Every July our family spends the month in Dublin, where the rugbyman has lot of rugbythings to do 🙂 and mom and kid take the chance to visit around and (sometimes) help him out.
On my second summer there, we had the privilege to live in a tiny flat in Monkstown, which is a tiny town facing Dublin gulf, full of tiny beautiful spots and shops.
It is not actually only a restaurant, it is a restaurant-cafè-grocery-butcher-delicatessen: a gorgeous foodhall, a pure delight for the palate and the eyes.
My first bought were some chocolate brownies which me and my rugbyman are still talking about, two years later.
This beautiful place is run by Avoca, as well as many other spots around Dublin and Ireland, I discovered later reading their brochure.
The Avoca Handweavers Mill was established in 1723: wow what a wonderful history!
Avoca throws rugs, throws, blankets in natural fibres – all pure new lambswool, mohair, cashmere, angora, even cotton and linen making homes beautiful, people stylish and life cosy right across the world.
They have opened up a number of shops and restaurants/cafès and a gorgeous garden around town: they’ve already filled up my to do list for July 2017.
Visit their website www.avoca.com to discover more about this beautiful company.
Talk to you soon 🙂
