My favorite things about my cities

I relocated to Dublin 30 years ago after falling head over heels in love with the place after a visit. I immersed myself in its history and culture and they haven't been able to get rid of me ever since.

I particularly love Trinity College and Christchurch Cathedral and you can never have too many visits to the zoo. And of course I'm partial to the odd tour, the ghost tour being one of my favourites telling stories of days gone by that leave you utterly gobsmacked.

Another favourite of mine is the GPO - a building at the heart of the Easter Rising and still serves as a functioning post office. Hilarious to see the little old dears queueing up to collect their pension in Ireland's most famous landmark.

And when I need a little escape from the hustle and bustle there's always afternoon tea at the Shelbourne Hotel, the cakes there are absolutely delicious! and what could be more relaxing afterwards than a stroll through Stephens Green, a little haven of nature slap bang in the middle of the city.

But the most beautiful thing of all about this city are its people, the most warm, welcoming, friendly group of people you will ever hope to meet. You'll walk into a pub a stranger and leave with a bunch of new friends. You'll go dancing in the rain and smile until your face hurts. So go on pay us a visit there's a seat waiting and a pint with your name on it, and a good old fashioned Irish welcome "FAILTE"
