Hello everyone! How is everyone enjoying NYE? I am currently on a trip to Dublin and celebrating it there with a group of friends :-D Love this HUGE red Christmas ribbon on the Clerys department store on O'Connell Street! (Love the sale signs even more though ;-) ) The hotel we are staying in is the Academy Plaza Hotel. Definitely recommend it! Affordable rooms and great service are always a good combo!
When we arrived the first thing we went to see was Trinity College, Ireland's oldest university, founded in 1592. Notable people who studied there are Jonathan Swift, Oscar Wilde, Bram Stoker, and - more recently - Jack Gleeson (King Joffrey on Game of Thrones :-P). More specifically, I wanted to visit the Old Library and the Book of Kells exhibit, but unfortunately, both were closed during the entire holiday. SOOO bummed about that! I hate it when that happens!
Luckily the next stop was in fact open for visitors, so we could take a look inside Dublin Castle, the centre of British rule in Ireland for more than 700 years. To keep warm I was wearing a soft pink cashmere sweater and a faux shearling black coat.

The inside of the castle (the seat of the Viceroy of Ireland) was very beautifully decorated and also still very festively! Below pictures of the Ladies Drawing Room and two of the ceremonial rooms.
After that we took a stroll through the infamous Temple Bar district, with some of the most ' Irish' pubs imaginable. Don't they look adorable?!
Wishing you all a very festive New Year's Eve!
P.S. If you're looking for me, I'll be here!
