"Family-owned coffee company Bewley’s is one of Dublin’s most fascinating and beloved local businesses. Head to its Grafton Street home to hear all about its stunning growth (it now has roasting facilities in the UK and US), followed by a freshly-baked Heritage Bun and a Bewley’s tea or coffee in the historic and recently-renovated cafe. You’ll learn all the interesting nuggets of Bewley’s history including how founder Joshua Bewley launched the business by chartering a clipper ship on a treacherous roundtrip journey to the Far East. His was the very first vessel to travel from China to Ireland and he returned with 2,099 chests of tea leaves!"
