Original Telephone Box

The first “Telefon” box was installed as far back as 1925. To this day you can find this box on Dawson Street, Dublin.
In 1932 the boxes were fitted throughout Dublin in response to the Catholic Eucharistic Congress. The increased popularity from this event led to their installation throughout the island.
In recent years with deep modernisation taking place all over Ireland it was decided that the old “Telefon” boxes would be removed from the landscape. With it went an important piece of our Irish history and culture.
Today there are only a handful of original boxes remaining dotted throughout the countryside.
The old iconic boxes with the unmistakable “Telefon” branding has a place in the hearts and minds of generations of Irish people.

4 star ratingFantastic Had my daughters birthday party here. It was just a small gathering but that didn't matter. We were treated so well and nothing was a problem to ask for. I especially would like to thank Barry for looking after us so well. We had a lovely night. Food was fantastic, music was great and atmosphere was brilliant. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. Thoroughly recommend either having a meal or spending your evening there. You most definitely will not be disappointed.
