Rose Festival & North Bull Island | Dublin

Rose Festival & North Bull Island

It was a hot afternoon in July, I had just come back from London, right in time for Saint Anne’s Park Rose Festival. I had been wanting to visit the park and its yearly floral event for a quite a while now. Every July, for a weekend, the beautiful rose gardens are celebrated by the local community. Families gather the time of a weekend, to enjoy the festivities. The cheerful atmosphere actually reminded me a lot of the Bloom Festival. Plant sales, craft stands, food stalls were lined up in the park’s paths while a band was giving the crowds a soundtrack for that happy Summer day. The kids were flying mini kites or queuing for a ride on the carrousel. And let’s not forget the star of the weekend, roses in their different shape or colour were admired in one of Dublin’s best rose gardens.

St Anne’s park is located in the north of Dublin bay, between Clontarf and Raheny. It offers many interesting features, aside from the rose garden. Most prominently, many follies in decay but also a walled garden and a clock tower, as well as the Red Stables which houses an arts centre, a cosy little cafe and markets on the weekend. And last but not least, there’s a line of oaks that bears a striking resemblance to the Dark Hedges from TV show Game of Thrones. This park is so fun and its diverse landscape made me think of my childhood grounds, le Parc Solvay in Brussels. This might just be my new favourite park in Dublin!

Another great thing about this park is that it’s facing the seashore, more precisely the entrance to North Bull Island. I had never been there so I decided to kill two birds with one stone while I was in the area and pay it a visit.

The road to the island crosses salt marshes which holds a UNESCO protected bird sanctuary. Dublin is actually the only capital city which has an entire biosphere reserve within its walls. At the end of the causeway, you’ll find dunes and the man-made beach Dollymount Strand. It’s a beautiful sandy beach which offers great views on the Dublin bay, on one side, the Poolbeg Chimneys stand tall while on the other side, Howth head lies on the fluffy sea.

Lavender Harvest Sale | co. Wicklow

Lavender Harvest Party

Last month, I had quite a little exciting Saturday planned. I was heading to county Wicklow to see the lavender field in Kilmacanogue. I had been wanting to visit one again ever since going to the Wexford Lavender Farm last year. It was such a romantic experience!
I was also really excited to try out my new camera and lens. I had only been filming so far so I was really keen to see how I got on with it for taking pictures. And what better place to test a camera than a flower field! I bought a Canon 700d and a 24mm lens. I usually shoot with a 50mm which I still love dearly but the 24mm with its wider angle gives so much more space to work with, I’ve been loving the freedom of movement it allows. Let me know what you think of the pictures, hope you like them!

Lavender Harvest PartyLavender Harvest PartyLavender Harvest Party

Every month of July, Fragrances of Ireland organises a Lavender Harvest Party in Kilmacanogue… or is it Kilmacanog or Kilmacanoge? Even the locals can’t seem to agree, I saw the three different spellings in the space of a yard. And apparently, it is pronounced Kilmacanick I found out after embarrassing myself talking to a helpful bus driver. All of it is very confusing for little old Belgian me. The good thing is that the field was very easy to find, the less good thing is that it is next to a busy motorway. It kind of killed the Provence vibe unfortunately. On one side of the road, you can look at the lavender rows (a kind lady harvester let me in so I could take pictures but I don’t think you’re really meant to, the alleyways were quite brambly) and on the other side, there’s the harvest sale set in a cute little courtyard.
I think it’s one of those instances where having a car makes the experience more pleasant. It was easy enough going from the field to the courtyard by foot (there’s a bridge over the motorway for crossing it) but walking along cars can be a bit stressful, especially when the pathway disappears. If you ever go, I’d recommend as well you to visit during the first weekend of July so you can see the field in its full purple splendour before it gets gradually chopped.

At the harvest sale, you’ll find all the lavender by-products you can expect: fresh pots of lavender, dried lavender, essential oils, perfumes and soaps. You can also buy them online on the Fragrances of Ireland website (along with other ranges). It is an Irish independent perfume house managed by friendly owners. I just love how they set up their courtyard with buntings and pretty stalls for the occasion. They even put a cute purple bow on their dog to go with the theme!

If you’re ever in the area in July, it does make for a pleasant Summer afternoon. Especially as the harvest sale is located next to the Avoca‘s flagship store where you can have a bite and a little nosey around their shelves stocked with gorgeous crockery and beautifully-packaged cosmetics.

