I've lived in Dublin on and off for 7 years now and one thing I always look forward to is the Best of Dublin magazine by Hot Press. A collection of recommendations from around Dublin that make you want to explore the city.

The magazine has a great selection of articles and reviews of restaurants, pubs, free things to do and lots more and its less than €4! I have to admit I love the restaurant section that gives a list of 60 restaurants. All the restaurants are put into categories so if you are looking for the best brunch or the best cake, its all laid out for you. Its fun just to peruse through this section salivating at the idea of visiting some of the restaurants, disagreeing with some recommendations and discovering gems that have been hidden right under your nose. Also recommend are fashion stores and beauty shops so I'm excited to be given these a try.

One thing that is commendable is that it gets you away from the monotony of chains. Describing little, boutique cafes off the beaten track or a chic yet affordable fashion store that has really nice dresses or just where to go if you are broke. Its a great read for a traveler passing through or a born and bred Dubliner to show something different that the city can offer.
