Hi Everyone! Hope you all are well. Today I’m bringing you something completely different, something that has been a long time coming, my very first vlog. As many of you know I’m Irish but when someone new comes across my channel I can almost guarantee you that it’s the first thing that they will comment on. I receive so many comments about the country in which I live and I think there is such a keen interest because the vast majority of my subscribers reside outside of Ireland. Due to this I’ve decided to incorporate some new, fresh content onto my channel in the form of travel vlogs. I’m going to be taking you on an ‘Irish Adventure’ 🙂 My aim is to film a travel vlog in each county in Ireland to give you a taster for what this beautiful country has to offer. I love my country and I’m so proud to be Irish so I hope you’ll enjoy this new series on my channel.
PS: Don’t worry, these vlogs are in addition to my makeup tutorials. These vlogs won’t be frequent as they are expensive and time consuming to create but i’ll let you know when the next installment is coming up!
I’ve started with Dublin and throughout the course of this video I’ve showed you some of my favourite places in the city. I began by taking you along on a trip around the Guinness Storehouse, the place where the famous ‘Guinness’ beer is brewed. I studied business for five years in DIT on Aungier Street so I’m very familiar with the Grafton St/Temple Bar/Stephens Green area. These are places I loved to potter around and still do, despite the fact I’m not up in Dublin as often anymore because I finished college last year. Grafton Street is one of the most famous streets to shop on in Ireland. It runs from St Stephen’s Green, the historical park and gardens are just across the road! As I mentioned in the video there is always a bit of a buzz around, particularly in Temple bar. Temple bar is such a unique area in the city, the cobbled streets are lined with bars and boutiques and it’s an area I love, especially at night time! I decided to throw in a few clips from a YSL event I went to so that the vlog would relate back to makeup in a way. The event was for their Summer ’16 collection and boy was there some amazing products on show, if you like YSL you’re in for a treat!
I’m not fully comfortable with speaking to the camera just yet which is why there was only a small chatty segment in this vlog. I’d like my vlogs to be more so artistic but I’m hoping to add in some more chatty bits. Fingers crossed that the more I film the more comfortable i’ll feel with talking to the camera haha!
I’ve stayed in many many hotels in Dublin over the years, I love finding hidden gems in the city. I came across the Ashling Hotel when I was looking up tickets for the Guinness Factory and I noticed on the site that the hotel do package deals. I can’t remember exactly how much I paid for my one night stay but I do know it was a good deal taking into consideration the nights stay and the fact that tickets to the Storehouse and breakfast were included. The hotel is only a stone’s throw away from the Guinness factory so that was really handy! I’ll leave a link to their offers page if you are looking for somewhere to stay while visiting Dublin. The staff were extremely friendly and overall I just couldn’t fault it 🙂
