We court two buses from derry back to dublin. We a had a go at falling asleep as we had been up all night. The following day we decided to do hop on hop off buss tour. You pay ya money and get on the bus and get taken around the sights of dublin. When you get to a stop you like you hop off and ...
After an uneventful overnight flight, we landed in Dublin. The boys didn't manage to sleep at all on the plane. I got a bit of sleep in. We picked up our car, a minivan really. I'd paid for the rental before leaving Canada and had thought that all the insurances were taken care of. I should have remembered from last time...... After making a quick call to VISA to ensure that I was in fact covered through them, we went to leave the parking lot. Hmm, I'm not ...
... few pictures.
My next stop was to walk into Stephen’s Green, which is a charming park area. It has various different garden sections, and ponds for feeding seagulls and pigeons. I wandered down Grafton Street and took a picture at the statue of Molly Malone. Molly was a fictional fishmonger who sold her trade on the streets of Dublin. I continued down Grafton and then just past the opening of Trinity College, I purchased several souvenir items ...
... Since our time was short, we did a double-decker bus tour, hop-on/hop-off. We got off early in the Temple Bar area and headed to a pub for lunch and some Wimbledon. We had heard rumors of anti-abortion protests, but had no idea until we tried to "hop-back-on" that they would shut down the entire city. We had to wait nearly 2 hours to finish the tour - and by then it was late in the afternoon and no one would ...
... to see the most photographed castel in Ireland, and one that is shown in many films (including the upcoming Irish film, Seven Brothers for Amy. After this our tour guide also took us out in the middle of nowhere to see an extremely old Abbey and take pictures. I learned that there is no such thing as a lucky 4 leaf clover or and unlucky 3 leaf clover, because in fact- a clover always has 4 leaves and a shamrock has 3. That night we went out and listened to live music ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Leeson Inn Downtown Dublin
Don,t go to this hotel. The breakfast is not good, the maid service is really terrible,i.e room wasn,t vacuumed for a week, no toilet roll (had to ask). no tea bags or milk, (had to ask) altogether no a nice hotel. The only plus point was the Romanzo italian resturant about 100 yards from the hotel - service and food was excellent.
What a waste
What a waste of a great location. Its walking distance to all the sights and sounds of Dublin, great links to the airport....but what a dump.Believe the reviews, the breakfast is the worst I've ever tried.
The irish tourist board should ban them from calling it "Irish". The rooms are tiny, blood on the curtains, bed was made up but with the same sheets ?My advice pay a bit extra of pick a more traditional B&B further out and spend the money you save on a bus pass. Won't be going back.

It was recommended by a friend and must say I was very pleased I stayed in the Inn
This hotel is alright, the breakfast is satisfactory, the rooms are pretty cramped however. I stayed in a double and there was just barely enough room to walk around the beds (two twin beds shoved together) to the bathroom.
Room was very basic and not properly cleaned. Service in Hotel was rather poor as was the breakfast (no fried-eggs!). Will try somewhere else next time.
Great hotel and well worth the money! The rooms are clean and very tastefully decorated. The location is good for access to all parts of Dublin. The only downfall is the breakfast which is pretty dire but apart from that a very good all round place to stay!
I came to Ireland on a touring holiday and stayed at the Leeson Inn. There were lots of interesting places to go. the staff were very helpful.
I meet the girl of my dreams at the Inn and we aare now engaged.
