We are staying at a Bewley's Hotel in the area of Ballsbridge. The hotel is in a great location and is a short bus ride to the city center. We noticed it was an older building which had been beautifully repurposed, and after investigating, found it had been a female orphan school built by the Masonic Order in the 1800s. The grounds and the hotel are really beautiful. The prior hall is now being used as a wedding venue. For more about the history, see http://www.bewleyshotels.com/ballsbridge/history. It has a great restaurant, friendly staff, free wi-fi, and we will forever be grateful that they found us a room at 9:00 am when check in time is much later! Bewley's is a chain with six hotels in the U.K.
