Hey Donna, Rathmines, Dublin 6


I should probably rename my blog, since I realised that I haven't written a Dublin review in almost... 5 months. I blame college and the fact that I don't eat out as much as I used to. However during the Christmas break I managed to try out some places that I am happy to recommend and that hopefully will make it to the blog soon.

24 Hours in Belfast

Mr. FFID and I spent a weekend in Belfast last year, during which we visited some great some spots that I shared in my A Weekend in Belfast: where to eat in drink article. But there was one place in particular that was closed when we visited that I've always wanted to try, which was a great excuse to go back to Belfast for a night between Christmas and the New Year. If you follow me on Instagram (@Frenchfoodieindublin) you probably know where I've been already but I thought that I'd share some of the most worthy addresses we tried out during our 24 hours in Belfast.

Hello 2018!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a lovely Christmas and are ready to tackle 2018. Minus a nasty flu, I had such a relaxing time and was spoiled by Santa. It's good to be back after a little blogging break though and I thought I'd use this 2017 summary / welcome 2018 article to give a little life update and also explain why in general I've been blogging less last year.

Christmas Gift Guide 2017

Ho Ho Ho! December has started and by the look of the streets of Dublin the Christmas madness has well and truly started. I'm here today to share a little Christmas gift guide on the suggestion of Mr. FFID  Santa, who needs a little bit of guidance this year. Like every year this is a mix of things I own, a personal wish list and things I think you'd like to get if you're a food lover. Hope you find some inspiration!

Glenlo Abbey Hotel & The Pullman Restaurant

While I don't often treat myself to a staycation, I do have a little list of fancy Irish hotels I'd love to try at some stage. Glenlo Abbey Hotel has been on this list ever since I realised that their restaurant was located in original carriages from the Orient Express.

Seville City Guide: What to See, Eat & Drink

A few years ago I spent a couple of days travelling by myself around Andalusia (Seville, Cordóba and Granada) and fell in love with this region of Southern Spain. So when Mr. FFID and I were invited to a wedding outside Malaga I planned the trip making sure we had a few extra days in Seville before the celebrations as I really wanted Mr. FFID to see what the city was like.
