TBEX Dublin doesn’t start for another six months, but our friends at Fáilte Ireland wanted to give some travel bloggers a sneak peek at our 2013 European host city during one of its biggest celebrations – the St. Patrick’s Day Festival. With the help of TBEX, they selected a small group of bloggers – Amber DeGrace (Tickling My Fancy), Andrew Dobson (Dobbernation Loves), Monika Fuchs (Travel World Online), JoAnna Haugen (Kaleidoscopic Wandering), and Yvonne Zagermann (Just Travelous) – to experience Dublin at its most green.
For the rest of us who couldn’t be in Dublin over St. Patrick’s Day, here’s a round-up of the blog posts and photos by that group.
And yes, all this Dublin and Ireland talk makes us even more excited about going to Dublin in October. How about you?
