10 of the best coffee shops in Ireland

The first video in our Feast series is all about Dubln's coffee boom. We speak to the baristas, buinessmen and roasters behind the beans.


The Fumbally
Fumbally Lane, Dublin 8. thefumbally.ie
A village unto itself, the Fumbally’s devoted community of foodies, artists, musicians and cute babies keep it festive all year round.

Espresso Project
Main Street, Celbridge, Co Kildare. espressoproject.ie
As gourmet as it gets in the coffee game, this owner-operated bar doubles up as a creative space – and throws some chocolate buttons into its babycinos for good measure.

House Cafe
Cork Opera House, Emmet Place, Cork.
An amiable, artisanally-minded gem on the banks of the Lee, House spins modern European culinary influence with an Irish inflection.

Suas Coffee House
O’Connell Square, Ennis, Co Clare.
Tucked upstairs above the Carraig Donn shop, Suas is worth the ascent. Live music, book clubs and an ace apple pie set it apart.

Clement & Pekoe
50 South William Street, Dublin 2. clementandpekoe.com
Seemingly always running out of wall space for its caddies of loose leaf tea and fat bags of coffee, you could spend a month in C&P without drinking the same brew twice. Also supplies the brew bar at men’s boutique Indigo & Cloth.

Atlas Coffee
The Square, Maynooth, Co Kildare.
Formerly known as Boss Hogg, Atlas keeps the local students abreast of coffee trends. Weds fine brews with their culinary soulmates thanks to Wildflour Bakery, which keeps its pantries fresh.

33/34 Lower Grand Canal Street, Dublin 2. 3fe.com
Diversifying by adding a roastery, a kitchen and a merchandising arm to its already well-notched belt, 3FE is a beacon of the Irish coffee trade and keeps some of the country’s best cafés, such as Brother Hubbard, in stock.

Coffee Together
11-12 Richmond Street, Dublin 2.
As the maxim goes: Italians do it better. Running the day-shift in the Bernard Shaw pub, Together is the cheapest, closest fix you’ll get to fascino Italiano short of a Ryanair flight to Alghero. Try not to binge on the biscotti.

The Coffee Dispensary
Block T, Smithfield Square, Dublin 8.
Creative hub Block T is in part powered by its one-man coffee shop, providing hot espressos for the hot-desking class. With a rotating sandwich menu, the Coffee Dispensary does a whole lot with a little hatch.

27 Pembroke Street, Dublin 2/South Anne Street, Dublin 2. coffeeangel.com
Forerunners of the coffee boom, Coffee Angel stocks, educates and pontificates on the value of speciality coffee. It gets divine rights over exclusive blends and blesses the rest of the city with them.
