Food is fresh with a great selection of pastries, its a large dining space with old world feel, quite dark inside but it adds to the character . Service is great and reasonably priced.

No visit to Grafton Street is complete without having a cuppa' at Bewleys. The original tea rooms of Dublin, it still has the atmosphere and is perfectly located in the middle of the street.

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.