Dublin in Love (and clumsy thoughts of an expat)

Dublin in Love
Dublin in Love
Today’s the day Ireland gets to decide on same-sex marriage. The past few weeks Dublin has slowly morphed into a beautiful bird of paradise, her plumage showing off all the colours of the rainbow.
Exciting new street art pieces appear on walls, shops show their support in creative displays and Dubliners wear colourful accessories and badges. Dublin you’re beautiful when you’re in love.

I’ve been wanting to document this moment in Irish History ever since I was met with ‘Vote No’ posters outside my place a few weeks ago. Their hateful messages made me sick to my stomach and I couldn’t comprehend that they were even allowed in a public space. From then on, I decided to focus on the incredible display of love and creativity shown all over Dublin.

It’s a weird thing moving to Ireland when you come from Belgium where abortion and gay marriage have been legalised for decades (respectively 1990 and 2003). But then it taught me so much and I think (hope) I’ve grown as a human. For the first time, I was faced with people who would openly say they’re against such rights. And these people weren’t the ones I had imagined. I would go as far to say that some of them were free-spirited women. I think it’s easy to think when you live in a country where the vast majority is in favour of these rights that those who are not are simply monsters. Like it’s easy to think that ‘no-ers’ are all bat-shit crazy when you look at the ‘Vote No’ posters.
Ireland taught me something different. It doesn’t take a cruel heart to be against someone else’s right but just a different experience, a different emotional connection (or sometimes an absence of it). That’s all it is.
As humans, we base our opinions on experiences and on the emotions they create. And in a country where abortion is illegal and where homosexuals can’t marry, these experiences and emotions and the way they are discussed and taught are, in essence, different.

I’m not sure I’m making sense or sounding horrendously patronising, I don’t mean to, but these are the thoughts that have been going round in my head since the Savita tragedy (and the failed attempt at changing the Irish law on abortion).

Recently, those thoughts have been somewhat crystallised by the episode of This American Life podcast called ‘The Incredible Rarity of Changing your Mind‘ where the Los Angeles LGBT lab research send volunteers to talk to voters who are against gay marriage. It was eye-opening to hear voters’ thought process evolve after they made a personal connection with the matter. I really recommend a listen, food for thought, for sure!

I obviously hope with all my heart that today is going to bring us a yes but whatever happens, I’m optimistic as the past few weeks have opened a conversation that can’t be swept under the carpet anymore as so many now feel invested.

I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you Una, and for you Ireland.

Last Minute Gift Guide: Christmas Shopping in Dublin

I don’t know about you, but each year, i feel it’s the year of change. Every time November rolls around, I firmly tell myself, enough is enough, the Christmas shopping will start now and come december, I’ll be armed, beribboned and wrapped-ready for the holidays. Maybe I’ll even have a colour design and fancy handmade tags for the wrapping. And without fail, a few days before Christmas, my Santa’s sack holds nothing but a sad echo and I convince myself that newspaper is totally cool and edgy to wrap presents.
Well, here it is, the week before Christmas, 2014 was no different, not one name has been crossed off my list. Instead of banging my head against the wall in shame, I thought I would share a little gift guide with you in solidarity for all the last-minute shoppers out there. Believe me, I know how you feel. This list features items that I secretly covet but also some I love and use on a daily basis. Hopefully you’ll find something in there to fill a stocking or two. This post is also an invitation for you to check out some of the awesome shops in Dublin.

Please tell me, I’m not the only immature one who giggles at the sight of this cup.

Bewleys Christmas Chai tea (€2.99)
I normally have this little tradition of buying loose Christmas tea in a specialised shop every year, but I stumbled upon this box of Bewleys Christmas chai tea in my local supermarket a few weeks ago and decided to give it a go. It’s very much on the fruity side which is an interesting change from other Christmas tea offerings I’ve sampled before that were predominantly spicy. Basically, it’s like drinking mince pies. I’m completely hooked and plan to stock up to hold until next Christmas!

Bewley’s Café

Iittala votive (€22)
This cute little votive is totally on my Christmas wishlist. I keep seeing them on Scandinavian blogs peppered around perfect minimalist white decor and while this style is probably out of reach for little old messy me, I see this candleholder as a little piece of the nordic interior dream. And luckily, Dublin has a design shop for all things Scandi!

Inreda
Royal Hibernian Academy

Atlantic Aromatics rosewater (€7.95)
I have gone through bottles and bottles of this Irish organic rosewater and I can’t see myself stopping here. I love what it does to my skin, a few spritzes get it all smooth. I use it as a toner, sometimes make-up remover combined with an oil and it helps me to wake up in the morning. Also, if I need a little pick-me-up while working, it’s always within reach on my desk during the day. It’s fair to say I’m addicted to the stuff and I seriously couldn’t recommend it enough!

