The doors of Dublin

Doors of Dublin

At the TBEX travel bloggers conference in Dublin, we were asked what is typical of the capital of Ireland. Most said Guinness and whisky. Of course they are right. But there's definitely more that embodies the town on the Liffey for me - and that's the front doors of the houses.

The houses themselves appear fairly uniform along the city center streets. On our trip to Dun Laoghaire in the south of Dublin, too, the houses look uniform – perhaps because of the cloudy weather. If not the doors of Dublin would. Here the Irish become inventive. Even if the given décor is uniform, as with these doors, they differ: in color, in the plant decoration, in their door knockers or other details. I could walk for hours through the streets of Dublin, just to admire the pretty doors that are one of the city's special features for me. Here are some examples:

What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world.

6 thoughts too "The doors of Dublin"

  1. Yes, the doors are really special. Not for nothing there are numerous postcard motifs of them :)
    I even worked on one of the most famous doors and the door where I lived was blue <3

    1. I think these doors are just great. Especially at Merrion Square there are many different ones.

  2. The doors look really great, especially the door on the first picture I like very much.
    It looks so homey and you get curious about what it might look like behind it.

    1. I always feel that way. I would like to know what it looks like behind these doors. They look really inviting.

  3. I love to look at the windows and doors while traveling. Somehow this is also part of culture for me. Especially if the doors have to meet certain standards, as in Ireland, they can look so different.

    Thank you for this insight and kind regards,

    1. Hello Wibke,

      Yes, we feel that too. Especially in Dublin I always notice that. Walking around Merrion Square you can admire great doors - one more beautiful than the other.

      Best regards,
      Monika and Petar
