It has taken a while to write this blog and part of it is down to not wanting to put the final blog in writing and acknowledging our travels are over. But they are so here we go. Our final country was Ireland. Perhaps not the most exotic, particularly compared to some of the other countries visited but as we discovered its not all about the exotic. I have been to Ireland numerous times whilst Tracey had a solitary visit - a weekend in Dublin - to her name. For me this was a mix of a ...

... great Irish accent! We got to the airport in time for our flight home to Nottingham and were even back for brunch at uni Sunday morning. This trip was by far one of the best trips I've had and it's impossible to capture just how much of an incredible experience it was with everything going right and all of us in such great moods the entire time. It's a shame we only got to spend one day in Dublin but I definitely couldn't have asked for a better day to be had :) ...

Weekend in Dublin

... Comedy night. I have been told it is really a hit-and-miss kind of place, but we got lucky with the acts that night.

On my second day, I visited most of the landmark attractions around Dublin. These attractions were mostly up and down the River Liffey (Halfpenny Bridge and Market, Four Courts, Millennium Bridge and out to Phoenix Park where we could see the statue of the phoenix, the American Ambassador's Residence, The ...

... Brewery was very cool for P and Z. It several exhibits that were very historical and of course they wanted to read every word. M and C sat in the coffee shop and had tea and scones while the boys walked around the exhibits. They had an exhibit of television advertising from the 30's or 40's through 2012. It was set up so you had to stand on specific foot prints in order to hear the commercials on the televisions they had out. If you didn't you ...

Day in Dublin

... Mel and Kyle were going too. We walked together through the city. The museum was very interesting - I like knowing how and why a city was formed, etc.

1:00 Afterwards, Dean and I had Maccas for lunch (quick and easy. And yummy) as we wanted to head an hour out of the city by train to see Malehide Castle - the longest inhabited castle in Ireland (800 years by one family!)

It was fantastic! The castle was beautiful, but our tour guide gave a great run down ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Westbury Hotel Dublin

    Nice touches at the Wesbury

    from

    I have stayed at the Wesbury several times over the past 2 years. The location is second to none in Dublin. It is just off Grafton street. Has a free underground parking garage and if rooms are available will allow you to check in early. My husband and I have arrived at 9 AM and been allowed into our room. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. The Molton Brown soaps and lotions are luxurious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The rates do vary. I would check the Jury's website often. The Full Irish Breakfast is quite expensive, but the continental breakfast in the lobby is nice. The lounge is a fantastic place to relax with friends and family. Get there early in order to get a table. It is especially lovely when the pianist is playing.

    Very friendly staff

    from

    I stayed at the Westbury last May, 2004. I have since stayed at many other Dublin hotels (Clarence, Westin, Fitzwilliam) and have realized that the friendly service found at the Westbury is difficult to match. I loved the staff and spending time in the hotel lobby area having tea while looking out on Grafton Street. The atmosphere was great and the location cannot be beaten if you are looking for a city center hotel. The room was lovely, if a little traditional in decor. I would absolutely stay here again and appreciate this hotel even more now that I can compare it to others.

    Overpriced and Overrated

    from

    I suppose I am to blame for booking accommodation in the Westbury, one of the most luxurious five star Dublin hotels, and a member of Leading Hotels of the World to quote from their own website.

    I was aware the the price of €185 and indeed the it would be subject to a service charge of 12.5% however I expected a level of service that matched the price.

    To find chewing gum stuck below the bathroom sink and a used facecloth under the towels does not match the image. The fight outside my bedroom door that woke me at 4.30 am was not the hotel's fault but could have been handled better. The "light breakfast" that was included in the price consisted of self-service tea/coffee and a croisant. Not so much as a glass of orange juice! What could justify the service charge of 12.5%? Irish hotels are generally expensive but this one took the biscuit. Never again!

    Great location

    from

    Great location! Treated very well at the Westbury. Concierge was great, housekeeping turned down the bed at night. A little pricey, but very nice.

    Top Hotel In Dublin!

    from

    You can't get a better hotel in Dublin than the Westbury. The location is second to none, while the amenities are top notch. The rooms are well appointed and the full Irish Breakfast gets you off to a good start. 5 ***** all the way, you won't find a better choice for the price.

    Great Location

    from

    You cannot get a better spot that the Westbury for location - right in the middle of Dublin's high street shopping. Great hotel also if you have a car - there is a free underground carpark attached. The first floor lobby is a great meeting place for afternoon tea or a drink.Can be excellent value too - check the Jurys website.

    Loved the Westbury

    from

    My, 87 year old aunt and I enjoyed every minute of our stay. We enjoyed the scrumptious goumet meals served very elegantly at The Sandbank Bistro. However, we especially liked Afternoon Tea and cocktails in The Terrace Lounge listening to favorite tunes played by a delightful piano player. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The service was impeccable. The location simply added to the enjoyment of our vacation.

    Really loved the Westbury!

    from

    Can't beat the location and comfort of this wonderful hotel. We enjoyed a beautiful room here. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We really wanted to stay here for the location but it's not cheap--surprisingly, we got an excellent rate through the hotels website--check often because the rates fluctuate--I was about to give up when the 300 pound per day rate dropped to 140--this included breakfast, taxes and fees!

    We would stay again!

    from

    There were 10 of us staying at the Westbury in Dublin and every one loved it. We all agreed that if we were to return we would stay there again. The location is excellent and the service was wonderful. All of our rooms were spacious and the beds very comfortable. The baths had plenty of room, the elevators were prompt and fast, and the continental breakfast in the lounge was lovely. The buffet in the restaurant was also excellent. It was a wonderful experience.

    Centre of Excellence

    from

    This is an excellent hotel for shopping in Dublin. Only minutes from the main thorough fare. Service is exemplary. Having had to wait two minutes for a drink in the bar, I was offered it for free. Rooms are clean, airy and have great beds. Public reception areas plush but lacking in character.
