Sunday Times Travel magazine Instant Escapes: Dublin

Everybody loves Dublin. The live music, the Guinness, the craic… Few cities have quite the presence of the Irish capital, quite the good spirits.

I’ve been a regular visitor to Dublin for years and have lost count of the number of lovely days and, erm, lively nights I’ve had in the city. So I was delighted to be able to share to share some of my Dublin favourites with readers of the Sunday Times Travel magazine recently.

Check out my Instant Escapes guide to a weekend in Dublin.

Big Weekend in Dublin: feature for the Sunday Times

I’ve been to Dublin dozens of times and am a big fan of the Irish capital.

This year is a big one for Dublin, with the city holding Design Hub status for 2015, and firmly looking forward after the boom and bust of the Celtic Tiger. On my most recent visit I found plenty of creative energy, a much-improved dining scene (with plenty of great steak and seafood!) and, of course, the best pint of Guinness anywhere.
