It’s not often we watch a video about Dublin that makes us feel an awful lot better about our capital city. They’re usually over-filled with ‘pretty’ sunsets and unimaginative shots of the same old spots instead of showing people the true day-to-day happenings of the city. However, The New York Times has changed all that. They spent 36 hours in Dublin recently and have managed to beautifully capture the true, modern-day Dublin in a mere five minutes.
Hitting hotspots such as Fallon & Byrne, The Green Hen, Brother Hubbard and Against The Grain they succeed in giving the viewer a true sense of how Dublin has developed in recent years. We’re delighted to see someone focus on the independent restaurants and bars which are almost single-handedly rebuilding the city after it was devastated by the recession. We’ll excuse their visit to the Guinness Storehouse because in fairness, it’s a pretty amazing place.