Nourish (6 shops are located in Dublin)

Mark’s Inc diary (€14.50)
I was browsing in Article a few weeks back and stumbled upon this Japanese stationary brand and fell in love. It’s very minimalistic and maybe later in the year I will miss polka dots and gold details but right now I feel like it’s been made for me. The layout, the size, the font, … it just works!

Dyflin candle (€35)
Dyflin is the Norse word for Dublin. This candle evokes the Viking past of the city with notes of juniper, birch and camphor. It is a unique scent and would make for a sweet present for someone who misses Dublin.

Damn Fine City by Annie Atkins (€60)
Not sure if it’s something that made the news outside of Ireland but there was a lot of talk this year that the Poolbeg chimneys should be destroyed. For anyone who’s never been to Dublin, you could say it is our double Eiffel towers. It is a recognisable landmark that can be spotted from anywhere upon the Dublin coastline. For me, they mean ‘home’ as they signal the end of the journey when I travel back to Ireland by ferry.
Amidst those talks, Annie Atkins designed this striking blue poster featuring them. You may remember I visited, earlier this year, the exhibition dedicated to her work on Wes Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel.
I don’t think you could get a cooler gift than this.

Savour Kilkenny Festival & #1000Feasts | co. Kilkenny

Kilkenny Day 1
Last month, I was super lucky to be invited along with a handful of Irish bloggers to a trip to discover the food and craft scene in Kilkenny. I had never been to the city, or the county for that matter before, my knowledge of Kilkenny city extended to ‘somewhere there is a castle‘ (which, in fairness, could apply to pretty much anywhere in Ireland) so this weekend ended up being the most perfect introduction one could dream of really. I have to say Kilkenny found a cosy warm little spot in my heart after two intense days of exploration and meeting the lovely people behind the local food and craft scene.
I thought I would reminisce with you what happened during those two days and I’m crossing my fingers that I manage to somewhat convey the warmth of this beautiful county through your screens.
Here is Day 1.

Kilkenny Day 1

On the first day, Dee from Green and Vibrant and Mag from a local trout farm welcomed our little group of bloggers in front of the castle (that castle!). The blogger tour was taking place as part of the #1000Feasts campaign (more on that later) and Kilkenny food festival Savour Kilkenny. After all the introductions were made, we had a little wander around the festival, smelling and sampling the best food of the county.
We then headed to listen to a talk on ‘War Stories from the Kitchen‘, an insight into the Irish restaurant business. It was an interesting peek behind the ‘kitchen curtain’.

Kilkenny Day 1
Wild mushroom gnocchi in the Bula bus #1000Feasts #kilkenny

Then all of a sudden, it was lunch time and we made our way to Billy Byrnes pub which shelters the Bula Bus in its backyard. A literal hidden gem.
The Bula Bus serves street food with foraged seasonal goods. I absolutely loved that take on the cuisine genre and the place oozes so much coolness, what with the double decker rescued from the Manchester public service and its street art makeover.
I had the wild mushroom gnocchi which were little mouthfuls of melting joy, accompanied with a side of sweet potato fries. The garlic sauce was so on point, it wasn’t even funny.

Kilkenny Day 1

Replete, we had a little mooch around the town. Kilkenny is quite the charmer what with the cute shop fronts and the river running in its heart.
I was looking forward to have a closer look around the castle and had my mind blown to find a breathtaking autumn wonderland within its walls.

Kilkenny Day 1
Kilkenny Day 1Kilkenny Day 1
Another surprise and a bit of a culture shock also awaited for me inside. The Irish Conker Championship was taking place that very day on the castle grounds. I had never heard of the practice before but I soon found out that it is actually a very popular game in Irish and English school playgrounds. I watched grownups hitting nuts on a thread for a while and felt that I may have missed out on something in my childhood.
Kilkenny Day 1
After this entertaining if not slightly surreal interlude, it was time to go back to Savour Kilkenny where we were to meet some of the new food producers on the county scene. I sampled some tasty cakes from Eadaoin’s Kitchen and chatted with the sparkly Joan from Joan and Bob’s Juicy Jams. Artist husband and wife have put their creativity into the business of jam-making, in every steps from the beautiful drawn label design to the surprising flavour combination. Can you think of something more decadent than putting Strawberry, Peach & Prosecco jam on your toasts for breakfast?
Kilkenny Day 1
The festival closed its doors and it was time for us to head to our accommodations to freshen up before dinner. I stayed in the Abbey House B&B, just next to the Jerpoint Abbey in Thomastown.
Dinner parties were hosted all over the county for the night of the #1000Feasts. The campaign had for goal to raise money for the building of a food hub in Thomastown. The place will serve as a school to train chefs but also provide education for healthy eating and growing with a community garden. This is an important project not only for the county but also for Ireland as a whole to improve and build upon their food destination status. The operation was a great success but the target has not been reached quite yet, so if you’re feeling generous, here is the link if you wish to donate for a great cause.

