Dublin coffee shops

I had a flying visit to Dublin recently; I had a couple of spare hours when I managed to find myself two decent cups of coffee.  I thought them good enough to merit writing up a little  summary, like I did after my New York trip.

Update: after a second visit to Dublin I’ve been able to  update this post with another coffee shop, The Art of Coffee.


31 Drury Street (map)

I came across this one first while walking around randomly in the city centre, and straight away realised it would be good.  And I wasn’t wrong.  Coffee perfectly tasty, nicely-done latte art.  The whole place very carefully designed  Playing some good music too, which I’d forgotten about, but their website specifically mentions this, so it must be one of their USPs.

Coffee Angel PSL

27 Pembroke Street Lower (map)

I read about Coffee Angel in the Aer Lingus in-flight magazine on the way over (which also mentions Prufrock and Talkhouse in the same section), and knew I should try and find it.  And I wasn’t disappointed.  Unusually they don’t have a drinks menu at all; instead they’ll make whatever you want how you want it (not sure how they let you know of their prices though).  Also only the second coffee shop I’ve seen who have their latitude and longitude listed on their website (after Four Corners).
