I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone...
Last May Andrew and myself escaped to Dublin, Ireland for a couple of days as part of my Birthday present. I'd been to Dublin previously on a school art trip but this was Andrew's first time in Ireland, and as his maternal Grandfather grew up in Dublin he was quite excited.
On our first night in Dublin, he found The Bakehouse.
The Bakehouse is located on Bachelor's Walk, just a short walk from the Ha'penny Bridge, overlooking the River Liffey. It was here that we both experienced one of the greatest dishes we have ever tried. A pottage (a thick soup or stew - in this case a beef stew) served in a bread bowl. A bowl of bread. An edible bowl made of bread. The Best. Thing. Ever!

If you ever get the chance to visit Dublin, I highly recommend it! And I hope that in some small way my blog post has provided you with a few ideas of what to do/see/eat. Well, mostly eat... Enjoy :-)
