This week we decided to profile Blackrock for our city spotlight, it's a part of Dublin we love because despite being a short drive from town it really does feel relaxed and removed from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.
The Blackrock Market is always worth checking out for finding all sorts of treasures and curios, but to be honest... The main reason we head to Blackrock is to pick up a bag of the best fish and chips in Dublin from The Fish Shop. Nothing beats picking up a coffee from Bear Coffee and going for a walk through the park along the sea to work up an appetite for some fish and chips!
