Your Guide To Dublin By Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow's luxury lifestyle website Goop has published a guide to Dublin.
Widely known for their pretentious reviews and recommendations...
Such as the cheese knives for $425 or their Essential Crystals in the Goop Medicine Bag.
Describing the crystals "as a timeless database of knowledge, because they retain all the information they have ever been exposed to. Crystals absorb information — whether a severe weather pattern, or the experience of an ancient ceremony — and pass it to anyone that comes into contact with them".
It's also where Gwyneth described her divorce as a "conscious-uncoupling".
Well Goop has now set it's sights on our capital and written a Dublin guide for it's lavish and lush audience.
And my oh my its as floury and extravagant as you'd imagine..
"Always a political town, Dublin has been transformed by the roar of the left-leaning youthquake".
"Irish cuisine, once something of an oxymoron, is as exciting and impressive as the city’s new breed of chefs, all dedicated to showcasing the country’s bounty from field and farm".
"But despite the city’s surge into the future, this is still Ireland. The after-work pint will always be deified, the local pub will always be as much about lifestyle as location".
The over-the-top descriptions aside, they actually do recommend good things to do in Dublin like the National Botanic Gardens, IMMA and the Chester Beatty Library.
And guides you through the best of the city's hotels, boutiques, cafes, pubs and restaurants - like The Merrion, Fia, Etto, Coppinger Row, Fallon and Byrne, Whelans, The Bernard Shaw and The Pepper Pot.
