Valentine's Day is not far away and if you are in a long term relationship you may be considering proposing on the day that is dedicated to celebrating love. We are here to help make that decision a little easier by identifying 5 unique places in Dublin to propose this Valentine's day.
5. Anne's Lane Dublin 2
Anne's Lane in Dublin 2 just off Grafton Street has become one of the most instagramable locations in Dublin due to its umbrella art overhead. The colourful umbrellas make for an amazing backdrop for proposal photos in the heart of Dublin city.
If you are considering a proposal at Annes Lane and need assistance planning and capturing the special moment then check out our Annes Lane proposal package.
4. Whitefriar Church Shrine to St Valentine
Whitefriar Church on Aungier Street is home to the remains of the Patron Saint of love himself, St Valentine. What better way to declare your love than in front of St Valentine himself on the day that is dedicated to celebrating love. Ok so maybe to some people proposing in a church may seem a bit morbid but you could visit the church and impress your partner with your Valentine's knowledge before taking them somewhere else to get down on one knee.

3. Guinness Storehouse
The Gravity Bar, located at the top of the Guinness Storehouse is a stunning bar with a spectacular 360 degree view of Dublin's Fair City and is just perfect for that special romantic proposal. What better way to toast your engagement than with a champagne flute of the black stuff (Guinness) overlooking Dublin city.

2. On the Liffey
The River Liffey at night time with a backdrop of the convention centre and the Samuel Beckett Bridge makes for a beautiful and iconic proposal setting.
1. Kilmainham Gaol
Kilmainham Gaol is the number 1 most popular thing to do in Dublin on Tripadvisor and although it may seem a strange place to propose in a prison, the prison itself has a history of a very famous romance dating back to 1916. Joseph Mary Plunkett one of the leaders of the 1916 rising, married his sweetheart Grace Gifford in the prison chapel, just 7 hours before he was executed by firing squad. The Prison is steeped in Irish history and would certainly make for a unique proposal.
