I've been here on a number of occasions. You are welcomed into a lovely environment by friendly and helpful staff. There is a selection of pastries, bars and energy balls available. The coffee is phenomenal and I wouldn't be too keen on coffee normally. Highly recommend a visit if you're around Blackrock.

I sometimes treat myself to a sandwich for lunch here or drop in with a colleague for a morning coffee occasionally. The premises are small but the space is well used. There is a reasonable selection of sandwiches and salads in the fridge. These are pricier than in most of the nearby outlets so I treat myself only rarely. Plus... More

I love this place. The Dublin coffee market is oversaturated with starbucks and costas... so when you get a good coffee these days, you really know it. Bear's coffee is really deep and intense, and the baristas are experts. They also offer lots if paleo snacks and treats.. the energy balls are my fave!

Meeting some friends in Blackrock and decided on Bear Market Coffee as we had heard so much about it. We certainly did not think you could get a coffee of such high quality in Ireland, it was so good we had a second. The atmosphere is laid back with a really good mix of clientele business people, students, plenty of... More

After recently moving back from Melbourne and trying many coffees around the city I was disappointed that they were all generally quite bad. I got a recommendation of Bear Market and was absolutely delighted with the smooth flavour. I am delighted I am only a 5 minute walk from here

This place is a must visit. I come to this coffee shop on a regular basis with my boyfriend and we both absolutely adore it. I must say their cappuccinos are deliciously smooth, very hard to beat. We sometimes opt for the guest blend coffee which is €1 dearer but always worth a try as it's nice to change things... More

My friends and I meet at Bear Market most weekends. It's the best coffee south of Dublin, in what is probably the nicest town in Dublin - Blackrock. Get your coffee "for here" in their cool drink-in, Bear Market mugs. If the cafe could improve one thing, it would be an incentive to avoid paper cups - a drink in... More

Went for a quick coffee, then I relaxed . I only drink decaf ( migraine issues) . And most places for some reason ( I suspect not giving me decaf) I still get the shakes and a migraine half an hour later but not here. I drank a delicious coffee and felt great. Had a sneaky couple of chocolates that... More

Stopped in here in search of a coconut latte the morning after the superbowl but they were all out of cocnut milk so a cappucino it was. Great selection of healthy snacks to go with tasty coffee. Not to be missed:

I was so looking forward to a good coffee the wet and windy morning I arrived at Bear Market, but unfortunately I was disappointed. Coffee was served in a large paper mug - no option of a proper cup was offered even though I was staying put to drink it. Then the coffee served was watery and not at all... More
