Overnight then rent an auto and see the rest of Ireland.
Top of the morning to ya! Which unfortunately was not the greeting we were met with, as several Irish citizens who we came into contact with merely responded to our polite questions with grunting; more troll under the bridge than smiley little leprechaun. I would say. Any-who, arriving (in the rain) to our ‘posh’ hotel that we had …
... pie and I had lasagne, pub style.
Also, I found a Starbucks just down the street….
Our next day was a travelling day. The idea was to drive from Dublin to Belfast, take the ferry to Scotland and then off to Edinburgh. Upon talking to the hotel concierge about the best route etc etc and all sorts of advice he mentioned that we may not be able to take the car out of Ireland. This possibility combined ...

Then, his "girly wife" was in trouble and he called her and fielded her calls, checking the levels of the river Liffey to quell her fears. "The tide is high but it's not up to the wall," he told her.
"Are we in Dublin?" I asked when apparently we were well into Dublin. "Where are all the people?" This time the cabby swiveled around to look at me as if to say "hot dignity damn what ...

I told them most people from KS don't know where Gardner, KS is, let alone someone who is from Portland, OR! It was getting late and we were all tired so we went our separate ways, but not before the two ladies deemed themselves my "travel mommies" and gave me lots of "mommy hugs". They also told me I was welcome to come visit them in Portland anytime :)
The next morning, I set off ...

Greeted with smiley helpful staff in a beautiful reception area. Very disappointing as we opened the door to very bog standard rooms, have seen better rooms in a Travelodge. Spa facilities lovely.

Historical Traveler Reviews Camden Court Hotel Dublin
Great value hotel
Stayed at the Camden Court last week and thought it was excellent value as Dublin hotels are very expensive. Room was clean, breakfast was ok, although the girl serving the hot food had a "face like thunder"!
Walked to the Temple Bar area every night (got a taxi back though!) loads of lovely places to eat - spoilt for choice.
I also used the swimming pool, sauna, steam room etc. which was an added bonus as not many 3 star hotels have these facilities.
All in all, I would highly recommend this hotel.
OK- but nothing special
Stayed at the Camden Court this week thanks to the reviews posted on this site. The hotel is around the 3 star level, warm welcome, all the facilities (especially keep fit!) that you might need. Rooms are small and clean and ours had a strange smell in the bathroom (reported) but it did not spoil the stay. Restaurant only used for the (included) breakfast but, whilst a bit limited in choice, there was plenty of food available. I would not pay for the cooked breakfast if it was not included. Staff in restaurant not particularly friendly and one was on the mobile whilst serving hot food. The hotel is sited OK for St Stephens Green and Grafton Street but the area is a bit seedy and the walk from the centre not really enjoyable. Certainly Temple Bar is best visited by taxi. I think the charge (?375 for 2 nights) is extortionate but I'm told that Dublin hotels are expensive. We've stayed in Washington DC and Chicago for less!
Great weekend spot
We were very pleased with this hotel. We arrived early off a Ryan Air flight, hoping to just leave our luggage and they gave us our room.
Rooms were clean and spacious, with a bathtub, not just a shower. No trouble at all with street noise- we slept very well. It's convenient walking distance from all the major sites. Breakfast seating was a bit slow in the morning, but they did have a huge crowd. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
When planning our trip to Dublin, I had booked a room at the Best Western. But after reading the reviews for that hotel on TripAdvisor, I changed my mind and decided to look elsewhere (thanks!). The reviews that I had read for the Camden Court Hotel were bang on! The hotel was in a great location and it was very clean. Our room was a nice size with all the necessary amenities for a three star hotel. The breakfast was good quality and the hotel staff were very friendly. The concierge consistently recommended excellent places to eat and visit while in Dublin. The only complaint that I had was the noise at night. Our room faced onto the courtyard of the hotel and both nights we were awaken to the noise of either drunken people screaming or laundry being delivered at the crack of dawn. Other than that, I would highly recommend this hotel.
This is a fantastic hotel. Great service, Friendly staff, extremely good food and all great value.
There is a great atmosphere in the bar, and the staff go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.
To top it off this holel is in a great location in walking distance of the City Centre.
I would highly recomend staying here.
Great value central luxury hotel
This is a rare find amongst the pretentious, overpriced Dublin hotels.
A lovely modern, clean and luxurious place to stay - 5 mins walk from Grafton street. Has a great gym and pool, and secure free car parking.
Breakfast fairly average. We have stayed in many of Dublin's hotels, including the 5 star ones. This is the all-round winner!
Nothing wrong with modern hotels
Took my wife on a birthday treat weekend to Dublin in October 2003.Stayed two nights at this modern but very friendly hotel. A few steps further out of the heart of the city than you might wish especially after a few pints of the black nectar. Big reception area and pleasant Piseogs bar. Good leisure complex; almost boiled in the jacuzzi! All the staff had big welcoming smiles and everything very clean. Would stay there again without hesitation
Within walking distance of best parts of Dublin
We're from Dublin, having left in 1999. Whenever we get home for a holiday, the Camden Court is our hotel of choice. Its located at the top of Camden Street, and is a brisk walk (i.e.1 mile or about 15 minutes) from Grafton St and Stephen's Green. Due to its location (in what used to be a seedier area of the city) the hotel is close to the South Circular Road which leads to a convenient moterway hub for getting in and out of the city. We use the Caden Court as a base for trips down to Waterford, out to Galway and up to Cavan. The hotel itself is clean and tidy. The rooms are small-ish by US standards but adequately appointed. The price can be expensive (as is usual for Dublin hotels) but its a good idea to shop around on the internet for better rates than the hotel itself can offer.
I stayed at this hotel in July 2000, and it was great. The location is about 1/2 mile away from Temple bar, but it is a nice walk! Make sure to request a non-smoking room if you are not a smoker! The smoking rooms here are very intense!
Stayed at Camden Court 2 nights in April,2002 with a tour group. Great fascillities (pool, lounge, reception area) and clean, nice rooms. Wonderful location in walking distance to most everything in Dublin.
