I decided to change the name instead of my normal old week update lol.

Last Friday I went to one of my favourit places in Dublin to eat, The Market Bar  it does amazing Tapas.
Its perfect for a night out with the girls, few drinks amazing food and a good gossip.

We went for Meatballs with Patatas Bravas and of course Nachos.

Last Sunday I done the cooking the fear of doing the Sunday dinner, I  decided to stay away from even trying to do a roast dinner the stress. So I decided  to try a receipe I came across on facebook for pulled pork  this was so easy to make, if i can do it anyone can and the sauce was good I did buy a BBQ sauce just in case but we didn’t need it.

I also done the dessert which was just strawberries, icecream, cream and broken meringue, its one of my favourite desserts and so simple to make.

Bits and Bobs I picked up are of course are from Penneys/Primark.

First item is a Rose Gold jewellery organiser which is perfect for my dressing table and its €7.

Another dressing table item which I was on the look out for a while now and was planning on buying one on ebay is a cotton wool holder and this was €2.50 and is so handy.

The Boat Restaurant and Bar

Few weeks ago I went for a meal on MV Cill Airne its restaurant and bar on a boat that doesn’t sail. It’s based on famous river liffey on the north side.  I have been a few times to this restaurant and really love and it’s something a little different staff are all very friendly and food is good.

We decided to eat in the restaurant as also do bar food and we went for the Pre Theatre Menu which is a choice of two course meal for €23 or three course for €27. I decided to go for the two course meal.

For main I went for the Steak now there is a €6 Supplement but it was worth it, it was served with mash potatoes, mushrooms and pepper sauce. The Steak was cooked to perfection and Mash was lovely.

For dessert I went for the Tart which was only ok but the other desserts wore lovely I did bully my brother into swapping his cheese cake for mine and it was amazing.

What I love about this restaurant is the size its very intimate but at the same time you’re not on top of each other.

If your in Dublin and are looking for somewhere to eat try MV Cill Airne
