    • Day tours from Dublin

      by adar1122 Online Now Oct 7, 2014 at 5:21 AM

      HI everyone. I love nature views ang great atmosphire so I think Ireland will be very interesting for a visit. I wanna go next year in June but I want to order flights and hostels in advanced. I don't want to rent a car... I checked and saw this company paddywagon for day tours from dublin... Do you know by any chance if thats the best tour company there? should I book a hostel for 10 days in dublin and go each day for a tour? I first thought to book also a hostel in belfast but I see they're taking a day tour to the giant cosway and belfast too... should I book a hostel in galway for the aran islands? I wasn't sure if they're taking to that place from the day tour.... also someone recommended me to go to the hill of tara and they don't go there... do you know if it's possible to go there from dublin to a day trip by public trasportation? thanks!!

      Looking for a good central hotel near good areas, restaurants, pubs but, quiet rooms. 3 star min.

      by charlesracine Online Now Sep 28, 2014 at 8:45 AM

      We are looking for a good hotel (not B&B) in Dublin close to the good tourist areas, restaurants and pubs though, quiet and quiet rooms with NO room to room noise. It should be a minimum 3 or 4 Star and if you have a specific hotel, please advise. We looked at a recent VT posting for the Camden Court Hotel, 4 star and it looked good, thanks to Beausoleil. All other suggestions are appreciated. Thanks to all VT comments.

      Saturday 11th, October. Any special event?

      by Miguelzgz Online Now Sep 26, 2014 at 2:08 AM

      We are searching for an hotel in Dublin for our final leg of our trip to Ireland. I don´t know if it is normal, but many hotels are fully booked that night, and prices are very high...then the day after everything is available and less expensive. Is there any special event that is causing this, or is it normal? Or maybe it is just me and a case of "bad luck in my search?".
      It is not a big problem as we´ll have a hired car, so we can spend that night out of Dublin and arrive the day after, but we would like to know.

      Thanks anyway...we are really looking forward the trip!!

      We are flying into Dublin for two days, then taking a short flight to Scotland for four days, then come back to Ireland for a driving tour outside Dublin. The flight to Scotland only allows for a small bag on the flight. Is there somewhere safe to store our larger bags while we are out of the country that's cheap/safe? We won't be staying in the same hotel after our return to Ireland.

    • Please help identify this Dublin hotel/guesthouse

      by aussiegal1 Online Now Jan 10, 2014 at 5:09 PM

      I will be traveling to Dublin later in the year and was hoping to stay in a hotel/guesthouse I saw once on a favourite tv show. I have no idea about the name but am hoping that someone on the forum may be able to help me identify it by recognising any of the following features:


      • Traditional style (high ceilings, chandeliers, dado rails on walls, fancy cornices and high kickboards)


      • The specific room featured in the show was a suite (started with a D - I think it may have been 'The Director's Suite'??)
      • Wallpaper was of a cream colour and had handwriting on it
      • Above the dado rail there was a strip of small prints (two different recurring images of fairies or angels??)
      • Three large windows next to each other (from ceiling down to dado) - the top of a large tree is visible from here
      • Bed has a high arched blue upholstered headboard
      • Blue carpet with a pattern of recurring pale mark
      • Curtains are cream with gold lines making a diamond pattern
      • Seems to be a fairly large room
      • White bathroom with double vanity and a small black chandelier
      • Note: As you open the door to the suite, there is a tiny alcove and you have the door to the bathroom directly in front of you and a door to the bedroom to your right.

      HALLWAY 1

      • Wall above dado rail painted creamy tan
      • Wall below dado rail painted deep red
      • White trims and doors
      • Mirrors and artwork decorations
      • Small straight hall (just a lift opening to approx. 6 doors, inc. fire escape)
      • The suite is at the end of the hall - directly facing the lift.

      HALLWAY 2

      • Silver wallpaper above dado rail (sort of a floral diamond pattern)
      • Painted a deep red below dado rail
      • White trims and doors
      • Unlike the other hallway this one (which I think is on a lower floor) has alcoves and other halls leading off in different directions.


      • Relatively small and seems to have doors that open on either side
      • Side interior walls are mirrored

      I have trawled through countless Dublin accommodation websites trying to find the right hotel/guesthouse from the hundreds on offer with no luck and would be very grateful for any suggestions from fellow 'forumers' who may be able to help me identify this place. Thanks!!! smiley
