Brookville Guest House: Family run B&B in Dublin

Brookville Guest House is a family run B&B in the Blackrock area of Dublin, roughly 25 mins away from Dublin City Centre. We booked the B&B after long deliberation of whether we should stay in a hotel or a guest house, we decided on the guest house and we are so glad that we did because the service was fantastic and we felt very welcome. The Guest house is fairly large, there is the main building which has a full kitchen and lounge area which can be used by anyone at any time. There is also a spa room equipped with a large hot tub and sauna. Then there is another "house" which is where I stayed. Each room was fitted with a TV and DVD player (You could select any DVD from the lounge, there were 100s), there was a fridge and a microwave, complimentary still and fizzy mineral water, tea (variety of green, herbal, fruit and regular) coffee and biscuits. There was also a hair dryer, an iron with a board and shampoo, conditioner, body wash and moisturiser. Breakfast is added to your bill but we didn't stay for breakfast, although it looked pretty good! The cost for the room for for the two nights was £170 without breakfast.

The Guest House is opposite a bus stop which takes you directly into Dublin Centre and offers free parking which was a god send as we had hired a car.

Maldron hotel cardiff lane: maldron - cardiff lane

The Maldron is a chain hotel, but it does an efficient if uninspiring job.
Rooms are standard four star, the breakfast just what you would expect at this level and the view...well that's the lowpoint...unless you like a dirty car park and a skip.

Pleasant pool. Large enough to get some proper exercise. God I hate those four-star places that advertise a pool, photograph it to look like it goes on to infinity and in reality is barely bigger than a bath. So no complaints from me.

The bar also made an effort by employing a pretty reasonable singer on the saturday night we were there.

Located opposite the Grand Canal theatre (or as it is now called the ' Bord gais waste of taxpayers money in naming rights theatre...or something like that).

Oacklodge Bed and Breakfast: Sleep Victorian

Our stay at Oaklodge B&B have been truly fantastic!
The house is in a Victorian neighbor very well connected to the center by bus and to the Airport by the Aircoach service that run 24 hour a day and stop in front of the Hampton Hotel, 5 minutes walking from the bed and breakfast.
The area is very quiet and we felt completely safe at every time of the day.
The room was very big, comfortable and clean with a private bathroom that looks like it have been renovated recently.
Teresa, the owner is a friendly and helpful lady and she cooked us some wonderful and huge Irish breakfast that set us for the day.

Lynham's Hotel: Acceptable rooms, great price/location in Dublin

We stayed three nights in June 2010. This is a small hotel right in the thick of things on O'Connell Street, within a stone's throw of the Spire. This is a low cost, no frills hotel. The rooms are not fancy or large, but I thought they were acceptable and clean. The price (about half what other hotels in the vicinity cost) and the location are the best features. I thought the front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

I could not get the Wi-Fi to work on my devices, but could make do with what was available at a public library in the nearby ILac shopping center (roughly behind the hotel, off Henry Street between Dunnes and Debenhams department stores, across from Arnotts department store, open 10-2000 M-Thur, 10-1700 Fri-Sat). If I come to Dublin again, I will certainly consider staying at this hotel.

Oliver St. John Gogarty: Great Hostel Location but bring earplugs!

Oliver St John Gogarty is a lively hostel in the heart of the Temple Bar district of Dublin. It is within walking distance of all the major sights such as Trinity College and is also within walking distance of the bus stop to get to and from the airport. I would reccomend bringing earplug though because when I say lively, I mean lively. It is surrounded by Pubs and can get quite loud, especially on the weekends.

Rooms are twin, 4, 6, 8 and 10 bed dorms all with private ensuite. One thing that is kind of odd about this place is that there is only one key to the room. So, the room key has to be left at the front desk. However, each bed has it's own lockable cupboard so don't forget a lock.

The location can't be beat, only a few short steps to some of the liveliest bars in Dublin.

