Irish people love their scones, but it took me almost a year to try one. It’s not that I wasn’t looking at these delicious sweet buns at the markets or on the brunch menus countless of times, but there was almost like a divine intervention preventing me from having one. Either I was full from lunch or the café in question was sold out. Anyway, finally the time had come for that perfect scone moment I had been waiting for and I got the whole deal with cream, butter and jam. Yes, it was Delicious! And for moments like this, the Lost Society at Powerscourt has the perfect little terrace overlooking the bustle of the atmospheric atrium.
I stopped by at A. Rubanesque just before Christmas to get some ribbons for gift wrapping. This small and atmospheric store at Powerscourt is a true ribbon heaven. All those colours, buttons and lace are a playful invitation to creativity!
