Eventually, we continued onward to Dublin, but not before Bridget was forced to drive for the first time on our journey. She performed admirably and had no issues driving on the "wrong side" of the narrow roads with a rather large SUV. However, she got cold feet about going into a roundabout and ...
... dinner. When it was time to move on to the next place, we realized that finding a seat at a bar near this area was far fetched so we headed out a ways to find a quieter place. We found our last bar, had another drink and the place started getting packed. We decided to had back to the hotel at this point to hang out for a while before bed. We didn't want to party too hard before the big day. We took a cab back, 18 euro for about 4 miles, and went to the ...
... best seat in the house. Feeling very pleased to have officially started and finished my first full pint we headed off on foot back into the center of town. Back nearby Temple Bar we stopped into Porterhouse Bar which was screening the final 20 minutes of the Kiwi's/England league semi final. It turned out to be the best 20 minutes of league ever, as we watched NZ cinch a last minute try to take them to the final. No one apart from us in the bar seemed to have any idea of ...
... around the shops for a few hours and then met the boys for a few bevies.
We then went to a French restaurant (yes French in Ireland!), Chez Max, for dinner. When we arrived back at our hotel, there just happened to be a pub next door which was playing some live Irish music, so we found a table and set-up in there. The drinks were good, the music was great and the company was excellent!

... back home. So many people there from so many different countries. KC and I got there at 730 in the morning on a Tuesday and we were number 160 and 161 on the list. It took 5 hours for us to be seen and I was even skeptical because I didn't think I had all the paper work. Sure enough I didn't and KC did! So I basically waited for nothing. I finally got my proper paperwork so this Friday I will go a get it. Not exactly looking forward to it... Friday I also have my ...

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.
