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.

I’ve always wanted to visit Dublin and Ireland in general, here’s my (virtual) chance!
I went in the day they re-opened, after a ridiculously-eager wait, only to be uedrewhelmnd by the almost zero changes they made during the 2yrs plus closure. All the exhibits got a spring clean I guess, and they slightly re-arranged the lower floor cabinets, but nothing much else besides the new entrance wall and a coat of paint on the insides.Disgusted. I loved that place as a kid and still do now, but for jaysis sake can Ireland gets its act together just this once. Any tourist that visits the museum will discover that 50% of the exhibits aren’t accessible to the public, purely because the museum can’t fund fire exits up there. I talked to the curator about it and he’s as pissed off as everybody else. It must be frustrating being asked 200 times a day, ‘can we go upstairs now?’Sigh.Nice bats Thomps.
