Dublin, Dublin, Dublin-my fav hotels

Ok so …most of people have this strange list of all the places they would like to visit before they die!

As you can imagine, those lists vary, as people and tastes do….However, there is almost always one country that features prominently on nearly every list. You know that I am not making this up…IT’S IRELAND!

Yeah…imagine this…. green and romantic, majestic and historical, as if untouched by time.

Ireland was very lucky as it was not destroyed in the II World World such as Poland for example (Warsaw was bombarded and destroyed by 90% so you get the picture) No!!! Ireland still has a lot of historical buildings, old medieval castles, gates, churches and so on and so forth. You can feel like you traveled back in time!

But what can be a country without its capital city? Dublin really is a magnificent city. You will probably find it much smaller than other European capitals but..it is surely busy and a lot is going on. We have a great range of attractions, not to mention some of the best pubs in the world. It’s a modern city with big companies such as Google, AdRoll . Johnson and Jonsnon, Abott or Twitter now residing in Ireland! Bet you didn’t think that hehe 🙂 It looks so cool at night with the new bridges and architecture too!

To be able to explore Dublin and enjoy the city to the fullest you must choose a good iconic hotel, that would not only provide exceptional level of service, great local food, good location and facilities. No you want something more, something intangible such as EXPERIENCE! 

Hey..what does that mean? Well, in my view it means:

A) Enjoying yourself to the fullest

B) Falling in love with the hotel

C) Developing a feeling of nostalgia towards it

D) Feeling sad when you are about to leave

Following that logic , here are some hotels in Dublin who have that power! You are welcome 🙂 🙂 🙂
