So after the ridiculous amount of rain we have had these last few days we thought we'd remind you of how beautiful Dublin is when the suns shining.

Pádraig Pearse (also known as Patrick or Pádraic) 10 November 1879 – 3 May 1916. Pearse was an Irish poet, teacher, barrister, writer, nationalist and political activist. Following his execution for his leading role in the Rising, Pearse became seen as the embodiment of the rebellion. Pearse's brother Willie was also executed for his role in the Rising. Pearse welcomed the commitment from the British government to Irish Home Rule in 1912. He addressed the Home Rule rally in Irish and warned ''Let the English understand that if we are again betrayed, there shall be red war throughout Ireland." Pearse was chosen by Thomas Clarke (leading IRB man and elder of the seven) to be the spokesperson of the Rising and it was Pearse who read the proclamation aloud outside the General Post Office. After 6 days of fighting, it was Pearse who issued the call to surrender. Pearse was executed in Kilmainham Gaol by firing squad.

Seán Mac Diarmada (Mac Dermott) 27 January 1883 - 12 May 1916. An Irish political activist and revolutionary leader. He helped to organise the rising as a member of the Military Committee of The Irish Brotherhood. Although he afflicted polio in 1911 and needed a walking stick he was a very popular leader of the IRB. At a speech in Tralee he claimed “The Irish patriotic spirit will die forever unless a blood sacrifice is made in the next few years.” MacDiarmada was executed on May 12 in Kilmainham Gaol by firing squad.

Thomas Clarke (March 11 1858 - May 3 1916)

An Irish revolutionary leader and arguably the person most responsible for the Easter Rising. He spent 15 years in English prisons prior to 1916. He was the oldest of the seven signatories aged 59 and was the first signatory of the Proclamation of Independence. In a collection of his prison writings released in 1922 a quote from him read ''Clinch your teeth and never say die. Keep your thoughts off yourself all you can''. He was killed by firing squad in Kilmainham Gaol.

James Connolly 5 June 1868 – 12 May 1916


Connolly was a republican and socialist leader. He opposed conscription and flew the banner, we serve neither King nor Kaiser, but Ireland, outside Liberty Hall. He apparently heavily influenced the wording of the Proclamation. He was executed for his leading role in the Rising. Although so badly injured from the fighting during the Rising that doctors said he would die within days, he was sentenced to death and executed while sitting on a chair in Kilmainham Gaol courtyard. His death caused controversy not just in Ireland but in The United States and even the British condemned his brutal execution.

It is said that during the fighting in the South Dublin Union Éamonn Ceannt remained calm and brave at a position his men held until learning of the surrender on Sunday. He faced the firing-squad at Kilmainham Gaol on May 8, 1916.

Joseph Mary Plunkett (21 November 1887 - 4 May 1916) Nationalist, poet, journalist and a leader of the 1916 Rising. A gifted writer, Plunkett was to become close friends with Thomas McDonagh, another of the seven signators of the Proclamation. He married a sister in law of McDonagh, Grace Gifford just hours before he was executed in Kilmainham Gaol, in what was one of the most poignant stories of the struggle for Irish Freedom. Just before he faced the firing squad, on May 4, 1916, he said: “I am very happy I am dying for the glory of God and the honour of Ireland.''

Thomas McDonagh (1 February 1878 - 3 May 1916) political activist, poet, playwright, educationalist and revolutionary leader. McDonagh was a commandant of the Irish Volunteers that fought in Jacobs Biscuit factory. Although a military leader he was only a late addition as one of the leaders of the Rising. MacDonagh believed Irish freedom would be achieved by what he called “zealous martyrs”, hopefully through peace but, if necessary, by war.He was executed by firing squad in Kilmainham Gaol for his part in the Rising.

Probably just ok. I did not think it was cosy. Some hostel I've been had this feeling of home away from home where you can relax after a long day spent travelling or sightseeing but not this one. Cramped common room an very hot second common room in the basement.. I stayed on the third floor which was a pain. There is no reading light on the beds, no curtains and no internet in the room. So if you want to relax you have to stay in the common room with the TV on and the music and the kids drinking etc I don't mind all of this but it is not a wow experience. Just good to crash and sleep after a long day. Oh and the window is straight above the railways track so don't forget plugs and eye mask...

Pros: 1) Friendly, helpful, approachable staff 2) Lots of areas to socialize (including a downstairs area with lots of couches) 3) in city centre (which means you are in close walking distance to every pub, grocery store, and general retail store imaginable) 4) Sauna! (Not exactly the warmest country and it was wonderful to have this amenity during the winter) Cons: 1) Poor WiFi (only available downstairs and in the lobby (and with varying quality). It's 2016; people have basic technological expectations. 2) The cleaning staff has no qualms with banging against your bed while cleaning (I stayed two weeks so I am not speaking about an isolated incident).

Decent quality hostel at an affordable price. Bathrooms are separate and are not en suite. Free WiFi and light breakfast available at the hostel. Decent amenities, most of which you wouldn't find in a hostel this small. Good location close to the city center, and close to all services, amenities, grocery stores and shops. It is though located underneath a railway line that can get loud sometimes, but it's nothing unbearable, and thankfully the trains don't run during the night.

This hostel was great. The staff was very friendly and we kept discovering more and more things to do inside the hostel - game room, sauna, etc. The only complaint I would have is few plugs in the rooms. - but that's the hostel life for ya. Also, we wanted to sit in the lobby and hang out with two new Irish friends but they wouldn't let them inside with us because they weren't staying there. Besides that, it was a pretty good experience.

Great place for a quick stay over , my wife and I booked for one night the first night we landed in Dublin and it was exactly what we needed. Comfortable, secure , friendly and good location. I would definitely stay again if I was on a budgeted trip. They have a 24 hour staff desk and also Internet, wifi and breakfast in the morning ( toast , cereal , juice and coffee )

Great layout and friendly staff. The building itself is laid out very well, with a social area in the entrance lobby at reception, and sofas, a TV, a reading area, book exchange, study area, sauna and a ping pong table downstairs, all very cosy. It's good value for money and there's a kitchen with most things you'd need, although they could do with getting a microwave. The key card system is very annoying - mine stopped working now and then, and I would be locked out of my room or out of the stairwell - but I suppose that means it's good security, even if guests are locked out sometimes as well. Some of the rooms are also very close to the railway line which is noisy at night. Overall an excellent stay though. You can find out about attractions and events from the posters and leaflets at reception, and they arrange pub crawls and walking tours that leave from he hostel.
