Woman About (Dublin) Town Weekend

Here are a few photos that I took, and things that I done, while wandering around town.

I think Dublin’s Street Art scene is definitely coming into its own. I love walking around corners and being surprised by art.

Just off New Market Square.

After a walk through Stephen’s Green I decided to take the tour of ‘The Little Museum of Dublin’. I had heard great things about it and I was not disappointed. A tour is a must, so as to get the most out of the collection, which has been donated by members of the public.

Afterwards I had a lovely glass of red wine and an espresso downstairs in ‘Hatch & Sons’. I love this place. My sister Emma’s boyfriend Conor, who is a fan of his own ‘Man About Town Days’ introduced me to it and their baked eggs.

Another lovely spot for a tea/coffee break is the Le Petit Parisien Cafe on Dame St.

Here you can be sitting in Paris while looking out into Dublin.

To finish off my weekend I went to The Brocante Market in The Dublin Food Co-Op.

The Brocante Market is held on the 3rd Sun of every month from 11.00 – 17.00.

Here you can find pre-loved furniture and homewear, second-hand, refurbished, antique and hand-crafted stuff for your house, kitchen and garden.

Another Dublin market that I love is The Dublin Flea Market, which is also held in the Dublin Food Co-Op. This takes place on the last Sunday of every month.

The Dublin Food Co-Op is situated at No. 12 Newmarket Square.

When up in town I always like to pop in here and light a candle.

A peace and quiet oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of Grafton St. & South William St.
