I have a personal interest in the blog I’m praising today, I have to confess beforehand.

That’s because I’m one of the writers of the Dublin Community Blog, and I’m really proud of it. The blog was originally set up in 2006 by main man Daragh MacGrath to promote Dublin and to drive interest in blogging, and has been going strong ever since. A really big thing for us was winning the Irish Blog Awards for Best Group Blog in 2009 – and we also have been longlisted for the 2010 awards!

We are a diverse community of writers (loads of Irish veteran bloggers like Red Mum and Roseanne, plus expats from the US, Germany, Romania and Holland), all with different interests and topics that we write about – so you’ll get a pretty diverse picture of the Irish capital when reading our posts. And you’ll even find tailor-made guides for visitors! So by all means visit us in Dublin – or on our blog.
