... environment involves a completely saturated acidic environment, where considerable concentrations of organic acids and aldehydes are present. Layers of sphagnum and peat assist in preserving the cadavers by enveloping the tissue in a cold immobilizing matrix, impeding water circulation and any oxygenation. An additional feature of anaerobic preservation by acidic bogs is the ability to conserve hair, clothing and leather items." Both Old Croghan Man and Clonycavan ...

... our week in Ireland. We decided to stop at Castle Coombe, the prettiest village in England. Lucky for us it was a miserable day as there was no one there and we managed to get a car park in the village, otherwise it would have been a very long walk in the misty rain. We visited the church circa 1250, with the village following in 1450 ish. Dr Doolittle, and Warhorse were filmed here, to name 2 that I know! Apparently a good place to do this as there are ...

... finale. Having no idea what he was referring to I asked what the big deal was all about. Then he asked if I hadn’t heard of “Conchita.” Whipping out his cell phone he first showed me a picture of his dad who is one of the producers of the show. Then he shows me 'Conchita’, a man wearing a beaded evening gown, long coiffed hair and a full beard! That night we watched the last 20 minutes of what ...

... in the family crypt bellow St. Michan's.

Feeling distinctly chilled from the crypts of St. Michan's, Mieke and I opted to visit the National Museum of Ireland: Archeology, which had a really cool collection of Stone-Iron age tools, weapons and jewelerry from Irish history. Although the museum didn't really weave a consistant narrative some of the information was quite interesting. The museum also had mummies who were found in the peat bogs that cover ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Dublin Skylon Hotel

    Great Place, friendly Staff

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Skylon hotel in February.We had just flown in from Australia and were very tired.Upon arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a warm welcome from the friendly reception and were in our room within 5 minutes.The room was clean and modern,well heated and spacious.The following evening we had dinner in the hotel resteraunt which was one of the nicest meals we have ever had and a great price.The staff at the hotel were fantastic and helped us with any queries we had.City was only 5 minutes away by bus and the taxi from the Airport cost us around 10 euros.I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to visit dublin.

    Hated the Skylon Hotel!

    from

    We stayed in the Skylon for two nights - 5th and 6th Match 2005 and paid EUR130.80 per room per night. We booked it using their website. Don't do it! Friends of ours booked at the hotel and got a rate of EUR99 for what they maintain was a nicer room. The website reservations company charged us EUR43 for the privilege of booking with them. They say it is a deposit. Never again!

    Great hotel, ideal location

    from

    The Skylon hotel is a great hotel in a great location. Only 5 min to the centre of town and 10 min from the airport. It is on all the main bus routes. The room we got was large and had great night views of the city. The staff were friendly and very helpfull and nothing was too much trouble. Great fun was had in the bar also. A hotel not to be missed if you ask me, we will definately be back

    Great value, great rooms, staff a little unhelpful though

    from

    The hotel itself is superb value for money and my room was spacious, well equipped and immaculately clean. With the exception of the broken toilet seat (actually in bits placed on top of the toilet) which was fixed shortly after I reported it, the room was fantastic.

    My tv and radio were not working so they changed my room

    from

    Very friendly staff easily acess to city centre via many buses passing the hotel easy acess to airport via many buses. Restaurant above average with superb breakfast found bar food and drinks very expensive. Rooms tidy but old fashioned but noticed that as we were leaving the rooms were all getting a face lift redecoration and new fittings. This hotel is recommended mainly for the very exceptional staff.

    Excellent hotel excellent staff

    from

    What a lovely Hotel. From the word go the staff were friendly. I had to make a lot of changes with my booking due to flight changes,we had quite a number of rooms booked and I spoke firstly with the reservations dept who passed me on to their sales manager as we had quite a large group. The lady I delt with was a pleasure to speak with and told me everything I needed to know about the hotel. The hotel rooms were decorated lovely and I was supprised to see a flat screen tv in my room (It is not offen you see them in hotels) The room was bright and cheerful as were the staff... We will definately be back to The Skylon...

    A Fine Hotel

    from

    When you first walk into this hotel the lobby is beautiful and classy. It might even be a little too classy for the average tourist dressed in jeans and t-shirts. It did not appear to be a place that would welcome children running around. We got to our room and there was nothing wrong with it. We did stay in nicer rooms on our trip, but there was nothing wrong with this room. It is a little old, but it was clean and everything worked fine. We would have liked to be a little closer to the center of the city. We took a tour bus of the city and we first had to get a cab to the main part of the city to catch the bus, and then get back at the end of the day. It was an 8 euro fare, 10 in traffic. There were many busses that passed by the hotel and I am sure we could have taken them to the city center for less, but it was raining hard and we didn't want to stand out at a bus stop. The bar downstairs was nice. There were restaurants and a little store right across the street from the hotel. This is a fine place to stay, but we would probably not stay here again, we would find something in a little better location.

    An unforgettable hotel but for all the wrong reasons!

    from

    Not a hotel I would recommend in a hurry. The best thing about it is the lobby - it goes downhill from there.

    Enjoyed our stay at the Skylon

    from

    We both really enjoyed our stay at the Skylon, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The city centre is easily accessed by many buses that pass by the hotel. Would recommend it to anyone wishing to travel to Dublin.

    The Reservation Staff don't have a clue

    from

    I tried ( 3 phone calls) to get a reservation and was unsucessful. The reservation staff simply do not have a clue. I had booked a tour with a very good tour company that issues vouchers for hotel accommedatins in Ireland. The Skylon is listed in there book as accepting the vouchers.
