Delightful Dublin Guide

cover 1000px (1)

Are you planning a visit to Dublin? Last year, I teamed up with my friend and photographer Julie Matkin to write a beautiful and useful e-guide to the city called Delightful Dublin. It takes you through each neighborhood, explains what to look out for and what sites to make sure to visit, and gives all my best tips for restaurants, cafes and pubs. It includes lots of awesome day trips along with packing tips and transportation information. And if you’re just traveling to Dublin in your imagination from the comfort of your couch, you’ll feel like you’ve made the trip!

Click here for the downloadable guide. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

    I love love love love this guide. My husband and I moved to Dublin last month and have been picking a chapter/location to do every weekend. We have trekked over to Coppa (LOVE!), took a tour to Kilkenny and Glendalough, and had brunch at Herbstreet so far. I loved how this book walked you through the different neighborhoods and your favorite things about them. Thank you for spending so much time on this and I look forward to following you more when you are back in Dublin. Have fun in Houston (we are from Austin!). 🙂 Small world!

    Hi Emily,
    I’m just listening to the podcast Irish Fireside and discovered your book, but when I go to, it looks like the site doesn’t exist anymore! Is there any way to get the book? I’m going to Dublin in about 2 weeks, and your guide sounds just like what I’ve been looking for!

    Thanks so much for all the tips in the podcast!
