That"s plenty of time to get to the card room.  Also, there"s no rule in Ireland that you have to be sat down for the first hand being dealt.  So if you are 30 minutes or so late - no big deal (pardon the pun). 

I"m just bringing hand luggage, so I don"t have to check anything into the hold, and plan to go straight to the card room tonight before the hostel I"m staying at.  I"m sure they"d allow you to put your luggage in the cloakroom (can anyone confirm this)?

If you are looking for cheap accommodation, the hostels look very good and are less expensive than many of the hotels I looked at.  We"re staying at the Jacobs Inn Plus - you can book online, just Google it if you"re interested.

I don't know about where to stay but you can get an airbus for 10 euros which takes about 3o mins into Dublin city

I will be getting on the 9.10 from Leeds which gets to Dublin at 10

I don't know about Sunday since I have not got that far yet but I think its about 25-30

Stopping at Stauntons on the green, St stephens green

If you want to meet at 10.15 / 10.30 let me know  

If you Google hotels in Dublin I am sure you will find some where but it can be a bit pricey you ideally need some were in Dublin1 or 2
