Harold's Cross is a real treasure.
Boasting some of the best food, coffee, shopping and parks in the city – you'd never be hard pushed for something to admire in this dreamy neighbourhood.
We decided to do a round up of the best of the best to show you why we really, really love the place.
So, here goes nothing...
1. The woman who pushes around her dog in a pram
Worth the move alone.
2. Food, glorious food
Oh, and have you ever been to HX46 for brunch? Well, you should. Now.
3. Trinket shops
Harold's Cross is absolutely filled with antique treasure troves, filled with absolute bargains.
Harold's Bazaar is a firm favourite, supplying everything from gorgeous mirrors to perfect wardrobes to bone china tea cups that your mum would never allow you drink out of.
Perfect for a Saturday rummage.
4. The best gym in Dublin
We've written about Your Fitness before, and its ideal location, perfectly laid out gym and deadly instructors – but we're taking this time to confirm that it is 100% the best of the best. And you can easily see for yourself...

5. Coco Chinese
It's brought me through some tough times. Long may it szechuan.
6. Gorjjjjj beauty salons
Harold's Cross must be the original home of the beautiful people, as there are so many spectacular salons, beauticians and deadly hairdressers in such a small, tight-knit area.
It's the bomb.
7. The Harold's Cross Festival
Yes, such wonders exist.
The festival includes everything from table quizzes to writing workshops to a maypole in Harold's Cross Park. AND you can go without even having to pay €300 to sleep in a tent and wake up next to a muddy boot.
8. Harold's Cross Park
A teeny glimpse of country life in a city setting.
Also, the ultimate place to perch and dog-spot. If you're lucky, you may even spot the enormous Irish Wolfhound.
You'll know him when you see him...
9. A village feel, right next to the city centre
Harold's Cross boasts a chilled out, dreamy setting, just moments away from the city centre.
You can buy a pint for less than a fiver, have a party without fear of neighbours complaining, and sleep peacefully knowing no one is going to chunder on your doorstep.
10. Les Fleurs, Artisan florist
The aesthetically pleasing discretionary expenditure you never thought you needed.
Look how prettyyyyyyy...
11. The giant Irish Greyhound
12. And finally, the Bikram Yoga Dublin centre
Prone to being sweaty more often than not?
Well, why not put it to good use at Bikram Yoga Dublin in Harold's Cross, where sweating is actually encouraged.
Get bendy and do your body some good with their innovative classes.
Gwan. Treat yo'self.
