The magic of Dublin on a sunny Easter weekend - A photo story

Screen-Shot-2014-04-22-at-11.32.01

Last week we let the world know about a new direction we were heading by bringing on a photographer to help us capture this remarkable city of ours and bring it to life. Little did we know that he also had the power to bend the weather to his will delivering what is without question one of the nicest long weekends Dublin has ever seen. Caolan captured a short photo story from the past weekend and we think you'll agree that the weather and the people with Dublin as their canvas make this very special indeed...

Nobody saw this coming..

The sun exploded out of nowhere and helped change the outlook for the weekend

Hasty Plans

Had to be made on the fly..

While many

Just winged it...

Of dodge for a few days.

It was a time

To break out the spring / summer collections...

In iconic Dublin venues

With a coffee

On one of Dublin's best know sunshine corners.

But while many relaxed

Some had to work Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.30.44

The hardest jobs

But with beaming smiles. Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 11.31.22

A few

Rebelled

While some

Gave their feet a well earned rest

Or just enjoyed

The local wildlife.

While some stayed focused

On the journey ahead

The wiser generation

Just took it all in.

And as Monday came to a close

And we headed for home...

Pinching ourselves

Thinking of the long weekend gone by Screen Shot 2014-04-22 at 14.33.25

Some still had time

To soak up the last few rays

On what had to be..

The best weekend in Dublin for years.
