Sunday, Celine packed us up and brought us to see Trim Castle. Trim is the most complete remaining Norman fortress in Europe. It's also where Braveheart was filmed. The castle is amazing. Every piece of it was built to defend those inside. The planning put in to it was extremely detailed and very effective. One thing for sure, I will never see …

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I'm late with this last entry of our travel blog. Bill and I really were exhausted when we reached Trim. We checked in early to the hotel, went to lunch in the lobby Barista Bar (very tasty lunch specials) and then went back to our room for a short nap.

The weather was very chilly, windy and slightly …

Heading to Trim

... In Muirchú Moccu Mactheni's highly mythicized 7th century Life of Patrick, Lóegaire is described as "a great king, fierce and pagan, emperor of the barbarians". After a number of attempts by Lóegaire and others to kill Patrick, Lóegaire is warned by the saint that he must accept the faith or die. Having taken the counsel of his people, he submits and is baptised. St Erc was believed to be a pagan druid converted by Patrick and appointed ...

On day 3 we set off on a guided bus tour with Wild Rover Tours. Our guide was Karina and she was taking us to the medieval town of Kilkenny and then onwards to a town called Glendalough. She started by giving us some history on Dublin and told stories of famous Irish men. Most of the stories ended with people getting their heads chopped off so it was quite gruesome. She also told us about how Dublin got its name, and that where we were staying, in ...

... things looked promising. Bracing ourselves as we slid the key card in and out of our bedroom door, opening to find a room no nicer than a standard Travelodge. Swallowing our disappointment and applying a Puff of bronzer to hide our tired face, we shot out the door in search of a Good old Irish breakfast (which turns out, is exactly the same as an English breakfast). Don’t be disheartened…we did in fact have a fantastic two days in this funny city, only ...

    A very nice hotel with few amenities

    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.
