If you follow me on Instagram, it will come as no surprise that on my recent trip to Dublin, Dun Laoghaire was a particular favourite of mine. I traveled to Dun Laoghaire on the 46A (in the opposite direction of Phoenix Park, which I went to the day before). It was a relatively cheap and quick bus ride, and I spent the rest of the day wandering around Dun Laoghaire and Sandycove. Can I just say, if you’re going to spend a day wandering around Dublin and you want it to feel particularly magical, go to Dun Laoghaire. I felt like I was walking through the scenes of a very well written novel – probably because there’s lots of Ulyssess mentions everywhere, but still. Look at these pictures I took while there, (be warned, I took a lot, these are just my favourites!), and try and tell me that you don’t think it’s a magical place. (You’d be wrong, because it is).

I couldn’t leave without going for a walk along the pier. It was a bit chilly so I picked up a hot chocolate from the Teddy’s food van, and drank it while I walked. Seriously one of the best hot chocolates I’ve had, but I was really cold, and it was really beautiful, so I might be a bit biased. The view of the sailboats in the harbour was idyllic, you’ll see.
Then, before I left I did a bit of walking around in what I assume is the ‘downtown’ area of Dun Laoghaire. I went to a Starbucks, and a Penneys, and I took a picture of a church and a street corner, enjoy.
Some of these images have been processed with various filters from VSCO, if you want to know which one just ask in the comments! These are all my favourite pictures from one of my favourite places, hope you enjoyed and please leave comment if you do! More pictures from Temple Bar and downtown Dublin coming soon 🙂
