Employees Of Bewley’s Café Of Grafton Street Officially Made Redundant

The employees of Bewley’s café on Dublin’s Grafton Street have officially been made redundant.

It was announced in May that the decision had been made to permanently close the café, but, despite this, the café’s landlord, Ronan Group Real Estate, said in June that it was hopeful that the café would reopen on Monday June 29.

However, the venue’s 110 staff members were informed on Wednesday July 1 that they are being made redundant.

“With Profound Sadness”

A Bewley’s spokesperson told The Irish Times, “Following the completion of an employee consultation process that commenced in May, Bewley’s Café Grafton Street has today [Wednesday July 1], with profound sadness, confirmed the permanent closure of the café.

“As a result, all café employees have been informed that they will be made redundant. The company will continue to engage with impacted employees in relation to their redundancies and ensure their statutory and contractual entitlements are discharged in full.”

The café’s last day of trading was Monday March 16.
