... and proceeded to disband the parliament anyway after a forced re-vote involving granting of land to ministers.
Irish independence has been a long and drawn out struggle. Another interesting chapter was the Treaty made in 1921 by Michael Collins with the English and the amount of controversy this created following this between the treaty and non-treaty republicans. Effectively the treaty made Ireland the ‘Irish Free State’ with a similar ...
... mind about flatting. I think I will stay home and save money but also pay off my debt. I really don't think it's my husband's responsibility to pay off my debt. My focus when I return is to pay off my debt with Baycorp. I think it'll take 6 months to pay off if I make fortnightly payments of $200. This makes me happy and hopeful. Thank you Lord for revealing this to me. Thank you for opening my eyes and helping me to become frugal and wise with the money you bless me ...

We started our "own free tour" with the visit of Trinity College. This
famous college found in 1592 by The Queen Elizabeth is the oldest university of
Ireland. For many years, only Protestant men could study there but now there
are no more restrictions like that. The building is very big and ...
Well my first full day was an exciting one. I went to see the city with Jamie and his friend Aaron and another friend who just came in from Italy to study English. We went to see the Guinness storehouse where they make Guinness and I got to pour my own Guinness which takes a full two minutes to do. It was an interesting concept and they gave me my own certificate as well. We had lunch in the city followed by a tarot card reading by a friend ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHilton Dublin Airport Hotel
Wonderful Staff, Great location near the airport and bus stop. Staff more than willing to offer great tips on travelling as well as storing luggage till our room was ready. Sadly the Bed is ROCK hard, wondering if it is just the box spring and the mattress was left off? Also the hot water and cold Water each want to take over control so without even touching the control in the shower you get both flowing separately, seems to have a mind of its own. These things may be just how it is in Dublin so might not be the fault of the hotel. despite the bed and hot water issue...really great hotel. DEEP long tub. quiet. wifi is 5 E tho, sad its not free in the room....

I can't offer any negative reviews about this place. It was good value and certainly suited our needs. The only real grievance - it isn't close to the airport, and the shuttle buses need to come more frequently.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Dublin Airport Hotel
A home away from home in Dublin!
We had a business conference last October and this hotel was chosen to host all conference attendees. Everyone raved about the type of service and comfort each room provides in this hotel. 15mins from the airport, this hotel employs friendly and accommodating - you'll see everyone ready to answer questions or help out in any way. With a smile! Overall - amenities are modern and rooms are very very clean! You'll be sure to have a good sound sleep after a day's work.
Tesco's across the street and open 24 hrs for a quick grocery trip. I just wish there are more restaurants walking distance from the hotel. Buffet breakfast is good.
I definitely recommend it and will personally return back to this hotel in my next visit to Ireland.
i travel a lot with work and have stayed at this hotel 4 times already this month.compared to the other hotels close by i have to say that the hilton is miles better.the rooms are large and modern,staff are very helpful especially the courtesy drivers to and from the airport.nice bar and the room service food is excellent which for me was a very pleasant surprise.dublin airport has needed a stayover hotel like this for years and at last they have got one.
After a long haul to Heathrow and Dublin connection with my wife and 6 month old daughter.We hired a car and drove to the hotel with directions from the women at the Avis rental desk,about 10 min and easy to find.
I was very disapointed. Being a Hilton, I expected better but really it's an average 3 star in my opinion. It's new, which is about the only thing going for it. The rooms are small, very hot and our window didn't open at all. The staff are clueless - any questions I asked were greeted with blank stares. We ate once in the bar and the food was just average and ridiculously over priced. Not recommeded.
I couldn't have been happier with my stay at the Dublin Airport Hilton! The rooms were large, beautiful, and comfortable. The cadillac of hairdryers is provided -- don't bother packing yours! We were there for a relaxing weekend away but were concerned about the location being too far from the city. However, there is a bus stop just across the street from the hotel that brings you into the city center for 1.50 per person and you're downtown in 15 minutes. The airport shuttle was also great. The shuttle comes every hour and a phone call to the concierge prior to arrival ensures the driver is looking for you at the airport (concierge also gives detailed directions to find the shutte). On check-in, the receptionist books your return shuttle so all is taken care of. One thing to consider is breakfast -- if you think you want the hot buffet, you're much better off booking your room with breakfast included as the breakfast is 19 euros per person when purchased separately. Bottom line: Gorgeous hotel, fine location (many hotels in the city were located in very shady neighborhoods), and the price was unbeatable!!!
Good hotel but
The Hilton Dublin Airport is certainly a good hotel. It is only recently opened and therefore is modern and clean. The bed was very comfortable and the room pretty large. There is a nice open resturant and bar. Breakfast is good with Irish fry ups or a continental style breakfast available. There are a couple of things about it that annoyed me though. First you have to pay extra for parking in the underground car park. Ok its only 5 euros per night but when you are paying for a room I dont think it is too much for parking to be provided free, especially as the hotel is not really near anything else so a car is particularly useful when satying here. Also the hotel isnt particularly near the airport. It would be closer to the city centre than the airport.
I stayed at the Dublin Airport Hilton following a business trip, i had an early flight out the next morning. The hotel is brand new and this is clear to see, the beds have hardly been slept in and the bathrooms hardly used. It's extremely clean. The decor is plain, stylish, minimal and low key. I didn't arrive until late so didn't order room service or use any facilities so i can't comment on that. However when my plane landed at 09:00 a.m. they let me check in straight away no questions asked. OK so they weren't busy but still, they were very accommdating. Front desk staff are helpful and friendly - as is the Irish way!
I previously posted a review for a stay that i had taken just 5 days after the hotel opened and i wanted to post another topic to confirm that my few worries about the hotels service were definately taken care of this time. The hotel have gotten over all teething problems and i must say it is a great hotel by any standards. I would have no hesitation staying here, even if i didnt need to be close to the airport. Its about 15 mins by car to the centre of town (via malahide rd). As a HHonors Gold i was automatically upgraded to a Deluxe room.
New hotel with Hilton standards and good value. Traveled with two children 9 and 16 and used one family room (including excellent breakfast) and ended up very similiar in price to a local B & B. Caddy-corner is a new small mall with some fast food (children) and Tesco supermarket. Underground parking is 5 Euro and although it is called Hilton "Airport" it is not that close but about 15 minute drive and half the distance to downtown Dublin. Good value, pleasant staff and am happy to recommend.
Loved the Hilton Dublin airport
We used this hotel as our base for a Dublin break & it was excellent. We had 2 children with us 6 & 3 and the hotel's family rooms were excellent. King size bed for us & generous singles for the kids. Our rate included breakfast & dinner - both of which were top rate & great choice. Staff very friendly, polite & knowledgable. Bed was the most comfortable i've every slept in!! Shuttle to & from airport. We drove into Dublin (apx 20 mins) for signtseeing.
