Sadly, Ireland’s most dog-friendly cafe, PUPP, on Clanbrasil St will close after 17th December. The space will reopen as a restaurant in 2018.

Owners Ella and Paul have issued the following statement 

We’re delighted with what Pupp has accomplished over the last few years, proving the concept both commercially and from a legislative perspective. As outlined back in October, it’s now time for us to take some time off to develop some other projects we have in the pipeline.”

The pair have achieved much in the two and half years running the cafe

Two and a half years ago we created Pupp to make Ireland more dog-friendly, and feel incredibly proud that it has driven such progress towards that goal. There are now over 20 dog-friendly food businesses in Dublin the Food Safety Authority have updated the law to officially permit dogs in restaurant and bars, and The Dog-Friendly Association of Ireland (our b2b organisation helping companies become dog-friendly) has grown to over 100 members including some of the largest employers in the country.

The good news is that PUPP’s online store will continue to sell a range of fun and exclusive dog accessories in Ireland. Their work for the Dog-Friendly Association will carry on as before. 

Dog owners will be happy to know that the nearby cafes Two Pups CoffeeGaillot et Grey and The Fumbally are also pet-friendly.
