say hi to_ Holiday Guide '17 | IV. The Philosopher

Ciarán is an architect and self proclaimed philosopher hailing from Dublin, Ireland. He has an obsession with DDR Germany, politics and like most of his Irish comrades, the perfectly poured pint of Guinness. If while debating politics with the lads or daydreaming about the new buildings he dreams to design, his pint is served without being poured correctly ... he will call you out on it. 

Although an architect by trade, he is a feisty and overly opinionated political activist and philosopher. Not the kind you want to unfollow in your Facebook newsfeed, for what this Irishman lacks in censorship he makes up with overwhelming charm and wit. He has the ability to change anyones mind and his true talent for storytelling can even make the person with the least bit of interest in DDR German architecture, foam at the mouth to hear more. 

This Christmas he has a few things he would love to add to his Georgian styled townhouse on Merrion Square this year.
