Last month started with a little trip to the South of Ireland where I was attending a wedding. The wedding itself took place in a church at the top of a hill, overlooking Dungarvan bay and its oyster farms. These were breathtaking views, to say the least.
For the reception, we headed to Ballycotton, in county Cork, which had the recipe down for the perfect Irish seaside holiday, what with its cute lighthouse and its wide beaches (making a mental note to come back).
Back in Dublin, I went to the food festival Taste of Dublin for the first time! It is set in the beautiful Iveagh Gardens and the general easy-going atmosphere as well as the accent made on good local Irish food reminded me a lot of Bloom Festival.
I also got to explore two more neighbourhoods with Emily: Baggot Street and the Liberties. They were full of good surprises like these scrumptious cakes in Eathos and the colourful cottages behind Meath Street. Add the usual #dublindoors, flowers (yay for peony season!), parks, street art and classic cars and you have my month of June seen through my phone!
Also, I wanted to mention that I had a little feature on the Guardian Cities instagram account, I listed some of my favourite Dublin instagrammers, if you’re looking for people from around here to follow!
