Where to Eat in Dublin with Your Dog

We've been getting requests for this one for a while, and as we're not members of the dog owner club, we thought we'd enlist Taurean Coughlan from Two Boys Brew/TAUR.ie, parent to Milo the beagle and Dublin coffee shop expert (and owner) to put it together for us.

There really is nothing better than finding a new place in the city to grab a coffee, a spot of brunch or to just hang out with your friends. With the proliferation of new places opening up in Dublin at the moment, it’s hard not to find somewhere you’ve never tried. But what happens when like us two boys, you get yourself a new puppy and you’re left wondering where can we go now? Since Milo’s arrival, it’s been great to have been welcomed into so many of the places we love to visit, with the little lady. Below is just a small selection of some of the places we like to hit up during our days off and whether your fury friend is small, big or gigantic – you can be rest assured you’ll all be looked after extremely well.

1. Two Boys Brew

Of course, she loves a trip to TBB to say hello to the team and chill while we grab a bite to eat. For the best part of putting down roots in Phibsborough, we have been dog friendly and it’s been great. We have so many customers who love to take their pup with them when going for a coffee or food and we love to see them!

2. Lilliput Stores

Living in Stoneybatter, the Lilliput Stores is a godsend to those who love their food in this part of the city. Early morning walks with Milo usually begin with a trip there to grab a coffee and a small treat sometimes. These guys use Ariosa Coffee who are a wonderful roastery based in Ashbourne, Co. Meath. Their coffee packs a real punch and is just the thing needed before heading to the Phoenix Park for that long walk. As well a full deli offering, the store stocks everything from breads, cheeses, fresh fruit and vegetables and the best olive oil and balsamic vinegar you’ll find.

3. The Fumbally

Milo sure likes to walk, so it’s not unusual for us to make our way over to the other side of the city most weekends. The Fumbally is a perfect spot for us to visit as it’s so big that you can grab yourself a space in the corner and be confident that you’re not going to annoy anyone too close to you. We like to grab some coffees and lunch while Milo takes a well-deserved nap on one of the comfy sofas. That nap mightn’t last long, so we enjoy it while we can.

4. Proper Order Coffee Co.

Proper Order Coffee Co. are just down the road from where we live in Smithfield so we visit them a few times a week. Milo’s been visiting Niall, Ali and the team there since she was tiny and it’s just a lovely place to relax during your morning coffee. They do a really nice selection of pastries and breads from Bread 41 throughout the week and don’t be surprised to see Milo nibbling away on a bit of a morning bun – she’s got a bit of a sweet tooth like her dads.
