The Commons Café

Set in the original student dining halls of UCD Newman House, the Commons has long been a space for sharing food and ideas amongst friends. In its newest form, led by sisters Domini and Peaches Kemp, the Commons continues this wonderful legacy, showcasing Ireland’s beautiful produce and culinary heritage.


MoLI’s opening saw the unveiling of our newly landscaped Courtyard and Readers Gardens. The gardens contain two protected trees: the ash tree that James Joyce had his graduation photograph taken against and a beautiful Killarney Strawberry tree. We hope that the gardens will continue to be a place of reading, learning and gentle enjoyment of nature.
