My wife took me to Dublin as a surprise birthday present to see the band Muse and booked the Hampton hotel in Donnybrook.
Our early flight from Bristol got us into Dublin nice and early and the bus from the airport took us directly outside the hotel.
Too early to check in, but the receptionist was really friendly and let us leave our small backpacks with her. As it was early we sat down in the restaurant and tried to get some breakfast..... Tried being the key word here as even though it wasn't that busy (3-4 tables inc us) we just didn't get served...after what felt like eternity (probably only 15 minutes) we decided to leave as we still couldn't get the waitresses attention.
We headed south for a couple of minutes by foot and found a great cafe (I think it's called Cafe Java). The breakfast there was top notch !!
After a great day in Dublin we came back to the hotel to actually check in and change before going to the gig. The room was great, very large, very spacious, huge bathroom.
The tv was a monster flat screen and the remote also controlled the really cool looking fire, there was also free wifi that was quick enough to Facetime home.
After the gig we came back to the hotel for a cocktail nightcap and saw a few people waiting to get into the club downstairs. We had read some reviews that the club was noisy but we didn't hear a thing and slept really well.
Overall a really nice hotel in a really nice part of town, nice rooms, great decor, really sensibly priced and in sensible walking distance to the centre. Whilst the breakfast service was really slow when we arrived; we at least got to sample the breakfast at Java twice.
