An excellent bar-restaurant in the heart of Dublin. A stone's throw from Trinity College Dublin and St Stephen's Green. Highly recommended for both business lunch and casual drinks

What an amazing place. Been to some pretty impressive bars in pretty impressive buildings in cities in the USA, Scotland and England but this is probably the most impressive I've ever visited- probably because I love Art Deco furnishings and this place is full of them.

Rumor says that this once been woted as a top ten cocktail bar in the world. An absolute must when visiting Dublin. I always get there for a Mojito or a Jack and Coke. Friendly and skilled staff and the atmosphere is priceless.

I enjoyed CeS's atmosphere. My cappuccino was good flavored however, it was Luke warm. Nothing special but the atmosphere. I am sure that it could have been just one time of an experience being a bit "off" and I would go back!

We stumbled across this brilliant cafe by accident after hopping off the hop on hop off bus tour on Dawson Street in Dublin. The red shop front leads into Art Deco Heaven.

We used to live in Dublin a fair few years ago. Visiting the city again with our children, we popped into this bar for a coffee with our children. It's an enormous place, but it still has a great look and a nice atmosphere... as it did years ago.
