Mon 20.06 - Aungier Street Pizza
Dublin is a city that keeps growing and evolving day after day. You miss one week and you discover that a new and super cool place has popped out from nowhere. And from a simple idea came the ultimate place for angry, impatient people: the 60 second pizza. The pizza, assembled under your desirous eyes, is cooked in a giant wood-fired oven. In fact one of the ideas under this place comes from the founder Michael Ryan who said: “I really like that interactive element of it. You’re eating with your eyes, before you even get the pizza in front of you”. If you want to know more have a look here (Dublin Pizza Company).
Tue 21.06 - j2 grill & sushi
I had a lovely girls' night out last week and for this special occasion we choose this sushi place. I could dedicate an entire blog just to Pizza places or to Sushi places and j2 grill & sushi would be definitely part of it. Favourite Points: view on the river, big walls of glasses, food really fresh and good, which mainly comes from Ireland or organic producers, friendly staff. And to properly finish your meal try the desserts that are very tasty! Have a look here.
Wed 22.06 - St. Patrick’s Cathedral
You can’t leave Dublin without having visited the St. Patrick’s Cathedral. This is the largest Cathedral In Ireland and it’s an important place for pilgrimage. Founded in 1191, it is one of the few buildings left from Medieval Dublin that still preserves its aura of authenticity. The cathedral is also very famous for its choir that still performs daily during school terms. You can discover more about it or simply buy the tickets here
