Cycling into the city centre to grab my morning coffee at Coffeeangel
Because I work for myself I often have breakfast (and lunch) by myself to I love to sit somewhere cosy with a lovely atmosphere. Brother Hubbard is just around the corner for me which I really enjoy. If I have a bit more time to spare, I’ll cycle to The Fumbally.
I did the social media for Coffeeangel which opened my eyes to the absolutely wonderful world of specialty coffee. I can’t choose just one spot in Dublin because we are lucky to have so many wonderful independent coffee shops, but some of my favourites would have to be Coffeeangel & Network. Not just for their phenomenal coffee but they have such friendly, talented baristas which make the whole experience an absolute joy.
My office is anywhere I can bring my laptop. I find the noises of a busy coffeeshop really soothing and helps me power through work, so I’ll go to somewhere like Wall & Keogh if I want to get my head down and not talk to anyone. If I want to be distracted, I’ll head to Network, you’re always bound to have the chats in there!
Where I eat lunch really varies on the time of year. This summer we had such incredible weather I ended up getting taking away a box from Blazing Salads most days and eating it in the park. My favourite spot to eat-in right now is The Ramen Bar. There’s nothing like miso soup or a hearty ramen to warm you up on these miserable winter days!
I’m at the stage in my life where hardly any of my friends have children. I can’t wait til more of them do, because I am a massive kid so I’d be happy to do do whatever kids are into these days.
Maria Tash. I could spend all my money in there.
It’s not necessarily a hidden gem but I would probably bring them to the Hideout for some BYOB & pool, with a healthy dash of competition.
My local, the Bernard Shaw, No Name Bar & maybe Idlewild Bar.
I love to devour a good Indian after a night of dancing, and Tandoori Bite on Richmond St is the perfect.
It doesn’t matter where you go, you’ll always bump into familiar friendly faces.
I haven’t stayed there yet, but I do like the look of the Devlin which just opened.
