Hi Everyone,

I'm Jennifer (aka Dr. J), a part-time travel blogger and full time project manager working at one of the big tech companies in Dublin. I'm an American expat currently based in Dublin. I originally moved to Dublin for a one year assignment and I'm still here 10 years later. I love living in Ireland and joined this community to share my experience and advice both about things to do in Dublin and what to do around Ireland more broadly.

You may be interested in the following posts that I've written based on my experience living in Dublin:

I would like help to source paper serviettes depicting Ireland for an art project please. Famous people / actors from Ireland, famous buildings, places, Vintage pictures. Any help would be greatly appreciated- I can’t find anything on the internet. Thank you Claire

I created some merchandise (including serviettes!) featuring doors of Dublin. This may not be exactly what you are looking for (and they are relatively expensive for a napkin!) but sharing the link in case it's of interest. It is also possible to put other images on a serviette on Zazzle. I originally went to Zazzle because I wanted a mug featuring my photos of doors of Dublin for personal use.

Hope that helps!

Jennifer

Thank you so much Jennifer for your helpful advice. I’ve had a look on Zazzle and as you say they are very expensive so I will need to carry on looking. I was hoping to source something a bit cheaper but I love your doors! 😊
Thanks again- Claire

Hi Claire, 

This sounds like such a wonderful project! What was the inspiration behind it, and have you ever visited the Emerald Isle before?

I've had a search myself, but was only able to find paper napkins with images of Northern Irish scenes on the following page.

You've already received some helpful tips from Jennifer, and I hope you'll be able to find what you're looking for for your art project! Feel free to share your art of Ireland here, as we would love to see it! :)

Warm regards, 

Melin

Hello everyone!This year marked my Dad’s 65th birthday. In honor of his birthday, my Mom asked me to compose a piece of music that represents his life. My entire family LOVES Irish music and Celtic culture, and so I decided to feature a couple of well-known Irish instruments (I am sure you can guess which one carries the final motif!)Please enjoy “Father’s Legacy” for yourself via this YouTube link: https://youtu.be/vIpwlUGysB4You can also follow me via Bandcamp to hear more of my work at www.petercouncell.bandcamp.com or follow me on Spotify by clicking here: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3UfCR6dFzr1p7FcQAB6K8U?si=BLzC-MJtS6W8P1ilMTUByQSomeday, my wife and I would love to take our kids to Ireland. We’ve always wanted to go! Someday...https://d2b4i25io5fq3v.cloudfront.net/19-08-2020/7a033045-97c3-49a9-9240-acc.jpeg
