WHERE — Dublin
PHOTOGRAPHY — Sam Flaherty
DISCLAIMER — We paid for 100% of this trip ourselves
Maybe I’m late to the party, but I had no idea Dublin was such a cool city until I made my recent pilgrimage. In celebration of it’s coolness, I’ve rounded up a list of all my favourite spots.
After our Irish road trip (aka the road trip to end all road trips), Sam and I spent a few nights in Dublin, a city – in all on fairness – that I didn’t know a whole lot about. It’s not like anyone had ever suggested Dublin wasn’t worth exploring, but nor had anyone suggested it was a city I should drop everything and visit. And I have to say, Dublin deserves way more props than it’s given.
The restaurants and cafes rival London, minus the queues and moody vibes. There are so many incredible vintage and antiques stores, I almost (almost) don’t want to let you in on the secrets. Plus the people are funny (not making fun of the accent, promise!) and there’s plenty of great drinks on tap.
So we spent three days attempting to try out more cafes and restaurants than there were meals in the day, and seeing as much of the city as we could by foot (despite the rain). This is by no means a definitive guide; it’s more like a quick introductory guide to a city that’s more than worthy of your travel hit list.
