We celebrated our 12th birthday on November 19th 2015.
We asked customers to share their particular memories and stories of birthday celebrations in Peploe’s.
People were brilliant with what they sent us so with their permission we decided to create this little memory page, we hope you enjoy our guests stories as much as we did!!!
Peploe’s is named after the renowned Scottish Colourist, Samuel John Peploe.
Reproductions of his artwork and that of other Scottish Colourists (commissioned from young Irish artists) adorn our walls, to follow is a flavour of some of the paintings you can enjoy when you visit us!
Peploe’s story is the culmination of a long-held ambition for the owner, Barry Canny, to open an accessible, affordable bistro reflecting his personal passion for simple good food, fine wine and art.
The building dates from the 1760’s and is classic Georgian Dublin. It was a rather ambitious project that Mr Canny embarked upon to develop the basement location as it housed an 18 tonne steel door and is a listed building. 2 years and 350 tonnes of concrete later Peploe’s opened its doors on the 19th of November 2003 to an incredible buzz of interest.
