Howth, Co Dublin, public toilets “A rare public convenience this. In Dublin, you usually have to sneak past the security guard in McDonald’s, go to a pub or just hang on until you get home. However, although it is convenient, it is not salubrious. The paint is chipping from the walls, and although the toilets are not on a par with the one in Trainspotting, they are not exactly sparkling with the recent kiss of the Toilet Duck.”

Tesco, Baggot Street, Dublin “This is the loneliest Tesco in the whole world. You should come at around 5.30pm and see all the single 20- to 30-somethings who work in the area plod in here all soggy and morose.They queue up meekly beside one another in their damp overcoats to buy a ready meal for one and two cans of Tuborg . . . If I could play Cupid for a day, I would play Cupid here.”

Glendalough, Co Wicklow, monastic settlement “I admired the large tower and the construction capabilities of the early monastics, however you’re only going to see ruins from bygone years plus tourists, tourists and more tourists. If you’re into ancient ruins then you’ll enjoy, otherwise I’d suggest you think about it.”
