I have visited Dublin a few times now, but my brother has never been before so we went on a lovely big family holiday for his birthday. It was so much fun playing tourist again in one of my favourite cities, and I made sure I showed him every single thing I loved about this fantastic city. Because of this, I didn't snap as many photos as I intended to! But Ireland is just so, so special to me. I feel so me when I'm there. And whilst my friends grew up loving Sclub 7 *or insert big band of the 90s/00s (!!)* I just wanted to be part of The Corrs and spent much of my childhood playing their music and learning how to play Irish music on the piano and violin!
There's so much to do in Dublin and it really depends what your tastes are. I always, always recommend you head down for a music and dance evening because this is such a wonderful way to experience Irish culture. Try so steer clear of the very, very touristy spots (so, basically, not Temple Bar!) but music radiates everywhere in Ireland and I love that. We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel in Dublin which is a pretty flawless hotel chain and this is definitely one of the nicest I have stayed at. It's in a gorgeous quiet part of Dublin, surrounded by the beautiful elegant Georgian streets. Let me know if you'd like to see a Dublin guide as I could write forever on things to do!
I've made a very makeshift video above as I had a few clips on my camera but Youtube has made the quality go very shaky and slow motion, so I'm utterly confused! I definitely need to understand more about the uploading Youtube process so please do bear with me! Also a huge thank you for your patience whilst I've been away and just so busy at Beauxoxo. I stare at my diary longingly wanting to create complete blogging days but it just hasn't happened yet.
I hope you liked my photos from Dublin and if you ever have any questions about things to do let me know. I'd also highly recommend Leanne from 'Thunder and Threads' as she's my favourite Dublin gal. I also adore Donal Skehan whose blog will have you completely sorted for food lovers!
Do I have any Irish followers reading this? How many of you love Dublin just as much as I do?
