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.

... dessert? HEAVEN. Hazelnut cheesecake with fresh Irish cream and raspberry drizzle. It was so damn delicious I even allowed Lare to include this hideous picture of me so you could vicariously enjoy it, too.
At the end of our meal, we succumbed to trying a raisin scone as well, with fresh butter, cream and strawberry jam. Oh. my. God.

... of yore, which rotates clockwise as it goes up. About the only place spiral staircases are found today is generally in lofts; designed to save space. But while they may be an efficient way to eliminate encumbered square footage, as anyone who has ever negotiated one knows, they are a nuisance to climb up and down multiple times a day. Defense and safety, however, were the premier concerns of castle builders, not efficiency of space or nuisance avoidance. ...

We felt so shocked and sickened at Malaysian Airlines which our lovely NSW friends had flown out of Amsterdam on ,the exact same route, 48 hours previously, we have heard from them,and they are stunned and anxiously await news of friends that may have taken that flight,the route we flew to come here,and everyone ...
... br> It's after 9 here and I'm falling asleep. The fact that I'm still awake illustrates just how much I've liked Dublin, the excitement has kept me awake. I plan on exploring Dublin a bit more tomorrow, including returning to Trinity College to take pictures and explore more, that place is breathtaking. Then I'm off to Galway in the afternoon! This will sound cheesey but: as they say here, Cheers!
... and essays were to be seasonal. Last summer we saw prairie home companion taped at tanglewood and this was a much smaller but reminiscent event. We are so glad we went! I am sure we were the only non Irish people there and it really gave us such insight into Ireland, There were ten speakers all with stories that were humorous or poignant or sad or nostalgic and either about Christmas or about something that happened this time of ...
