Carton House officially opened the doors of Dublin’s newest café – Browns Bar & Café by Carton House – at Brown Thomas department store.

Cathal Kavanagh, executive chef and creative mind in the kitchen at Carton House has chosen a selection of some of the most popular and mouth-watering dishes from Carton House for the new menu along with a wide range of coffees created by the Carton House barista.

The café, on the lower ground floor, will also sell products from the gourmet Carton House food range such as dressings, sauces and seasonal offerings including Christmas and Valentine’s Day products.

Soulful Irish singer-composer Julie Feeney hosted the intimate evening of music in the new bar and eatery. Among the guests spotted enjoying the stylish get-together were Lorraine Keane, designer Heidi Higgins, Sean Munsanje, Alison Lawless, Deirdre O’Brien and Ray Foley.
