Bewley's Cafe is situated in the heart of Dublin on the bustling pedestrian Grafton street. It is a well known Dublin landmark and has been in operation for almost 100 years. Following a recent three year refurbishment, there are many unique elements of the original café which have been fully restored including the iconic Harry Clarke windows and ten open fireplaces. The Egyptian-motif façades on the exterior were inspired by the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by British explorers. The Bewley family were Quakers who originated in Cumberland and moved to Ireland in the 17th century.  The flagship Grafton Street café was opened by Ernest Bewley in 1927. The Grafton Street building had once housed Whyte's Academy, a school whose pupils included the Duke of Wellington and Robert Emmet.
