Exit the Arthur Cafe, it’s time to take a real break out of Griffith College!
As a new international student, I know that we are not expert of the ‘place to go’ in the city and we often choose the facility and the rapidity. But you will see, after a long day, you will just expect to be waited on hand and foot. I have a solution! Do you know that Dublin 8 offers really nice places for the brunch and permit you to disconnect a bit from the studies. I propose you today, three adress, with very affordable prices and only ten minutes by walking from the College !
Bibi’s Cafe, 14A Emorville Ave, Wood Quay, Dublin 8
Open from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday and from 10am to 5pm, Saturday to Sunday
Bibi’s was my first Brunch Cafe whem I arrived in Dublin in September before the lectures begin and I was happy to hear that my College is just at 8 minutes by walking (As I want to convince you to try, I just check the time on Google Maps ;). The style of the Cafe is lovely with rustic and floral decorations, garden table with the kitchen is “discovery”. You feel directly appease! Their menu is just as lovely: tart, poached eggs, French toast, juices! Little extra: we love the tableware !
The Fumbally Cafe, Fumbally Lane, Dublin 8
Open from 8pm to 5pm, Tuesday – Friday , from 10 am to 5pm and Wesnesday Dinners, from 7 to 9.30 pm
The coolest atmosphere and concept of my selection! You just arrived in this huge not common place without any paint, boards, exposed beams and a piano! The concept : after making the queue (the game worth the candle!) to order, you can sit where there is place it’s mean you can be next to some people that you don’t know, it’s like a familiar atmosphere you share big tables or simply seat in a big sofa for a coffee. You also have place to work with your computer! Like Bib’s café, you have healthy and fresh plates: granola, carrot cake, falafel, avocado toast…prices are really affordable! Little extra : Wednesday dinners, each weeks, the Fumblly Cafe focus on one specific dish or theme choose by the Chef.
Noshington Cafe, 186 S Circular Rd, Merchants Quay, Dublin 8
Open from 8.30 am -to 7 pm on weekdays and from 10 am to 6 pm on weekends
Just cross the street and you will be arrived! The Café is colourful, retro with photograph of Irish celebrities on the wall and a little garden at the back: a happy place! The menu is changing every week and It is always delicious and very tasty. I remember trying once Smoked Haddock Croquettes, original isn’t it? The most difficult will certainly to know what to choose! I warn you, you will certainly cross your teacher ordering a coffee! Little extra : you can enjoy in summer (I hope!) the little private garden.
Test and approved by an international student! Please don’t ask me which one is my favourite 😉
