Travel | Dun Laoghaire, Dublin 

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

I took this walking along the shorefront, with a selfie stick, while people stared. Dedication.

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).

One time I turned a corner and there was an old man playing fetch with his dog on these rocks. True story, and highlight from my visit.

Sandycove Beach and the Forty Foot

It was October, this is the ocean, people were swimming both at the beach and at the Forty Foot. Unreal.

I took this at the Forty Foot and I just like it a lot

Dun Laoghaire Pier

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. Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

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.
