Anybody who has ever lived in Dublin or even visited the city will know that it’s home to some of the best cafes and coffee shops in the world, and Each Night’s study has just confirmed Dublin’s status as Europe’s coffee capital.
So what makes lovely Dublin the most coffee-obsessed city on the continent? Well, the study focussed on how many cafes and coffee shops there are in each city per million people.
Dublin comes out on top, with a population of 525,383 and a whopping 232 cafes at which those people can drink their fix of caffeine. So, there are plenty of places in the capital where you can grab a flat white or espresso. In fact, there’s one cafe per 2,265 people in the city!
Surprisingly, Dublin has more cafes per capita than even Rome, and we all know how much Italy loves coffee. However, London has far more cafes than Dublin – 1,585 – but the population of London is 8,961,989. This is far greater than Dublin’s population so there are fewer cafes per capita than in Dublin.
