Peacock Green, Lord Edward Street, Christchurch, Dublin 2

I noticed the stylish front of Peacock Green a few weeks ago before it opened and had the feeling I'd like it.

As Mr. FFID ans I were walking on Dame Street we saw it was open and just had to stop to have a look.

Oh la la! It's such a gorgeous looking coffee shop with very pretty decor. Little 'eat me' tags on the pastries, large jars filled with tea and vintage objects scattered all around the place, these were some of the little details I loved about this place.

On the shelf with the usual sugar, cutlery and napkins you can help yourself to jams and relish.

You can either sit on the stools downstairs by the window, facing Lord Edward Street or go for the little seating area upstairs.

It's quite cramped upstairs but cosy in a way, with quotes painted on the walls, a shabby chic chandelier and baroque frames covering the walls.

The milk is placed in lovely cow shaped jars and the cups have 'Paris' written of them. Très stylish! As we had already eaten at home we only ordered a coffee, a tea and 2 little chocolate treats that were eaten before I took pictures of the cute crockery.

Unfortunately I can't comment on the food as I haven't tasted it, but it seemed fairly cheap: smoked salmon and spinach quiche (€3.95), small portion of salad (€3.95) or sandwiches (€4.95). They sell croissants, scones, cinnamon twirls, brownies and more, that I have to try next time.

It was filled with tourists due to the bank holiday weekend and its proximity to Christchurch. Mr. FFID said the coffee wasn't amazing and I had a regular tea but I liked the feel of the place. Ladies will probably love this coffee shop but guys might find it a bit too girly looking. I definitely think it's a nice addition to this area of the city centre. I actually found out there was another Peacock Green, a restaurant/deli on Leeson Street Loweer. Has anyone tried it?

This is an independent review, I paid for my drinks.



  1. I only just spotted this place the other day! I'm glad it is in fact new - I was worried it had been there for ages and I was only just finding out about it.

    Must pop in soon. It looks amazing.

    1. Don't worry it's very new :) The decor is pretty, I think you're going to like it!

    2. I think you are wrong on the coffee. This cafe has some of the finest in Dublin, americano particularly good. My friend and I go here regularly as we work closeby and shes into her coffee! Scones are v tasty too.

    3. I don't drink coffee, this was my partner's opinion ;)

  2. The coffee I got from Peacock Green was easily better than the usually celebrated coffee spots in the city. And a bigger serving, too. This place is a real gem that's kind of been overlooked imo.

    They also do al fresco afternoon tea on the lawn outside Christchurch during the summer.

    1. Thanks for stopping by. I don't drink coffee so I just wrote what my partner thought of it. The afternoon tea sounds great!
