Fashion bible Vogue has compiled its ultimate guide to Dublin, but what does it include?

The prestigious fashion publication is known for its love of luxury brands and making a statement, so it's no surprise that Vogue's selection of what to do in Dublin is lavish, to say the least.

To begin the piece, Ireland's capital is described as: "An intimate city with a bellowing reputation for storytelling and gastronomy. In recent years, the Irish capital has become a haven for tech giants such as Twitter and Google, but despite its modern magnetism Dublin maintains its infectious pursuit for the 'craic.'"

First on the list of "10 things not to miss in the fair city," is a stay at The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Square (below), praised for its "juxtaposition of urbanity and nature."

Next up is a visit to Roads Publishing on Dame Street, which "embodies elegance and innovation, working with the best international artists, curators and designers to create books that are collectible and timeless works of art."

Bastible on the South Circular Road is the venue of choice for lunch, with visitors advised not to miss the baked pear with Jerusalem artichoke and salted caramel.

A trip to Francis Bacon’s Studio at The Hugh Lane Gallery is a "don't miss" on the list, while "homewares haven" Article in Powerscourt Centre is noted as the place to shop.

Much-loved haunt 777 on South Great George's Street is "the ideal spot for a full feast or just a post-prandial drink," according to Vogue, with Sidecar at The Westbury Hotel highly recommended for an evening tipple.

Unsurprisingly, popular tourist attraction The Long Room at Trinity College Library (top) is featured, with visitors advised to soak up its contents: "During your visit, count the 48 marble busts of eminent writers and philosophers and compare the halls to the computer-generated version, which appeared as the Jedi Archive in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones."

Both Forest & Marcy and Forest Avenue Restaurant are listed as highly-regarded dinner venues, with a trip to the The Dean (above) suggested to round it all off.

A stay-cation never sounded so good.
