I actually wrote this blog post last month but completely forgot to post it, but as it is about Dublin City, I feel that it will always be relevant!
Last month, I took a day off work during the week as my mam and younger sister had the day off and we wanted to take advantage of one of the last summery days we would have and headed into Dublin. I love Dublin City, and really don’t get to visit as much as I would like to so I was quite excited to go in for the day.
We started off our day with some shopping on O’Connell street and then walked up to Grand Canal to a little restaurant called Herbstreet – the food was divine and it has a great view too. The food is really reasonably priced and Delicious, We then took a few pictures near the Bord Gais and walked off our food on the way to Grafton street. I love Grafton street – it is always so lively and I love the busking on the streets! We again did a spot of shopping – couldn’t help ourselves – and then went for cocktails in Cafe en Seine.
For anyone who has not been to Cafe en Seine, I would definitely recommend it, the atmosphere there is great and the interiors are amazing. I have included some pictures below! After our cocktails we popped into L’audree – I have an obsession with macaroons – and then headed to Salamanca, which mam highly recommended. I had never tried a tapas bar before, but I am obsessed already. I ordered from the early board menu, which was about €17for three tapas dishe. I chose chicken paella, potato skins with caramalised onions and bacon, and then also the chicken with creamy white wine sauce. Each dish was scrumptious and I already cannot wait to go back and eat their again!
It was a great day out and would highly recommend all of the above places we visitied for food and drinks!
