16 of the most Instagram-worthy floors around Ireland's capital city

A reminder to look down every once in a while.

FLOORS. THEY’RE ALL THE rage on Instagram. Scroll through Instagram long enough and you’ll likely stumble upon a photo taken by a person proclaiming, “I have this thing with floors.”

In fact, I Have This Thing With Floors is an enormously popular Instagram account with nearly 850,000 followers. But that’s beside the point.

As it happens, Dublin is home to lots of ornate, photogenic floors. Here’s a small selection…

1. The doorstep of The Stag’s Head
