Where to stay in Dublin


Choosing a hotel in Dublin City comes down to finding a balance between price and location. The most expensive clusters of hotels are found near the tourist areas of Temple Bar (city centre) and St. Stephen's Green (a little further south). Heading away from these areas you can find hotels of similar quality for cheaper, especially as you look towards the 'less touristy' northside of the city. However, you can expect to see a rise in prices again close to Dublin Airport, to the extreme north of the city.

Here's a list of our tried and tested hotels in Dublin. Booking these hotels well in advance is advisable, especially if you are planning a visiting between April and September. It is worth avoiding dates that will coincide with a sudden influx of people to Dublin. These dates include; sold out music gigs at the 3 Arena (in the city centre) or the All Ireland Football and Hurling Finals (2 separate Sundays at the end of September annually, held at Croke Park in the City's northside).
