Our third cafe is in the iconic Dun Laoghaire Baths building in partnership with Together Academy.

The Together Academy is a unique social enterprise in Dublin that provides young adults with Down syndrome (Ds) certified training, practical work experience, employment opportunities and a critical social and support network. Operating in Wanderers Rugby Club, with the support of DDLETB, the Together Academy is training young adults in culinary skills and supporting their learning in a modern, dynamic, popular training café.

The collaboration between Happy Out Cafe and Together Academy began when Brian Hanratty of Happy Out, was inspired by Together Academy’s vision of inclusion and employment for young adults with Down syndrome. Training the students with barista training and advising on the set up the coffee counter and other systems for the cafe. The Together Café opened in 2022 to rave reviews.
