A Day in Dublin

Hello my lovelies! Okay, so I think I should confront this crucial issue before continuing any further: it feels like I've blinked and been catapulted through time; it's September already!? Cue the witty originals on Facebook proclaiming they should heed Greenday's lyrical advice UGH. Perhaps it's the dawning of a new academic era, or the steady changing of the seasons, but September always feels like a new start for me. However, I was adamant to send off the summer in style so on Saturday my mum, Martin and myself took a day trip to Dublin's fair city. 

Of course we tended to all your typical touristy activities - visiting Carroll's Irish souvenir shop which had a lovely green theme goin' on, loitering around The Temple Bar pub and becoming a little too snap happy with my camera, and of course savouring some of the legendary black stuff - Guinness. In a very unfashionably Irish way, the weather was actually quite pleasant, not a whip of wind or raincloud in sight! Dublin is brimming with so many quaint little boutiques and charming cafes that no matter how many times I visit, there's always something new to explore and experience. All in all, it proved a brilliant way of reeling in the summer - to visit the capital of Ireland felt like a mini holiday in itself!

Have you ever visited Ireland/Dublin before?

  1. Beautiful photos! Went to dublin about 8yrs ago and would love to go back. Its a great city!! Xx


  2. Love these photos you took, I'd love to go to Dublin - will have to get myself there soon!


  3. Don't you hate it when you write a comment and it doesn't post. Arrgghh, that just happened, but anyway, I was saying...
    I'm off to Ireland in three weeks. Woohoo - Going to Donegal, but also to Dublin for a night/day :) Cant wait. Hope the weather stays nice.
    Its on my bucket list to drink a Guinness in Ireland, cant wait to tick it off.
    I've no idea where the time has gone. How is it September already???

  8. I've visited Dublin twice and I absolutely loved it! My partner and I did a lot of touristy stuff; we visited the Guinness and Jameson breweries and went to a few lovely cafes and to some of the famous pubs during the evening. I also managed to drink a lot of Guiness as well XD x
