One of the many reasons why I fell in love with Dublin is definitely all the amazing food I got to eat there! And while I certainly visited a fair share of nice restaurants and pubs during my 9-day stay in the city, I know someone who is lucky enough to live there: Welcome Tais from Nyr Dagur Blog!I teamed up with Tais to write the ultimate foodie guide to Dublin with all of her favourite places to eat (the local's perspective) and all of my favourite places (the tourist's perspective).
It's no secret that I absolutely fell in love with Ireland on my trip at Christmas and there are so many secret and not so secret gems I've discovered. From walking the Royal Canal Way at Boxing Day to learning all about the Titanic in Belfast. I also enjoy all the food we got to eat in Dublin but I don't have to tell you that the pub culture is big in Ireland, right?!Instead I'd like to present 5 places that I think should absolutely be on your itinerary when you visit Ireland!
It shouldn't really come as a surprise to you but Ireland is an incredibly beautiful country! It was never really on my radar though. Scotland and the Shetland Islands - yes, for sure! London obviously. But Ireland? For some reason to me, Ireland always came second to what the UK offers. That is until this Christmas when we discovered ridiculously cheap flight deals (which let's be honest, happens rarely if you travel from Tromso) to Dublin and simply thought "why not"?!
Instead of boring you with a 2016 recap, I want to at least fill you in on Simon's and my trip to the Emerald Isle this Christmas. It was the first time for the both of us to spend Christmas abroad and away from our families and while it wasn't quite as festive in 13 degrees and sunshine, it certainly felt incredible to take walks at the beach with the sun shining in our faces.
