... handshake. We got talking for about 10 minutes and I learnt that he was a musician on his way to practise. He wasn't playing that night, which if he had been would have been the icing on the cake to this chance meeting, but he did offer me a few useful tips on the trams to get me back to Temple Bar and where I should go to see him play if I ever came back to Dublin. After he left I marvelled at how wonderful life can be sometimes, throwing coincidence after coincidence at ...

The three of us left after a while to go and get some subway, but we stopped at a small takeaway place called Maguires, where Darren and I chose to try a baguette sub type sandwich instead, then went to subway for Pancho to get his. We stopped by an off license on the way back for some more beer, then spent a decent amount of hours at a table in the common room just drinking and jamming and doing a few covers here and there, ...

... some. Unfortunately you need a prescription for Malarone (which the Tropical Medical Buero doctor told me were best). He apparently even gave me a piece of paper, but I hadn't realized it was a prescription. Luckily the pharmacist was very helpful and suggested to call the TMB to send a fax with the prescripton. All this worked out well and now I did get my drugs.

... have that over with. The next thing I need is to get a phone out here that works and has an Irish phone number. One step at a time I know. I'm looking to start a coaching job in the next few days or week to earn a little extra money. My coach on the thunder is trying to sort that out for me so hopefully he comes through soon. Once that happens I will feel a lot better about being here for a while. I also posted an ad on craigslist offering basketball training sessions ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Fitzwilliam Hotel Dublin

    Internet Ripoff

    from

    Good location, markets itself as hip business hotel but complete ripoff on Internet. 1+ Euro per minute. No excuse. for this type of scam

    Meaningful trip in october

    from

    I stayed here in October. First trip home in a few years. Really, a great hotel with a few problems to iron-out. My trans-atlantic flight came in pretty early in the morning and I was unable to relax and sleep ANYWHERE. I was very upset that there wasn't even a quiet 'Louge- area' to go for a few hours before I could check-in. To add insult to injury, the first available room was (as you've probably guessed) pretty much on top of the building site. This was VERY noisy. Apart from that, the staff where great .......what else can I say, tastefully decorated.

    Just hate construction when making a memorable stay at a hotel.

    Enjoyable stay

    from

    We stayed here two nights in October 2003. The staff was very helpful.

    The rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. The hotel had a feeling of class and elegance. Best of all it was in an ideal location for touring the city. I would definitely stay at the Fiitzwilliam again.

    P.S. The Shower was the best shower pressure I have ever experienced in my life. That alone made the visit! For those of you who watch: It was like the Seinfeld episode with the black market shower head used only on elephants!

    The Firzwilliam for Comfort

    from

    The Fitzwillliam is extraordinarily comfortable. Our superior grade room was elegant, of good size and quiet despite the work on the hotel's addition and Dublin's new transit system just opposite. The room on the third floor has a view of St. Stephen's Green. During our five-night stay, the staff efficiently took care of our needs, including arranging tours and other events. Our only concern was the restaurants, which seemed over priced, but this was a small matter because so many fine establishments are within a few blocks.

    Tough to maintain class amidst construction

    from

    We stayed at the Fitzwilliam for two days. There was construction EVERYWHERE! We could hardly see the hotel for the construction next door and the lovely park across the street was completely obscured by barriers due to some sort of repair or construction.

    I think the staff was bravely trying to carry on despite all these problems, but it was hard for them. To make our stay worse, a concierge directed us to the wrong events and the hotel bar was not air conditioned so it was swealtering in the uncharacteristically warm September weather.

    Generally, I think the hotel is a bit pompous. A doorman wearing formal coats with tails is a bit much.

    Perhaps things will improve when the construction is finished, but I will never stay there again.

    Location, style, quality

    from

    I stayed in the Fitzwilliam with my girlfriend over Valentines, paying euro 110 for the room on an internet offer via the hotel website. As soon as we arrived in the lobby I realised I was going to be in the good books fo the rest of the trip, as the sense of style and understated luxury was clear. This is a Terence Conran designed hotel, and the modern, minimalistic yet comfortable furnishings and decorations are fantastic. The rooms are very comfortable, though some do look onto construction work behind the hotel (is to be expected sometimes in a big city). This didn't detract at all from a fantastic stay. Thge bathrooms too are lovely, with large bath tubs and elegant detail. The main restaurant (Peacock Alley) is mega-expensive and probably one of Dublin's most expensive restaurants, but the bistro (Citron) is cheaper but excellent value with quality service and even better food. In short, well worth the stay at one of Dublin's classiest hotels.

    Ripped Off

    from

    I chose the Fitzwilliam for my 2-night trip to Dublin because the reviews on this site were so complementary! I had booked a "Superior Double overlooking the Largest Roofgarden in Europe" and was assigned an Executive room, level with the roofgarden. My view of the roofgarden was a patch of grass, plusa huge screen with a crane behind it. The roofgarden was being dug up and there was plenty of noise to prove it!

    I suggested that I had been assigned the incorrect room and was told to take it up with the internet travel company I booked with. As if this wasn't enough - the electricity in our room was off for 3 hours during the second afternoon.Very bad experience

    Pleasant but pricey

    from

    The fitzwilliam is right in the centre of the shopping and restaurant district in Dublin and opposite the great St Stephens Green park . When it stops raining all the locals suddenly come out here to play.The hotel has style and staff are pleasant and helpful. We stayed in a cheaper room which was on the small side for a luxury establishment although the bathroom was good.The Hotels Citron restaurant was good and reasonable but beware the fabled Thorntons which is also in the hotel.It maybe the best in Ireland but i guess the prices must be amongst the highest in Europe.A great place to stay if you can get a good deal.

    Great Style and Location

    from

    Decided to book a surprise valentine's weekend for my wife at the Fitzwilliam in Feb03 and I have to say that the hotel lived up to all expectations. The location was great being close to some of the best shops and restaurants in Dublin. The sytle of the hotel was superb - whilst it was very contemporary it still exudes sophistication and class without being pretentious. As it was Velentine's, I tried to book into a number of restaurants to no avail. In the end, I reluctantly booked in to the Citron restaurant within the hotel. I say reluctanctly as at the time I thought the price was pretty high. In hindsight, it was worth spending the extra as the meal was excellent.All in all this is a great hotel in a great location and if you find a good deal (try Expedia) then you're sure to be pleased with your choice.

    Perfect Location, Worth a splurge!

    from

    This is a sleek and sexy Hotel in the perfect area of Dublin. Across the street is one of the most beautiful city center parks in Europe- Stephens Green. To the left as you leave the Hotel is Grafton Street, the fantatstic pedestrian only shopping district. The Rooms are spacious and have many special amenities. The Hotel Retaurant, Peacock Alley, is one of the best in Europe and a must. Do yourself the favor and splurge on this Hotel. Do not let the Modern look turn you off. Spend hours relaxing in the rooftop garden.
