A view of Dublin city
Self-described events addict runs one of the city’s most intensely updated
Twitter feeds, encompassing arts, culture, festivals, food and big ideas. He’s also a super-friendly dude – if you’re visiting, he’ll point you towards the best ways to spend your time. Niall Byrne///@Nialler9
Not only Ireland’s foremost
music blogger, but one of the most successful in the world, we suspect Nialler9 has had clones made of himself to stay as busy as he does across the internet (and in real life too). The perfect entry-point into Dublin’s music scene (and beyond), Niall tweets playlists, exclusives, news and gig announcements. Stephen Gibson///@stephenskitchen
Food addicts will salivate all over Stephen Gibson’s succulent
social media banquets. Head chef and owner of the highly-regarded Pichet restaurant, Gibson’s feed showcases his own concoctions, collects food shots from some of Dublin’s other top restaurants and aggregates meal snaps that’ll make your belly ache.
