We grabbed a couple of great sandwiches here at Butlers Cafe Dublin Airport and as we didn't consume them on the flight they were delicious and very welcome for breakfast at our destination.

We had some time to kill before our flight so we checked out the cases with chocolate treats. They have piles of truffles, croissants and cookies.

On a previous visit to Dublin Airport, I had some good things to say about this café but I was constrained to make some unflattering comments about the staff’s general attitude. Things have not changed much. My coffee and cake were still first class but...More

We always visit this fine coffee café at the airport. The service is usually good, the coffees are tops and the free chocolates make it worth while

Staff are extremely courteous and service is quick. The coffee is very well made. Every customer gets a complimentary chocolate with each drink purchased. Prices are not reflected in this "freebie" and are very competitive. This is a "must visit" place every time I travel.

Had a 4 hour layover in Dublin and wanted something hot to drink. Butler's cappuccino was fantastic, and they gave me a free chocolate.

We ordered toasties to take to the boarding gate as we were short on time. They were overpriced, undercooked and under filled. The bread had barely been threatened with heat. The filling consisted of a piece of tomato, a sliver of onion and so little...More

A brief summary of good and not-so-good points. Good ones first: excellent coffee and cakes and of course chocolate. Not-so-good: cappuccino served in cardboard containers. It was really very good coffee none-the-less. Come on Butlers, you will not find this in Italy. The drink never...More

Since our foundation in 1932, we have strived to bring a little happiness to the world one chocolate at a time. Because nothing complements happiness better than coffee, in 1998 we opened the very first Butlers Chocolate Café in a beautiful corner of Wicklow Street in Dublin’s city centre. Our aim was to create a luxurious haven for chocolate and coffee lovers alike; a place where customers could enjoy the highest quality coffee, tea and chocolate beverages in stylish, welcoming and characterful surroundings. A free Butlers chocolate of choice is offered with every hot beverage purchased!
