We've known for a long time how great Dublin is and it seems the international reputation of our city is growing all the time.
For evidence of that, we need look no further than this article by Vogue Magazine, no less. The piece, which was published yesterday and written by Mosha Lundstrom Halbert, interviewed 15 Dublin women to give their readers an idea of the delights that await them in our fair city.
Well-known habitants of our city like Anna Cosgrave and Laura O'Grady were quizzed about what makes the city what it is and why they are so proud to call it home.
Mosha opens the piece by stating that Baile Átha Cliath has:
"...shed its old-school party-town reputation to become an innovation-centric authority.
From a thriving digital sector (housing the European headquarters of many U.S. tech companies, from Facebook to Google and Airbnb) to its acclaimed fashion designers, chefs, artists, and craftsmen, the city has never been quite so cool."
Oh, Dubliners are cool? We hadn't noticed.
The feature moves on to ask each interviewee about the favourite spots in the capital from cafés to live music venues, favourite shops, day trips and much more.
The article is well worth a few minutes of your time and sure to give you the urge to get off the sofa and head into town to take in all it has to offer.
