So flew to Dublin today. I feel sorry for Dublin. It's the Martha to Rose .... It has to compete with my love for Scotland .... And it may very well fail. I WILL remain open minded to it ... And see how it goes lol Dr Who reference wiiiiin. So flew with Aer Lingus, which does make me think of cunnilingus ... Flight was very uneventful and only …
We drove out of Portrush at 8:30, and it occurred to me that I've seen very few cats on the tour, and none that I could take a photo of. Have seen lots of dogs, however (including two corgis), and enough cows and sheep to last me the rest of my life. In fact, most of my photos will be labeled “sheep,” “cow,” “another …
Because I chose to fly on the Friday before Labor Day weekend, John decided we should leave for SeaTac early because of the likelihood of godawful traffic. So we left the house at 2:55 for my 6:45 flight. Less than an hour later, I was walking past the Starbucks after the security check. Of course, if we hadn't left early, we would've gotten stuck …
Holy Cow - We Are In Dublin!!!
Our trip here went really well!! Our plane had a giant clover painted on it - that was pretty cool!!
The trip to the hotel was scary - they drive on the wrong side here!! But Matt did really well - both with the driving and with keeping me calm!
After settling in for a few minutes we made …
Hi everyone just wanted to let you know I made it safe. After a long journey. I was delayed at the Chicago airport for 6 hours, not in the airport but on the plane. We had to stay in the plane the whole time. there were delays in and out of Chicago due to horrible weather conditions. We waited until the storm passed before we could take off. It was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Harding Hotel Dublin
Harding Hotel Great!!
Can not fault the place. Room and breakfast was spot on and evening entertainment (Darkey Kelly Band) brill
Decent place to stay if you want to save money
The Harding is your basic hotel in a good location. If you can get a good rate, I would recommend staying here if you just need a place to sleep. Right next to ChristChurch and convenient from the airport bus (get off at Wood Quay and walk up the hill).
This hotel is good value for money as very centrally located for the price. The rooms are clean but basic. The pub downstairs is good but I thought the breakfast was poor.
Great for weekend break
my partner and i stayed at the harding on the 07/02/04 for the weekend and totally enjoyed our stay there. the room was plenty big enough and clean, the bed was very comfyand clean pressed sheets. Excellant breakfast great way to start the day,would stay there again if ever in dublin. Did not rate temple bar or grafton street.
Harding Hotel.... just OK also
We stayed at the Harding Hotel just last week. Although we had a blast in Temple Bar, the hotel was mediocre. The towels smelled like smoke (which wasn't fun after a night of drinking Guinness in smoky pubs), the hair dryer smoked when I turned it on, the shower was moldy, the bed was lumpy. The location was great, we were right next Christchurch and the Viking Walk. I just wouldn't call this hotel experience great.
The pub downstairs was nice and the people there were friendly. The hotel staff was nice but not overly accomodating. We are laid back people and we found ourselves a little irritated with the attitude.
Wouldn't stay there again :(
Went w b'friend and one of his mate; we booked a room w one double bed and one single. the room was clean and big, nice view, easy for pubbing and the price is v fair. Apart from the shower is a bit small overall is very good, we def come back there.
I love Dublin
I had 3 great days in the best city in the world, Dublin. Taking my teenage daughter, meant it was one extended shopping trip. The Guinness storehouse was brilliant. Ivan Beschoff continues to serve the best fish and chips in the world and I heartily recommend the shark and chips. I cannot wait to go next year, when the trams should be running.
Harding Haven - Great Location
A very pleasant, simple but good value for money hotel. Excellent location - next to Christchurch Cathedral, also next to the 'George Frederic Handel' hotel which marks where the Messiah was first performed in 1742 by Handel. Hotel a few mins walk from Temple Bar but not in noisy distance ! Staff friendly Hotel fairly new and attached to Irish Bar. Only downsides were : no Air Conditioning in rooms- it was very hot even with windows wide open (in July) and the shower was operated by push button and no temp control - Rooms at back of hotel overlooked a shared coutyard with YHA-so early jubilant breakfasters were a little disturbing. Despite this, would definitely stay here again
Ths is indeed the badger
had booked into the George Fredric Handel Hotel, although was quite worried having read the reviews on this site a bit too late... however by some bizarre coincidence, when we arrived they told us they had problems with the locks, and had booked us into the hotel next door, the Harding Hotel, and they'd pay the difference. definitely a good move- the staff were friendly and helpful, the place was clean and modern, and aid definitely stay again.
A Great Place to Stay
The Harding Hotel is a wonderful place to stay, a great location, a nice relaxed athmosphere, friendly & very helpful staff and most of all great value for money.
I'll definitely be going back!
