          Great Value for a Hostel

          I was pleasantly surprised by this hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful (gave us directions, called us cabs, etc.) and they were always available at the front desk. There were computers to use in the lounge area and the bathrooms were moderately clean. The only issue was that, like many other hostels, the showers in these bathrooms turned off every five seconds so you had to keep pressing the button to turn them back on.
          The sheets were clean as well and the beds were made every day. For about three euros I got breakfast and for two euros I rented a towel (they give the two euros for this back when you return the towel).
          Most importantly, this hostel was in a great location. It was about a two minute walk from the very center of Dublin.

          Now the showers were a little chilly. It starts by pushing a button. To bring nice hot water you do have to continually be pushing in the button in order to have a continued stream of water.

          Besides the showers -- ONE EURO breakfast. That is complete with hard boiled eggs, toast, cheese, juice, tea and coffee (if you need your fix).

          Our flight from Houston to London, then from London to Dublin was a very long 15 hours. J. and I are not ones for sleeping upright on plane flights so we simply fought between minute-naps and watching the free featured films on board. We left Houston September 5th and landed September 6th in Dublin around 5pm. For our first day in Dublin, we …

          Me and Jess at dinner together on the ship then got dressed and went to the city and met the boys coming back from Northern Ireland. We went back to the Hairy Lemon and got appetizers and beers and just hung out with my waiter from this morning (that was still there). ...

It is a tree filled park with open grassy area where you find residents reading, laying on the grass reading or playing games. It also contains a statue of Oscar Wilde where we took photos. After a brief rest stop, Janice and I head off to O'Connell Street to view the various historical buildings and since there was a Penneys store to check out the clothes. The ...
