[ a tiny bit of romance ]

I HOPE everyone had a lovely, romantic Valentine's Day! We started our celebrations early and my guy took me out to my favourite little Italian bistro for dinner on Saturday.

Ragazzi is located in the small seaside town of Dalkey, close to where we used to live next to U2's The Edge in Killiney. It's the most charming little restaurant - tiny and cozy where the food is authentic Italian and even the waiters speak with a thick Italian accent - you'd think we were in Italy! The decor is humble but the food is delicious (sorry I didn't get any pics of our dinner - I kept forgetting until I was already half done and it was quite dark in there!) If you are ever on a trip to Ireland, Ragazzi is a must-go destination!

That looks lovely - I am not too clued up on the different areas in Dublin but looks like I will have to try out Dalkey next time I am there.

Hope you're enjoying Ireland!

That looks like a great place to be (and eat!) We're doing our V-day tonight at a little place called Comfort (sooo good too!) Hope the romance has continued for you.
