After a quick breakfast, we boarded our coach for a short tour of the main sites of central Belfast. We then hit the road and turned south, leaving Northern Ireland behind.
Our first stop was Bru na Boinne and Knowth, which is a very interesting archaeological place. These are earth mounds which were originally constructed more than 3000 …
... for most women was interesting too. In total I would have seen no more than half a dozen women wearing heels. Of the rest, probably 40% were in nice flats (work with jeans/casual pants and a nice jacket) and the other 60% in sneakers or trainers (with casual clothes). Heels would be impossible with the cobbled streets - wonder if that was the reason.
Last night we wended our way down the narrowest of lanes for 20 minutes, and popped out into a car park. down into what looked like an old school house that is now a pub which serves local organic produce. my Mother's day dinner was a real treat indeed. Another grey moist day greeted us and the plan was to condense the packing into 1 bag as each bag costs more than the flight! Mission accomplished by 11:30 and we were off for Lisa to drop us at Bristol ...
The museum then focused on Medieval Dublin, which was controlled by Anglo-Norman nights. The exhibits had lots of fun interactive features, displays and information panels. It was a good mix of history and fun, which a lot of museums have trouble with.
I moved on to rest my weary legs at a coffee shop, and then continued my walk through the Temple Bar district before heading back for a siesta, laundry and blog updating. More adventures to come tomorrow!
... but modern chefs have used the pancake to wrap around other foods, then covers the whole thing with a sauce or gravy. I ordered the "Famous Gaelic Boxty", which was filled with beef medallions and a mushroom cream sauce. Jeremy had an irish stew. Both were very good, comfort food in the warm restaurant compared to the biting air outside.
After dinner we walked around the neighborhood a bit more, before crossing the Liffey on the ha'penny bridge, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Dublin Kilmainham
We have just returned from a two night stay at this hotel and were a little apprehensive after reading some of the other reviews. We found the hotel comfortable and clean and the staff were all very pleasant and helpful.
We saw in a previous review that the air conditioning in the hotel didn't work and the individual had to be moved to another room, BUT he/she mentioned that it was a newer hotel and maybe they were working the bugs out.
This hotel is new, clean, nicely decorated, and has a great location across the street from the Kilmainham Jail; however, I would not stay here again due to the terrible service and other problems.
A great place
we found this hotel a great place to stay, the check in was a bit slow, but the culture in ireland is much slower than what we are used to in England, the hotel has a gym and spa pool, sauna, steam room etc No Pool to swim.
The gym and spa staff are very helpful,
We will be staying here again, a very clean hotel, with a reduced price for hotel guests when parking under the hotel in the secure park.
happy to recommend this hotel to anyone, check out the hotel website for cheap breaks and special offers.
We've stayed in Hilton's all over the world, normally with good to excellent results.
Este es un hotel nuevo que está muy bien. Se encuentra en una zona tranquila, lejos del centro de la ciudad, así que pudimos dormir bien por la noche. La habitación era muy amplia. Además, cuentan con un gimnasio y una piscina especial para hacer ejercicio formidables. El servicio de recepción fue estupendo. ¡Todo el personal se volcó para atendernos! Como el hotel sólo llevaba abierto 3 semanas todavía tenían que solventar pequeños problemas técnicos - por ejemplo el aire acondicionado (no funcionaba en alguna habitación). Sin embargo, no tuvimos ningún problema. La pena fue no haber podido conseguir una habitación antes porque ya estaban reservadas al coincidir con una conferencia internacional a la que acudimos. Hicimos la excursión de día en bus/tren al Anillo de Kerry (Ring of Kerry). Se puede ir andando a la estación de tren desde el hotel, que está cerca.
Not ready for us
I was traveling through Ireland with 12 family members. The hotel was
not prepared for our arrival (at 5PM) and I got two twins instead of a double or king bed. We could have changed rooms, but check-in took forever and I didn't want any more hastle. There was no one to collect our bags, and there is no ramp for wheeled luggage, so we had
to lug them up 10 stone steps to the door. After check-in it was fine, but it is so remote that it was about 15 Euro to get into town.
I would not choose this hotel for a stay in Dublin.
Hilton hotels fall into two categories: faceless, boring, overly-pretentious, business hellholes whos only purpose is to extract the most amount of money from cheap suit-wearing salesmen; and ultra-modern, pleasant, comfortable, light and airy. Thankfully, this Hilton falls into the second category.
Outstanding hotel and pool area!
This a new and wonderful hotel. It is located in a remote area outside of the city center. So we could sleep well at night. The room was a wonderful size. Foremost, they have a outstanding workout facility and hydro resistant pool. The front desk customer service was outstanding. Each staff went out of the way to help us! The hotel had only been open for 3 wks so they are still working out the kinks in some of the operating systems - i.e. air conditioning (it shut down in a few of the rooms). However, we never had any problems. Too bad we could not get a room sooner because they were booked due to an international conference that we were attending.
We took the day bus/train tour to the Ring of Kerry. The hotel is a short walk to the train station.
We booked a free deluxe king room at the Hilton Kilmainham on Hilton's website using Hilton Honors points months in advance of our arrival on May 25th and were getting concerned as their opening date kept moving. Hotel did open on May 21st so it was not a problem for us. We arrived in Dublin from the states at 8:30 am and went straight to the hotel. It is more challenging to get to this property from the airport with luggage, unless you cab it. You can take the AirLink from the airport to Heuston Station for 6E but it would be a trek with luggage from Heuston Station unless you grab a cab from Heuston to the hotel. If you take this option be sure to exit the station on the side of the street that is one-way going AWAY from downtown or it will add 5E to the fare to get turned around. The hotel website recommends a cab from the airport and estimates the cost at 20E while our cost was 40E. Upon arrival we were fortunate enough to be able to get directly into our room upon check in which was a fabulous benefit.
