Calling all Dublin foodies!

The Happy Pear is setting up shop in the capital next week and our mouths are watering already.

David and Stephen Flynn, brothers and founders of the health food brand, will open their flagship café and food store in Clondalkin, Dublin 22, on Monday July 3.

The new development will be located in the new Round Tower Visitor Centre in Clondalkin village and is set to feature a terraced dining area, a public garden along with exhibition and gallery spaces.

The brothers announced the opening date on their Facebook page earlier today.  

Speaking previously about the exciting news, David and Stephen said:

"This is a really great development and this collaboration is a very exciting move for our business. We’re really delighted to be bringing The Happy Pear to this incredible new centre, which is rich in history and culture and will provide a real focal point for the village."

"We can’t wait to open the doors and meet everyone from the community, and of course breakfast is on us – we’ll continue our long-standing tradition of providing free, organic porridge every morning in the new cafe."

The Happy Pear cafe is also located in the Shoreline Leisure Centre, Mill Road, Greystones, Co. Wicklow, and their products are available in selected supermarkets nationwide or online at thehappypear.ie



Calling all Marilyn Monroe fans!

There is an amazing pad for sale in Clondalkin, and it's interiors are absolutely bonkers, in the best possible way.

Every available surface is painted a different, bright hue, and Marilyn Monroe's iconic smile gleams down from every wall. 

From the colourful, leopard print sofas to the polka dot toilet, the princess pad screams fun. 

And as for the princess's boudoir? It's decked out in pink ruffles, walls and carpets.

Any Marilyn bed covers, of course. 

Even the hallway is emblazoned with the classic Hollywood star's face, and rainbow chandeliers hang from every light fixture. 

The living room is the epitome of a Barbie dream house, with pink and purple fabric covering every surface, and ornate cushions and decorations in every free space. 

The kitchen seems a little more muted, with modern, white fittings.

That is, until you notice the sun bed in the middle of it.

According to auctioneer Ray Cooke's site, the three bedroom end of terrace property is located in the quaint cul de sac of Harelawn Drive, Dublin 22, within arm's reach of Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and the M50 Motorway.

"No. 44 is immaculately presented and boasts quirky decor throughout," reads the ad.
