places to go

The excitement of this festive season can sometimes overtake the real meaning of Christmas. We can get caught up in shopping for presents and finding the perfect dress for the Christmas party, but at the end of the day, this holiday is all about thinking of those you love.

Christmas can be a very lonely time for many, so SuperValu is set to help address this by supporting ALONE and raising funds to support people who are suffering from loneliness this Christmas.

SuperValu will open its special All Things Considered Christmas Café on 41 South William St for two days from November 23 to 24,  from 10 am to 8 pm.

Bring a friend along who you may not have seen for some time and enjoy some festive treats, choosing from a menu of Christmas favourites from the Specially Sourced wine range, SuperValu Christmas bakery range, sandwiches and Signatures Tastes meats and cheese platters with proceeds from the menu going to ALONE.

In addition, with SuperValu at the heart of 217 communities, this year they are asking their shoppers to Consider Taking Time to Catch up with someone in their community who may be lonely this festive season and drop around to have a chat and cuppa along with a mince pie.

A 0.20c donation from all packs of Signature Taste mince pies will go to ALONE. Retailers around the country will also be hosting local coffee and mince pie mornings and wine and cheese evenings from Friday, November 23 to  Saturday, December 1 to raise further funds and awareness for the charity.

It feels like there is a Starbucks on the corner of every street in Dublin’s city centre. The popular American coffee chain is taking over the Big Smoke, and overshadows the plethora of independent coffee shops that are available in the city.

Dublin is full of unique and welcoming coffee shops that serve rich coffee, drool-worthy cakes and are just that little bit more warming and special.

There is a cafe on Dawson Street that is without a doubt one of my favourite places in Dublin. It’s my go-to place for coffee dates and the perfect spot to relax after a hectic day at work.

The Bestseller cafe is bound to be your new favourite place to drink gallons of coffee and catch up with your nearest and dearest.

What makes the spot so appealing is the atmosphere. It’s soothing and relaxed and reminds me of some kind of quirky library.

The Bestseller feels like my second home at this stage. The staff are attentive and don’t heckle you to leave once you gulp the final bit of coffee in your mug.

It’s a spot in the heart of Dublin that manages to capture the real joy of the city. The stacks of classic novels remind you of the city’s history. The warm mugs of coffee make you feel as snug as a bug. The constant chatter of your fellow customers creates an electric, but calm atmosphere that you’ll quickly become addicted to, just like the delicious Badger and Dodo coffee on sale there.

There is nowhere I’d rather be on a rainy Sunday afternoon in Dublin than The Bestseller. Curling up in one of the cozy armchairs with a book is one of the greatest ways to unwind in the city that has forgotten how to switch off.

Ireland may be famed for its drink culture but have you really experienced the best bars in our little country yet?

Vintage Cocktail Bar, Co. Dublin
Vintage Cocktail Bar in Temple Bar is a pretty cool place to go for your cocktails. True to its name, the bar is a throwback to the golden age of the forties and you will feel you have stepped back in time. Grab some food and take your pick from the extensive cocktail menu.

De Bara Folk Club, Co. Cork
De Bara Folk Club is located in Clonakilty and is self proclaimed as Ireland’s No. 1 Folk Club. There is live music everyday and a mix of traditional, rock’n’roll and folk music can be heard there.

Foxy John’s, Co. Kerry
Foxy John’s in Dingle is a pretty unusual pub to say the least. It is not just a pub as it doubles up as a hardware store. Random maybe, but it comes in handy if your bike gets a flat on the way there.

O’Connell’s, Co.  Galway
O’Connell’s in Galway is full of character and reatains all its original features. you can get lost in cubby holes while scanning through the historic photos on the wall. It’s one for the whiskey lovers among us.
