DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL is opening a series of tearooms in parks around the city.

The first in the series is officially opening today in Harold’s Cross Park and is being operated by Noshington Café.

The council plans to provide tearooms in parks where there is a demand, with plans to open a new café in St. Patrick’s Park this autumn and in Herbert Park in spring 2015.

Old spaces redesigned

The café in Harold’s Cross Park occupies a disused public toilet block which was originally constructed in 1943, which has been redesigned by Dublin City Council.

Councillor Mary Freehill, said 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 officially open today at 11.30am. Opening hours will be from 10am-6pm, Monday to Sunday during the summer and 7.30am-4.30pm during the winter.
