I am the kind of person who tends to get lots of big ideas, and usually, those ideas stay just that: ideas. So, when a year or so ago Timmy and I started talking about a possible trip to Ireland at some undetermined time, I didn't let myself get fully wrapped up in the idea. Eventually though, we (mainly, Timmy) had mentioned the "idea" to so many people that I felt that we needed to go through with it. Not out of any sort of obligation, but more so that every time we talked about it we got more and more excited, to the point where not going would have been incredibly disappointing. In December we made it official by purchasing a Dublin airfare and hotel travel package for this summer. So, for the next several months I am going to bask in all the excitement over our first major trip together by sharing some of the things I am looking forward to about Dublin; first up, doors!
I have an odd love and appreciation for special doors; in fact, I have a whole Pinterest board devoted to doors. So, when I found out that Dublin has neighborhoods like Merrion Square and Fitzwilliam Square which are full of wonderful doors, you can bet that I want to check them out. Below are a few of my favorite Dublin doors.
