Happy Out started out as Bull Island’s only cafe three years ago, a passion project for uncle and nephew combo, Karl McCullagh and Brian Hanratty. Simply put, it is a cafe built from two shipping containers on the edge of Dublin. Happy Out was created as a place for people to escape the city and chill out, sip on lovely coffee, munch away on tasty toasties and enjoy the amazing view of the infamous Poolbeg Chimneys.
Over the years we've been adding to our menu and the curiosity of a bigger kitchen got the better of us. While sea side locations will always be a firm favourite for Happy Out, we decided to look inland and stumbled across an exciting premise in Donnybrook. Brian grew up in the area, so when the opportunity arose to establish Happy Out, with a slightly different twist, on the Southside… we just couldn't resist!
But thats not all... We have also grown a nice collection of merch with cosy, casual clothing being our style. Our coffee knowledge bringing a great selection of home brewing equipment... We are quickly becoming your go to for a day chilling at home!
