Day 1 or Day 0?

A travel blog entry by helenlilley on Sep 03, 2013

I finally arrived in Dublin today. Although technically my trip started on 2 September, when I got on the plane, today is the day the holiday actually starts. Sort of.

I got to the hotel at around 1pm, with that strangely dichotomous feeling of being so excited to be in a new place and super keen to start exploring, while also …

Leprechauns!

... something about staying in hostels that makes it feel like more of an adventure for me. Since Devon interned in Dublin last summer she was very excited to be back and I was very excited for her to be our personal tour guide. When we landed she was so excited to be back I could almost see tears in her eyes, which made me remember how excited I got when I came back to Australia (I lived there for 8 months when I was 14 and went to school there). ...

J&C to Paris

... up with the kids for lunch. You will see plenty of photos of the food we eat as that is Jessie's thing. Mine apparently is getting photos of one of us in doorway. I can't help it as they are usually ornate or qwerky and I prefer pictures with someone in them. The kids then went off to meet Connor before flying out to Paris. I decided on a ...

... out and very park-like. Even though it is large and flat the kids were all walking; I guess they don't ride bikes because of the very frequent and abundant rain! Later Orla and I showed up at the office so we could have a Board Of Directors meeting with Pat and Dennis for our Irish company. Had to discuss what would happen if one or more of us ever got hit by a bus! (And as it turns out, later that evening we all 4 almost got taken out on our way back from dinner ...

Cruise ends.-Travel to Dublin

... sunny day the ride was very smooth and fast (140kph, 90mph) on the tolled motorway, reaching Fiumicino in just 45 minutes. Again we utilised the Diner's Club Le Anfore Business Lounge for wifi and a snack. Checking email we found that we had not confirmed our reservation for the shuttle, hence, they had not sent a shuttle! The lounge was near gate G11 and our gate was H18 so we had to leave early to find our way to H18 a slightly complex mission involving going ...

    This hotel is very nice. Our room was large with two double beds and one twin. Cathedral ceilings and floor to ceiling windows really add to the room. Breakfast was also spot on. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

    This was great spot to access interesting areas of Dublin. Our room was small but clean and cosy. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom worked well and it was very quiet. We enjoyed walking through St Stephen's Green.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Stauntons on the Green Dublin

    Disappointing

    from

    spent three days in this guest house, when i arrived the car park was no where near the guest house a staff member parked it, when I wanted to leave each day in my car I had to wait over half an hour for it to be returned to me-very inconvient. did not get a good night sleep from the noise of traffic on the street. Breakfast was adequate but would expect more for the price we payed. overall a very dissapointing stay would not reccommend this place

    Best Location in Dublin

    from

    Stayed at Staunton's in July - fabulous location - can walk to most museums, shopping, tourist attractions. Charming rooms, garden, friendly and accomodating staff. Excellent value. Ask for a front room if you enjoy the street sounds, a garden room if you prefer quiet. I always prefer the front overlooking St. Stephen's Green.

    Needs quite a bit of sprucing up

    from

    Booked this B&B because of it's location, great idea, because of it's proximity to everything. Staff was generally nice but a little rough around the edges. The rooms though were very run down. Cracks in the ceilings, wallpaper at least 20 years old and what was that with the toilet? It was so close to the wall only skinny butts could fit comfortably. I don't have a big butt, but even my wife did not fit entirely. Would not return to Staunton's.

    A bit like Faulty Towers, perhaps

    from

    This place definitely has a good location, and that is worth quite a bit in Dublin these days. The rates are also low, especially since they include cooked breakfast. However, I also encountered issues that should not exist in any place posing as a hotel:

    1. Hygiene was not great; the space behind the window shutters had clearly NEVER been cleaned, so huge balls of dust emerged when I shut them for the night.

    2. There is an electric kettle in each room, with teabags and instant coffee. However, the kettles were so dirty that nobody in their right mind would use them (an effective way of cutting cost, perhaps?)

    3. Make sure to request a room facing the back garden, as the road out front carries a lot of traffic and the windows are old (no triple glazing here..)

    All in all, you will definitely feel you're in a cheap place. But if you don't expect much, you'll be OK.

    Room with a view in a house of character

    from

    I am currently staying in this hotel. It's made up of three townhouses joined together and therefore no elevators unfortunately. However, none of the rooms are too high up and they have wide staircases anyway. The rooms are spotless and with nice pine furniture, even the small one I was in. My room is a small compact single room but with all the amenities. Moreover, what intrigued me was a beautiful view of the garden behind the hotel and a skylight over the bathroom which gave it an airy impression. The only thing I have to say is that the TV is practically useless as reception is very poor on all the channels. Moreover, the overwhelming Irish breakfast served in other Dublin hotels is not available here even though you still get cereals, yoghurt and a modest fry up. However, it's good enough for me.

    Hotel with bags of Character

    from

    Having just returned from a two-night stay in the hotel, I was a little worried, having booked the hotel, having not read the previous feedback.

    We had an excellent stay, we have previously stayed at Jury's Custom House; Staunton's was a refreshing change from the "normal" hotel room experience. Our room was excellent, magnificent ceilings, fireplace and view over the garden. Their were some down points such as the breakfast was ok but not fantastic and the bathroom needed a few new fittings.

    Never the less, the hotel was an opportunity to stay in a Georgian town house, overlooking a wonderful park, within easy walking distance of the main centre. If you are looking for a hotel with bags of character Staunton's is for you...

    Recommend highly

    from

    I stayed here for 2 weeks in February. I had a spacious room, with very high ceilings and two tall bow windows overlooking the garden. This is not a "modern hotel", sparkling clean, with each room exactly the same. It is several townhouses joined together. While some of the furnishings were "gently worn", I found that to be part of the charm. My bathroom was very small, no tub, just a shower. However, that shower had the best water pressure of any shower I have used in many trips to Ireland. Breakfast is included. The staff is friendly and the location, on St. Stephen's Green, could not be better. The price was very reasonable. I loved it and would happily return.

    Give it a miss

    from

    The room I had was dreadful and the water cold.

    Highly recommended

    from

    My friend and I spend a wonderful few days staying at Stauntons on the Green last month. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great. I found no faults with this place!

    Staunton's is Great

    from

    We just returned from a week's stay at Staunton's on the Green, and can't say enough good things about it. The location and accomodations were certainly good, but the service was exceptional. Everyone went out of their way to help make our first trip to Dublin as enjoyable as we always thought it would be. No question was too trivial, and the staff (Catherine, Colette, Joanne, and Brian) were just spectacular. If we ever return to Dublin, we will definitely stay here again. Great experience all around.
