... that we will never know of, feed my curiosity like nothing else. Leaving the castles behind, we arrived at the Cliffs of Moher. From where the bus had dropped me off upon arriving at the scene, I couldn't really tell that I was on enormous cliffs until I had climbed them. The view was absolutely breathtaking. Looking out for miles to see nothing but sea and then down to watch the birds flying back and forth through clefts in the rocks and over the lapping ...
... week's adventures... so we decided to take a quick nap before hunting down a local restaurant for dinner. We wandered around the city streets (including the famous Grafton St.) looking for a non-irish restaurant, since we were starting to get tired of the repetitive heavy Irish dishes. We had made it about two blocks before a familiar sight caught our attention: another Murphy's Ice Cream shop!! Of course, we ...
... started to swell we stopped off at Slattery's Pub for a pint pre-match. There seemed to be an endless stream of All Black supporters walking past. At the stadium we were blown away by how impressive it was in real life. We were even more so when we got high up into our seats. Very few people had arrived by this point, so we passed the time by making small chat with a few local Irish guys in our row. The guys beside me even asked how much we were going to beat them by. ...
... my husband is fuming right now thinking "I should not have let her go there alone", but I guess it can happen anywhere...Ok, maybe not.
Anyway, for those thinking it was an intentional flash to me, it wasn't. He didn't know I was even looking, for the second floor window. I don't think he exactly knew anything was going on at all. Except, he was "happy".
All this to say, I'm staying in tonight...Sarah get here quick cos I'm bored out of my head!
... We went to the Kings Head pub (that was recommended to Erin from a work colleague) for dinner. There was a soccer game on with Manchester United playing Swansea so the pub was packed but amazingly it had three levels to the pub even though from the street front it looks like a tiny little old pub. The dinner was delicious. Irish people sure know how to cook. After dinner when walking back to the car we couldn't believe how many 'stag night' groups we were walking ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Green Isle Hotel Dublin
We stayed in this hotel for St Patrick's weekend; we were placed in the old bedrooms that where not very nice, very old fashioned and old itchy blankets not even a nice comfortable quilt or duvet on them.
They have done a great job on the refurb. The staff here are friendly and helpful, the night barman is a star. The rooms are lovely and clean and even though it is right next a really busy road I didn't hear a thing. You should know that this hotel is not in the centre of Dublin but the Luis (tram) stops near and takes you straight there.
this hotel is not located near dublins city centre contrary to what they would have you believe! the reception staff are extremly patronising and the rooms in the old building are dusty and delapated an embarassment to the hotel industry lets hope the renovations improve on this!
Fantastic new addition to an old favourite
I have just stayed in the Green Isle Hotel.
It has new rooms and a huge car park and they have a leisure area that hadn't opened but on checking is due to open in October.
I was there for a meeting and stayed overnight.
We were given one of their new boardrooms - great views over Dublin city.
The rooms were extremely well designed with several nice touches.
The Hotel is situated out of the City which to be honest is a god send as the traffic in Dublin has now got so bad that it takes forever to travel small distances.
Great staff, great service and a pleasant atmosphere.
It is an ideal choice for anyone wanting to stay near the City and yet in a relaxing and comfortable location.
Good place to stay
My family stayed at this hotel for the two first nights of our Irish holiday. We found the staff very helpfull, our dinner the first night of our stay could not be faulted. The restaurant staff were very nice and our breakfasts excellent. After reading some of the reviews on this website, we were a little apprehensive as to what we would find at this hotel, but found this an enjoyable place to stay. Ok, there`s building work going on at the moment, it did`nt bother us. As a bonus, this hotel had free WIFI internett access in lobby area. Over all I would have no hessitation to recommend this hotel to anyone.
We stayed just one night here, on arriving at Dublin airport. Found the hotel fairly easily, and checked in OK. On-going building work had reduced car parking area (temporarily I assume) but we still found a space, and we weren't disturbed by any building noise (but it was a weekend).
This was our first visit to Ireland and when booking accomodation you have to rely on brochure or web site information when selecting where to stay.
Paid in Full, No Reseravtion
Recently We Paid in full for 1 week stay in this Hotel Through Expdia.com but upon arrival on airport but Immigration Services wanted to Confirm the Hotel Reservation, Hotel Denied any reservation and Caused my Uncle to be deported back...Very Very BAD SERVICE!!!!!
Wonderful Friendly Service
We stayed at the Jury's, Green Isle, and were treated wonderfully! We did not have reservations, but were treated with great courtesy by the clerks. Room service was prompt and friendly. All in all, it was a great night's sleep, delicious breakfast, and we look forward to our next visit! We have told our friends to try to include this hotel on their itineraries.
Overpriced, overrated and bad
Terrible. Bad food, inattentive restaraunt service, meal was not what was ordered without even an apology, AND a party of eight that sat down 15 minutes later than us (a couple) was served approximately 10 minutes before us. Rooms were OK, bar tiny, smoky and uncomfortable. It might be OK if the price was 50% of what is charged. You would save a considerable amount of money by staying in a guesthouse and eating pub grub locally. Jurys seem to spent money on marketing and advertising to the detriment of the service that they are actually meant to be providing.
