    Light of Evening Lissadell

    Lissadell has been in the news a lot the last couple of days. As someone who has grown up walking the estate its sad to see the way things come to pass. However, the controversy has not stopped it being one of the most breathtaking locations in Ireland. Here’s a picture of my very favourite …

    Brooks & Co

    Baggot Street in Dublin has always had a special place in my heart, not only because it is a beautiful boulevard but because it is THE very first street I lived on in Dublin. It’s got it all- Georgian grandeur, a sweep of Parisian-style trees, cafes, banks, skate-boarding locations and the odd little curiosity shop …

    From Sahara to Sligo…

    If these boots could talk they would tell quite a tale! They’re handmade with real pieces of magic Moroccan carpet. I bought them in 2003 on a backpacking trip I took with my best friends. A journey that has many a funny story I can tell you! One of our favourite pit-stops in Morocco was …

    The Soda Syphon

    This gorgeous 1930s style soda syphon was saved (by me) when we sold my Granny’s house. I’ve been hanging on to it for far too long now and reckoned it would be perfect for my Dublin Flea Market stall. I liked it because it reminded me of another more sophisticated age. I could just imagine a …

    Bibi’s Cafe

    Get thee to Bibi’s cafe! The prettiest, most inviting cafe in all of Dublin. Having just returned from London I was feeling withdrawal symptoms from my favourite French cafe La Bouche on Broadway Market but Bibi’s has more than comforted. This haven to French meets Irish style was created by Maisie and Petria Lenihan of …

    Teddy’s

    Teddy’s is the last of the old-school ice-cream joints in Dublin/Dun Laoighaire. A must on a visit to the pier even if the evil winds are blowing in off the Irish sea. I captured these two ladies with my Lomo camera catching up on a good auld gossip.  Deck chairs, freezing cold ice-cream and freezing …
