That's funny. I'm jealous!
Just booked Maldron Parnell Square -- did the "Advance Pay" option for €271 a night, July 21 and 22.
I'll need to forego eating, paying bills, etc., but at least I found a place to stay.
We are in the Maldron Smithfield. While getting our flights/hotel, they said that Dublin is over 90% booked. Maybe a scare tactic but it worked. Spending a week and a half in Ireland. A dream trip for sure! Deciding which brother to sell to pay for this trip.
