It’s no secret that we have the BIGGEST crush on Dublin city. Visually, physically, emotionally.

Any city steeped in history is aesthetically pleasing but Dublin really does go that one step further with its iconic red brick buildings, stunning architecture, gorge canals, famous statues, enormous river and general ride-ness.

Wrap it in Christmas lights and you’ve got some sight for one sight.

Why can’t it just be Christmas year round?
