Dublin

3 Jun

As my Birthday present back in April Mr S booked us a trip to Dublin in Ireland, as Dublin is somewhere we both had never been and for various reasons wanted to go.

We had a Lovely time!
And the sun shone all weekend for us!
Mr S is the only person that can go to Ireland and get sunburn (that will be his Irish rooted super fair skin & red hair).

We enjoyed all the usual Dublin Highlights…

The Castle,

And enjoyed various nights out, filled with meeting new people, good food, Irish music and of course Guinness.

We went to the oldest Pub in Dublin, The Brazen Head.
Well worth going as its slightly out of the way from the main area of Temple Bar (the renowned ‘social’ area in Dublin). Being out of the way also means it is minus the stag and hen party’s, but this by all means doesn’t make it quiet in fact it’s always busy, but worth the wait we found.

Another great place to eat is The Bank, it combines an amazing venue to eat in as well as gorgeous food!

The building used to be, you guessed it, an old bank so the decor is beautiful.

The food also was very nice indeed. I love the little touches; the chocolate that came with the coffee was a chocolate gold euro.

We also went to The Cake Cafe, now I have mixed feelings about this place. We searched this out, as it sounded right up my street but I was a little disappointed I’m sorry to say.

We did enjoyed our lunch,

And the presentation was very nice.
I could have stayed there all day trying their tea selection.

So don’t get me wrong the service was fine, the place it’s self though hard to find was impressive, but the cake wasn’t the best I’ve ever had it was just kinda average- sorry Cake Cafe.

But on another positive note this cafe had the most AMAZING toilet you have ever seen. The room is filled with an eclectic mix. Unfortunately I didn’t photograph it.

And the creativity extends out to the under cover eating area where the whole back wall is an array of mosaic’s. Very inventive using everything from puzzle pieces to bottle caps, baby’s old toys, computer parts anything and everything.

As my whim was to go to The Cake Cafe, I felt Mr S deserved a whim. While researching Dublin’s sights I found reviews for the Bald Barista, they are known for good coffee and Mr S is a coffee drinker. Mr S say’s they are right it’s not bad coffee and the cakes here looked fabulous with a great selection and gluten free as well. Unfortunately we didn’t try as we were saving ourselves for The Cake Cafe.

And that my lovelies is a summary of our time in Dublin.
