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.

... how that was even acceptable to put people in. After we left the jail we went to the Jameson whiskey experience. I went through the Middleton one and assumed it was going to be the same, but it was not so I was happy about that. This one was more animated than the Middleton one but it was still interesting to see how it was made and where it started from. Then we went to the oldest pub in Ireland. That was an interesting place. The place was packed and it took us about 10 ...
... in the movies and it was pretty amazing that they were still standing considering their age. After that we went to a castle in Kilkenny which was more my style because it was from the modern history timeframe. I was lucky enough to be let in for free because I was Australian but it was, to be honest, a bit of a let down after going to Neuchwanstein and the palace. The walls were covered in wallpaper, the decor was basic and about 80%25 of the building was not ...
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 ...
... A great way to end the day, drinking a few pints and chatting in some amazing pubs. The pubs in Dublin really are something. Gorgeous spaces, with friendly people. They are places were it's fine to go and read a book for a while, or just sit and people watch.
This was a funny day, in all. It was a big day, lots of walking, but without really seeing anything in depth. But a good start, and a good introduction to Dublin.
... cider which seems to be the norm as no one had a glass that was smaller (they don't do things small here!!)) i clapped and sang along, though stuffed the words up on songs i knew and sung the rhythm to those i didn't till i could barely keep my eyes open anymore. So back to the hotel for a spot of room service and repack for tomorrow's departure on my tour and this is one tired, content traveller signing off for the day. Miss you all heaps but this place is way to much fun!!! C ...
