This morning we got a great buffet breakfast with both hot and cold items. Then we headed to the GAA (Gaelic Athletic Association) museum for a tour of the stadium and museum. We learned about some of the different traditional Irish sports and competitions. The kids could try their hand at hurling and Irish football. They could also practice some …
Today we were up quite early for a buffet, hot breakfast in the hotel. We then had a two and a half hour bus ride to catch the ferry to Belfast. The ferry ride was about 2 hours long and we had lunch on the boat. The children got vouchers for a main item and drink from the restaurant on board. Once we arrived in Belfast, we got a new coach for a …
... Britt and i ended up ending the night and going back to the hostel. Next morning Britt and i had enough of each other so i decided to go off on my own for the day. I decided i wanted to hit up the free museums and try and get a feel for the city and try and read a map. Street signs here are so ******. Sometimes you wont even see one for a while. They are on the wall of the buildings...so not the street! Confusing at times! But this is what i ...
An early start to the day, to get our only morning option flight to Dublin. Was not very good to get to the airport, and even though paid extra checking 2 bags, were told the flight was classed regional, therefore our 'cabin size bags' were no longer cabin size, slugged an extra 60 pounds. Not happy Jan as nothing in the website or booking confirmation alluded to the fact it was a regional flight. So on bard, bags checked in, we arrived in Dublin mid morning to ...
... for one, is beautiful. It's not another dirty capital city, like Madrid or even Milan, but it was bustling and cheery, and CLEAN. Everyone was friendly, and I felt so safe. The night life was fantastic, with live Irish music and a fair amount of American tunes, as well as tons of people, young and old truly enjoying themselves. And the accents, how adorable! Everyone calls each other "love" in casual conversation, and I ...

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.
