Progress Report from Dublin

Tonight we opened both shops in Dublin for a few hours. As always, the last pieces are the most difficult and finishing the shops is proving quite a challenge.

The glass in Temple Bar finally arrived (photo above), and it took three days to install instead of the one we had expected, but at least it’s in and now there’s just some more cladding to do and general tidying up.

In Wicklow Street (photo right), we’re still without a few key pieces – extra cladding, tables for the back, swings for the front, and various bits of branding.

I’m very tired and very excited at the same time. I know it’s going to take an awful lot of effort to get the final bits and pieces done, but at least the shops are in our control now, and at least we can start doing what we love, and that’s selling ice cream!

  1. I have been following your blog for the past five years or so, and when I first saw your store in Powerscourt (dub), I told all my friends. Last week I saw the store open in Temple bar, and I went crazy. Yesterday I saw the one open on Wicklow street and I was in heaven. BTW, your crew/staff in the Temple Bar store are amazing at recommending flavours. Sea Salt+Burnt Caramel, BEST COMBO EVER!

  2. Just read in Caroline’s blog that you were opening in Dublin.

  5. Hi guys

    Just a quick note to congratulate you on opening up in Dublin! I have been championing the Murphy’s Ice Cream cause since my first scoop of goodness in Dingle all those years ago. Anyway, I’ve been in to Wicklow Street, just at closing time just to wish them well and was very kindly offered a complimentary hot chocolate. With generosity like that, success is sure to follow! Best of luck!
