Subject: Re: Dublin in April
Hi Diane, I donīt know exactly what happens, because it is the weekend after Easter Sunday. The only thing I can imagine is that there might be a match of the Six Nation Cup (rugby) or some hurling or gaelic football match. Of course, you should know that during weekends Dublin is really popular with british weekenders (plenty of hen nights and stag partys ... awful). I might be able to find out, by asking my friends there. Anyway, last year I was quite lucky when trying to book at the last moment through the following site, belonging to the Dublin Tourist Office. You can book for up to 8 adults. I donīt know how many people there are in your party, but you might give it a try.

My friends have spoken quite OK of the Bewleys Hotel in Fleet Street. It is quite new, near Temple Bar.
