The 12 Cups of Christmas

Today on Twitter I came across a really fun alternative to the 12 Pubs of Christmas. It's The 12 Cups of Christmas! But what is it I hear you ask?

Well, the girls @EventmamaHQ love a  drink as much as the next gal but they also love their tea and treats. When it comes to tea, cakes and chats, they claim they literally cannot get enough! 

With that in mind, they have come up with Eventmama’s 12 Cups of Christmas #12cupsxmas. They have set up a route with some fantastic locations across Dublin, chock full of some of their favourite cafes. In fact, they came up with too many great places so a few honorary mentions are below as well!
