Travel Blogs from Dublin
Tuesday morning, we decided to sleep in a little bit and got up at 9. It was so good to catch up on some much needed sleep. We
went to breakfast across the street and after we made our way to the
city hall where our walking tour started from. It was really nice
because it was free and at the end we could tip how much we felt we
We started our day off at 4am, checked out and left the hotel at 4:30. It was a 15 minute walk to the bus station from the hotel and we waited for about 15 minutes for the correct bus. We had to change buses once, but we made
it to the train station at 6am where we were to take the "replacement bus" instead of the train …
The day would be spent walking throughout Dublin, a city that is home to 1/3 of the population of the country. Interestingly enough, half of this population is under the age of twenty-five. Maybe that is why there are over 700 pubs here. To start the day our right, we grabbed a quick breakfast consisting of a blueberry muffin and a delicious latte …
The morning began with stormy skies and an ominous outlook for the rest of the day. We continued nonetheless with our original plans. Breakfast was served in the classy dining area in the hotel outside of Doolin. Our pancakes were actually quite strange, so I ate a scone, fruit, yogurt, and cereal instead. We said goodbye to the picturesque west …
Our full day in Dublin. We had a Hop On/Hop Off tour that took the full day. So far I haven't gotten all my technology working together at the same time to weave pictures into the text. I've still got 4 weeks to work on it, though. The day had a couple of real highlights. Touring Christ Church, which was built in 1592 by Queen Elizabeth. It was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Lynam's Hotel Dublin
i stayed in the hotel on the 21st of december and i tought the place was excellent. the room was warm clean tiday although i did have some concerns as to what the pipe in no.36 was sticking out of the ground for. i had a great nights sleep and i found the people at the front dest very welcoming
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while I was on a tour of Ireland.
The rooms were a little small..but you can't always have huge rooms, right? I didn't notice any noise really, and in the middle of the city you can expect noise. The location of this hotel is perfect, its on the busiest street in Dublin, right in the middle of everything. You're walking distance from the castles and cathedrals, plus Grafton street.
I would definitely stay there again.
Overcharged and ripped off
Me and my friends were charged 133 Euros extra for having a broken extra bed with no pillow in the double room for three nights. And even if we could prove that according their own rules, an extra rollaway-bed in the room is NO CHARGE, they refused to refund the money. As a travel agent, I now know where not to send my clients.
Stayed at Lynams on the 14th Nov 2003 for two nights the hotel was safe comfortable and friendly. The staff were very helpful and i would definitely stay there again
I feel I had to write this review of the Hotel. We have just come back from a weekend in Dublin staying at your hotel,and after reading the reviews before we went ,we were a little apprehensive of what the hotel would be like. I am happy to say that we had a wonderfull weekend,and have no complaints about the hotel whatsoever,the rooms were lovely,the breakfast we had was cooked nicely,the staff were friendly and very helpfull,and I would especially like to thank your night porter Jamie for all the help and friendliness he showed to us,nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to stay in your hotel again. from a happy welsh lady.
The room we stayed in was very hot and we were cramped for space. The worst part of it all was that we had an early flight to catch the next morning and so requested a wake up call, which never came. Thankfully, we woke on our own but when trying to rush around and get ready to leave, discovered that there was no hot water in the shower. Not a pleasant experience.
For a hotel based in the city centre, you can expect noise to a certain degree. But I have never paid so much money to stay somewhere, and I couldn't sleep. Value for money ! I think not. The noise from the fans on one side and the music on the other. The room was very small and extremely warm. I would expect heat like that on a sun holiday. I was very disappointed with my stay, and you can be re-assured that I will be paying over the nose for a "decent" hotel on my next visit. Bitterly disappointed.
We were kept awake all night with music coming from next door all night Spar shop.
Otherwise hotel and breakfast were average.
No sleep ...
stayed in this hotel middle of august 2003 for 3 nights. i guess the purpose of a hotel is to offer a bed and a good nights sleep in the first place - well that's something we didn't get... we had a twin room at the back, it was very hot, and during the night, we woke up because of the noise of rats and other animals looking for food of next door mc donalds.... the girls at the reception desk confirmed they had had complaints but couldn't do anything about it... the irish breakfast was dripping in fat, toasts were black... now the decoration is nice; the room big enough, the shower very small, and the location excellent...
