A New Dog-Friendly Café Has Opened in Dublin

Katie Mythen-Lynch

The ‘dogs-in-pubs’ debacle gave everyone paws (fnar) for thought last month, but for one new business in Dublin 8, the publicity has been welcome. 

Pupp, a café and boutique for dog lovers, has opened its doors at 37 Clanbrassil Street Lower offering “a unique urban experience where you can relax and enjoy a range of healthy, organically sourced food options”.


As dog-friendly bar MVP announced they are to allow canine customers back on the premises after an apparent HSE crackdown led to a temporary ban, Dublin pet-owners are celebrating a victory after 7,000 people signed a petition against the anti-dog stance.

Posting on Facebook, the pub owners said:

“As of today, we are allowing dogs back on the premises of MVP. We have received no formal written information on why this was not allowed in the first place, nor have any other bars in Dublin been notified. So we are going to continue trading as we have done, and as countless bars & cafes across the country have done, for years. At the end of the day, we have a business, and jobs to protect, and lots of customers who are loyal and faithful to what we have built here.”

Meanwhile at Pupp, the coffees and pastries are go, with a range of brunch options to follow next week. We can’t wait to pup in.
