We set off today early to visit the post office to post something's home, as we think there is not enough space in our bags. The post office was just up the road from our hotel, to send 2 kilos (minimum to send a parcel) was €32, we said no thanks and walked out. We then packed the car and set off for Dublin.
Our directions took us …
... And by saying ''slightly'' im being dead nice right now) As for an island it self? As soon as you leave Dublin and go on a country side specially in a beautiful sunny day it’s the view you will never forget ( tip: Use that sunny day because this one, might be the last day in the year to use in Ireland, so don't sit on your ass and do **** nothing) Personally… my favourite city in Ireland is Galway. Maybe, because I always managed to be there on a sunny day hehe ...
... so we took the opportunity to go to Bray, a seaside town with a little hike. After about a 20 minute train ride, we stepped off into the coolest town ever. You look out onto the Irish Sea and turn around and see the hike (Bray Head). We walked along the boardwalk then started the trek up the hill. At first it was really easy, nice and paved and we were moving right along. Then it started to get a little rockier, a little weedier, and a little steeper. But ...
... in Northern Ireland, there were many Catholic-Protestant clashes, along with resistance from the IRA. "The Troubles" finally ended in 1998 with a peace settlement, although the IRA didn't officially announce the end of its campaign until 2005. While Mr. Steves says Ireland has reason to be optimistic about the future, Jack told me a different story. He mentioned that Ireland got 10 million Euro from the EU to rescue its banks, and yet the country still ...
... veges, etc - the Dutch contingent hadn't tasted mint sauce before so I had to talk them into trying it). The Dutch actually looked a little shocked at how much the Irish were drinking. The party went on until rather late. I did manage to get back into Dublin though and then got woken early by three other travellers taking 90 minutes to pack. Still, such is life in a dorm with people who don't know how to behave.
Well, that's all folks (for now at least).

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Dublin-Northwood
This hotel looks so new and clean, it could have been opened last week! It is well situated, 10 mins from the airport by courtesy bus (please remember to tell reception when you check-in that you would like a return transfer to the airport - the bus only has 10 seats and at peak times if you aren't booked, you won't get on), in a lovely setting.
Top Class Airport Hotel
My wife and I stayed in the Crowne Plaza Hotel last weekend as part of a small group. Upon check-in we were upgraded to an executive room. The room was lovely and the shower was fantastic. We had lunch in the bar and, later that night, had a few drinks. The food was nice and the only slight problem was that the service in the bar was quite slow.
Having been in the other hotels at Dublin Airport, the Crowne Plaza raises the bar a little bit as, apart from being a really good hotel in it's own right, the fact that it is a few minutes from the airport (by courtesy coach that you call from the Arrivals Hall), means that there is no aircraft noise. It is in it's own grounds so there is no traffic noise either.
The facilities in this hotel were quite nice and the service was attentive but not outstanding. The service to and from the airport is exceptional and the parking is free. I like to spend the night after a transatlanic flight near the airport to give me a day to get over jet lag. The hotel is located very close to the airport but you do not feel close and ther is a lovely park across the street to take walks in. A few quirks...
Three things made this seem like an uncomfortable experience.
Great hotel with free parking
When using Dublin Airport we usually stay at the Great Southern Hotel which is really nice but aircraft noise begins at 6.30 am each and every morning.
This time we tried the Crowne Plaza and were very impressed. Got a good rate on the net, modern large room with no airport noise and with free parking for a week. Most impressed.
A Must Stay!
My husband and I were extremely impressed with this hotel and the staff. From the time they promptly arrived at the airport to pick us up free of charge, to walking into this stunning Hotel and the amazing rooms. They even made arrangements for our car rental to be waiting for us the next morning. Extremely friendly and helpful. The room was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. We didn't want to leave. This made part of the charm of Ireland an experience we will never forget!
I stayed here on business in October 2004 and was very impressed by everything in this hotel. The rooms were comfortable with modern decor and the bathroom with large walk in shower was excellent after a busy day. The food is great and a wide choice is available. All staff were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. A first class hotel 10 minutes from Dublin airport with regular courtesy coach.
I was thoroughly amazed when the porters who had picked us up from the airport pulled up in landscaped gardens outside a modern building and told us that this was the Crowne Plaza.
Great stay at the crowne plaza
I am just back from a weekend trip to dublin and stayed at the crowne plaza. I have never stayed in a better hotel. The rooms were stunning, the staff very helpful and couldnt do enough and the food delicious. I will definately be back in the near future.
Located 10 minutes drive from Dublin Airport - hotel courtesy coach runs 24 hours to/from airport - Crowne Plaza (part of the Holiday Inn chain) is located in a delightful park setting, providing a calm, quiet location so close to the airport. The staff are extremely professional, and welcoming, showing great attention to ensuring that you feel a special guest. In my case, I have to especially thank the Crowne Plaza Courtesy Coach driver (Ron O'Sullivan) who went the extra mile to find my laptop bag, which I had somehow left behind in the airport carpark. My stress was eased considerably by the efficient and concerned way in which he dealt with this situation. The hotel room was extremely well equipped, spacious, and decorated in a modern style. I paid a very reasonable advance booking flat rate of 120 euros (approx $145), and for this I had a large (for European standards) air conditioned room with 2 comfortable queen sized beds for myself, partner & child (a double king sized bed for 2 adults only at same rate); a lovely designed bathroom with seperate power shower & bath; internet access via tv for hourly charge; films on demand; standard drinks bar (sensors beneath drinks, so do not lift drinks for curiosity's sake, otherwise it will show on your bill); room service food was quick, and okay, but not brilliant. If you have been disappointed by the standard of ****hotel accommodation at this price level in Europe, then this hotel will reassuringly meet your expectations. Although primarily directed at Business users, this is a great hotel to stay in if your having to stop over for one night in between flights. 24 hour coffee in reception also a plus whilst waiting to depart for airport..
