The Happy Pear and South Dublin County Council are delighted to announce that the NEW Round Tower Centre in the historic Clondalkin Village will be run by The Happy Pear. The Happy Pear has now officially been appointed as the operator to run the Clondalkin Round Tower Visitor Centre, also making it the first ever Dublin location for The Happy Pear.
The new flagship development, which includes the visitor centre and will incorporate a NEW Happy Pear cafe and food shop, will open its doors this summer. It will also feature a terraced dining area, public garden, exhibition and gallery spaces, making the entire development a great addition to the village for all generations. The Happy Pear hope to offer a full breakfast, lunch and dinner menu at the new cafe with seating for around 60 customers.
Quote from The Happy Pear Co-founders and Directors, David and Stephen Flynn:
This is a really great development and this collaboration is a very exciting move for our business. We’re really delighted to be bringing The Happy Pear to this incredible new centre, which is rich in history and culture and will provide a real focal point for the village.
We’re really looking forward to making healthy food even more accessible in South Dublin County and to making a positive impact on the local community and economy, by providing exciting new employment opportunities. We can’t wait to open the doors and meet everyone from the community, and of course breakfast is on us – we’ll continue our long-standing tradition of providing free, organic porridge every morning in the new cafe.
