The horse being spotted in the “coffee trailer” joke is an oldie but a goodie. Even more prescient now that coffee shops that operate out of actual brick and mortar seem to be in the minority. Starting out in 2018, you could say that Fools & Horses Coffee took the lead rein in that regard.
Making their name serving coffee drive-thru style off the Walkinstown Roundabout, in their hand converted old 1977 classic Irish rice box. Fools & Horses Coffee have extended their horse-trailer-coffee dynasty by opening in Phibsborough, down from the shopping centre (Dublin’s latest co-living project).
Using Upside Coffee Roasters washed Colombian blend for their cups, the team sells a fine selection of pastries from Tartine Organic Bakery (who stock the likes of Goats Gruff, Brew Barberista, and Oxmanstown) out of their Phibsborough branch.
Up until a couple of months ago, the team had a trailer set up in Dundrum Shopping Centre. They have shared plans of a reopening in the area soon with eager punters, telling them on Instagram that they should be reopening “hopefully soon”.
Fools & Horses Coffee are open Monday to Saturday 9am – 3.30pm, follow them on Instagram for more information.
