Dublin City Inn
Travel Blogs from Dublin
Today was a pretty short one.
Alison, Taylor M, Tessa, (other) Taylor F, and I all went shopping for the beginning of the day. It was so much fun :) We went to a big touristy place called Grafton street. There were a lot of high end shops (like the infamous Jack Wills that Taylor M is obsessed with and bought a 60 euro sweatshirt..) and also …
... text. Hannah wasn't thrilled to learn how vellum was made. We also checked out an exhibit on Brian Boru and the Battle of Clontarf--and wandered through the library which looked like something right out of Harry Potter with the aroma of old books, dust, and rickety ladders stretching to the far heights of shelves and shelves of ancient looking texts.. Then we wandered back up O'Connell Street-- a major thoroughfare ...
We had difficulty keeping the names and dates straight but it was clear there had been decades-long amateur struggle against England. The Irish did not have a “Benjamin Franklin” who lobbied with the French for military support and the Dutch for financial backing. Even today there is a suppression of historical facts and demolition of historic places. In the US these things would be considered ...
Today was a day for a self-guided-go-at-your-own-pace kind of tour. I did use the Ho-Ho bus, but I hopped off at a few spots that I wanted to see better than just a drive by on the bus. One of these places was Kilmainham Gaol - a prison used in the 19th century and housed many prisoners - men, women & children of all ages. Crimes seemed pretty petty for a jail ...
... music and you just can not stop dancing which is very rare…well, at least for me and my sister. So our night was very nice. Me, Iwona (my sister) and Agnieszka( a friend) rocked Dublin’s temple bar. Loads to drink and smoke ;) since Ireland is green, that sounded like a great idea to me (if you know what I mean ;) Loads of fun. Of course some Irish chicks wanted to kick my ass, (cos how possibly I could keep myself out of a trouble)…it was of course for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dublin City Inn
My wife and I spent 16 nights at the Days Inn Talbot St. from 4/11-4/27/05.
Not bad for the price...
The Days Inn in Dublin was a pretty good deal for us (59 Euro/night). The room has everything you need & the breakfast is pretty good (9.50 Euro for Full Irish Breakfast though). You couldn't pick a better place for the price if you want to be in the middle of Dublin, however, it is in the middle of Dublin so there's lots of noise. I wouldn't recommend this place if you need to sleep & relax -- there's lots of hollerin' & singing in the streets by pubcrawlers at night, but you'll pretty much have that at any of the hotels in Dublin anyways.
The room I was in (303) had twin beds pushed together, it was basic but clean and tidy. I paid 59 euro for a single room so was happy with the large bed.
Although the hotel is very conveniently located it was difficult to access by taxi as the road outside was closed off due to utility refurbishment. It is small, friendly and inexpensive. If you are looking for a no frills hotel (the rooms are small and the shower isn't the best) this could be for you. Plain but very filling breakfast.
Great Location, OK rooms
We stayed at Days Inn in August. The room was clean, though small even by European standards. The location is great for exploring Dublin, and the prices were reasonable.
Great place to stay while in Dublin
My girlfreind and I were there for 8 days, since 3rd of August.
It's a nice, clean place located in city centre.
Beds are great and it's quiet so you can sleep after a long city tour. Breakfasts are ok, you won't be hungry for some time.
Staff is friendy and very helpful.
It's a great place since it's located near O'Connell St. (about 10min walk to famous Grafton St.)and main train and bus station (but don't think this make extra noise, as I said - it quiet an comfortable).
My warmest recommendations!
spent five days here good rates mid week room very small and shower room tiny cleaning quite good breakfast good our room was on the front the noise was really bad especially early morning do not phone from here we paid 20 euros for a few minutes talk to home there is no bar here so take in your own booze as it is very expensive to buy at off licence the no smoking ban in the pubs are just stupid one day we were the only two in a pub which was normally busy and by the way i`m a non smoker so pick carefully
Good value for money (but watch the telephone charges)
Excellent value for money (for the midweek rate that I got). Room small but comfortable. Very central location.One major thing to watch - they tried to charge me 30 euros for 30-min dial-up to local ISP. Real cost is about 1c a minute, and even with big hotel mark-up it should only be 1 or 2 euros. When I objected, they gave me 60% off and promised to look into it.
The Comfort Inn on Talbot Street in Dublin is located only two blocks from bustling O'Connell Street and the Liffey River (and the Spire). It is a short walk to the Connolly Rail Station and the City Bus Station, making all parts of Ireland easily accessible from this location. The hotel is your typical Comfort Inn quality, clean - not too fancy. We have stayed in a family room three different times here and found the room to be large. The only really complaint we had was low water pressure, but we found that to be true throughout the island. Breakfast was delicious and the surrounding area has a number of nice Italian restaurants. There is a very small car park behind the hotel, but if you're coming to Dublin - I'd try to do it without a car if possible.
This Comfort Inn was in a great location to get to all the sites of Dublin and a pretty good price. The staff was friendly and helpful.
However, it was located on a noisy street and the first morning we were there there was no hot water. I also got the feeling it was not that clean. We stepped out of our room for a short time in the morning and when we returned, it was already put back together. I don't think enough time was spent in there that it could have possibly been cleaned well.
