In the Shadow of the Old Canal: Black & White Views of Coopers Cafe.

It’s been decades since the old Grand Canal Harbour behind the Guinness Brewery was drained and filled in.

Dublin’s Guinness brewery had an historic relationship with the Grand Canal. The old canal harbour was located across the street from the brewery complex.
The old Harbour Bar takes its name from the Grand Canal Harbour. The canal buildings are at the far right of this  image.

Recently, I explored this area on my way over to visit Coopers Cafe operated by my friends Jeff and Noel Brennan.

This is on the edge Dublin’s Liberties, an industrial neighborhood with a lot of history. Today, it’s up and coming, although many of the neat gritty old buildings remain.

Coopers Cafe is located directly behind the Guinness brewery on the corner of Bond and Robert Streets.
Breakfast is served anytime from opening till closing. I had mine at 2pm.
There’s a lot of history around Coopers Cafe. Come in, have a coffee or tea and soak in the atmosphere!
