We all know that Dublin is a very scenic place, chock full of lots of lovely tourists sites to look at and bask in their glory.
But it’s also home to some sights that aren’t there every day, and if you so happen to witness one, you count your lucky stars that you were present for such beauty.
If you’ve seen any of these sights, then you’ll know what I’m talking about:
1. An empty Luas
Picture it; you’re standing in the rain and you’ve been waiting 10 minutes for your Luas home. It finally arrives, and lo and behold, it’s empty. Bliss.
2. A restocked Deli counter
Ah, the choices. Roll or wrap? Plain or spicy? Butter or Mayo?
3. A busy barge
When the sun shines, there’s no where else you’d rather be. When we’re looking after the area, that is.
4. A sunset over the Liffey
It makes the walk home from work that bit easier when you have a view like that.
5. The Brown Thomas Christmas window
When the usually ridiculously lavish window displays arrive, that means Christmas has arrived.
6. Spaces on Dublin Bike racks
The relief when you know you can drop off your bike, and not have to wander around looking for a spot.
7. A quiet Boojum
You can order your burrito and eat it in peace. A rare treat, that.
8. A heated smoking area
Necessary for an outdoor drinking sesh, even a casual one. Our favourite? The Long Stone.
9. Tourists wandering around confused
To be fair we only enjoy this for a second, before it gets intensely infuriating.
10. “2 for 1” signs
Dublin can be expensive at time, so these signs are a treat. For ANYTHING. A personal favourite is Pygmalion’s version. Pornstar Martinis FTW.
11. No queues outside Bunsen
Perhaps the rarest sight of all.
12. A Penneys sale
As if our all-time favourite shop could get even better (read: cheaper), when we see those signs in the windows, our purse and our hearts go a-flutter.
13. People slipping on ice
It’s all fun and games until you get on RTÉ slipping and become a nation-wide memory.
14. Landing at Dublin airport
But when it comes down to it, our favourite sight is our fair city after having been away. There’s nothing like landing back in Dublin town.
