Andre: We all made it safe and sound, after a long trip across the Atlantic. Pictures will be up soon. Still can't get over the accents, and the city is amazing; however it is coming down in buckets right now. Really looking forward to exploring more. Diane: for free breakfast at the hotel we got cereal, yogurt, oj, coffee, eggs, bacon(ham, really …
Getting serious now, visa got and only six weeks left.
Need to hitch a lift I suppose!. More internet searches and we establish that we more or less have 4 options.
Turkish Airlines - cheapish €500 if you organise yourself right. Flights over Istanbul, but be careful they do not highlight some flights need to change airport. Not easy or fast and you could miss your flights.

the heart of Dublin, where most tourists go. I know, I'm a "traveler"
and not a "tourist," but I wanted to see the most I could see in a
relatively short period. It was worth it as I saw the Church of St. Anne, a few
other beautiful sights, and stopped in a very Irish-looking restaurant and had
Irish stew for the first time. It was strikingly similar to the beef stew Mom
cooks, but with lamb instead of beef. Otherwise, ...
... scene is located in the Temple Bar area. After a bit of a lost detour we made our way along the river Leffe that splits the city, and into the actual Temple Bar. I was really looking forward to trying my first Irish Guinness! It is meant to taste much better in Ireland than anywhere else, a combination of different brewing conditions and the fact that it doesn’t travel well are attributed to this. I can attest that It was much better in Ireland, although the first one was still ...
... Then we crossed over to the north side of the River Liffey, and we travelled past the National Museum of Ireland, which since it was a Monday, was closed to the public. I had heard that this is an amazing place to visit. Unfortunately, I’ll have to return someday to Dublin to get a look at it.
Next we headed out northwest through Phoenix Park and past both the President’s House and that of the American Ambassador’s house. In ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Jackson Court Hotel Dublin
Disgusting, dirty and noisy. The Jackson Court Hotel ruined our trip to Ireland! The bathroom was so filthy, lots of mold, hair and god knows what in the toilet!! The shower stall was so small that we had to squish through the dirty, moldy doors to take a shower. The bedding was much the same, lots of stains, no mattress cover. As the place was so filthy we were afraid to eat the "full Irish breakfast". The nightclub in the basement starts around 11:00pm, goes until 4:00am. The music is so loud that it felt like the band was in our room, (we were on the 3rd floor). After the music stops the yelling, throwing up, fighting and peeing goes on in the alleyway right under our room. We have filed a official complaint with the Irish Tourism Board! This place is definately not for average, clean people! It would be okay if you want to join the all night partying and get drunk so that you would not care about the filth! Never again!
The room itself was pretty nice. Very small, but clean. The lobby and the bar on the main floor had a very interesting smell (think cat urine, over-cooked eggs and a splash of stale beer). The front desk staff was very helpful and nice. The real problem with the hotel - the noise from the nightclub at night. There is a bar on the main floor and a danceclub in the basement. The bar was OK, we had a few pints there during our stay. The nightclub was a bit obnoxious. The bass thumping at 4 am and then the recycling of glass bottles woke us up every night, and we were on the 3rd floor. The main attraction of this hotel is definitely the bar/club so if you are looking for a quite place to stay and rest after a long day of sightseeing - this is not the place. We did not have a horrible experience but we would not stay again.
Had a great time
10/04/04-12/04/04 - Just went for short break. Thought accommodation was great. Nightclub in Hotel is highly reccommended, as you don't have far to travel after a few guinness. Will be staying here again, next time in Dublin. Enjoy.
Looking for cheap accomodation in dublin,do not look at the Jackson Court!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rooms small and unclean Bathroom was not clean other people's hair in plug and over flow. Reception in poor state of repair and very messy general state of Hotel POOR.

PS if you do go take some plastic gloves and domestos and give them a hand
A Charming Hotel! A+++
We had a great stay at Jackson Court. After reading the other reviews we were nervous about our stay. It was great, clean, large bathrooms & rooms, friendly staff, best location in the city, great bar/nightclub (which did not keep us up all night), the only noise to be heard was sorting of bottles in the back alley in the morning. Otherwise great!!
Would surely stay here again!! A+++ Connor in the carvery is so charming!!
Wish I would have read these reviews before I went to Dublin. The Dublin tourist information center booked me a room here as they said it was a good deal (half price). The only way to get sleep here was to drink alot. I was on the third floor and was kept awake from the club in the basement and the drunks outside. I wouldn't stay here unless I wanted to party all night in the Club.
What a terrible place! We were here on the 14th of September and left as soon as possible the next day. The room was tiny and was on the "quiet side" of the hotel, so we were told. There is no quiet place here - the noise from the restaurant, bar, club and street went on from 7 pm well on to 4 am and we did not sleep at all. The stairwell smelled like a toilet and the floors were sticky. Our brief visit was much too long.
The place was clean, food adequate, and a nice bar but on the weekend the place was sheer hell:
We went with two other couples. All three rooms were pokey, small and claustraphobic. The shower was grubby and hard to get into if you were bigger than a size 10! The nightclub in the basement did not affect us - couldn't hear the music BUT we were woken every night between 3 and 4 when the revellers left. The top floor rooms of the hotel were obviously staff rooms in an early period, and should not be used for guests - far too small with very low ceilings
There is a nightclub in the basement from which people spill into a little alley way to fight and puke. My room overlooked this alley.
Closing the window kept most of the noise out and the stifling midsummer heat in. If your room is on the 1st floor there's no defence from the throb of music from below. The room I had - 207 - was tiny and the TV didn't work properly. Otherwise the hotel is OK.
