Leaving the phone at home and heading to St Anne’s Park for a walk to clear the head and get some steps in. No music, no podcasts, no distraction, just out in the fresh air.
Moloughneys in Clontarf – pancakes with bacon and maple syrup… Need I say more?
McDonalds. I KNOW! But it’s so good and cheap too!
Good old Starbucks. It doesn’t matter which location I go to, I have somewhere to plug my laptop in, I have wifi and I have caramel macchiatos!
Musashi on Capel Street. This has the best sushi ever, it’s so fresh and affordable too, and there’s nothing like having a big feast there. The salmon avocado roll is the business, as are the pork gyozas.
Token. And I get to be entertained too even if I am pure rubbish at Mario Kart…
Arnotts. Their Beauty Hall is pure heaven and I’m in love with it! As for the rest of it, I’m sorted for shoes, clothes, homeware, books, stationery, you name it!
Glovers Alley. I’m not sure how hidden it is, but I’ve only been there once and between the food and decor, it’s just beautiful.
Jamie’s Italian. I know, hardly groundbreaking but that’s where our family meets for food and chats as it’s midway between where we all live. We always get the same round table in the corner and it’s somewhere that we love and we know Dad would have loved too.
The Marker Rooftop Terrace at sunset… Ooh it’s beautiful. Can’t beat the Morgan for a cheeky cocktail and I love House too.
Club Nassau. I love me some cheesy 80s dancing! Not gonna lie, I don’t go out dancing that often as I’m an official geriatric, but I’m all over anything 80s, even 90s at a push!
Zaytoon! Nothing like a dirty feed from there to help with the potential hangover the next day
The constant energy. There’s always such a buzz about the place whether it’s in the middle of the day or the middle of the night. There are always new places opening up and ready to try out!
The Alex. Interiors goals right there!
