Hello from Ireland!!! So it is day 3 here and we have done SO much already! We got in around 8:30 in the morning and our professors were determined not to let sleep! We took a long walk (that seems to be a theme on this trip) and oriented ourselves with Dublin. We have had great weather so far too which is nice! We went into the heart of Dublin …
On our 4th day we started off at the National Museum after classes, which was cool because they had bog bodies, which are bodies found intact and preserved by the bogs, a popular landscape in Ireland. We also went to Trinity College downtown, where they have the Book of Kells, which is a copy in Latin of the four gospels and it was very ornate with …

The finest day in Mayo GAA modern times came in 2006 when we beat Dublin in an all-Ireland semi-final after being 7 points down half way through the 2nd half. This game on the 1st Sunday in September is a repeat of that fixture & is the next chapter in Mayo GAA history. I guarantee you are going to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sandymount Hotel Dublin
This hotel was slightly out of the city, but not by much, and a walk from the bus stop. Try asking a local how many stops until you get to Landsdowne Rd because that's the stop you need to take. Cross the street and go past the stadium.. keep going (should look like a residential area) and there it is on the right. The hotel offers a quaint room with more than adequate spacing and friendly staff. The room we stayed in was ensuite and everything advertised was available. It was slightly mucky but we informed the check-in clerk and it was rectified immediately. They even allowed us to check in early to catch some ZZZ's before we went out for the day. The bistro/bar downstairs offered a variety of foods at reasonable prices. I have even sent my Mom to this hotel so... it's trustworthy. Dublin is a wonderful city with quite a few places to visit. My recommendation is to visit the Jameson Distillary first to obtain a wonderful (free) map of the city.. the best one we found. It does pay to plan out where you are going in this city because everything is within walking distance, but plan to walk a lot! Have fun!
A Very Good Basic Hotel
I stay in the Mount Herbert regularly as I am often in Dublin on business and it is within 15 minutes walk of where I work. It is a bright and spacious hotel with ample car parking. The rooms are basic but comfortable. Breakfast is served from 7am (but I've often turned up at 6.45 with no problem) and there is a good range of juices, cereals, fruit and hot food. Later on in the day the bar serves good food up to 10pm and is very reasonable price-wise. It is situated in a secluded street near the Landsdowne Road football stadium and is very quiet at night thus ensuring a good rest. It's not a place I'd necessarily bring my wife for a weekend away but for business travellers or those on a tight budget it's ideal.
Got a single room rate, including breakfast, through laterooms for E79 which was fairly good.
Hotel well situated for Aircoach and the Dart although Dart presently not running at weekends due to line improvements.
Bedroom small with small bed, clean but rather disappointing. Breakfast good with an excellent fruit salad.
Staff problems noted, saw front desk staff in verbal arguments with other staff on two occasions over luggage and room service.
3 star just about, certainly no more.
This is an old victorian style hotel, just outside of Dublin. Our room was very large and it had basic furniture. The breakfast was good. We paid $94 for a double including breakfast. It has free parking. Not a luxury hotel but overall good value. The price is very reasonable. If you are price conscious, go for Mount Herbert...
Decent enough for the price!!!
The hotel had an offer of 39.50 Euro per person B&B sharing during the month of January, 2005....that is like £28...incredible offer for a hotel in Ballsbridge, the swankiest district of Dublin!!!...especially for a weekend night which was when we were staying...a Saturday!!!
We had a triple room...nothing fancy...but, clean enough. The bar's nice and trendy enough...breakfast was grand...plenty of parking behind the hotel, so cars are safe.
Definitely would consider staying at the hotel again if I'm out solely to party in Dublin!!!...especially if any similar offers were on!!!!
Quiet, Reasonable Hotel
Room was quite spacious for a double (included an extra single bed). Water from taps was scaldingly hot and slightly brown - some renovation work was underway to the restaurant which may have been to blame. Breakfast was OK but choice was a bit limited. Setting was peaceful (except the two hours when a football match was taking place at Lansdowne Road 100 yards away - but that was to be expected). Convenient for the DART into Dublin centre (6 minute ride and 6 euros for a three day ticket). Generally clean and comfortable and decent value for the price (79 euros a night for B&B for two) and the staff were friendly and helpful. Some local info / guides etc would have been useful in reception.
Quiet Hotel Away from the noise of the pubs
We had a wonderful experience at the Mount Herbert. It was our first stopping point when we arrived in Ireland. We took the Aircoach bus from the airport to the Pembroke Road stop. It was a walk of three long blocks to the Mt. Herbert. Our family room had a double bed and two singles, perfect for our 10 and 11 year olds. The restaurant was closed the three nights we stayed, but the bar was serving dinner. The food was very good. The full Irish Breakfast each morning was also good. The restaurant overlooks a very beautiful garden. There is a playhouse and playground equipment in the garden for younger children. I can not get over how quiet it was at this hotel. The DART station is within easy walking distance. We also took taxies and it was between 7 and 10 Euros for the four of us to go back and fourth to the center of Dublin. The Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Mount Herbert to anyone who wants to stay in a quiet upscale neighborhood.
Just loved it!
Wanting just a wee break away for a few nights with our son and toddler grandaughter and attracted by the fair price and the fact of a garden for our grandaughter. We set off. We were pleasantly surprised. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived until we left, friendly, helpful and also professional. The triple room with a cot, whilst a little on the small side was clean and comfortable. The restaurant was excellent and very child friendly. The Dart is only a few minutes walk away and took us into the centre of Dublin - no need to worry about where to park the car etc.
We hope to return again and again.
Still going strong!
It had been some time since I stayed at the Mount Herbert, so when I returned for one night recently I was interested to see if it was still the same. I was not disappointed. It is not "Grade A" but a very good B+. The rooms vary but most are large and airy. All are very clean and comfortable, with all facilities you might require. I note that they do now provide tea and coffee making in rooms. Breakfast is very good. Location is quite near city centre. The DART (rapid train to city) station is a few minutes walk away. There is a very quite atmosphere as there is no bar. Location is in an upmarket residential part of Dublin. Many singles stay here. Prices are usually OK. You may be able to get offers.
Lovely, quiet place, but very near the city centre
It's a very quiet place, well situated, quite near the city centre, but into a very peaceful zone. The instalations and facilities are very good, and the staff is very kind.
