After a long overnight trip from LA in USA it was great to see the Green Paddy Wagon arrive at Dublin airport to collect me...for FREE, I might add too! Bonus 1...
I was only going to stay for 3 nights at Paddy' Palace hostel in Dublin, but the place was so warm and friendly, I ended up staying for 7 nights.
A budget hostel is a budget hostel and I wasn't expecting too much but I was made so welcome, even for my age...no one commented about it and I was treated by the staff and other backpackers as one of them.(I am well and truly a senior senior).
The girls and guys on the front desk were amazing and always smiling and helpful, so much so that I just couldn't be bothered moving to a different hostel in another area. Thanks Alita, Abby, Kate, Tony and all the amazing Bus drivers, esp Shaun. Once I got the WIFI working I was one happy camper and stayed on, enjoying the comings and goings of guests and watching the staff handle so many people from so many different places around the world... Bonus 2
If you stay at Paddy's for 2 nights you get a FREE full day tour to Glendalough and Kilkenny Castle if available Mon-Thurs and that was such a beautiful trip. (By the way, the Castle has a great tea room in the original kitchen of the Castle, with real china tea pots, cups and plates. The beautiful copper kitchenware is also on display there...fully recommend you go have a cuppa and pastries there)... Bonus 3.
I left feeling part of the Paddywagon family and feel I would be disloyal if I came back and didn't go to Paddy's again!
