This is the 2nd time i have stayed at the Arlington. 1st time was for a hen weekend with 11 other women, this time was with my husband, son and his fiance, so 2 totally different trips but enjoyed both . Our flight arrived at 9am but we couldnt check in til 2. The very helpful receptionist said we could leave our bags there, which we did.
We hopped on the green tour bus and went to visit the Guiness Storehouse, which is well worth a visit. If you make it to the top of the building you get a free pint of Guiness, which i have to say went down a treat. Word of warning...if you dont like heights, which i dont, be prepared for the glass lifts and steep escalators!! Brilliant shop although the things they sell there can be bought at any of the Carrolls Gift Shops in Dublin for a few Euros cheaper. Eventually made our way back to the Arlington and checked in. We had rooms 123 and 128. These were both on the 1st floor. We could here the music from the nightclub in the bowels of the building but this didnt really bother us. The food was excellent. Staff very helpful. The Irish dancing and music in the club underneath was excellent, even my husband enjoyed that and he is hard to please!!
Taxi from there to airport cost 30 euros which really isnt too bad as the bus was 28 euros for the 4 of us. On the whole we thoroughly enjoyed the trip
Would i go back to the Arlington? Definately.
