10 Things Dublin Has Taught Me



1. Better hungover than heartbroken. The latter takes longer to heal. // 2. Do not look for love on Tinder. It's a romance-is-dead-app. Don't ask. // 3. The river is dirty. The canal is dirty. Irish Sea is dirty. Atlantic, by all means. If you insist on going for a swim, go West! // 4. White pudding tastes better fried in coconut oil. Just don't say it out loud because it sounds so fucking pretensious. // 5. Conor McGregor is what I call the lovechild of a knacker and a hipster, epitomizing a new concept of hybrid that can stereotype both sides of the Liffey. // 6. Tell me your favourite pub, and I'll tell you who you are. // 7. Guinness is the new black. Maybe it's lightyears from being your favourite drink, but there will always be that one perfect, fresh pint that would make you change your mind, even if temporarily. // 8. Smoked bacon > unsmoked bacon. Same goes for salmon if it's breakfast time. // 9. High heels and Temple Bar will never be friends. Ever. // 10. No matter what, ALWAYS carry cash! Either you're stuck in a taxi going from out of service atm to out of order atm or in a pub where cards are simply not accepted, don't say I didn't warn you.
