... drinks we left and headed back to the hostel and went to hang out in the common room. We got out our other bottle of wine which we shared while watching another of Vince Vaughan's Christmas movies that I can't remember the name of. When it finished, (and the wine was finished too) we made ourselves a cuppa which we drank while chatting to the Americans we'd met the night before, then headed off and went back to ...
... it has incredible Christmas markets! If you haven't experienced a European Christmas market, then you should put it on your bucket list. Our Christmas trip to Vienna, Austria in 2010 was so unforgettable. The Christmas markets have everything: food, drink, gift shops, craft stands and more. Oh and Edinburgh has a cool castle and the Hollyrood Palace where the Queen of England stays when she is in Scotland.

... was a very interesting exhibit despite my thoughts beforehand. My favorite parts of it was seeing 24 Celtic pieces of art that each took a year to make. There was so much detail in them; it was incredible. We asked a bunch of questions to one of the museum workers and he directed us toward an exhibit down the hall. (To be honest, we all thought this museum was going to be boring and we would leave right after we saw the mandatory things). Well the room ...
... river Tyne to Newcastle and onto York. We went to the most amazing church, it is absolutely huge surrounded by magnificent gardens. There has been quite a bit of rain today and a lot of mist and fog along the North Sea. We cannot complain though as it is our first wet day. According to the news there was a lot of rain in Ireland. We only have two more days on this tour. Have met some great people who are a lot of fun. I hope that all ...
... to try and throw rocks over to the Catholic side’. Sure enough, when we crossed over to Bombay Street (rather ironically named given it is considered to be the official starting place of the Troubles in 1969, when rioting Loyalists entered the area and started burning down the houses), the backyards of these houses are covered in caging to divert the rocks still thrown over by the antagonistic neighbours. Must be heaps of fun for the kids to play under ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Charleville Lodge Dublin
OK but not great
We stayed there in August because it was reasonably priced for a family of 3 - 95 euros. Based on other reviews I suspect we would have preferred the new wing. We had a ground floor family room in the old section and the closet had mold. However, the public rooms were lovely and the service was great.
It was a bit of a hike to the city center, and the walk wasn't always lovely. Next time I'll probably spend more and stay right in the center.
My partner and I stayed at the Charleville Lodge last week and I must say that our stay could not have been more enjoyable. Our room was located in their garden wing overlooking the courtyard. It was very comfortable and excellent value. The guesthouse is family run and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. This type of friendliness would not be seen in a five star hotel!!! Breakfast was hot and delicious with a great variety of food. We will be returning to Charleville Lodge without a doubt and would recommend it highly to anybody looking for comfort, quality and friendliness at a very reasonable price.
Really enjoyable stay
My wife and I had a really pleasant stay here. The hotel had just been refurbished and was in SPOTLESS condition. We would highly recommend Charleville Lodge
We stayed at Charleville Lodge for 3 nights and 4 days and couldn't have wished for a better hotel.
We stayed at Charleville Lodge for one night in November. It's in a not so great area of Dublin so if you are planning on doing a lot in Dublin I would stay somewhere more centrally located. One good point was the nice man who was working the night shift. We arrived fairly late (11:30pm) and had to check in and park our car. He was very sweet and understanding.
Old, 1950's hotel
This is an old inn, and very lumpy beds. The t.v. only gets 3 channels, if it works. It's just a very basic accommodation with no lift. Don't expect much. It's a 10 minute bus ride from the center city.
We had booked and payed our stay at Charleville Lodge in December 2003 for September 2004. 3 days before departure to Dublin the hotel manager
told us about problems with the travel agent. Supposedly the hotel didn't received our amount and if we would like to keep our room we have to pay the sum again (with a little discount). That was not really fair because our travel agent confirmed our booking and the transfer of the money. What was going wrong? We didn't accept the hotel's
offer and we advise tourists who like to stay in Charleville Lodge not to pay the full amount in advance! Perhaps they have to pay twice...
Bit far out of the city centre
Stayed here for the Robbie Williams gig last summer - nice guesthouse with a good cooked breakfast,large rooms and in a good state of decoration.Downside - the "coffee making facilities" were a coffee pot in the corridor where they ran out of cups/milk/sugar very early in the day.My only other gripe is the location - it is NOT 15 minutes walk into Dublin - it's at least a brisk half hour to Temple Bar from here.The bus is good but make sure you have correct fare or you won't get on - and the Lodge won't change any money for you. The last bus back this way is also very early so you will need to save your beer vouchers for a taxi and not have that last Guinness....Oh, and if you haven't been to Dublin and are thinking about it - JUST GO
Had a great weekend break
