Best Brew

The renowned Bewley's coffee house on Grafton Street was opened by the Irish first family of beverages, the Bewley's, in 1927. It's a tourist hotspot, but the coffee is still really good.

In its earlier life, the building was a grammar school. Refurbished by Ernest Bewley with eccentric taste, the style reflects a range of influences from French cafes to the tomb of Tutankhamen. Hand-crafted stained glass windows dominate the interior.

Bewley's has served coffee to some of the greatest Dubliners, with James Joyce, Samuel Beckett and Sean O'Casey being just a few of them.

Upstairs, there's a nice little theatre space that sometimes holds intimate gigs, so it's worth checking out what's going on there.
