Dublin really does live up to its ‘Fair City’ status…

Instagram is without doubt one of the fastest growing social media image sharing websites in the world. For newcomers to the photo-filter app there are numerous amounts of amazing Irish Instagram accounts worth a follow, none more so than this next user.
