I firmly believe that the best way to know a place is to get lost in it.That’s pretty much the spirit every time I go to Dublin.
I’m lucky enough to live close to Dublin, so I can go there fairly often. But what makes it really interesting is the getting lost bit. I found some amazing places and sights, totally by chance.
Merrion Square Park must be my favorite park in the city. Why? Because it’s fairly small, all lamp posts are different (yes, check it out, they are all different shapes or colours), there’s a statue of Oscar Wilde and quotes from his books. What else can you ask for? It’s also very quiet throughout the year and you can just sit on one of the benches and just take it all in.
Speaking of Parks, of course, St Stephen’s Green, with its ponds, and colourful paths. No matter the season, check out the amazing colours of leaves and flowers!
While there have a look at St Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre, maybve not much for the shops, but for the building itself. I have to say, it’s particularly nice during Christmas, with all decorations up.
It’s true what they say, doors in Dublin are special. So colourful and they come in all shapes and decorations. Walk around the city and just look at the doors, it’s a tour on its own!! It is also a chance to learn more about the architecture in Dublin. Georgian Dublin is famous for its wide streets, the elegant town houses with big windows, porticos and red bricks.
More Dublin coming up!