Kilkenny Day 1

My feast took place in a little cosy restaurant in Thomastown called Cafe Sol Bistro. For starter, I chose the plate of halloumi cheese and orange, the combination was actually incredible. I would have never thought of it! For the main, I had a courgette roast, it was as delicious as beautiful to look at. All the flavours came perfectly through without it being too seasoned or spicy. A mistake I found is often made with vegetarian dishes. I was really chuffed with my choice.

For the second part of the feast, we met again with Mag, she welcomed us into her home where we enjoyed a tasty slice of cake for dessert and lively chats. Her husband Ger even treated us to a little impromptu singing performance. And there it was, in the candle light glow, the infamous Irish hospitality which made the whole campaign a success and a night to remember for years and years to come.

 I will tell you all about day 2 next week so do come back for more awesome Kilkenny people and cute fluffy sheep – edit here is Day 2. Also do check out my fellow bloggers who were also present on the trip: Margaret, Janine, Elaine, Sadhbh and Billy.

The Night of 1000 Feasts | co. Kilkenny

1000feasts

Tomorrow I’ll be heading off to Kilkenny to attend the Night of 1000 Feasts. This very special night is part of the food festival Savour Kilkenny and will see homes, local community centres, restaurants and hotels all across the county gather friends and guests around a meal. The goal of the evening is to raise funds to transform an old school into a food education centre, training garden and community space in Kilkenny’s Town of Food, Thomastown.

The centre will help consolidate Ireland’s position as a food destination and attract cookery students from all over the country. I was super lucky to have been invited to the event and I literally cannot wait to discover Kilkenny and its the local delicacies but above all I’m looking forward to experiencing the Irish hospitality first hand. If you’d like to have a little peep into an Irish home and their cuisine, keep an eye open tomorrow for the hashtag #1000Feasts on social networks. I will be myself updating my twitter, facebook and instagram throughout the night (by the by I just created an instagram account, was I the last person on Earth to join?). So make sure you follow me as well as the bloggers present to the event to join in the fun and spread the good word about Irish food!

PS: We will also attend events and activities, part of the Savour Kilkenny festival during the day as well as Monday so keep your eyes peeled for that too!

5 Places in Dublin That Will Give You the Heebie-Jeebies

Halloween in Dublin

1. Halloween in The Suburbs

Halloween is a great time of the year to visit Dublin, there’s something about the gothic vibe that just works with the celebration. If you have kids (or not), I dare you to go trick-and-treating in one of Dublin’s residential areas. Maybe it’s because Halloween finds its roots in the Irish tradition but Dubliners have a knack for making their abodes look terrifying. I think the decorations especially suit the Georgian neighbourhoods what with the high ceilings and the infamous heavy doors.

Mount Jerome Cemetery

2. Edward Dycer Vault

Have you ever peeped through a vault’s door fearing for what your eyes will meet in the darkness? The Dycer Vault in Mount Jerome Cemetery is your worst nightmare coming true. Inside lies a staring skeleton with a twisted spine. He is said to be a relative of Edward Dycer, a veterinary surgeon who lived in Stephen’s Green in the early 19th century.

Read more on Mount Jerome Cemetery.

St Michan's crypts
3. St Michan’s Crypts

Underneath St Michan’s Church, you can access vaults where the air is so dry that their residents have been mummified. Bram Stoker himself visited the crypts when he was a child and the mummies left such an impression, he drew inspiration from them when he wrote Dracula.
If you’re nice enough, your guide might let you stroke a 650 year old mummy’s hand. Apparently, it brings good luck!

More information on St Michan’s Church (Picture courtesy of St Michan’s Church’s website – photography not allowed inside)

Bram Stoker Festival Dracula's Bride
4. Bram Stoker Festival

This weekend, the Bram Stoker Festival returns in Dublin for the third year straight and it promises to be a bloody good one! Along the street performances, horror film marathon and numerous literary talks that we now expect of the festival, a zip-line has been installed across the city so we can pretend to be bats gliding over Dublin. Two other events worth noting in your diary are the gothic-themed ball in the Irish Modern Museum of Art as well as the Underground Gothic taking place in the secret train tunnel under Phoenix Park!

