The best news in the world ladies and gentlemen……yes we have a working lift or escalator depending on where you come from..In all itâ€™s glory it hoists you from ground level all the way up to the 4th floor, Its a wonder of modern technology and its ours to share with our guests. Also this month saw the grand opening of our Barista coffee corner which serves a range of delicious coffees and muffins and other delectable treats to feast upon. Rob is now sort of our newest member to the Avalon family. Heâ€™s happy chatting to the foreigners and enjoys it so far as I can tell. Oh he also makes a mean hot chocolate!! The opening ceremony of the lift went ahead this week with our longest residents making the occasion truly magnificent, red ribbons and all were involved and Iâ€™ll be putting pictures up as soon as I get them so do not fret, you will have proof that it is real. Our ickle spanish hombre, Carolina ..Amor has returned also to the Avalon after possibly the longest holiday ever know to man, but Iâ€™m positive she had aÂ good time considering she came back with the best tan ever…us pale skinned Irish can only glare on in amazement and wish for the day we see 3 months of constant sun. We will just have to settle for some rain and a lush greenness, a green greener than green I was told once.. which is un-rivaled throughout the world.! So come and see all for yourself at Dublinâ€™s most famous hostel.
