About me

Hi there from the Dad Blogger!

I’m Daniel and the Dad Blogger is my blog. I offer my opinion on how to keep Dads healthy and happy and how to look after themselves.

I truly believe that Dads need to play more and I try to recommend toys, activities and holidays that the children and I have loved. Having time away for holidays, new activities and life experiences is really important to our family life. On the other side of this, I think that Dads need to stay fit and healthy and perhaps need a break from the melee of having children in the house.

I also cover mental illness. I am affected by Type II Bipolar Disorder and this blog is also about combining my diagnosis, and the associated symptoms, with family life. I am married with three awesome children Róisín (11), Delilah (6) and Jonah (4). My wife has and always will be the closest, most patient and supportive person during hypomanic phases. She also understands the following depression and is caring and empathetic until it passes. I also have this little guy to accompany me on walks or runs in the park. His name is Buddy.
