Travel Blogs from Dublin
... cuz they couldn't go anywhere! Of course Brittney and i went to our favorite spot....Bachelor Wok. Thai food in Ireland..i know weird, but so cheap and really really good!! After that my lazy butt wanted to try and get to the blog....which didnt really go to well. Since i couldnt really get anything to load i decided to crash out early!!
Oh and Dublin was so crowded because it's freshman week...so sorry about the photos with a ton of poeple in it! Hard to avoid.
... focus was primarily (but not exclusively) on Irish archeological finds. This included some remarkably well preserved clothing, books, tools and even bodies pulled from the country's bogs. There gave a great picture of Irish life in the Iron and Bronze Ages. The Medieval Age collections were also excellent. A great museum, and certainly worth the time.
Once I left the museum, it started to rain. And it would keep raining or drizzling consistently all day. ...
... stories from times of war, such as before the Battle of the Boyne, when 14 Talbot family members sat down for breakfast in the dining room before going off to the battle, with none of them returning. There were also ghost stories. There was the ghost of Puck, who was the little watchtower man who lived behind a tiny door, who was ‘disappeared’ after failing at his job. There was also the story of the ghost of a lady that emerged out of a ...
... popping by to chat with a reclining Oscar Wilde statue and then finally finally found St Stephen’s Green. Of course, by this time, my feet were screaming at me, I was pretty knackered and not really in a mood to amble through the extensive gardens, but I certainly enjoyed observing how much the Dubliners would taking full advantage of the glorious weather in their hundreds. Sadly, Marian Keyes was not among them or, if she was, she must have been under a big hat.
... had to wake him early this morning and he never fully recovered. The train had really sturdy metal tray tables, so he had his own seat for a little while; but the novelty wore off pretty quickly.
The train took us directly to the port of Wales, where we boarded a ferry bound for Dublin. The ship was actually really nice. There was shopping, gaming, movies, food, and a kiddie ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Browns Hotel and Apartments Dublin
Shame about the Room!
We were disappointed with the room and felt it was more like a hostel room than the supposedly hotel that we stayed in. We were on the ground floor right by reception and heard the bell/phone ringing throughout the night and the heavy door permanently being slammed. The bedroom itself was badly in need of decorating and the bathroom very small, especially for my 6'4 boyfriend. The radiator did not work and we had a plug in heater that was not on when we got there in the evening and we were extremely cold! The description on their webpage is not a true description of the hotel.
When we go back to visit Dublin, we will definitely be staying somewhere more appealing.
Not as advertised
I found my room at the top of some very narrow steep stairs and no one to help. the room was pokey and had dirty window and corners. I would expect this of a cheap B&B but not a hotel that advertises itself as quality period tastefully decorated. I did no stay n the end. for £15 per night more I stayed somewhere far superior. I cannot comment on the staff as I only saw the desk guy who was not exactly welcoming
We visited the hotel in March this year, and on arriving at reception too early for check in, we were met by very friendly staff, who let us leave our bags etc, the reception, dining and sitting area were very clean and modern. However on our return later in the day when we got up to our room we saw another side to the hotel. The hotel is in need of a complete overhaul, various cracks etc in the walls, stairs, the bedroom itself was of adequate size, but required to be cleaned a bit more and the windows could do with being a bit more secure, the ensuite has some ventilation and dampness problems that didn't make it very pleasant.
Overall we felt they ahd great staff but it wasn't value for money.
Good deal in an expensive city
Stayed at Browns Hotel, Dublin Feb. 2004. Great little hotel with great staff. Excellent location, we were able to walk everywhere with no trouble. The city was very expensive and this hotel was the best we found for the price. No lift, but the staff carried all our bags ( party of 6) up and downstairs!!! Not a fancy place but clean and very adequate.
Booked an 8 bed room for 8 mates, arrived to find they had squeezed 2 extra beds in so we had 2 strangers. Lots of arguing and hassle to rectify the situation for which we were blamed. V small room. Not clean. Toilets miles away and no locks on doors ! Full irish breakfast = toast and weetabix. Avoid
I found the hotel was average in the accommodation (though we did have a dodgy window) but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Very small pokey rooms.
I stayed at the Browns hotel last minute booking via the web. I found
it expensive for what it was. A small albeit clean room. There were no
facilities to make drinks and, although tea and coffee was free it
meant a walk up and down 4 flights of stairs. The breakfast was good
but there was no way to obtain food after this. The location is pretty
central but not really picturesque. The staff were very helpful though.
I would not rush back there again.
The small and difficult to use shower was a slight inconvenance, but was more than made up for by the helpful and knowledgable staff. Great service by the staff.
Great value hotel!
Great value for money boutique style hotel in central location. Also has hostel next door for backpackers. So much to see and do in Dublin. Can't wait to go back.
great three days in dublin, recommend the Abbey theatre, and Beauleys lunch time theatre, take a city bus tour and make sure you visit the book of Kells and the long room.
