We arrived in Dublin following a long flight from Chicago, IL-USA at 1 pm and dropped off our luggage at the hotel. The receptionist was polite, friendly and we were happy with the lobby and surrounding area, the rooms were comfortable and clean. We got the correct change from the reception for the bus which was one block from the hotel and it took approx. 10 minutes to get to Parnell street. The bus was 1.60 euros pp. each way. We walked around Dublin, shopped, visited Trinity College, toured the Book of Kells exhibit and surrounding area. Returned to hotel, exhausted from the transatlantic flight and little sleep. Went back to the room for a short rest and overslept in the very comfortable bed and bedding. We decided to stay in for the night and get ready for our tour to Cork, Blarney the next day. My teenager woke up around 10 pm and was hungry. The hotel cafe was closed by then but the reception offered to bring us sandwiches. They quickly brought us two roast beef sandwiches on brown bread with cheese and horseradish, along with two plates of coleslaw. It was good. I felt very comfortable there and my only complaint is that it is away from the city centre, but I found the staff very friendly. We did have soup and bread in the hotel restaurant one night and service was mediocre along with the soup but it should be noted that it was closing time again.
