Street Art in Dublin

Dublin Street ArtI love turning a corner and stumbling upon something completely unexpected.

A hidden Catholic church (like on my recent London trip), a pretty park or a quirky shop, anything that makes you stop for a minute and think, wow.

Irish Street ArtThis place in Dublin was just that.  Hidden down a back road and discovered on our way back from the local Tesco, an otherwise nondescript car park had become a secret gallery for hundreds of doodlers and street artists.

Street Art Car ParkEvery carefully crafted piece had a story, its own reason for being. It infuriated me that I would never learn them. Instead I amused myself walking around and snapping my favourite pieces, like this weird and wonderful gem below.

What has made you stop and think ‘wow’ recently?
