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.

... I'm in the Dublin airport right now and we're waiting to board our plane. I'm getting more and more sad thinking that I'm leaving. Someone in our group said it's weird that we are leaving a place that we may never come back to again. I know that someday I will be back because I learned so much here and it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
We set off from Donegal and head to Trim this involves travelling through Northern Ireland so a tad confusing re miles and kilometres along the way. We arrive in Trim and our hotel is fairly easy to spot once we locate Trim Castle as it is next door. Roddy decides to take us up a few more narrow streets as he thought that we missed out on these today during our long drive from Donegal.
We get settled and then decide we should get a bite to eat. We set off on a wild goose ...
... WITH AN 80 year old woman. I was left holding a handbag and walking stick while Mary went off to try some clothes on, she returned with her picks that fitted only to realise she didn't have her own jacket and had lost it in the change rooms, she went back in and couldn't find it, so the poor attendant had to go cubicle by cubicle asking if any one had seen it, to mum's relief it was found. Exhausted (me) we sat in a pretty patisserie had a coffee and a croissant and ...
... our way to Melbourne - YEO. Feeling pretty sleepy right now, sleeping hasn't been the best the past few nights with all the emotions associated with travelling. So this flight could involve a long nap! Also plan on utilising the seemingly class Emirates services to ease the longest flight I've ever been on! So that's all for now, me and Simba will be giving you the craic when we can. Keep safe people and enjoy your summer - see you on the other side! ...
... backdrop, reminding me of the opening montage of Coronation Street with a giant spaceship behind it.
Falling upon a comfy bed, we had exactly two hours until we were to rejoin our tour group for a bus tour of the city with a few important pitstops. The 8 day tour across Ireland had officially begun.
I was sorely tempted to stay on the comfy bed, however, the realization that I was here for a reason and that ...
