We toured Ireland the 3rd week of October 2013, and had the most amazing time. Driving around Irland is very daunting , and when you get to your hotel for the evening one would expect to rest, relax, and enjoy the rest of the evening. If you end up, or start for that matter, in Dublin, Ireland, you should consider staying at the Croke Park Hotel. It's on the North side of the city, away from most of the hussle and bussle of the main tourist area. 6 Euro will get you to where you want to go in Dublin. When we checked in to the Croke Park , we were met with one of the most friendly fronts desks I've ever encountered. The "Lass" (I forgot to get her name) got us checked in and situated on everything we were going to need to know during our stay. Once in our rooms, we found them very well appointed, and comfortable. One strange thing though, and we found this at all 5 hotels we stayed in, was that there was a queen bed and a small single bed. If you travel Ireland in a group, you should keep that in mind.. The only problem we encountered with our stay was in the Sideline Bistro. After a long day of touring Dublin , we went to the Hotel's Sideline Bistro for deserts and cocktails. The food and beverages were excellent, but only had one round. That was because we never got our server to return to us. I'm sure this was an isolated personal problem, and am confident after talking and e-mailing the Manager, Sean, that this wll not happen again. Being that this was our last evening in Ireland ,it did upset us a bit. The next morning we had a wonderful breakfest and the food and service was excellent. When we return to Ireland (4 couples ) we would like to spend a few days just in Dublin, and we WILL be staying at the Croke Park Hotel.
