Took us a while to find our hotel (The Drury Court Dublin Hotel), in the rain, down one way streets near Stephens Green. Took us even longer to find the hotel again once we parked. The hotel was older, but clean and the room was pretty big.
Ireland Traveler's Tip #1: When traveling in Ireland, try to find a hotel that includes onsite parking. Spend your time seeing the sights instead of lugging your stuff from your car to your hotel.
|Eden Restaurant - Dublin (sans Spocoli)|
Apparently celebrities go to this restaurant when they're in town, they told us that Sean Penn spent every night there when filming "This Must be the Place". Again, I wouldn't hold it against them.
Ireland Traveler's Tip #2: I can't recommend Rick Steves Ireland Guidebook enough. It gives you the off-the-beaten path places to visit, and also what to look out for in the touristy places.
