… The atmosphere is full of a lovely rattling music made up of cups and chatter, gossip and laughter, watchful eyes and gadabout tongues.” – Brendan Kennelly
For over 175 years Bewley’s has had a special place in the hearts of Dubliners. Founded in 1840, Bewley’s is Ireland’s leading coffee and tea company. We’ve been perfecting the craft of tea and coffee making for many generations, from our humble beginnings in a little shop on Sycamore Alley in Dublin, Ireland, to the home and heart of our brand here in Bewley’s Grafton Street, and right through to our world-class coffee, roastery and tea blending facilities in North County Dublin, as well as in the United Kingdom and the United States.
Bewley’s Grafton Street is now open with space to accommodate for up to 500 customers.
