... it to work by 9am. I love how everyone here works a later shift. Maybe that’s why so many people seem happier here!
Only here two days now and the house search has begun, but it has proven a lot harder than I thought. Every place we have contacted so far is either rented or already had their group showing. I guess we should have tried to be on House Hunters International. We do have a few showings booked for this weekend and Monday, so fingers ...
... After booking in we enjoyed dinner in the lounge/bar and before retiring planned the next day’s route to Galway. When planning our trip to Ireland I had been given good advice from friends Katie and Katrina on interesting places to see. Katrina suggested a visit to Newgrange would be worthwhile so the following morning we departed the hotel after an enjoyable overnight stay bound for Newgrange.
We arrived at the tourist ...
... other 'charms') to the beach, where I sat and had a brunch of fish and chips next to Brighton Pier, overlooking the sun-seekers hanging out on the pebbles. It was far too fresh by Australian standards to be out on the beach, but I guess the English have to grasp every chance they can get to sunbath, so I headed back up to the promenade and jumped on a hop-on hop-off tourist bus that showed me the sights of Brighton. There are not many. It was interesting to here the history ...
... so, of course, I had to go in. I spoke to the librarian and she gave me a few tips and said I was doing the right thing by visiting the Archives Office in Galway tomorrow.
Dodging the odd drop of rain – but still no need of the umbrella, I walked back to the hotel and enquired about buses to Galway. I went on-line and booked my return ticket. The very nice hotel staff on the desk assisted by printing the ticket off for me.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Dublin Skylon Hotel
Great Place, friendly Staff
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.
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
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
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
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
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...
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.
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
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.
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.
