Citywest Hotel

Just a big shout out to the Citywest Hotel who displayed fantastic customer service to me recently. I was staying there for a wedding and I had to iron a white shirt. Some gobshite staying in the room before us had ironed something that left some sort of black material all over the iron which then melted onto and into the material of my shirt. I don't blame the hotel for this, it was the guest who stayed previously who didn't inform them when it happened.
I called reception and they had somebody take the shirt away to dryclean it. However, this was not successful and they subsequently refunded me in full for the shirt and sent a letter of apology. Fantastic!

La Clique

I went to see La Clique at the Dublin Fringe Festival last night. What an awesome spectacle of contortion, feats of acrobatic strength and balance and comedy wrapped in one.

The highlights of the show for me were Michael Angelo, the possibly Eastern European crooner who entertained us with his penchant for poetic song and his irresistible personality as well as Mario Queen of the Circus, a Queen singing juggler and Frodo the Rubber Man from Norway, the man with the many double joints. Finally a mention for the men in suits, I should say no more but their performance was incredible.

If you get a chance to see it in Dublin or elsewhere, then do.
