Woke up in a double bed in a room by myself, luxury. Had a cruisy morning at the Mills, took a bit of time to get our boarding passes printed off the Ryanair web site, reall hard work. Josh and Ang took us out to the airport via a different route thru the countryside. Lovely little villages and countryside over the Mendips hills, an area where they …

Spent the rest of my First Day walking around Dublin - checking out some stores
My Second Day was Spent touring Dublin City! Met up with Kate and we bought a Hop On-Off City Tour Bus Ticket and traveled around checking out the sites...
... were passing through got to see the kilkenny castle and St Canices cathedral, both very stunning.
Cork (the real capital) at the very south of Ireland was a cool city. The main streets were lined with shops, and the place had a really good atmosphere about it. The Irish accent down these ways is pretty entertaining too and somewhat harder to understand. We didn't spend a lot of time here as we still have so much to see but if we ever came back we would explore it ...
... that some other bloke had been ferrying us from pub to pub. He'd done such a good job that I hadn't even noticed his existence, and I tipped him a fiver in thanks and embarrassment.
Thinking I would go directly home, I was surprised to find myself at Burger King, eating Onion RIngs with Rafael and Camille at 2am. How I'd ended up there I will never know, nevertheless I received an hour long lesson in French, they received an hour long lesson in Advanced English, before ...
... downstairs, discovered it was raining, went back upstairs for the umbrella, then went outside, realised it was too windy for the umbrella, then put the umbrella back inside, went back outside then ended up just going to the pub next door as the weather was so horrible! I got a salad sandwich and Darren got bangers and mash, and I got a hot coffee which was great after those 20 seconds in the freezing wind! We had a chat there and ate our lunch then ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blooms Hotel Dublin
Perfect Irish atmosphere and hospitality to accompany it.
We visited Blooms Novemeber 2003 and found that not only were the rooms clean, spacious with modern facilities but also that the breakfast included in the price was really good value for money.
The Bar underneath Blooms- VAT Bar was possibly the best in Dublin for it's atmosphere, live music and late opening hours- not to mention the guiness!
A fabulous Hotel all round
Good value - right in the heart of Temple Bar
Myself and a group of friends stayed at Blooms hotel on the 21st and 22nd of May 2004. The room was fine, breakfast excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and its right in the heart of the Temple bar area of Dublin - we all enjoyed our stay here and would come back again !
I booked the Blooms Hotel, Dublin, through a weekend package to Dublin. I was pleasantly surprised at the location and quality of the hotel for the price.
Blooms was Boomin'
I stayed at Blooms February 27- March 1 of this year, and thought it was very good and an excellent value for the money, with a full, hot breakfast included. Staff was uniformly friendly and helpful, Vat House Pub on first floor was lively and enjoyable, and the food was fine. The room was quiet (on 5th floor, which helped) and nice- not large, but I didn't expect it to be. Blooms' location is terrific- right at Temple Bar area and within walking distance of Trinity College, the National Gallery, O'Connell Bridge, General Post Office, St. Stephen's Green, etc. I would definitely stay there again.
I stayed here in Dec. 2000. Good location. Centrally located in the trendy part of Dublin (read: late license).
When making your booking or upon check in, request a room off the street. Drunken bar patrons yelling on the streets is no fun at 4am.
Otherwise, it's a good place to stow your gear and enjoy the city: clean, secure, good service. The room was a bit smallish, but still livable.
The pub (not Club M) was very good as was the breakfast. The car park (not affiliated with Blooms) down the block was pricy.
I have stayed in Blooms Hotel many a time and each time I have found the staff to be very friendly.I have also stayed in some of the newer rooms they have advertised (its best that you request it).The location is very central, and the night club is fantastic. Ideal for those weekend breaks.
The worst hotel I have ever stayed in
This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were dirty and of a very poor standard, the staff were extremley rude and the nightclub below was a joke. If you take my advice you will never stop in this hotel.
Although the location was ideal, (perfect for Temple Bar, Trinity College and the Tourist Office bus tour pick-up points), the hotel was past it's best. The general state of decoration was very poor. The breakfast was good and the staff all professional, albeit lacking the Irish charm which some may be expecting. The lack of tea/coffee facilities in the room was unacceptable in this day and age at this price bracket. On the two nights we were there (Mid-week in late October 2003) noise was a problem, particularly when drunk teenagers left the nite-club in the early hours of the morning.
I was a little dissapointed when I arrived at the hotel as the room was small and not as they had displayed rooms at the blooms hotel to be,on the internet. The room was nothing like it was on the web and this was not good enough in my expectations. There were marks on the walls, the radio did not work and there was chips of plaster coming off the bath.
Blooms Redeemed Itself
I wrote the previous review and have to admit, Blooms redeemed itself. We stayed in the hotel, which had an excellent location at a very fair price. The room was small, but comfortable. The hotel's pub and club were excellent, so for those seeking to see a bit of Dublin's nightlife, this is a great place to stay.
