... found seven years ago. Since the bodies are preserved so well, with hair and leather items, archaeologists are able to tell what they wore, what tools they used, what they typically ate in their lives and what their last meal was, how they wore their hair (which had implications on their social status), how they most likely died, how old they were, the list goes on and on. Because of all this information from the bodies, we can also gather information about the society ...
... poles or tv dishes. We went to a very posh pub for lunch; curried parsnip soup and scone, clotted cream and a pot of tea each. Super yummo. Mission to get to Bristol Airport ; decided to ignore Tomtom and follow the signs. ****. Right through Bristol . Finally arrived. Fog. Chaos. Horrible airport or maybe we have not yet found the right place to be. Costs a pound to weigh your suitcase , costs a pound to print 1 page boarding pass. OMG the joys! ...
... like American Idol, where each of the 38 European countries that participated in the competition gets to vote to determine the winner. It was at first unbelievable, then just sad to watch as by a landslide vote, Conchita won! No further comments on this subject … at least not until I’m back on US soil.
The liveliness of Dublin was such fun. We tapped our feet and clapped our hands to the music of ...

I bid farewell to Mieke, who is heading back to Hamburg tomorrow, and had a quick siesta at the hostel before meeting up with Emillie and Marion for dinner. After a fruitless search for a Thai restaurant with main courses under €17, we ended up eating at the same place that I had eaten breakfast. Turns out their dinners are just as good! When we got back to the hostel we hung out in the common room, I learned some new French slang words! For ...
... this and that, went to bed themselves. Starving, I went out to find a grocery store which having already spent two nights in Dublin wasn't a problem. I ate heartily, then collapsed into a deep and dreamless sleep.
I had been in Dublin the week before, and was already hugely impressed by both it's people and charm. On my first day, I'd joined a free walking tour of the city which was hands down the best thing I could have done. 'Eoin' our tour guide, pronounced 'Owen' in ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Dylan Hotel Dublin
Jaw droping design with no expence spared
Celebrated my wifes 40th birthday with a nights stay at the Dylan. It is by far the most amazing hotel we have stayed in. The staff were delightful, the room was beyond expectation and the restaurant fantastic.
From the moment that you enter the front courtyard and entrance to the Dylan - the experience begins. And, it is nothing short of perfect. This hotel designer, staff, and management have "got it".
We stayed at the Dylan for Magic's birthday and had a fantastic weekend. :-)
just spent 2 nights at Dylan for my beloved's 40th. although only opened 2 months ago, this place has really got it's act together. feels new with everything pristine but no sense of panic you sometimes feel in new hotels. Pricey considering it's a boutique and by definition short on facilities, but great staff, trendy and smart. marked down because it's not central.
WOW - that's all i can say about this hotel. For such a new property this place has everything almost perfect.
The Dylan was a dream come true! My boyfriend and i were looking for something 'boutique' with lots of character and a bit exclusive. I'd seen all the pictures on the stylish website and thought it looked stunning but I have to admit, I did think 'Can it really be that lovely?'. And I have to say that it was better than the web-images. The actual space is bigger and more atmospheric than I expected and despite being high design, felt very relaxed and welcoming. The staff were all wonderful and made you feel completely at home- in fact I'd like to move in (just don't tell my cat...!). We managed to drag ourselves away from our beautiful room (gorgeous furnishing), driffted down through the amazing corridors (really- they are very cool!) to eat at Still. We are both food lovers, and both the food and the service were superb. The location was great too. I'd initially been worried that it might be a bit far out of town but it was just a nice 15-20minute stroll away from Trinity and it was actually nice to get away from the bustle of Temple Bar. The area that surrounds the Dylan is a little bit like London's 'Notting Hill' with some great bars and places to eat. What more can I say, except I want to go back soon! And if you go, I hope you like it too!
I heard through word of mouth about this new hotel that was opening in Dublin. Out of curiousity, I wanted to see what the buzz was all about. Being a jaded New Yorker, my expectations were some what squewed to the negative, however, I was very pleasantly surprised. The design of the building, from the rooms to the lounges, to the restaurant, were incredible.
I've stayed at a number of hotels in Dublin, but nothing like this. I booked through the website because the pictures looked stunning, but when I got there the place exceeded my expectations. Wow! you have to see it to believe it!
Gorgeous decor throughout the lobby. Courteous staff, very friendly. The bar and restaurant had a vibrating buzz, it was a busy night but everybody seemed to be relaxed and enjoying.
I was brought up to the room by one of the receptionists and surprise! I got a beautiful room with a plama on the bathroom!
Oh! and the 7th Heaven bed... best night sleep in my life!
Really worth the money
Firstly even though they have gone through a series of soft openings, there are still learning and its going to be a while before everything comes together. This is my only quibble ; they are charging the highest price for their standard rooms in Dublin at present., and this is for the moment a unfinished product in terms of some aspects of servive and logistics. However I had one of the best nights sleep ever in a hotel I really did not want to get out of bed. The rooms are fantastic, contempory but comfortable, and even though in a new extension they have managed to create some character. The public areas are great , the libary reminds me of Carlisle Bay in Antiga. The room service snacks were of a good standard but the breakfast buffet was poor. In general the service needs to work to a slightly higher standard but that will come with time. Great location also.
Got kicked out of the clarence as bill clinton had the whole place booked supposedly. So they transferred me here. Gorgeous decor though no taxi drivers could find it and i had to wait 30 mins for my cab the next morning. Awesome bar and lovely staff. mod cons take a bit of figuring out but other than that the kind of place you never want to leave!
