But a short shuttle ride, costing 2 euro each, will get you to the airport within ten minutes. .
When we arrived by taxi (20 euro) from downtown Dublin we were amazed to find that the venue is not AT the airport. When asked the reception clerk said that there are three (3) Hilton hotels in Dublin and this venue is the closest to the airport. Thus: Ha Ha!! (Turns out the only hotels right next to the airport are Clarion and Radisson.)
The room with a king bed is large by European standards with blond veneer furniture. Included is a lounging chair and ottoman, a round glass-top table, a work counter with a work chair, a 40 inch TV, one bathrobe, one pair of bathroom slippers, an iron and ironing board. The in-room safe did not work. Just when we were thinking that this venue did not deserve the Hilton brand name we had breakfast this morning. Well done!! They acquitted themselves.
But the Hilton chain's obnoxious policy of charging 15 euro per day for in-room WIFI is off putting so we went to the lobby to use it for free. The last thing I want to do is fatten the bonus checks of top management of the chain.
