Container Coffee, measuring just over 27 square metres with an outside patio area for additional seating outside, has just opened up at the Digital Hub in Dublin 8.

The café, which looks like a shipping container in appearance, is the brainchild of entrepreneur Gordon Hickey and prides itself on caring for the environment and its use of eco-friendly products (only biodegradable coffee cups are used and the café’s aim is to be a plastic free venue).

“I am hoping that Container Coffee will become a regular spot for local workers to get their daily caffeine fix and for the many tourists in the area to stop, refuel and gather some information on the area,” Gordon Hickey, founder of Container Coffee said.

The opening was welcomed by the Digital Hub, who said that it would also be a great addition to the Local Business Forum.

“The team at The Digital Hub recognise ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ straight away, and Gordon has that. Given our commitment to the urban regeneration of the Liberties area, it was a no-brainer to help an entrepreneur open a new retail business that will be a great addition to the streetscape and the community,” Fiach Mac Conghail, ceo of the Digital Hub said.
