River Crossing Rocks!!

I know the “North Side” has some bad connotation to it, but really, I think river-crossing is great. Ever been to “Little Italy” just off of the Millenium Bridge? The wine bars ROCK!

Cheap clothing at Penney’s? Hell yes!

Cineworld Dublin? Yes please!

Moore Street Chinese food?! Fill me up!!

“Chocolate Soup” at Roche Stores? Count me In!

One of my best friends with Chocolate Soup in Roche Stores…

The outside markets with the ladies selling fresh fruit, fish and stuff like that?
Heeeells yes!!

There are so many things…I just wish I could keep on going about it…but I really think you guys get the point…

By the way, let me try to clarify my previous post about Dublin being “friendly” I think people thought I said Dublin wasn’t “friendly”….I think Dublin is friendly, what I meant was that Dublin wasn’t “student-friendly” (ie, cheap eats nearby college for in between classes, expensive coffees, etc…)

ANYWAY, moving swiftly along. The Point theatre is on the “north side” as well.

What I’m trying to say, is that it’s great. Where are your fav spots?!

Really though, the North Side has so many things. I honestly think, more than the “other side.” It’s fun to walk around, see the sights…

I honestly think that the people who are “not-so keen” about the North side are the D4-heads…The Grafton street loving, “roysh” B-O-Ps… ;p (blonde, orange, pink…ever look at the girls? Platinum blonde, GHD straight hair, Orange fake tan, Pink AE or A&F sweatshirts)

Anyway, I digress.

Basically, don’t let the stigma bring you down!! Go hang out in the North Side. And if you get tired, go to the Buddha Bag display store….(it’s a store with HUUUUUUUGEEEE cushions, shaped like bean bags, but so soft and comfy. )

Happy Trails! :)

    So you are a Northsider? Welcome to the real Dublin.

    Most native Dubliners are only having a laugh with the whole north-south thing. Adn as for the whole snobery of it, you’ll actually find more northside prejudice against southsiders than vica versa
