A November 2006 trip
to Dublin by MalervyC
Quote: This was my second trip to Ireland. We stayed in Dublin most of the time but had the opportunity to see many different parts of the country. We did some tours and ventured up to Northern Ireland.
Hotel | "Days Inn Talbot Street"
We booked our airfare and hotel on Travelocity and got a great rate. The Days Inn on Talbot Street was very clean, contrary to some of the things I read on Trip Advisor and other sites. Let's be frank... it's a 2 star hotel, it's in the middle of town, and it's cheap... you get what you pay for. The room was small, but the bed was comfy and big enough for two people to sleep very comfortably. Our window looked out over Talbot Street which is a very busy street in Dublin. I read that it was noisy and that people couldn't sleep, but I didn't find it to be that bad. At night, it was normal hustle and bustle, sounds of cars. I grew up in the city of Philadelphia, so it was nothing new to me.
My cousin and I found it amusing listening to the drunk Irish singing their songs at midnight! The bathroom was of OK size, the shower was tiny. Not the best of water pressure, but it was always warm and we never lost the temperature of the water. There was a lift for you to take your luggage and an outside veranda for you to smoke. They front desk people were very nice, especially Nick who helped us book our tours. All together, I would definitely go back here to stay. The price was right, the room was clean, small bathroom... but the good out weighed the bad in our experience.
