2014 has been a crazy year for Lovin Dublin, this site has evolved from Niall's little food blog to an online publication with a team of 8 people working hard to bring you the best news, food reviews, events and social commentary in the country. We decided to pull together the 10 most popular posts of 2014 so if you missed them before, you can catch up on them now. I guarantee you won't guess the most popular post...
Love or hate 'em, you want to know where they're hanging out, eating and drinking. Whether this is because they have the finger on the pulse or because you want to avoid them I am not quite sure...
While this went up as an April Fools Day post, the fact that it steadily kept a significant amount of traffic throughout the year leads me to believe this is a more pressing concern than we originally anticipated. Go figure.
We were all curious to see who made the list. Would we know them? What were they wearing? Why weren't we on the list?! We shouldn't be surprised that our favourite UFC fighter, Conor McGregor, made the top of this inaugural post!
There are some amorous rogues amongst you (data doesn't lie), and you were more than interested to read where the top 10 places to pull in the city were!
We're just surprised this isn't further up the list as Dubliners are crazy for brunch. If it doesn't come with a side of home cooked beans, Bloody Marys and handcut chips you don't want to know about it!
We truly are a city of sandwich connoisseurs. We can't remember a time before pulled pork and sourdough bread, we shudder to even imagine a world in which homemade cabbage 'slaw' is no longer a thing. Just as well there are tonnes of savage delis to choose from!
I was initially surprised by this, but on reflection when you consider the rate at which Tribeca et al are pumping out chicken wings every night of the week, it's not that surprising at all.
This is your one stop shop for Dublin's most incredible eats. If you make one New Year's resolution, it should be to eat and drink your way through this list.
This one doesn't surprise us too much, if you can't take pleasure in the simple things in life (namely burgers) then what can you take pleasure in?
No matter how much you protest, the analytics don't lie. Dubliners are obviously mad for a cup of hipster heaven and if you haven't tried it, you need to get your booty down to Kapf to try some legal green cocaine for yourself!
