Customers flock to Grafton Street as Bewley’s Café reopens its doors

Dublin's iconic Bewley's Café has reopened to the public for the first time since February 2015.

The much-loved eatery closed it's doors to make way for a €12 million revamp, and while it was originally thought the renovations would only take six months, the project was later extended.

The newly refurbished establishment, which has the capacity to cater for up to 500 diners, will also play host to a new chocolate factory and bakery.

According to the Bewley's website, many elements of the original café have been carefully restored including the building's exterior and the stained glass windows designed by Harry Clarke.

Once described as "the heart and the hearth of Dublin" by Irish poet, Brendan Kennelly, the legendary café, is popular with locals and tourists alike.

Eager customers were welcomed into the premises on Grafton Street at 11am this morning as staff called on passersby to come in and enjoy all the unique and delicious treats on offer.

Bewley's will open from 11am-5pm today (Wednesday, November 1), and from 7am-9pm Mon-Sun, going forward.
