If you’re a caffeine addict, you probably already know exactly how long it takes to get to the closest coffee shop in your hometown. What about when you head to Dublin for that long-awaited vacation? Well, we have you covered. Dublin is a small capital city which means you’ll be able to walk between most of the attractions you want to visit. In between visits to the museums, castles, and parks, don’t forget to take a few quick stops inside some of these top-notch coffee shops to soak up the energy to get through your day.


One of the newer establishments in the city, here you’ll find an inviting atmosphere along with your cup of joe. You’ll be able to get any type of coffee you are looking for from standard black drip coffee to speciality blends and more. The prices are right at Kaph, as they are one of the cheaper cafés in the city. Don’t forget to pick up a snack here as well, since the pastries are well-loved among locals. Kaph is also centrally located in Dublin, so it’s a good area to search for hotels in Dublin.


Don’t expect a pristine environment when you walk into Vice. Instead, focus solely on the spectacular coffee this shop serves. They feature bean roasters from all over the continent, which means you’ll have a variety of choices to sate your caffeine lust. Vice even has some biscuits and sweets if you’re feeling a bit peckish.

Brother Hubbard

This café is the real deal, especially if you are a chocolate and coffee lover. Brownies are the name of the game at Brother Hubbard, and it’s almost a crime to have a coffee without trying one of their sinfully delicious chocolate creations, too.


Those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city should head out to Urban. Located in the suburbs and close to a park, this is the perfect café choice if you’re looking to mingle with the locals. Many Urban patrons take a walk in the park after enjoying a drink made by some of the best baristas in the country.


If you’re looking for a one stop shop, 3fe is your choice. First and foremost, they have coffee subscriptions for those who want freshly roasted coffee to take home on a regular basis. Those who want to learn more about coffee can take one of the café’s roasting or brewing classes. Since 3fe is owned by a former Irish barista champion, it’s no surprise that the café has some of the best coffee in the city, if not the country. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll be able to chat with the owner and learn about his award-winning history as a barista.

If you’re not up to walking in the elements while in Dublin, consider getting a ticket for the hop on hop off tour bus. Not only will you have easy access to many of these cafés and the major city attractions, but you’ll also be able to make the most of your time in Dublin.

    I am probably one of those oddballs, who doesn’t like coffee, but for those individuals who like coffee, this is a good resource.
