Dublin City Council opens its first in a series of new city park cafes

Dublin City Council has announced the opening of an eagerly awaited addition to Harold’s Cross Park – a new tearooms operated by Noshington Café. The new café is part of Dublin City Council’s broader plan to provide tearooms in parks where there is a demand. The council also plans to open a new café in St. Patrick’s Park this autumn and in Herbert Park in spring 2015.

The Harold’s Cross Park café is sure to be a big draw to locals in the area and encourage even more people to visit the popular park on Harold’s Cross Road. It operates from the western end of the park, facing Mount Jerome Cemetery, and occupies a disused public toilet block which was originally constructed in 1943. It has now been imaginatively redesigned by Dublin City Council.

Cllr Mary Freehill, representing the Lord Mayor of Dublin, will officially open the café at 11.30am on Thursday 31st July. She says, “The new café is a great addition to the facilities in Harold’s Cross Park. As it is very conveniently located near the playground I am sure that it will be a big hit for parents and guardians of children in particular. I congratulate Dublin City Council on their creative reimagining of a disused building and wish Noshington Café every success in operating it.”

Noshington in Harold’s Cross Park will open from 10am-6pm, Monday to Sunday during the summer and 7.30am-4.30pm during the winter. It’s also sure to be a great addition to the growing choice of cafes and restaurants in Harold’s Cross.

Harold’s Cross Village Community & Business Association won the Cities category in last year’s IPB All Ireland Pride of Place competition.
