New Tearooms For St. Patrick’s Park

St. Patrick's Park

This summer new tearooms will be opening at St. Patrick’s Park, Dublin 8 and will be operated by Busyfeet & Coco Café. The new tearooms are part of a Dublin City Council Parks Division initiative to add to the experience of visitors visiting the city’s most popular tourist attractions. Dublin City Council also opened a similar facility, ‘Noshington’, in Harold’s Cross Park last summer and there are plans to open more tearooms in Herbert Park and St. Anne’s Park later this summer.

It is hoped the tearooms will gain popularity with tourists being located close to many of the area’s other tourist attractions like St. Patrick’s and Christchurch Cathedrals, Dublinia, City Hall and Dublin Castle.

Dublin’s Lord Mayor Christy Burke said at the official opening of the tearooms, “St. Patrick’s Park dates back to 1902 when the park was developed to replace poor quality housing as part of a wider improvement to the area. The park is very popular with locals and visitors. The tearooms, which are situated in a creatively re-used building, are sure to be a very popular addition. I congratulate Dublin City Council for their initiative to open tearooms in public parks where there is demand. I wish Busyfeet and Coco Café every success in operating it.”


Called St. Patrick’s Park Tearooms it will be located in a building at the eastern end of the park, near Bride Street to the rear of the Gate Lodge which used to be a council depot, but have since been redesigned by TAKA Architects.

The tearooms will open from 10am daily and Busyfeet & Coco Café, one of Dublin’s first Fairtrade Cafés with 15 years trading, will be supplying customers with products from local suppliers like Bretz Bakery and Sheridan’s Cheesemongers in the redesigned shed.

Dublin City Council has been doing a lot to make the experiences of visitors and tourists to Dublin more convenient, interesting and memorable. Next year promises to be a big year for Irish tourism with the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising and tearooms like Noshington and Busyfeet & Coco Café will be an excellent addition to the festivities and entertainment tourist will come to enjoy.
