Marc and Conor Bereen, owners of Coppinger Row, have confirmed that their iconic Dublin city centre restaurant will close on 31st December. After 13 years, a long-planned redevelopment of the site by the landlord will begin, and the shutters will go down on one of Dublin’s best-loved dining destinations.
“Coppinger Row restaurant was at the heart of the South William Street renaissance — opening during the global recession in a quiet side street in the former rag trade quarter, and building a new vibe with the help of a fun and dynamic team and our wonderfully loyal customers. It’s been quite a journey! We are focused on our sister restaurant Charlotte Quay and an intimate new neighbourhood project on Dublin’s southside, but in the meantime, come make new memories with us in the lead-up to Christmas at Coppinger Row,” said Marc Bereen. “We are hopeful that Coppinger Row could reopen in the redeveloped premises if we can get the landlord to agree to not go to market.”
Over the next six weeks, diners are invited to share their favourite photo memories of Coppinger Row on Instagram. Each week, the best throwback or current pic, or both together, will win lunch for two at Charlotte Quay. Use the hashtags #AuRevoir #CoppingerRow.
“The next few weeks will be happy, but sad too,” said Conor Bereen. “We’ve welcomed everyone from Beyoncé to George Clooney, and rugby stars to politicians, but it’s our regulars that we’ll miss the most. They made us and kept us going through tough times. We like to think we played our part in making our neighbourhood so great, and we will miss it hugely. But watch this space — literally!”
