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 …

Dublin to Galway

A travel blog entry by jmpncsu

... When
we arrived at Trinity College, there was a huge line to get into the
library. I talked to a student tour guide and he said that the line
looked a lot longer that it actually would be and suggested that we do a
tour with him. It was only an extra €2 more than the library entrance
fee and the line would be shorter by then. So that’s what we did. Our
tour guide was Ross and he did a great job ...

Ireland, day six

... this week. I think it was only rainy and overcast a couple of times, never for an entire day anyway.

We hit a few pubs around town and then, at the tiniest pub in Dublin, we met some Irish guys around our age. They took us to another pub away from the center of town that was full of locals and some acoustic Irish music. Was great! Randy and I were definitely the only non-Irish in the whole place! And the guys (Paul and Joey) were really ...

... river Tyne to Newcastle and onto York. We went to the most amazing church, it is absolutely huge surrounded by magnificent gardens. There has been quite a bit of rain today and a lot of mist and fog along the North Sea. We cannot complain though as it is our first wet day. According to the news there was a lot of rain in Ireland. We only have two more days on this tour. Have met some great people who are a lot of fun. I hope that all ...

    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:

    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.
