... the stadium, we do a Mexican wave just the 2 of us and Les takes a photo for us. Then up to the top level of the stadium, level 5, an awesome view. A great tour.
We have had an email from Irish and we are catching up for a drink and dinner after he finishes work today, so back to collect our washing and then off to meet Irish. We have a lovely dinner, and we even get a visit from little 8 week old Lily ...
... the handlers realized the flight had left already but failed to re-route the bags to the flight to Dublin the next day. Our bags were still at O'Hare Airport. The baggage handler, Mr. O'Brien (very Irish, right?) sheepishly informed us that only one flight a day came in from Chicago. The next flight in would not come until tomorrow! We had plans to take a day tour that would leave early tomorrow morning which meant we wouldn't get our ...

Isle's group split in half at this point. Half went to the National Gallery of Art and the other trekked down to the Guinness Storehouse and then shopping on Grafton Street and a nice sit down in St. Stephen's Green. I think we have enough Irish souvenirs to last us a lifetime!

... were filled with people and street musicians played Celtic music and other styles of music along the streets. Many of the Dublin locals think the area is overrun with American and British tourists, especially those having their bachelor and bachelorette parties, and isn't an authentic representation of Dublin. I can see what they mean, but the architecture of the buildings is so charming and the little alleyways so picturesque that ...

Arriving early at what must be the worst camp ground for money outside of London the two females of the threesome treated themselves to an afternoon of shopping on Oxford Street. From here we met up with Suzie, a good friend of Kahlia’s for a wonderful return-to-the-UK pub dinner that went down an absolute treat.

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Inn Dublin
Loved the room - hated the noise
I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and although I love the decor and the staff are very helpful I have some advice for anyone staying there. When checking in ask for a room with a bath as they are much bigger than the one's with showers only and also, if you like your sleep, a room at the back. The construction work is horrendous and it looks to me that it will be going on for a good while. Other than that, a very enjoyable stay and the location is just right.
Best time ever!
my boyfriend and i stayed here after our original hotel booking elsewhere went q bit wrong.... we are so glad it did! this is the funkiest hotel we have ever stayed in! the rooms are large and well equipped, good decor and just the right temoerature! the bed was incredibly comfty too which always helps! there is an open air ice rink directly opposiute the hotel which meant there was a lively feel to the area. the breakfast was lovely - the bacon cooked just right and the croissants some of the best i've ever had. this hoteln is away from all the noise of town yet a very short walk for a night out. the staff were all friendly and helpful. we will definitely be back... soon i hope!
You'll have the Best time...!!
What can i say about this hotel-the food was fab, the rooms bright, airy and i loved the bathroom.
It about a 10 minute walk from the main shopping area.
The bar and restauarnt were a joy to eat in and with the irish music, toped the evening off
Surrounded by construction:
Stayed in Chief O'Neill's last spring with 3 family members. There was so much construction going on around the hotel that it was like a maze to get to the city center, which was not close. The construction projects look huge, as in not being completed any time soon. Would not stay again. Decor was cold. Food was okay. Public areas huge and not at all cozy. Location too far from everything Dublin: museums, shopping, restaurants, parks.
Attic Suites - you've got to stay in one
There are just 3 Attic suites in the hotel and if you are lucky enough to stay in one it will be a memorable experience. Huge loft room, felt like I was in NY. Big double circular jacuzzi bath, CD player, massive private wooden deck, great company. what more could you ask for.
Hate the noise
Room is ok. Food is all right. But it's so noisy. The window is sinlge-glazed. The wall is so thin. You can hear people walking/chatting outside the hotel. And you can hear people coming into their room late and leaving their room early. And they just gave us smoking room without asking first. Don't think I'll stay there ever again.
Bright, modern and fun
I stayed at Chief O'Neill's in fall 2002 and was very pleased with the place. Rooms are simply but comfortably furnished and have a very colorful and contemporary look, especially compared to many hotels in Europe which are overun with antique replicas and chintz. All rooms have a compact stereo CD player and guests are given a CD of traditional Irish music. Rooms have nice hairdryers, which is a plus since you don't have to pack your own and worry about adaptors. The location is about a 10-minute walk from Temple Bar, and a few blocks of it are off the beaten path, but is quiet at night. There's also a handy convenience store around the corner, and several pubs nearby (including Cobblestone, which has live traditional Irish music).
A reallly good balance between modern and traditional...the food was fab and you could walk to the pubs easily...Im going to stay on my next visit!!!
Loved Chief O'Neill's
We had a wonderul time in Chief O'Neill's last February. It's also about 10 minutes walk from the centre which means it's nice and quiet later at night.
Traditional yet Modern
We stumbled into Chief O'Neill's by accident having heard the authentic Irish music wafting through the gift shop we were in.
Great layout in the Lounge/Restaurant. Traditional folk group played and then Irish dancers strutted their stuff.
A fabulous afternoon's free entertainment and all "by accident".
(The accommodation looks great too) We'll certainly try to book next time we're visiting dublin.
