Myself and Hilary went to see Aerosmith in Marley Park on Tuesday night.Â The concert was pretty good but not enough of the older stuff for my liking.Â Still, it did give us the excuse to spend 2 days in Dublin shopping and revisiting our old haunts:
We stayed in La Stampa Hotel on Dawson St.Â We’d been there previously when it was an extremely good (and expensive) restaurant so it was interesting to see how it’s changed.Â There’s only 26 rooms which are accessed from a lift at the back of the bar but the rooms were beautifully furnished with eastern furniture, lamps, vases and bedclothes.Â It’s part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, along with the Brooks Hotel in Dublin but I haven’t heard great things about the Brooks.Â I got a room through CentralR for â‚¬145 which was pretty good considering the central location.Â Highly recommended to anyone staying in the city.
The two days in Dublin were absolutely brilliant but I’m glad we’re not still living there.Â Lovely to visit though.
