Our adventure began at 12:30 pm on Friday when we boarded the bus to JFK. It took several hours to get to the airport through security with our large group. Once through, it was a scramble for food are electrical outlets. Molly, Sarah, Jenna and I found a charging station in a corner of the airport, we charged our devices for a few before we …

Cruise ends.-Travel to Dublin

A travel blog entry by peterdot


... assume to be the Alps with patches of snow on the highest parts with a lovely view of a town beside a lake and an airport at the southern end (Geneva?) and then the varying shades of brown of the parched fields of the French countryside interspersed with darker shades of bush and forest. A solid sheet of fluffy white cloud eventually hid our view of land before the English Channel was reached, in time dispersing to reveal the last remnants of the Welsh coastline and ...

... shopping district (It reminds me of Gran Via in Spain for you spain people). We found a rooftop restaurant and had a mediocre lunch. Some more wandering and map usage brought us to some churchs and cathedrals. And when it was finally 2 o clock (check in time!) we headed back to shower the travel off of us. The hostel were staying at us interesting. It's purple first of all (the main reason I booked it), and it's huge. Were on the top floor of this elevator-less building ...

... day.

Saturday we decided we would jump on the tourist bus to cruise around the main sights and get some of the history. Hopped on the bus and cruised down O'Connell Street (widest thoroughfare in Europe) past the spire (tallest free standing monument in Europe) and the General Post Office (which was actually quite interesting as it was the headquarters of the 1916 rebellion which had a major impact on Ireland's history). As soon as ...

A Wife of a Writer

... expertise to the MFA program at the college. When I ask Jesse to recount what he's gleaned from his classes I realize there's a lot more to writing than I previously imagined. For example one professor indicated that the greatest authors are those who know themselves the best, that writing requires self-exploration and discovery. It's only when the writer is open and honest about who they really are that they begin to establish their ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Dublin Airport Swords

    Smoky smell


    For 70 Euro's a night it was a large room with a good location if you have an early flight out of Dublin.The hotel is located in a small town called Swords, which has got a selection of resturants to grab a bite. The room we requested was non smoking but the smell of smoke was overwhelming.The bed was soft and no breakfast was included though there is an onsite facility to get breakfast/dinner.

    Dog Friendly - Pet Owners Note!


    We've stayed half a dozen times and would do so again, espcially when travelling with our dog. This is a basic hotel, clean and comfortable, unpretentious and not luxurious. It is good value for money. The long corridors comented on by other reviewers are a drawback if you're shifting heavy baggage - if this will be a problem, and if booking ahead, a room close to the reception should be asked for. The reception staff are kind and friendly - but one must first realise that in Irelend an offhand and somewhat uncouth manner is not necessarily meant to convey discourtesy. Travelodge would be well advised to invest in a one-day "Charm School" course for its personnel if the wrong impression is not to be given by basically likeable people. The best news about this hotel is that it accepts dogs - which very few hotels in Ireland do, and which is a reason why dog-owners from the UK and elswewhere should think twice about holidays in Ireland. The "Little Chef" restaurant attached to the hotel specialises in high-chlorestrol cooking - though acceptable for the odd breakfast, it is best avoided by the health-conscious for any more extensive dining. Note that thought this is billed as an Airport Hotel it is really only convenient for the airport if one is travelling by car, and, due to the road layouts, one would otherwise be quite isolated there, even from the nearby Swords Shopping Centre.

    DON'T DO IT!


    I bet you're thinking of saving some money, convenient to the airport, and after all how different can one airport hotel be from another? Well, our advice is, don't do it! First of all, 'Airport' hotel in this case doesn't imply anything with respect to getting to the airport, because there is no shuttle (either paid or free). It's a 10-pound cab ride -- and that's only if you're traveling TO the airport. If you're coming FROM the airport, double that amount. That's right, we paid the equivalent of $36 U.S. to travel the two miles or so to the hotel. Combine that with the $18 cab the other way, and you can see that the other airport hotel (right on the airport grounds) is a far, far better deal. As for the room itself: a severely torn couch greeted us, and the shower never got beyond 'dribble' (and we'd just traveled all around Ireland, so we're keeping that in perspective). Avoid!

    Room for 1!!!!


    Stayed one night, 1 towel and 1 cup in the room despite being told the room was for 3!!!! Extremely difficult to locate with the directions from the travelodge/superbreaks website. Glad I got a good deal with Superbreaks though!!! We were right at the back of the hotel, last room and got no sympathy at having to lug heavy bags up stairs to the room - no lifts!!!!

    Good Place to Stay If You Have an Early Flight out The Next Day


    This is not a fancy hotel. It is very clean and the trip to the airport is very short. I stayed with my wife and two children. There was one double bed and a Full size couch that made into two separate twin beds. There was a trundle under the couch that pulled out. This was perfect for us because my children do not like sleeping together.

    Nice Quiet Hotel


    I've stayed at the Travelodge numerous times while travelling from Dublin to other destinations. It's a very comfortable, clean and quiet place. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated in calming blue.

    OK Airport hotel


    If you need a hotel somewhat close to the airport this hotel is fine. It is clean and has large rooms along with "Denny's" type of restaurant next to the lobby. Cab fair to the airport is resonable.

    Great Price


    We got a great price at this location booking online. Close to airport, good for early flights. Room was clean, walking distance to shops and resturant. If we are back in the area we will stay here.

    Ideal for early flights.


    Stayed on 25th April. Flying to Texas on 26th. To be at airport for 6.00a.m. Our smoking room was spacious and served the purpose for an overnight. Had tea and coffee making facilities. Very reasonable pricewise. Receptonist was cheery and efficient. Got voucher for 20% off bill in Little Chef. Was able to fly off while others went back and used the voucher for breakfast. This little motel is ideal for early morning flights. Saved a 90 minute journey and having to be up at a very early time. Able to go into Swords for a night's entertainment. Made for a pleasant stay.

    Nice bed- shame about the legs and wheels!!


    Arrived and son fell off bed- a leg missing altogether. curtains hanging off track that wasn't attached to wall. Corridors like a mine field in the mornings- had to climb over the piles of dirty linen. Couldnt get into hotel at weekend- locked due to lack of staff. Day we left I fell off the bed- top of bed been supported by the Bible throughout our stay. Little Chef attached also short of staff and the continental breakfast came in fits and starts and the service was so slow.Complaint still ignored after 2 weeks.
