Attention Instagram lovers, this article is for you! If you have been living in Dublin for a while, I am sure that you have already taken a lot of pictures in the new city that you call “home”. Your phone or camera is probably full of amazing, super creative, selfies of yourself in front of the red pub in Temple Bar, giving carrots to the lovely and friendly deer at the Phoenix Park, or at the River Liffey with the Ha’Penny Bridge behind you. But you have to recognise that these kinds of pictures are very typical and every new student that arrives in Ireland takes the same pictures over and over and over again. You need to become more creative, guys!
Well, if you are wondering “how”, I am going to help you to find the best Instagramable hidden spots in Dublin City Centre so you will receive the highest amount of likes among your friends. However, an extra tip is that you should not forget that sometimes the place where are you taking the picture is not important, it’s the perspective you give it that matters An amazing spot is great, but your pictures will be better if you allow your imagination to run free.
Now, let’s discover them!
1 – Love Lane
This bucolic alleyway in Temple Bar hides a beautiful street art mural. It is a tribute to love, created by Anne Doran, which shows a beautiful wall full of love phrases from people around the world.
2 – Museum Building
We all know that Trinity College is an excellent location to take Instagram pictures. Who doesn’t have pictures in the Library or in the Campanile? However, there is a secret place that most people ignore: the Museum Building. It is a fine Victorian construction designed by Sir Thomas Deane; and it’s lovely!
3–Porterhouse access from Grafton Street
If you try to access the famous Porterhouse Central from Grafton Street, you have to do it from a hidden street that is G-O-R-G-E-U-S! The small lights, plants and architecture create an enchanted atmosphere.
4 – Anne’s Lane
This small lane is becoming more popular, but we can still consider it an Instagram hidden spot. What is it peculiarity? Of course, the lovely suspended umbrellas, which create an amazing and magical effect in the sky.
5 – Smithfield Square and Murals
Although it goes unnoticed, Smithfield is one of the most unique areas of Dublin. Within its surroundings we find a mixture of new and old architecture, artistic murals, the beautiful Jameson distillery and colourful lights throughout the square.
Crossing the south of the city, the Grand Canal gives us several highly-photographed spaces, especially in the parts where the channel is divided into different levels. Unmissable place to take great photographs!
