Dublin delights

Last week one of my best friends got married in Dublin. This meant I was lucky enough to spend 5 days in the wonderful city. Today I’m going to share with you some of my outfits, and some of the fun things myself and my frineds got up to whilst we were there.

We arrived on thursday afternoon. After dumping our cases in the thoroughly nice hostel we headed to temple bar to check out Dublin’s pubs.

We started off with dinner in a lovely pub just off temple bar. They were playing fab live music in there. Me and my friends made the most of posing in the quirky settings.

Then we headed off to make the most of Dublin’s bars. In my case a lot of Irish ale and citder were consumed.

This led to me looking like this in the morning.

This also meant i seemed to find it too difficult to dress myself, hence help was required with petticoats!

On friday it was ever so chilly but we still made the most of wandering round the city and checked out things such as the art gallery and a number of the churches and cathedrals.

Despite the fact we are all 22 and 23 we larked around jumping outside trinity college!

On friday evening we we to the pub across the road for dinner. Another tasty meal was had!

Saturday was wedding day. The wedding was just outside the centre of Dublin, and the castle where the reception was held was absolutely stunning.

With one of my oldest friends Caro. We will celebrate our 20 year anniversary of knowing each other next year.

In typical Irish fashion we partied until the we small hours of the morning.

My dress for the day was a mid 1950s Horrockses with amazing scalloped hem. I wore this with a pair of 50s cream court shoes and carried a beaded 30s handbag.

On Sunday we had quite a chilled day and spent the morning wandering around Dublin flea market that has a really cool vibe to it. Lots of bargains to be had!

On Sunday night we went to a stunning restaurant in the city.

On monday it was time to go home, but we made the most of the day with a trip to the guinness store house. An informative day, and a tasty guinness to finish it off. The view from the guinness bar was amazing!

Big thanks for my gorgeous friend Natatsha for getting married. She looked so stunning on the day, it was completely emotional, but at the same time lovely to see the first wedding of a group of friends I’ve mostly known since I was 11. Also much love to the lovely girls I spend 5 days wandering around Dublin with. It was great to have a few days of fun with some of my favourite people : )
