Hello again friends! This is Paul again… we're sitting in O’Hare airport on Sunday afternoon. We have a 5 hour layover here so I purposely waited to blog until now. Sorry for the delay…
Saturday was a day of mixed emotions. We finally had to leave the old house in Tipperary to head back to Dublin. We came a long way to …
Our arrival in Dublin started pretty well... we got directions from people at the airport (very friendly and helpful) and got on the first part of a two part €10 bus ride. Got off, and walked a ways to the next stop, though we got a little lost and started to worry about the weight of our backpacks. We finally found the next stop (79A) and …

TravelPod Member ReviewsAspect Hotel Dublin Parkwest
We booked this hotel on hotels.com for one night. The price was 49 Euros. The hotel was very nice. I would compare it to a Courtyard in the states. There is a Dublin Bus stop right outside of the entrance and the timetable is posted (Dublin Bus does a great job of staying on schedule!). Because of an early flight out, we did not eat at the restaurant, but it seemed to be very nice as well. We would definitely go back.
