Sundays give us the chance to adventure near and far with our fur babies, finding good coffee along the way.
Life is too short to not indulge in simple pleasures like enjoying a coffee with your dog so we have scouted out the best dog cafes in Dublin with the help of some wonderful dog café voyagers.
Bear Mrkt Café
Based in Pawfit’s home town, Blackrock, this place has stolen the hearts of many Blackrockians, with their all-round experience.
The atmosphere here caters for all breeds of coffee fan.
You’ll see folks rocking up in business suits, with school books and many craving a coffee and catch up with a friend, but what we’re concerned with is the steady supply of puppies making their way through the old-school doors of Bear Mrkt café each day.
Bear also feature a charming outside coffee garden, best for the summer months.
They’re pretty up to date with their social media game so if you tag them in an Instagram story or post they may just feature your coffee or dog on their page!
They also have locations at the IFSC, on Pembroke Street Lower, near St Stephen’s Green and on South Great George’s Street.
Cafe du Journal
Our Second, and neighbourly located café in Monkstown is next
This dog-friendly cafe that sits tucked away beside the coast is in a quiet and what I would describe as, slow paced suburban village, making for a nice atmosphere.
The café’s reviews in relation to food differ from excellent to otherwise so for an award winning barista coffee and chill with your pupster, this place should hit the spot, and with a seaside stroll merely minutes away what have you got to lose?
Located a few stones throws further out, the Urbanity café in Smithfield boasts raving reviews in areas of brunch food, staff, atmosphere and coffee!
As a dog friendly café who can offer all of this, we ought to justify the trip out!
Their menu, or rather, their reviews weigh heavily on the brown sugar sweet potato waffles, which come with blueberry mascarpone, maple pecans, salted chocolate caramel and red currants with an option of equally fancy titled bacon.
The space itself is modern and spacious, perfect for a brunch date or chipping away at some work in a creative atmosphere.
The Fumbally is not only a family favourite of dog owners, it is also in the top 10 of 259 quick bites in Dublin.
The café come restaurant is located in Dublin 8, near St Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin City Centre.
The Fumbally offers visitors an abundance of healthy choices, large portions and a relaxing space for pup and parent alike.
The menu features reasonably prices food options, highlighted in the reviews of The Fumbally café is the eggs and breakfast in general, with some pretty satisfying lunch options too.
Great coffee, good food and a dog filled atmosphere, all I can say is, God is good.
The Dog House Blues Tea Room
Grab a seat on the Dart with your pooch and enjoy the scenic route along the coast as you make your way to this little hidden gem in Howth.
Offering coffee, food and drinks, there doesn’t seem a time not suited for a visit to The Dog House.
Although hopefully this visit doesn’t prompt confusion at a later time, should your boyfriend act up and think he’s just been sentenced to a burger and chips in a cute café filled with dogs.
With its’ quirky vibe and equally quirky design, this seems a recipe for a good time.
Side note : The wood fire pizzas here look incredible.
