One Short Day in the Emerald City

... br> People on the streets are always apologizing when I accidentally step on their toes. The secretary- or executor-- of the Literature Department at Trinity, Brenda Brooks, tells me that I remind her of her niece, especially when I laugh. She teases me with such expediency, efficacy and grace, that when I enter her office, I really do feel like family. ( "Come in to torture me again there now aren't you?" she will say.)

Twenty mins later we were checked and went searching for food. Apparently the hot food doesn't start at four in the morning so scones were scoffed instead. A walk to get mrmc a book and we were ready to ...

... lost some of the chips.

Nearly down to only a couple of hundred I then got lots of chips back by bluffing my way around and winning the pot with a pair of 4s against nothing. But a sit goes in the end all the money was gone again. Anyway, the reason to be here tonight was not the game but the people and the beer.

We enjoyed the evening.Well done Derek!

Leaving the pub around 12ish I decided to save some money and ...

... River. These statues are quite haunting looking. There was actually a dedication plaque honouring the victims of the Great Famine laid here by Jean Chretien in 1999.

Oh, there was a huge police presence today as they were expecting protests as the budget was being delivered today in Parliament. Could make for an interesting afternoon.....turns out I only saw ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews O'Callaghan Mont Clare Hotel Dublin

    Terrific value in Dublin

    from

    We stayed 3 nights at the Mont Clare. The room was on the small size, but comparable in size to the B&Bs we stayed at. It was clean, quiet, bathrooms had been modernized, and the beds were comfortable. It's also in a great location within easy walking distance to Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Trinity College, the Dart station, and the bus from the Airport. There was a bar and a restaurant on site, but we didn't go into either. Staff at the front desk tried to be helpful, but I think English was a second language for everyone we spoke with.

    We paid the internet rate of 79euros per night per room. I am rating it as excellent based on the value for the money.

    Really enjoyed stay at Mont Clare

    from

    We just got back from our stay in Dublin and we were glad we chose the Mont Clare. The Aircoach bus from the Airport stops just round the corner in Merrion Square (ask the driver) and this was a real bonus as we had been awake since 6am and didn't fancy a trek around Dublin with our bags.

    Great!

    from

    We stayed here for two nights and found this hotel ideal. It had some style and the room, though maybe a bit small, was cozy and well-decorated. Bathroom was nicely renovated (although shower had a bit of peeling paint) with marble countertop. Nicely located within walking distance of St. Stephen's Green, Trinity College, and most everything else. Would definitely go back or recommend this hotel to friends!

    Great Location Great Price

    from

    I was on a very short trip to Dublin and tried to find a facility that was resonably priced while providing a decent location. The Mont Clare was able to deliver on both accounts. The hotel is situated very close to Trinity College, but far enough away from Temple Bar that the crazies didn't disrupt my sleep. The hotel was a bit worn, but the room was clean and the staff was very helpful. Transportation provided by AirCoach to and from the airport was a snap for 12 euro RT fare and the stop was just across the street. I originally considered the Hotel Prncipal, but decided to avoid due to the comments on this website and after making a quick visit while I was in Temple Bar, I am glad that I made Mont Clare my hotel of choice in the 3 star category. However, nothing is cheap in Dublin these days.

    Ideal

    from

    Good clean hotel, excellent food, and brilliant location.

    Not what I expected

    from

    The staff was friendly and helpful, they let us check in early but the heat in the rooms was unbearable, so we couldn't rest as we needed after the long flight, nor could I sleep well due to the temps, the windows only crack. The staff told us that we at least could leave, they had to stay and work in it! I also didn't expect twin beds but it was ok. Tea and coffee making facilities and a great breakfast helped, but I was disappointed that nothing besides a fan could be done. Good location.

    Mont Clare

    from

    The hotel itself is lovely. The staff nice--but the a/c was not functioning and from previous notecards left in the room, this was not a new development. Other than the heat a nice hotel.

    As expected

    from

    I stayed just one night as part of a whirlwind tour of SW & SE ireland.

    Good Value, Good Location

    from

    A very good 3 * hotel with tea and coffee making facilities in the room.

    Bathrooms had baths as well as showers, and essential bathroom goodies, e.g. hand cream bath gel etc, and a hairdryer in the room.

    Convenietally placed in the Georgian part of Dublin but just a few minutes walk to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells. Also very handy for the Dublin City Tour bus, literally across the road.

    Decent rates available for weekends, and a good breakfast with it and taxes included.

    Spent two nights last july on a tour with C.I.E tours and found the hotel to be excellent. it is centerally located by Trinity college and within walking distance of many tourist stops including Grafton street. The staff and service were great and so was the breakfast and dinner menus. Looking forward to my next trip to the Emerald Isle.
