Recommended by my hotel concierge. We stopped here for breakfast. Satisfactory coffee, but great tea. I recommend the Gold Blend Tea, but don’t bother buying the packaged teas at the store. It’s sold everywhere in the city.

We attempted to have lunch here but it was so crowded that we decided to go elsewhere. Later that day we noticed that we would be able to have some dessert and coffee without waiting as there was no one in line. That was when we found out just how huge the place is. We would have had a table... More

The seafood chowder is the best I've tried in the world and served with nice local bread. It gets busy from time to time but we didn't wait long for a table

We stopped here a couple of times during our break in Dublin. Our first visit we had lunch which was very good and the waiting staff were super attentive and very quick. Second visit for an afternoon snack and drinks, again the service was exemplary and the quality of produce was good.

We ate at Bewleys a couple of times during our long weekend in Dublin as it was conveniently close by our hotel and as we'd enjoyed our meals there on a previous visit. In the space of three years though we noticed a huge difference in the standard of the staff (some of whom can barely speak English), the decor... More

Breakfast, pastry, coffee, dessert and lunch can be hit and miss. Good location on Grafton St to meet up . There can be very long lines for a table at the weekends. Here are some views on the various dishes we had over time: Porridge can be very nice. The brownie was hard and crumbly (possibly over heated). Their Sencha... More

In this summer,I had visited in Dublin Ireland.I try to drink the IRISH COFFEE.It was my first experience.It was very delicious and tasty with brandy.Then I had been going to the cafe every night,because It was very calm and moody in the cafe. Let's go to the Grafton Street!!
