Heading to Dublin? Here are 8 things to pack before you go!

1 Mid-Length Leather Detail Gabardine Trench Coat, Burberry, $1,995
A trench coat is a must when heading to Dublin. This beautiful Burberry trench has an incredible silhouette and features the signature epaulettes that give this coat its high-end appeal.

Throw a pair of Hunter Wellington boots on before heading out the door and you’re ready for whatever weather Dublin has in store (pssst .. it most likely involves rain.) Hunter boots are not only practical for rainy climes but come in a rainbow of pretty colours, too. {Image via Boxwood Clippings}

3 Kate Spade Nylon Jan, Kate Spade, $198
Leave the leather at home and opt for a nylon bag that can easily withstand getting wet. This nylon bag is the perfect travel companion – wear it cross-body for ease and safety as you take in the sights of the city.

4 Paul Smith Multi-Stripe Collapsible Umbrella, Mr. Porter, $95
Does it seem like I’m harping on the rain in Dublin? I’m just saying … you’re going to need an umbrella.

5 Circle of Friends, Audible, $28
I never leave home without a book and Maeve Binchy’s Circle of Friends is one of my favourites … perfect reading while in Dublin. Get ensnared in the lives of Benny, Jack and Nan and imagine yourself a part of the drama as you stroll through the grounds of Trinity College.

6 Patchwork Grid Scarf, $65, J Crew
A scarf is one of my travel essentials, regardless of where I’m headed. This cozy scarf is soft and warm and will go with practically everything.

7 Flats, Oka B, $45
When the rain finally dissipates, ditch the wellies and opt for a comfy pair of shoes like these feminine flats.

8 Leather Notebook – Hunter Green, Mr. Boddington’s Studio, $45-$80
There’s something about Dublin that may inspire you to put pen to paper. Perhaps it’s this city’s deep literary roots and connection to writers like Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw and James Joyce. If inspiration hits, you’ll be glad you’ve brought a journal along. These leather journals by Mr. Boddington are perfect for all your travels.