Find out more about the events taking place this week-end.
Watch my video of last year’s festival.

5. The Crypt at Christ Church Cathedral

If you go in the crypt below Christ Church Cathedral, you will encounter a creepy (if not slightly hilarious) pair. A mummified cat and rat, affectionately nicknamed by the locals ‘Tom & Jerry’. They were found stuck in one of the organ pipes during a service in the 1860s. Legend has it that they got trapped while chasing each other. Time and perfectly dry air preserved this perennial cat and mouse’s friendship.

The Flower Carpet | Brussels

flower carpet brussels

Yesterday something quite special happened in Brussels. Something that only happens once every two years. Hundreds of thousands of petals have been laid out all day to form what is the largest flower carpet in the world. Until Sunday night, the carpet will brighten up the centre of one of the most beautiful squares in Europe (okay I might be biased here):  Grand Place. I remember the event being one of the highlights of my Summer as a kid and I’m a bit sad I won’t be there to witness it this weekend. Those pictures are from a couple of years ago but fortunately my mum sent me pictures of last night’s opening so it’s a bit like being back home for a bit.

The design of the carpet follows a different theme each time and this year, it celebrates the 50th year anniversary of  Turkish immigration in Belgium. The pattern is inspired by the intricate Persian carpets ‘kilims‘.

grand place flower carpetflower carpet close-up

The carpet is made of hundreds of thousands of begonia petals. The begonia proves to be the perfect flower for such a feat as it’s quite robust against bad weather and it doesn’t lose its vivid and colourful aspects under the bright sun. The tradition started in the 70s and lit many a Brusseleer‘s (aka Brussels’ inhabitant) heart with joy and pride.

I couldn’t recommend enough you go and see the flowery Grand Place with your own eyes, it is truly quite something to witness the serious grandeur of the square buildings that lasted many centuries come together with the bright, cheerful ephemerality of the carpet.

Also, every evening, a light and sound show will take place on the square to top up this giant flower cake.

Dublin Garden Festival 2014

This week-end, something really pretty is happening in Christ Church cathedral. The first Dublin Garden Festival has established its quarters there, “bringing the outside inside”. I actually never visited Christ Church before so when I saw the event’s programme, I thought what better time than now that the cathedral is all dolled up, filled to the brim with flowers, trees and shrubs.

The festival includes tips from gardening experts and personalities (Diarmuid Gavin will give a talk on Sunday), demos, awarded flower arrangement exhibitions, choirs and concerts. You can check the programme on the festival’s website for more information.

In the cathedral’s crypt, there is also an artisan market where I spotted beautiful wicker baskets (summer is always a good time to bring your inner Jane Birkin methinks) and luscious soy candles.

On the cathedral grounds stand a food market (free access) with your standard homemade and organic products as well as flower stalls. Surprisingly, there are also birds of prey on exhibition. I don’t think I’ve ever been so close to an eagle or an owl before.

There is also a petting zoo with lambs, a goat kid, a turkey, a piglet, guinea pigs, ducklings and rabbits. My festival experience was topped by some quality time spent with my homies (as seen in the above picture). It is quite possible that a few nudges were exchanged in the process.

VIDEO: Dublin blooms

bloom dublin

The garden festival Bloom is back this week so I thought I would reminisce with this little video I shot at last year’s event.
Located in Phoenix Park, Bloom makes for such a lovely day out. Whether you want to admire the outstanding garden designs, eat some delicious wholesome food or pick up gardening tips, I feel there is something for everyone. And don’t think you need to be a garden buff to enjoy the event, my gardening facilities extend to a windowsill and my non-existent green thumb murdered many a succulent; the gardening experts will gladly have a chat no matter what your level is. And well, if flowers and vegetables leave you indifferent, there’s always the food village. Loads of sampling action there! I may or may not be still dreaming about a pineapple chutney I tasted last year…

Also, super good news this year if you can’t make it to Phoenix Park, for the first time a pop-up version of the festival will come to the streets of Dublin! Bloom Fringe, as its name tells, will take place “on the edge” of Bloom with events all over Dublin such as tours to discover the city’s secret gardens, food trails, talks, pop-up green spaces, yoga classes,  etc… with the main Bloom Fringe garden on George Street. I personally look forward to the floral workshop in Powerscourt Centre the most but I’m also quite intrigued by the upcycling workshop, the herbal remedy class, the introduction to essential oils… and the seedbomb-making workshop sounds absolutely brilliant!

Take a look at the programme and see for yourself if something tickles your fancy.
