COVID-19 caused a setback for tourism all around the world. We had a setback as well, and if you look at the time of our last blog post, you will see that we were quite slow to produce content also the last two years before COVID. But, now we are back again!
Today, we have updated lots of our articles. We had quite a lot of broken links here and there. As a result, we have spent lots of time updating broken links and we have also tried to update some outdated information.
We have also added information about some upcoming events in Dublin, including the annual Christmas market at Dublin Castle. Besides information about the Christmas market, we have also created some other events for our events calendar. Take a look at all of it and thank you for dropping by our Dublin Guide.
In the period between September 8th and September 23rd, the annual Fringe Festival will be arranged in Dublin. Are you a fan of culture, art, and discovering talent, the Fringe Festival might be something for you.
Every year there are Fringe Festivals arranged all across the world. In Dublin, the festival brings more than 30,000 people to the city, and every year they see performances and groups they have never seen before. After all, that is often what a fringe festival is about.
Few people go to the theatres, and tickets for such well-known theaters can be very expensive. At the fringe festival, smaller theater groups and artists get the chance to bring their work and acts out to a greater audience. This is a fantastic opportunity, not only for the artists but also for the audience to see and demystify the world of actors and theaters.
A Fringe festival definition
“Fringe festivals are all about providing an accessible avenue for independent theatre artists to produce and perform their work in front of an audience. The Fringe is really the essence of theatre; virtually anybody can submit a show to the Fringe and the festivals place no limits on content so shows can be bold, raw and uncensored.” (source: Huffington Post)

Are you planning a trip to Dublin and to Ireland in February 2018? Are you in love with winter sports, and fear missing out on any of the highlights from the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang? What can be done?
RTE is the name of the TV channel with the broadcasting rights to the Winter Olympics 2018. But, do you know the name of any Irish athlete that will participate in the Winter Olympics 2018? I don’t! Why is that important? The people of Ireland has little to no interest in the Winter Olympics, due to the fact that they have no famous athletes participating. The result is, therefore, people are not interested in watching the broadcasts. So, even though RTE has the rights to air the event, they will probably only air summaries from the happenings, and maybe a few events live. I am not sure about this, but that is at least what I expect to happen.
RTE is a free channel, and you can watch RTE in your hotel room, in pubs and also on the Internet. But, what should you do if you want to watch the Winer Olympics online, all the events, all the competitions, and it cannot be done on RTE? In this article in the IP Address Guide, you will find instructions on how to watch the Winter Olympics 2018 online, so I recommend for you to read the article, and hopefully, it will help you out!
