Stop 2: Milan- not much of a stop because we plan on just passing through to get on a train to...
Stop 3: Cinque Terre- oooooooh I'm excited about this part! Planning on doing an 8 mile hike through the 5 towns and we WILL get in the water. No excuses, play like a champion.
Stop 4: Florence- ever since I took a life changing art history class in high school, I have always died to come to this place and look at the art. I don't ...

So just enough time to introduce Dee to her new favourite crisps - Walkers Max Steak flavoured crinkle cut ones - and board another plane further up the airport.
This one didn't have a dent, so we made our way to Heathrow only 50 minutes late. Ok for us but I felt so bad for some of the people that obviously missed their connecting ...

I ate my burger, and tried as hard as I could to decipher what the group of Irish guys were saying in the booths nearby. They speak so quickly, and tend to be very lazy in their pronunciation of their words. I find it very difficult to tell what they are ...

Thursday night it was an extremely drunk bloke staggering around the room trying to find a toilet. Eventually he peed in a corner before someone shoved him out the door and pointed him in the direction of the toilets.
It has to said that the hostel is a **** hole. Half the ...

We were able to get a great room (quite large) for only 40 euros through Expedia. The food from the restaurant was very good as well.

Historical Traveler Reviews Maldron Hotel Parnell Square Dublin
Very nice stay
I liked everything about this hotel. The receptionist was very helpful and welcoming, the room was big (for Dublin standards). It was quiet (especially when closing the thick curtains) and not far from the lively (and extremely more louder) center. Everything was very clean, the bright bathroom seemed to be almost the same size of room. I will definitely chose this hotel again next time I visit Dublin.
p.s. A small minus - though the room was equipped with ironing station and tea-making facilities, there was no hair dryer, and you have to buy the plug adapter from the hotel for 6 EUR.
We have just returned from an extended weekend at the Comfort Inn Granby Row. Sure the hotel was almost brand new, but a big let down due to several annoyances! We had notified the hotel in advance that we would arrive very late, around midnight. When we arrived at the hotel the only room they could offer us was a small room with a queen size bed and smokers room. We had booked the hotel almost 2 months in advance and booked non-smoking with Kingsize bed. The room, 121, had a terrible odour of smoke and lacked towels, 1 pillow + guest information book. When confronting the front desk they only replied that this was one of their biggest and best rooms, and that they were fully booked. We didn't continue arguing as the staff at the front desk spoke very poorly english. I was up several times during the night because of my asthma and felt quite ill.
We have just returned from a two night stay and couldn't fault it.
The current rates are excellent value for money, in what seemed like a expensive city.
As soon as you walked in you could tell it has only just opened as everything had a new feel about it.
We arrived before 9am hoping to leave our bags for the day before we could check in, but staff straight away offered us the chance to go to our room upon arrival.
The room was fantastic, the bed massive and the decor was fresh and modern.
The cleaning was also very thorough.
Overall we found staff to be very helpful and polite and we had a great time and would recommend it to anyone.
I have just returned from a 2 night trip to Dublin with a party of 4. We had originally booked to stay at the Jurys Inn on Parnell Street, but changed our booking at the last minute after seeing the reviews of the Comfort Inn Granby Row. We were very glad we did as this hotel seems to be a notch above the standard of Jurys.
Comfort Inn Fab hotel
We stayed at the Comfort Inn for my birthday, it was booked as a suprise by my husband. I can't fault it at all. The decor was modern, clean and newly refurbished. We stayed in room 253 and it was lovely. It was a little walk from O'Connell Street, not far from local pubs also. Really close to the shops. Go to Flannigans for a lovely meal, the food was excellent and the Guiness even better! I would definately stay here again. The 747/748 bus from the airport takes you to O'Connel Street which is 5/10 mins walk from the hotel. A really great hotel !!
Fine budget option for Dublin, Love the Free WI-Fi!
This hotel proved to be a good choice for us in Dublin. Be sure to ask for the senior rate if you are eligible, as it will give you a great rate for Dublin.
I thought our hotel was fine in all regards. Good front desk service, clean room, good location. I'd stay there again.
I was especially grateful for the free Wi-Fi that was available.
Good local pubs
when we booked we didnt realise this hotel was brand new. it was a lovely surprise when we arrived the location was ideal for us as the last time we came to dublin we stayed a little way out at the ashling (however the hotel was excellent just a little too far for us) the room was lovely and the bed so clean and comfortable the bathroom gleaming. i thought the breakfast was good my husband not so sure we had a deal with our room but dont think it was worth the extra if we had to pay for it. everyone who spoke to us were friendly if not irish but the local pubs were brilliant keep temple bar and go to the locals much better. all in all we enjoyed our stay and would definetly stay there again
Fab modern comfy hotel!!
Hotel was lovely & modern, the room was spacious & the king size bed was very comfy! The bathroom was nice & clean too & the shower was good!
The room was tidy & clean & couldn't fault anything in the room!
The breakfast was really good. Cooked breakfast, plenty of it, toast, cereal etc, enough to keep us going til late afternoon!!
The staff were ok, not the friendliest & they found it difficult to understand us! But overall would definately stay there again & would recommend the hotel for anyone wanting to see the sights of Dublin as it was really easy to walk to Temple Bar & all the main areas from the hotel & the 747 airport bus stopped in the same street as the hotel so handy for getting to or from the airport.
A bit of a mixed experience - basically a good hotel, but let down by a succession of small annoyances.
Loved this Hotel!
Great Bargain for Dublin!
Modern clean rooms with walking space - "Amercian size rooms" - which is hard to find anywhere in Europe. We had brand new towels everyday - the rooms were very nice with comfortable beds.
The hotel bar attracts some locals because of the great prices on Beer!
Temple Bar and shopping are a simple straight shot walk that talks about 10 minutes.
Definitely would stay here again. Hopefully it doesn't get too popular and the prices go up :)
