You’d think after living in Ireland for twenty-four years, I’d have learned by now to keep an umbrella on me at all times! Over the weekend I got caught in epic downpours on three separate occasions. My hair still hasn’t fully recovered… 😛
Rain aside, it was a pretty great couple of days. The highlight for me was when we stopped by Peploe’s on Stephen’s Green for a not-so-light lunch. In the mood to indulge, we went all out and had the full three courses. Between the tempting starters, hearty mains and luscious desserts, we could barely move for the rest of the afternoon. It was our first time there and we really loved it. Not only was the food delicious; the décor was pretty and elegant, the staff were friendly and there was just a really good atmosphere about the place. Oh and they have a proper hairdryer in the toilets (pretty useful when you walk in, soaked to the skin from yet another rainstorm!).
