Some months ago, I went to Dublin for the first time for the blog travel blog Fantasiresor and made a small travel guide. I had read about the friendly spirit of the city and the beautiful landscapes but it totally blew me off my feet, I loved it! The people were just the nicest, most easygoing ever and the city was so exciting, full of creative energy.
There was suberb graphic design everywhere, from the street signs of small local business to beautifully layouted posters and restaurant menus, a possible outcome of companies like Google, Apple, Amazon och Facebook having their offices (and creatives) nearby, taking on challenges both on a digital and grassroot level. Dublin is actually the nr 1 tech hub in Europe, here’s a sweet map of where the offices are located in the city center if you feel like some millenial sightseeing.
We went to see the beautiful coastline and the infamous James Joyce tour one of the days. Pictured above is the genius french travel blogger Julie Sarperi of Carnet de Traverse, be sure to check out her blog if you love breath-taking photography.
I stayed at The Dean Hotel and it was just the loveliest experience, I’m getting back to this place in a separate post (because it deserves it obviously).
If you love beautiful house fronts with personal, quirky doors, this is the city for you! There is even a hashtag called #doorsofdublin which says something about the supply.
It’s very Diagon Alley all over the place, just sayin’.

If you read in Swedish, there are three posts on this city for you at Fantasiresor. To do in Dublin, The food & city and The Dublin oastline. If not, the photos tell quite alot about the city – if you think about going, I strongly recommend it!
My 3 top tips for a Dublin visit:
*Visit Teelings Whisky Distillery
*Have lunch at Super Miss Sue, then stroll the neighbourhoods.
*Stay at The Dean Hotel ❥
