As a passionate dog lover, I was happy to find out about a dog friendly cafe named Pupp in Dublin. This establishment opened their doors to the public about a year ago, but is quickly gaining in popularity. The great concept and many positive reviews made us curious about Pupp, so we decided to give it a go.
Some restaurants and cafes in Dublin define themselves as a ‘dog-friendly’ places just by placing a water bowl in front of their doors, so you never really know what to expect when visiting such a place. The Dog Friendly Pupp Cafe is different though. Its doors are widely open for all the waggy tails and their humans.
Got caught in the rain when walking your dog somewhere around? No worries, pop in and have a nice cup of herbal tea or hot coffee while your doggie enjoys one of the tasty dog treats. And what a great idea – towels for pups are provided.
Location Of Dog friendly Cafe Dublin: Pupp Cafe
Pupp cafe is located on 37 Clanbrassil Street lower in Dublin 8, about 10 minutes walking distance from St. Patrick’s cathedral. Parking can be tricky as Clanbrassil Street is busy but there are a lot of small streets around where it shouldn’t be a problem.
Ambience Of Pupp Cafe
The first thing we got when we walked in was a friendly smile from the girl approaching us and pointing us to our table. After placing our order, we had a chance to look around. The place is small but cosy and warm, with lots of charming details such as tea cup light shades and little knitted teapot hats. The most attractive thing about here is the very friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
Despite the fact that canine companions are free to come in, the place is incredibly clean and tidy. There is also a boutique which makes up a part of the cafe and offers a wide range of pet accessories such as collars, leads, stylish bandanas, toys and treats to mention just few. Of course, there are a couple of rules to follow such as all dogs must be kept on the lead close to their owners and also toilet trained.
Menu/Food Of Pupp Cafe
The menu offers a nice variety of pastries, hot and cold food and homemade cakes as well as good selection of cold and hot drinks. It also contains vegetarian and vegan options. At Pupp they didn’t forget about the four-legged ones either. The Doggy menu offers some natural healthy treats, doggy herbal tea, a frozen kong with peanut butter and bacon and even non-alcoholic dog beer. We ordered camomile and mint tea and couldn’t resist the Guinness and chocolate cake with caramel frosting.
The teas arrived very quickly as the cafe wasn’t busy when we came in. After a little while we got our cake too. It was very tasty, well presented and it’s definitely worth trying. This time we didn’t come with our dog so I can’t say anything about the Doggy menu but I’m sure our Nina would enjoy one of the doggie treats.
Review of Dog Friendly Cafe: Pupp Cafe, Dublin
This Pupp Cafe is definitely worth visiting whether you are accompanied by your four-legged friend or not. At Pupp they don’t consider themselves to be a dog cafe. They like to call themselves a cafe for people who like good food, good coffee and good company. I’d happily spend my day here enjoying the great atmosphere. I can’t wait to bring my dog here next time and I’m hoping for more places like this in Dublin in the near future.
