There are some great spots in Dublin for coffee, ice cream, chocolates, French macarons and more, while you explore the city:
Laduree Dublin: Located on the corner of Wicklow and S. William Streets, this branch of the famed Parisian patisserie is known for its wonderful macarons. You can also get coffee or enjoy afternoon tea. The salted caramel are my favorite. 1-3 S. William St.
Butler’s Chocolate Cafe, 24 Wicklow St.: I enjoyed this cafe for coffee and wonderful chocolates. You get one piece with each drink purchased! They have a number of locations throughout Dublin including train stations and the Dublin airport.
Kaph, at 31 Drury St., is a small, fun coffee bar.
Considered Cafe by Helen James is a great spot for tea, coffee and a light meal. 35/36 Drury St.
Powerscourt Center: This mixed use project has several fun cafes for coffee and a snack. Counter Culture, on the second floor of 59 S. William St., has a large menu of coffees, teas, juices, shakes, sandwiches, salads and brunch items. Plus beer, wine and cider. The Pepper Pot also features coffee drinks, tea, sweets plus sandwiches, bagels, salads and breakfast items.
Murphy’s Handmade in Dingle: This is a small ice cream shop with wonderful flavors. I loved the coffee ice cream made with a touch of Jameson’s Irish Whiskey. 27 Wicklow St.
