    From Dublin, Ireland.

    Hiya! I just found this site tonight. I'm really looking forward to having a good read.

    I live in Dublin, Ireland. I used to do a lot of urban exploring in the late 80's and early 90's. Although, it wasn't really called urban exploring back then, it was just exploring derelict gafs! Dublin was full of old crumbling houses back then. I loved the excitement, and adrenaline of exploring long forgotten places.

    The most exciting place I explored was an abandoned house. It looked like a family had suddenly got up, and walked out, leaving everything behind. There was still settings at the kitchen table, laundry draped over a kitchen door, clothing in wardrobes, etc, etc. Everything looked grey, all thick with dust, and cobwebs. It must have been sitting like that for more than 20 years. It was incredibly eerie. I loved the place! All these years later, I still have reoccurring dreams about that house. Sadly, that house is long gone. It was knocked down around 1990.

    I haven't gone exploring in yearssss, but recently I've been addicted to watching videos of urban explorers on YouTube. How I wish there'd been such things as camera phones back in the days I was exploring. I'd love to go exploring again. Although, not sure I'd be as quick at hopping over walls, etc, anymore. LOL! ;)

    Looking forward to hearing all your stories.

    Ructions. (A)

    Welcome to the Forum.
    I"d edit your intro to add "from Dublin " make the intro more noticeable in case there"s any locals that might get in touch with you? I know there"s some Irish members but none that come too mind. Must be a Celtic thing ;)

    Thanks for the advice, Acid Reflux! I appreciate that.

    It's been many, many years since I've gone exploring. So, I don't know of any good places. Ireland is full of so called "ghost estates." That might sound exciting, but it's not really... There are no real ghosts, just housing estates that were built before the recession. When the housing market crashed, the houses didn't sell, and whole estates were left empty. I don't imagine they'd be of much interest, because most of the houses were never even lived in. Just empty shells...

    But I'm sure there must be plenty of interesting places around Ireland.

    I was looking at photos, and videos on the forums last night. There are some truly amazing places. People have taken such professional photos and videos, I don't think I'd ever be able to keep up with the fantastic standards on here. But I am tempted to do at bit of exploring, at some stage, maybe... ;)

    This is a great site, I'm so glad I found it. I love the way people are so respectful of the properties they find. There is a great group of people on here!

    EDIT.... I can't seem to change the name of the thread, so I added my location at the top of my comment. :)

    Right at the top of your first post, there should be a thread tools button.

    Click that and there should be an edit thread option :thumb

    Thanks Zer081! I followed your directions, and edited the title.

    Christ, I'm a disaster! If I can't manage to edit a title of a thread, then I shudder to think of the quality of videos I'd made urban exploring. LOL!

    Thanks both of you for your help, and advice. Much appreciated!

    I spent ages reading threads last night, and today. I love the residential thread. Old houses, with furniture, and belongings left behind are my very favourite. It's so interesting seeing how people lived, and trying to figure out the story behind it all. I'm so glad I found this site.

    28 days later is a class name!
