Crazy About Travel

A step back in time and holidays for the ages

Remembering occasions previous

This will date me, but I had some of the most effective nights I can try to remember (and some that I cannot) at Bartley Dunnes. The great pub was generally an experience, and when it was demolished in 1990 to make way for Split for the Border, my gelled-up hair wilted with sorrow.

Now the most up-to-date incarnation, The Grafton, harks back again to even earlier instances, with a 1920s influenced vibe, together with art deco touches, and a décor that tends in direction of glitzy enjoyment. Family rooms involve bunk beds – however you don’t have to be relatives to bunk in collectively. Rooms are from €140, and get a even further 15 for every cent off the most effective obtainable charge for 3 evening stays.

Indicator of the situations

I don’t know if it’s alarmingly prescient, or merely a indication of the periods, but the 1920s are acquiring a real design and style minute. The design of the submit-pandemic (back again then it was the “Spanish flu” that had wreaked havoc), amongst-the-wars era is also driving the Arthaus Lodge on Dublin’s Mercer Avenue, a 41-mattress boutique place developed and peppered with artwork that celebrates the Bauhaus and its contemporaries. 

Bauhaus teacher Annie Albers reported “art is something that makes you breathe with a distinct kind of happiness”. See if its your type with B&B and evening meal from €116.50pps.
