  • Located at 11 Glentworth Street, this once-popular meeting place and café is no longer in operation.
  • Glentworth Street is named after Reverend William Cecil Pery, Bishop of Limerick, who was created Baron Glentworth of Mallow in 1790.
  • This site was one of 18 listed venues for the 27th edition of EVA in 2003, curated by Virginia Pérez-Ratton (b. 1950, Costa Rica) and titled On the border of each other.
  • Here, Deirdre Idema (b. 1972, Ireland) presented an installation titled Closer to Home – The Institute of Wallpaper (2003). The artist used wallpaper from her own living room in the café, exposing her intimate personal space to an unsuspecting public.
