I'd just write it with @contextmanager. Making it easier to cleanly factor out exception handling is one of the main reasons that exists.

  @contextmanager
  def ignored(*exceptions):
    """Context manager to ignore particular exceptions"""
    try:
        yield
    except exceptions:
        pass

While the class based version would likely be fractionally faster, the generator based version is more obviously correct.
