      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
