•Pamper your travel-weary feet with a super-relaxing aromatherapy pedicure
•Get rock star hair style with a luxe salon appointment
Dublin may be compact, but those cobblestones can be murder on your feet. Refresh weary legs with a pedicure at the slick nail bar Fifth Avenue. The Spa Orange Pedicure is a blissful aromatherapy-based treatment using a fruit bowl’s worth of lotions and potions. First is a cranberry-and-orange sea-salt bath, next a gentle honey-and-mandarin scrub, and then a massage with lime-zest cream to hydrate skin that may have been sapped of moisture from a long-haul flight. A file and polish finishes it all off nicely. Toes taken care of, fit in a quick hair blow dry at Dylan Bradshaw around the corner—it’s the city’s top salon, owned by stylist to the stars Bradshaw, who has coiffed the likes of Jerry Hall, Victoria Beckham, and the ever glamorous pop star Florence Welch.
The Fifth Avenue Nail Bar is located on Wicklow Street, on the corner where it meets William Street South. The exterior is black with an elegant white sign. You can continue down William Street South to find Dylan Bradshaw. It’s just past the point where William Street South meets Coppinger Row.
