Weekend away in City West Hotel, Dublin

Hello Beauties!
Hope you are all well!
If you follow me on snapchat (orla.hartnett) you'll know that I was in Dublin last weekend. We had planned on going up just for the one night but we changed our minds last minute and booked Friday night as well. We were heading up to Round 1 of the Irish Drift Championship anyway, but I decided it would be a great way to clear my head before I started my new job!

Anytime we go, we stay in City West Hotel, in Saggart. Its a fabulous hotel! We were in Mondello all day Friday and checked in to the hotel late Friday evening! They have completely changed the outside area of the hotel, new car parks and a roundabout, which was new to us! Its definitely one of my favourite hotels in Dublin!

We had dinner in the bistro in the hotel and it was amazing.

On Saturday I had to check out Dublin City. Id never had the chance before to explore it on my own, so I was only too delighted to stroll around the shops and take my time. Best thing about the City West Hotel is that the Luas is only 10-15 minute walk from the hotel and you can get a flexi ticket for €6.80 for 1 day and you can use it on all the zones and as much as you want that day. I hopped off at Jervis and had a nose around Jervis Shopping Centre. First stop was Forever 21! And after that I just walked around and popped into any shop that caught my eye. I picked up a few bits in Penneys. only spent €30 in there believe it or not.

I headed back to the hotel after lunch and had a nap! I just really wanted to chill out and relax for the weekend so it was nothing too exciting. I got a bit of work done for the blog and I've some really exciting things being planned for the blog and for me as a freelance artist! So be sure to stay tuned for that!

On Sunday we headed back out to Mondello for the final day of Round 1. The weather was so nice but SO cold, I had like 2 coats and 3 layers underneath that on. I wasn't one bit of a fashionista, but I didn't care cause I was warm!

It was so nice to get away and just relax for a while. Hopefully we'll get to do it more often!

Chat to you all soon!
