... close the doors. Eve and I figure there must be some more bus stops up the road for this bus so we walk to the next one...still can't board the bus. So we walk up the street to the next one. We are in luck at the next bus as we are among the few people to fit on board. We have to stand but we are OK with that since it's taken more than 45 minutes to get on a bus. At the mob bus stop, our bus is rushed by then drunken and foolish. Our bus driver stops the bus and shouts ...
... meet their travel accomodations to London. Those of us who took the ferry very much underestimated the walking distance and would highly recommend taking a cab to anyone who thinks walking is a good idea in the future. The ferry set sail mid afternoon and we are on our way to London! We will post more in the coming days of our adventures there!

Everything on the menu is quality and for dessert you must try their

... Michael sitting at the end of her bed. Thankfully the Queen is well practiced in small chit-chat, which developed trust before cleverly asking Michael if he'd like a cigarette. The Queen phoned for a cigarette "for the man at the end of my bed". Then obviously he was taken away but only charged with stealing, the wine and biscuits, as at that time Buckingham Palace wasn't a 'designated site' so he wasn't trespassing as such...According to the Aussie guide who told me ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beacon Hotel Dublin
Extremely stylish, modern hotel, love it!
Stayed here with my boyf. Had a great time, can't fault it. Has to be the best room I've ever seen. Style, Style , Style!! Great atmosphere in the bar. Fabulous hotel, will definitely stay here again.
I chose the Beacon for a 2 night get away from the kids first time since they were born 4 years ago. The accomodation was cheapest i could find and i wasnt disappointed Far from it! This hotel is a 4* and complete luxury.
Honeymooned at the Beacon
We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Beacon Hotel. Our honeymoon!! The room was fantastic, decorated beautifully & well equipped. Food, both breakfast & evening meals excellent.
The only downful was the noise from the ongoing building works next door which woke us very early every morning and the lact of public transport in the local area (10 - 15 minute walk to Luas, tram service).
Had a few problems with the lift not working using our entry card resulting in us having to re-activate our card, but otherwise a very pleasant stay
I have just returned form two nights stay a teh Beacon.
The Beacon is one of Dublin's newest and hippest hotels. However it is in a (crrently) dreadful location in Sandyford Industrial Estate where construction is ongoing, so be prepared for a lot of hard hats & safety barriers in the area. During the day, it's most visible but at night when you look out of the window, the lights of Dublin city twinkle merrily before you!
Funkiest Hotel in Dublin!!
Just loved this Hotel we stayed last weekend and it is so close to Dundrum, the newest Shopping centre to take Dublin by storm and we were able to get the Luas in to the City although the Bar and restaurant in the Hotel were so good we did not want to leave.
The rooms had gorgeous baths with plasma TV's in the bedrooms and were the height of luxury and comfort! Cant wait to go back !!!!
First Class accomodation
We were attending a trade fair for four days in dublin, we stayed at the beacon hotel for just two nights.
Although tricky to find being situated on an industrial estate, it was well worth the trouble.
Absolutly stunning hotel in every way, the lobby, bar, dinning room, terrace, bedrooms all first class, and the food is exquisite, mostly asian cuisine, makes my mouth water just to think about it.
The bedrooms were immaculate, ive stayed in the westbury hotel in dublin, which is an old hotel of excellence, well the beacon is of the same standard.
The staff were polite and very helpful, i really had no complaints at all.
A busy hotel with the public dropping in to eat drink and socialise.
Try it you wont regret the experience.
We've only just got back from 2 nights B & B at The Beacon having booked it based on reviews from TripAdvisor. Overall the staff are very friendly and professional and the hotel is unusual and has some good trendy features such as the foyer with the bed in it and oversized furniture aptly positioned around the hotel. However it leaves a lot to be desired for a 4 star new hotel. Having had difficultly in actually finding the hotel as it was so far outside Dublin the 8 cranes surrounding it made it stand out in the industrial estate where it is located. The whole area in which it is located is a building site and suitably noisey. We booked a nonsmoking king size executive room with a good view but our room smelled heavily of smoke and overlooked a tile warehouse and car dealership (allbeit Mercedes). When we complained it was listed as non smoking and no other king size rooms were available. We went to switch on the aircon to freshen the room in this new 4 star hotel to discover there was no air con in any of the bedrooms! We couldn't stand the road noise when tried opening the windows. In the bar drinks and the atmosphere were good but the food we had at lunch time in the restaurant I had to send back and have changed. Had breakfast in our room and in the restaurant - not much diffence as both poor. Wouldn't stay again.
We have just spent two nights at The Beacon. It really is a beautiful hotel. The rooms are the nicest I've ever stayed in. We had an executive room on the fifth floor, although the hotel is set in an unattractive area of town the views from our room were amazing - we could even see the sea. At night Dublin looked beautiful with all the lights. The location wasn't at all bad though, we were close to the station and not far from the centre. Also we were very close to Dundrum which is currently adding to its shopping centre so that it will soon be the biggest in Europe.
