February 28, 2007
Had an amazing weekend in Dublin a couple of weeks ago. I can’t believe it has taken me so long to get around to writing about it – have been a busy girl!
The Camden Court Hotel was lovely and was reasonably priced considering it included use of the spa facilities – pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi etc and a yummy fried breakfast each morning.
On the Friday night we went to Luigi Malones restaurant which was delicious. Had Chinese Parcels for starter and for main had Steak Fajitas – really nice although I think they overdid it on the garlic! Would definitely recommend it though!
On Saturday we did all the Dublin sights – Grafton St, Trinity College, bridge over the Liffey, O’Connell St, Ha’Penny Bridge, Temple Bar, St Stephens Green – was a lovey sunny weekend too so could sit out in St Stephens Green with a coffee from Butlers Chocolate Café – (really nice Caramel Macchaitto) and watch the world go by – quite relaxing considering it was a hen weekend! On the afternoon we went and chilled out in the hotel spa in preparation for the main event – the Saturday night out.
On the Saturday night we went to the actual Temple Bar – obviously the main stop for all tourists so it was rammed and full of trashy hens and stags! We left there and went to… erm, some other bars – I don’t recall the names! Was good fun though! There are more photos in the Hen Weekend gallery
Sunday we just did the spa and then went into Dublin again. Everyone was a bit worse for wear from the following night so we all just headed to another lovely coffee shop (again can’t remember the name…)
Anyways, as you can tell the weekend is now a bit hazy in my mind (partly because it was a little while ago and partly because it was a hen weekend!) I will have to take another trip back there soon to refresh my memory!
