What to do in Dublin #1

June 17, 2016

Dublin2Today was my first day in Dublin. My friend, Wilge, and I explored the city in the afternoon and we found three amazing hotspots we just had to share with you. So if you are looking into a city trip to Dublin, you should add these three places to your list.

Dublin3 Dublin4Looking for an affordable, but amazing restaurant? I suggest you eat at Old Music Shop! This restaurant looks like a diner from the 50s and it has wonderful, freshly made dishes. You can get the traditional fish & chips, choose from their long list of gourmet burgers, or you can get pizza and many more dishes. The staff is super friendly and Wilge and I ate for €26, both of our meals and drinks combined! Definitely a big success!

Dublin5We stumbled across this Auntie Nellie’s Traditional Irish Sweet Shop while exploring and we couldn’t resist going in. This store has both traditional and newer candies (including Nerds, Chocolate Frogs, Chocolates, …). Definitely a go-to place for a sweet tooth!

Dublin6 Dublin8The last hotspot in today’s blog post is a tiny vintage store, called “The Harlequin”. This store has some amazing treasures both for men and women. Two of my favorite items in there were a black polka dot dress (see picture) and some Levi’s shorts for only €25. This store is worth visiting.
