I love Dublin, right? But I'm trying to think of things I love about Dublin. Like what makes it so good. So far I can only think of things like Lemon (I love Lemon), cycling out to Howth on a nice Sunday to the Farmer's Market, walking around town, Asbestos' "lost" stickers, Pat Ingoldsby and the Georgian houses.

What kind of things do you love about Dublin?

The sea. The sea. The sea. Howth Head and the walk back to town. The canals. Old man pubs. The little old school row house neighborhoods. The sirens but mostly because it reminds me I'm living in a foreign county. Sometimes, I forget.

Feeding the reindeer in the Phoenix park at Christmas and rolling down the Popes cross hill during the summer.
Pottering around town on the weekend and knowing that you'll probably run into someone you know in a minute.
Driving down knockmaroon hill.
Eating cakes and drinking tea on a bench along the canal.

Eh, didn't a kid drown in the strawberry beds a few weeks ago? Beautiful spot though.

I dont know if you're allowed but we've done it every Christmas Eve since I was born, they're really friendly but not so keen on men. We tell the kids they're Santa's reindeer, so they spend ages looking for one with a red nose to give the biggest carrot to.

Oh the Christmas live animal crib at the Mansion House! I stop before and after work (sometimes during lunch too) to see the animals. It's the only thing I like about Christmas.

walking through college green, summer drinking by the pav, dublin castle / chester beatty library, cafe crepe (beats lemon hands down!), seeing junkie's make shows of themselves around marlboro/abbey street, central bank goths (if they still exist), simon's place.

Stephen's Green in the autumn when the leaves turn colour. Best early in the morning on Saturday when no one is around. Iveagh Gardens when it's not closed for various nonsense during the summer.


Oh and not specific to Dublin but the half pint glasses that look like mini pints. Love when I get those.
