Despite announcing in May it would close, Bewley's on Grafton Street will be back operating next month.

110 jobs were expected to go at the iconic coffee shop because of a dispute over rent arrears and the impact of Covid-19.

In a statement, management have confirmed Bewley's will re-open on a phased basis, beginning with coffee and bakery on August 27th or earlier if possible.

A wider café offering will follow.

The landmark cafe had closed and reopened a number of times since it was first established in 1927.

In recent years the cafe underwent a multi-million euro refurbishment.

State take-over

Damien Cassidy, chair of the National Conservation and Heritage Group, says the state should take over the long-running business;

"I can't understand how the government have not yet done that. I mean they had two warnings in the past. They failed to move when the Bewley family, to which we owe the heritage of Bewley's, had to sell out."
