We only stayed here for one night but for the life of me, I can't figure out why the Irish Hotel Assoc. gives this property four stars. The rooms are nice, the people helpful but the amenities are few. No pool, jacuzzi, gym, business center, practical gift shop or spa facilities are either on site or available. While we were there, the nice restaurant, Jules, was not open. The Baileys Bar was sufficient for pub grub and drinks but that was about all. The Barista Bar was great for lunch, surprisingly tasty and good food.
The front desk computer was terribly slow, so much that it couldn't print out directions to the Dublin Airport. Our receipt for expenses paid was completely unreadable on the right hand side due to printer malfunctions. And don't even try to use the pay by the second internet connection in the lobby, it is slower than a 240 baud modem! That particular annoyance cost me 6 euro just to print out our boarding passes!
You can get a voucher for wi-fi in your room or use of a leisure club down the street a bit. The breakfast was something we never got to try because we had to leave the hotel at a very early hour but they did prepare a small continental breakfast for us (at 4:00 am) to eat in the lobby lounge. They were also very good with the 3:30 am wake up call.
I was completely satisfied with what we had but was underwhelmed with the offerings available.

"Hello Ian, I have two requests if I may? They are for Jean-Paul the young Dutch pilgrim who died walking to Roncevalles in February of this year. I know, from exchanges on this forum, that I and many others carried this young pilgrims memory in our hearts to Santiago. The second name is that of Joseph Carty, a fellow Irish pilgrim, who died just outside Ponferrada at the ...
... the town looking for a place to eat and end up at a restaurant right next to the castle. It was very nice and they served me the biggest serve of Ribs on the planet.
We have a good night sleep and then the next day we head to Newgrange to see Knowth, Dowth, and Newgrange. These are tomb monuments that date back to 5000bc.
What a huge operation. You are only able to access these via the visitor centre which involves a walk to get there.We then purchase our ...
Hola! Nothing terribly new to report, but I am genuinely trying to keep up with the blogging even when I don't have anything earthshaking to write about. Classes started Monday, which is good and bad. Good, because we were all running around spending far too much money and generally being pretty aimless, and bad, because... its class. I am taking 3 classes, and since the mini-semester is SO mini, its kind of like a summer ...
... for. We arrive at reception and are able to take our gold tour now as some people that had booked a silver have not turned up so its our luck there is a guide with nothing to do. It's like having our own private tour as we are the only two on it. It's a little more interesting than Jamesons as the whiskey here is still made in the old distillery just using modern equipment, and its a working distillery not just ...
... of the plane was the "St. Padraig". I guess the Irish like to name all of their planes for some reason. The plane left on time and was very comfortable. Aer Lingus does a good job of taking care of their passengers. Everyone has a personal entertainment center that has a few dozen movies, TV shows, and Music Channels. I was able to watch "Silver Linings Playbook" (not bad) and about 4 sitcoms. After dinner (a sweet and sour pork dish that was surprisingly very good), I was able ...
