Travelling The World, Close To Home
One of the great joys of touring is exploring places close to home that I’ve never spent proper time in before – such as Dublin, a vibrant city in which I’ve just finished playing two shows. From a daylong detour to Wicklow (when they say the Irish countryside has the most gorgeous views, they’re not lying) to meals and pints all over town, these have been some of the most welcoming, warm and lively days of my time on the road. Below are just a few of the Dublin spots I fell in love with, followed by our incredible Issue 014 – don’t miss our story with Beata Heuman, the first in a new Service95 series – The Way We Work – in which creatives will tell us about what inspires their work life.
- Grogans – for a pint and a toastie, it cannot be beaten.
- Hugo’s – the chicest little food spot right off St Stephen’s Green.
- Fish Shop – if you like seafood even a bit, this is your new go-to.
- Toners Pub – this has been around since 1734, and it’s exactly what I expected when I thought of a traditional Irish bar.
- Peruke & Periwig – a cocktail list broken down by genre of music? I dare you not to be intrigued…
