Remembering my shopping day in Dublin - hard to believe its already been a whole week since I left....My day began on O' Connell Street with the Spire on a grey overcast day that was slightly chiller and it seemed to be just on the cusp of raining – perfect Dublin weather!
….Henry Street stopping to check out my favourite clothes shops in the Jervais shopping centre and picking up a couple of new basic tops. Next up I wandered across the Ha’penny Bridge and through Merchant’s Arch in Temple bar – one of my favourite routes through the city from the North to the South side.
Stopped to meet up with a friend for lunch in the Science Gallery before strolling back towards the shopping area through Trinity College Dublin
Noticed that the Molly Malone statue was gone – she’s been removed from the street from safe keeping during nearby construction work…..the one time I decide to be a tourist in my home city!
Stopped for some carmelised brown bread icecream – this is no way I can describe how this tasted – it sounds weird but tasted delicious!
Headed up grafton street and picked up some M&S cookies and popped them into the handbag to eat with the family later on
Had to stop in This Is Knit where I came away with not one but two skeins of beautiful Irish wool
Followed by a slow retracing of my steps back towards the North Side of the city, stopped at random to just soak up all the sights and the atmosphere where I caught a bus home for dinner with the family.
It might not sound like much but this was one of the best days of my trip. Dublin I missed you.
