Suspended Coffees & Caring For Your Fellow Man

I initially saw this story making it’s way around facebook (and coming from a facebook page) but it obviously gained a bit of traction and was covered in the Independent a few days ago. Or perhaps it was vice versa. Sometimes it’s hard to know when to give money to someone who’s homeless, even if you do have spare change. I choose to give to buskers over those begging – no matter how unlikely or…

Dublin Coffee Culture – The Fumbally and Tamp & Stitch

Dublin coffee culture is changing. I’m an avid coffee lover and although i don’t know everything about it i know what i like and spent a bit of time in Australia working as a barista. I have two new favourite places for coffee in dublin. And i think they’re getting busier all the time so they probably don’t need me writing about them, but just in case you haven’t been yet. The first is the…

Things to Do in Dublin Tonight 8 May 2012

Marley the Film – Review – Peace, Love & Unity

So, much to my disappointment ‘Marley’ was not the prequel to Marley & Me but it is nevertheless worth seeing. There’s lots of dead legends and i think i have preconceived notions about who they were, often based on the very little i know about them. I used to think i was intuitive person but have slowly come to realise i like to combine massive generalisations with a vivid imagination. So learning more is always…

Best Places To Eat in Dublin – La Dolce Vita

The Queen of Tarts in Dublin, which has two locations, has become famous for their good food, amazing cakes, beautiful atmosphere and sweet atmosphere. But next door the the Cow’s Lane Queen of Tarts is an inconspicuous looking restaurant called La Dolce Vita. There is nothing striking about it’s exterior next to the bright red busy-ness of Queen of Tarts, but as soon as you walk in the door it smells like great Italian cheese…
