This is the Bewley's on Grafton St. The sign at the entrance offers an apology, and states that they will re-open in autumn, which is very vague. Since coffee@Bewley's is supposed to be a must-do thing in Dublin, I tried Googling briefly but couldn't find another outlet. Anyway, we were pressed for time. However, on our way back to the...

So disappointing--Bewley's is hughly recommended and we found it while shopping on Grafton Street last week. Beware: the place is undergoing full renovation; next chance to enjoy the experience is in 2016; they need to adjust the information accordingly.

Breakfast for five on our first day in Dublin. After a short queue, we were seated next to a lovely roaring fire which added to the ambience in this beautiful period room. The Irish breakfast was delicious and the waitress was friendly. Enjoyed it so much we returned the next morning, this time we were seated upstairs overlooking the Grafton... More

Little piece of Dublin gone for 6 months. Too bad! The 140 staff were made redundant so check in after the Eur1 million revamp. Alternatives ? Checking them out one by one.

After a long day of traveling, I came straight to Bewley's for a snack and some coffee, and I had a very enjoyable experience. The food is refreshing and delicious and the workers are friendly. There's also a nice view of Grafton Street from the top patio.

Went to the Bewley's café when visiting Dublin for a day trip as it looked very nice and busy from the outside, so thought it would be amazing. Walked in around 11amish with my Mum and went upstairs, sat down and looked at the menu. Ordered mince pies, and a hot chocolate and Mum ordered a latte. The order finally... More

This is truly a landmark eatery in the middle of Dublin's Grafton Street, I have eaten in here many times, lovely stop off when you are shopping up this neck of the woods. Unfortunately it was closed for refurbishment last time I visited, but will open again for the summer season, so very soon, will be looking forward to going... More

I miss the "old" Bewley's before the renovation, but the new look and service are very good. it is a perfect spot for brunch or lunch , especially after a long transatlantic flight. Just remember you are in Ireland, take your time, enjoy your tea/coffee, any errors in service are quickly corrected. Relax and enjoy a piece of history.
