1. In ten words or less, tell us why you love doing business in Dublin town.
Because it feels like you are in an urban haven where you constantly meet people you have things in common with.

Our neighbour on Capel Street, Brother Hubbard café.
3. If you could do one thing to improve Dublin, what would it be?
It would have more outdoor spaces with blankets, heaters, loungers… street coziness is what Dublin needs sometimes.

Oscar Wilde. Over and over again.
5. Hidden gem of the city?
Meet Me In The Morning café, off Camden Street.
