An #AutumnAtTheAttic Roundup

An #AutumnAtTheAttic Roundup

As our Lifestyle Editor, Lee Clark said back in October, autumn is our season here at The Attic on Eighth. We’d be sad to see it unofficially go now that most of the leaves have fallen to the ground, but December brings such seasonal joy with it that […]

Murder on the Orient Express Chic in Istanbul

Murder on the Orient Express Chic in Istanbul

Traveling on the Orient Express has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. I love trains, and I’ve been aesthetically drawn to the early twentieth century since I first watched The Secret Garden as a small child. Instead of fading […]

Dublin Bookshops

Dublin Bookshops

Harry Potter agus an Órchloch – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in Irish Literary talent has never been in short supply in Ireland. From the legends like William Butler Yeats, James Joyce, Bram Stoker, and Oscar Wilde to more modern authors including Donal Ryan, Emma Donoghue, […]

Bookshops in Beyoğlu, Istanbul

Bookshops in Beyoğlu, Istanbul

Whenever I visit Istanbul, I like to stay in Beyoğlu. Hilly, historical, and packed with turn-of-the-century buildings and much, much older landmarks, it makes me feel alive. Cats wander the streets and check in on you as you eat meze and drink cocktails to your heart’s content in […]

At Summer’s End

At Summer’s End

Summer is warm and pink, the same floral dress worn day in and day out. Open in the back to let a rare breeze flow through. Berries for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; an endless flow of sparkling liquids. Rain all day, nights spent running through […]

Lauren’s Dublin City Guide

Lauren’s Dublin City Guide

An Afternoon Punting in the Marais Poitevin

An Afternoon Punting in the Marais Poitevin

When anyone talks about punting, my mind inevitably goes to one place: Venice. I’ve never really wanted to go punting in Venice – the canals smell much too strong and I have an aversion to anything extremely touristy… but the thought of punting outside of Venice? […]

What I’m Taking on Summer Holiday

What I’m Taking on Summer Holiday

The Internet loves to beg the question, “What’s in My Bag?” but we here at the Attic thought we’d take that one step further and have our Editors share the things going into their suitcases. This won’t be a very frequent feature – most of us […]

Literally Six Hours in Nashville

Literally Six Hours in Nashville

I don’t like country music. There are exceptions, namely Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline, but I don’t even listen to those enough to consider myself a bonafide fan. I have however been drawn to the city of Nashville for a few years now, given its […]
