You should be glad that they did not send your ads to some other (even more exotic) place. Ahh, the beauty of remote workplaces... :-)

No, we're not Google.

What makes you think your ads are being reviewed by people in Dublin?

OK. You want a real answer? How about this:

I am confident that Google, a multi-national company with some very bright talent, is able to hire very good people on any continent. I expect that they have training processes in place that ensure a consistent quality regardless of the location. I do not believe that people in the X office are better or worse than people in the Y office.

I'm not a big fan of Google, but I strongly believe that they are fully capable of managing this.

So, the real question here is - what happened to you that makes you think that (a) your ad was reviewed by people in Dublin, and (b) that this is a problem. Or is your problem of generic nature with the Irish?

Q My account is a USA account. Why are my ads being sent to editors in Dublin?

A Because the world keeps turning and the CA isn't always online or can handle the workload. Your ads are also look at by the India editors at certain times if that is any comfort for you. (among others)

What have you got against little green people looking at your ads anyway? ;)

my best guess from what I'm seeing is that the dublin IPs (which aren't even officially assigned to google) are just a proxy. And why not, it makes sense to have a central application and a central gateway. Keep in mind, those quality raters won't be official google employees, at least not really inside the circle, most are students etc. Keeping track on how much they work, if their work is up to google's standards and if they don't use their magic powers to secretly push their own / some sites, it's the best idea to have them use a proxy that logs their work.
I've seen raters come from that IP range, then, shortly after on a fresh site with absolutely no traffic, the same useragent came with a local IP from germany (testing if any cloaking is going on, I guess). It was obviously not a bot or a very, very advanced one (handling css + js, filling out forms and the like).
For google services like base, they are death's accountants. You see one, pray you stay alive.
