Love Supreme, Portobello, Dublin 8

I have to confess, each time I walk around Portobello I get such a feeling of house envy, especially along the canal. It seems like a nice neighbourhood to live in and there are some lovely food options like the ever popular Bibi's café or the lovely restaurant Locks.

5 Years of Blogging

Bonjour! It's been a while, hey? I took what felt like a very long blogging break (my longest ever) and my blogiversary reminded me that it was time to get back to this little space.

I'm celebrating five years of FFID today. I read somewhere that most blogs are abandoned after 3 months so it feels like it's an achievement that FFID has lasted this long.

The Most Fun Restaurant in Dublin: Token

I grew up with three brothers, all of whom were a good few years older than me. One of them was particularly good at spending any money he earned on the latest video game, so playing video games was a big part of my childhood. In particular I was a sucker for football, tennis and fight games.
