I was surprised how expensive hotels are in Dublin. If you’re looking for a place to stay around Dublin city center, expect to pay $250+ per night. That’s just the starting point for hotel pricing, the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel was $400/night…if you used cash. […]

Dublin Airport (DUB) is absolute chaos. From arriving to departing, it’s an airport I’ll definitely avoid in the future when possible.
