33 Things You'll Always See On A Sunny Day In Dublin
Sun's out, guns out
We all know sunshine in Ireland is rare af.
But when it eventually does start splitting the rocks every crayture on the island comes out of hibernation to catch a few rays.
Here are the 33 things you see around our fair city on a sunny day. Unfortunately there are some things you can't un see...
I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! But seriously, 99s everywhere.
2. Guns, Buns ‘n’ Tums
You do you.
Walking barefoot, in flips flops, sandals, even crocs. Put ‘em away for the love of God.
4. Shirtless lads. Everywhere.
Is there really a need guys? C'mon, save it for Maga.
5. Snapchat stories telling you that it’s sunny
I can see the sun. You can see the sun. I don’t need your snapchats.
6. The colour of the Liffey
Who knew it wasn't black?!
7. Dodgy fake tan
Is that a rare skin disease? Nope, just a bottle of Sally Hansen gone wrong.
We've all been there... the struggle is real.
8. Cans in the Pav
Sneaking in your cans and praying that it's the can of the day.
9. People jumping off the 40 foot
The most popular adrenaline rush within The Pale. Freezin.
Worn by pasty skinned zombies with their eyes blinking like its the first time they've seen the light of day all year.
11. A line outside Teddys
Dat queue doe.
The wait ain't easy but it all pays off. Deep breaths.
12. Websites telling you that it’s sunny
13. Backwards caps
Are not, and never will be, cool. Comprende?
14. Slabs of cans
16. DIY beer gardens and pavement cafés
Sure throw a few tables and chairs out the door, be grand!
17. Sceptics wearing coats and carrying brollies
And with our, um, 'erattic' weather you can’t reeeeally blame them.
18. Iced coffees
Because we still need our caffeine hit but wanna avoid the sweats. First world problems.
The sun has been out for a whole ten minutes, HOW are you burnt already?!
20. Sunglasses being worn as hairbands
You know it's summer when you're dusting off the sunnies.
Everyone and their ma has brought the pooch out for the day. Mind yer ankles.
22. Those dodgy zip off trousers (that shouldn’t exist)
Shorts or trousers. Make your choice.
Capri pants are also just as bad. No, no, don’t try to justify, we’re not listening.
23. Dad bods
We'll say no more.
It's all fun and games until it hits you in the eye. Or gets caught in a tree.
25. Disposable BBQs
Charred burger? Check. Squirt of ketchup? Check. First degree burns? Check.
26. Ice cream vans
Ahhhh that wave of nostalgia you get when you hear the sweet – though ever so slightly terrifying – melody of your local ice cream van.
27. People in wetsuits jumping into canals
A quick dip in the canal to cool down on a scorcher.
Nice to see the U18's Irish Olympic Diving Team practising backflips in wetsuits at the canal in Rialto!— Niall Farrell (@FarrellOfLaughs) May 12, 2016
28. Study dates in the park
Nothing quite like that sweet escape from the library on a hot day. Aaahhhhhh.
29. Lunch dates in the park
Get. A. Room.
So much PDA in Dublin I could vom— Joj Kaye (@jojkaye) November 16, 2015
31. People tanning themselves in bizarre/inappropriate places
Henry Street? Really? Put your clothes back on fool.
32. Cold tourists
Because 19° really isn't that hot out there in the real world.
Only in Dublin...
