staying in a castle

by lauzon

me and 5 friend are going to Dublin between games for the rugby world cup and I was thinking it would be cool to stay in a castle. Any recomendations for an old castle taht will not cost over 200Euros a night?

Well theres a hostel in Co Kilkenny called Foulksrath Castle that#s very reasonable. Other than that you'll have to get onto places and bargain. One of the most famous Irish castle hotels is Ashford Castle in Mayo. Its a great place but it ain't cheap!

THere are a few I can think of, but I think you might have to pay a bit more than €200/night...

- Fitzpatrick's Killiney Castle
- Clontarf Castle
- Luttrellstown Castle

Travel Tips for Dublin

Rain and more rain

by IrishFem

Almost all Irish people are friendly. You do get the odd drunk annoying you for money. We don't have a summer but never mind, its still an exciting place to visit and as l said very friendly. In fact actually we do get some sunshine and you will find Irish people in teeshirts even if it's cold outside lapping up the little bit of sun that comes through the clouds on the way to England...June, July and August are probably the best months to visit Ireland but only for the weather. Then again a lot of people would disagree because our weather is so unpredictable. It's usually warm and its also the liveliest time of year with festivals on throughout the country. During September and October would be a better option if you want to avoid the hundreds of tourists and also reasonably mild weather. You can catch a game in Croke Park of the hurling and football finals.

Other months the weather is pretty bad but no queues. And people tend to be more relaxed. This year 2010 in January the weather has been recorded as the coldest in 28 years with snow, sleet and rain.

Stag & Hen Parties in Dublin

by orlikins

This is for the UK visitor who is thinking of coming to Dublin for a stag/hen party. It's probably best if you don't come to Dublin for it, go to another Irish city. Here is why.

If you're booking accomodation, DO NOT tell them you're a UK stag/hen party because all of a sudden, it's "Oh dear, fancy that, we're fully booked". They don't have a good rep here, I'm sorry to say.

Stag/Hen-friendly places would be either Club M in Temple Bar or Break for the Border, near Stephens Green or Trinity Arch on Dame St.

A lot of bars in Dublin City Centre will not let stag/hen parties in at all, so hide the plastic willies and boobies if you can.

Some pubs in Temple Bar even have signs up saying "No Stags or Hen parties", so you really have to be on your best behaviour if you want to go somewhere decent, otherwise you'll just end up in crap cheesy nightclubs with a load of other UK stags and hens.

If anyone in the party shows signs of "getting merry", they WILL be asked to leave - I have seen this happen a couple of times in bars (e.g. The Bank in Dame St).

There are loads of other things to do in Dublin, get out of the English colony that is Temple Bar and see the *real* character of the city :-)

South from Essex Bridge on to Parliment Street

by Kentbein

As we cross Essex Quay into the earliest portion of Dublin, we'll walk up Parliament Street. This area was actually just outside of the original walled city of the Norman's, but it's the route I took working my way towards Christchurch, so it's the route you will take if you follow me on this adventure. It's not a bad walk by any means, so gather your courage and come along anyway. It may take us a while to reach the Church, but we'll get there.

The first landmark at Essex Quay and Parliament Street is the Lever Building, also known as the Sunlight Chambers building. As I've mentioned, do get used to everything having dual names in Dublin. It's an integral part of their psyche to do this to us.

The Lever Building was the headquarters building for the Lever brothers of Lever Brothers Soap fame. This beautiful old building is one of the few that thankfully managed to escape the wrecker's ball during Dublin's misfortunate "redevelopment" period.

Many gems throughout the city were horrifically lost before heart sickened Dubs were finally able to rally enough political influence to stop the Dublin Corporation's misguided definition of "progress" as they destroyed much of the city making room for new, "improved" buildings . Historic preservation laws saving the remaining masterpieces from ruin were finally inacted in the 1970's, I believe, but not before far too much of the city was stolen.

Park along side City Hall

by Kentbein

There's not a lot going on in this little park, although it does provide a bench and out of the way place to rest between during work breaks, and is a nice out of the way place to change film in cameras, read the map getting your bearings, or stopping to catch your breath.

The statue shown serves as the landmark for the park and lets you know you're in the "right" place.
