About this Death Cafe
At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, enjoy café-type drinks and discuss death.
Our objective is 'to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.
A Death Café is a group directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counselling session. There are no ''experts'' at a Death Café, therefore no guest speakers etc.
Our Death Cafés are always offered:
- On a not for profit basis
- In an accessible, respectful and confidential space
- With no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action
- Alongside refreshing drinks and nourishing food – and cake!

About Beth Wallace
Beth Wallace is an Applied Psychology graduate & psychotherapist working as a Sexual Wellness 'expert', she's also been holding Death Cafés in Ireland since early 2016 while working in fields allied with death & the conscious awareness of death & dying for 30 years.
She loves holding Death Cafés as they offer space for people to talk about something that is usually seen as taboo. She loves that there is always laughter at a Death Café and she loves how intimate they are, because people are talking about something that really matters - the finite nature of life.
