Travel Blogs from Dublin
Just wrapping up the travel blog now that we're home. Drove out of Killarney on Saturday and immediately discovered a new world of wide Irish roads, where the sight of a bus coming the other way did not drive up the heart rate. The warm and sunny weather seemed to have sent most everybody in the country towards the coasts as the roads were very …
Another morning of Irish breakfast, this time more authentic. That pudding was not what I thought it would be!
Parade started at noon so we headed out around 10:30am to find a good spot to watch it. Got a pretty good spot, even though we had to wait for over two hours for the parade to get to us (around 12:45) and our feet were killing us by …
All Evan has been able to talk about since getting to Ireland has been Irish breakfast (which he had, ironically, in Spain a few years ago.) We ended up finding a reasonably affordable place and sitting down to a relatively-Irish-breakfasty kind of place (it had a few shortcomings; ie: no puddings). We saw an old Irishman showdown at the next …
Planned on getting an early start on the road today and I was especially excited to take a shower because I had finally bought a razor to replace the one I left at home. Woke up at 8am, only to discover no hot water! I don't know who was more devastated, me or my armpits. Turns out, the hot water heater had busted, so while we waited for the …
... want to be. After our bags were packed, we head towards the mall and stop at a cafe for breakfast with Nick and Blue. Last breakfast with the remaining members of the Camino group. After breakfast, we head to the mall as Nick and Blue wanted to clothes shop again. We happily tagged along. We easily passed the time assisting Blue and Nick with their shopping needs. The time has come to head back to the albergue one last time. We arrive a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beresford Hotel Dublin
I spent a long weekend at the hotel last spring and had very mixed feelings. The hotel was clean, it was in a great location, the rooms were a decent size, and food wasn't bad. However, I didn't sleep the entire time we were there. We had a room over the kitchen and a machine kept going on all night with a very loud banging noise that shook our room. Then, in the morning- bright and early- the cooks turned on music very loud. Plus, we had a problem with the ceilings. They were just so thin and squeeky that we heard every step the people above us took. This was aggrivating, but okay when it was just two adults up there, but when a group of young, active children moved in the next night with their parents it was unbearable. We did ask the staff about the noise bellow us (it took two nights before we discovered it was the kitchen), but they didn't do anything to help us, if anything we seemed like a nuisance to them. I'd recommend this hotel, but only if you get a room on the top floor, away from the busy road, and on the opposite side of the kitchen.
My wife and I stayed for a few days in early april and had a great time.This hotel is very well placed for walking to all the tourist areas and ideal if you use the air link bus from and to the airport(the stops are 10yards from the hotel).This hotel is excellent in all areas from the food through to the staff service and I would not hesitate staying here the next time we visit.
If there is any one out ther who likes a pint (or two) then nearby in middle abbey street within the Abbey Hotel (mojos bar) all pints are 3euros which is excellent for Dublin bar prices.
cannot wait to return to this hotel
I stayed at the Beresford for a few nights last summer, the house and its interior are beautiful- of a much higher quality than I would expect for the price I paid. I found the location to be excellent, around the corner from the bus station and an easy walk to Temple Bar and Grafton Street. However our stay was slightly marred by the building work that was going on nearby at the time.
I love this hotel and have returned 4 times this year on business and once for a city break. For a city centre location you cannot beat it. The road works are completely finished outside the hotel as this was a hassle earlier in the year. There is a new manager there - Justin I think - he really seems to know his business. They have just refurbished the entire ground floor area of the hotel and I must say it is probably this nicest lobby I have ever seen - big open fires, beautiful lighting - a great place to relax after a hard days work. They opened their new Cafe bar not so long ago which compliments their fantastic authentic italian restaurant. This is a surprisingly quiet hotel with a great shower - a bit too strong in fact! Really friendly and efficient staff who make you feel welcome important and most of all for a single lady traveller - safe!!!
Great value food and accommodation
We had a really lovely stay at Hotel Isaacs - beautiful rooms right in the city centre. The bar was relaxing and the Italian restaurant was lovely -unusual to get such nice and good value food in a hotel. Compared to some other Dublin city centre hotels we stayed at in the past, this was by far the nicest. They are right in the centre of the city so we walked everywhere which saved a few euros on taxis and public transport.
Convenient location, very tired rooms
If only the sleeping rooms were like the charming Breakfast Room/restaurant, but sadly, they were tired 20 years ago. Not old fashioned charm, just old. We felt the price of E132 was a lot for the double accomodations provided.
Friendly staff, and convenient location near the central bus station, 10 minute walk to Temple Bar and Trinity College. Major construction going on next to the hotel, but that pretty well describes a lot of Dublin in June 2004.
Directly behind Customs House, but within easy walking distance of the Liffey and central Dublin, this refurbished guest house can only be described as spectacular. Our room was almost regal in its grandeur, the staff were extremely friendly and the breakfast was excellent.
The only downside, I foresee, is the proximity of the newly-laid tramlines. The system had not yet opened when we stayed, but it's likely that the noise could pervade the front rooms.
I'm altogether impressed, however, and it takes a lot to satisfy me.
The Hotel Isaacs is situated next to the bus station in Dublin so eliminates the needs for a taxi from the airport. The public lounges have great character, huge open fires in impressive fire surrounds and knowledgeable, friendly staff to enhance the visit. The bedrooms are of an adequate size, clean and comfortable. The TV is small and has limited reception, but I wasn't in the room long enough to watch any TV. The ensuite bathroom is a good size and clean, but becoming in need of refurbishment. The hotel coffee bar is a great place to relax, although there are so many to try out in Dublin I didn't have much call for the hotel one. Breakfast was excellent value and of good quality. Again the staff were attentive and friendly, readily bringing hot milk on request. The location of the hotel was ideal for any visit in the city. Everywhere was in walking distance, although the open top bus tour provided an ideal overview of the city.
Value for money
I've been there in june 2003. It is easily to be reached from the airport by bus, because it is opposite of the busstation. It is not noisy though!The staff is friendly and helpfull.If you have a room ath the back it is very quiet, though you are in the heart of the city.Rooms are clean and friendly decorated. There is no noise from the hostel which is at the back of the hotel.It's a ten minute walk to temple bar. The breakfast was okay, young staff, whith no interest in the guests.I would go there again, value for money
