The Beacon HotelThe Beacon Hotel is a trendy 88-room boutique that is a breath of hip, fresh air in the Dublin hotel scene. The location is not within walking distance of Dublin’s tourist spots — but it’s close to the tram (LUAS), making it easy enough to reach the city center, and parking is free. Hotel features include the Crystal Bar for cocktails, My Thai restaurant, a beer garden, and free Wi-Fi.
Here's a dish that—overshadowed by its better-known curried cousin, Thai deep-fried curried fish cakes—isn't offered very often at stateside Thai restaurants. Good thing they can be made at home very easily.