Maldron Hotel Cardiff Lane: Great Hotel in the Docklands

We stayed in the hotel for five nights and had received a packaged that included free breakfast every morning in the restaurant onsite. We were really pleased with everything about our hotel. The room was a great size and very clean and the staff were all friendly and extremely helpful. Though it wasn't located directly in the center of everything, we didn't mind having to walk a little bit to get into the heart of everything.
Breakfast surprised us as it was really fantastic! It was a full hot buffet and we were able to fill ourselves up every morning. If you're able to get a package with free breakfast, definitely do it since normally breakfast is 15 euro. One thing to keep in mind, if you are staying on a weekend try and get there between 8 and 8:30 or else it gets really busy and depending on when you show up you might have to wait for fresh food. We found the earlier we got there the better.
We also visited the hotel bar a couple of times. The beer was only slightly cheaper than visiting any other pub in the city, but the staff were friendly and we would stop here at night before heading out for drinks.
Only small complaint we had was that the pillows weren't that comfortable, but it didn't really make for a bad experience and overall we were really happy with everything!

Aaron Court Guest House: Very cosy guesthouse in a big private house

The guests had all possible hotel level facilities and services available, even this was a guest house accommodation. They would have organised even car hire and tours if wanted. All the rooms were en-suite, meaning every room had own bathroom.

The guesthouse was not in the heart of Dublin city, but it was handy and cheap to take one of the several buses to the city centre. This is a great place for those who respect peace and silence, and don't want to live in the middle of the city and noise; yet anyhow being able to reach the city whenever they want to.

I like private accommodation, pensions and guest houses a lot, as in those one gets the best touch to local life and local people.

The Ballsbridge area is a very safe and extremely peaceful, stylish residential area with some business and embassy activities too around. The room itself was spacious and comfortable. The house was big and nice, a big living room and breakfast room was in guests' use.

The breakfast! Not for someone who wants to eat healthy food...or perhaps, but I recommend asking for it beforehand. The price included full Irish breakfast, which is very heavy, greasy and the portions are not small (sausages, meatballs, grilled or fried tomatoes, mushrooms, toast with butter, fried eggs...).
I liked the way of serving the breakfast for everyone around one big table and not in several small separate tables. It was nice to talk with other people coming from all parts of the world.

Comfort Inn Citywest: Great Hotel - But Out of town

I had a very nice stay at the hotel, but the next time I get to Dublin again, I will chose a hotel closer to the town! It took me 40 minutes each morning to get to the center!
The area the hotel is situated in, is not great either. There´s nothing to do or eat, so when we arrived in the evening, we had to order from a pizzaria 20 minutes away.
HOWEVER the hotel is very nice! It´s really a luxury hotel for lesser money, and the rooms are very clean and tidy. The staff was very friendly and all in all our stay in the hotel was excellent, although it was situated to far out.

The rooms are great. You get tv, internet acces, cd player, coffee maker, towels, hair dryer, iron board etc.

Marian Guesthouse: Budget Accommodation in a Great Location!

This Guesthouse is owned by a married couple and is combined of two Georgian houses in the proximity of O'Connells Street. Upper Gardiner street is supposed to be located in a deprived area but it is no shanty town!
The accommodation itself is a bit shabby, but very clean and a bargain. The meals where nice, with a variety to choose from (a cook was taking orders while we were seated in a large dining area), the rooms were ok - the paint needed some refreshening and the bed was a bit unstable, but it was clean, and despite my first impression I enjoyed my stay in there. You have to make sure to keep it tidy yourself though as there is no cleaning while you are checked in (but if you need fresh towels or anything be sure to ask the owners!).

I found thin Guesthouse online while I was looking or budget accommodation to stay in Dublin for Easter. The most important factors was its price and location, fairly cheap - 40 euros pp for an esuite, and in central Dublin right next to Mountjoy Square and only 15 minutes walk from the Spire at O'Connells!
Also the owners where quite nice (a nice suprise since they were a bit drunk during our checking in), they even let us leave our luggage when we check out at 11 am and let us take it in the evening when we were heading to the airport.
Overall I would say - if you can't afford a hotel in the city centre, try out Marian Guesthouse.

Howth: Dublin Accomodation

Cheap decent rooms in Dublin are quite hard to come by. There are a number of cheap Bed and Breakfasts around Talbot Street,Lower Gardiner Street and Store Street. The North Star Hotel in nearby Amiens Street is more upmarket and has deals sometimes like 2 Nights Bed & Full Irish Breakfast and 1 Table d'hote Dinner From 99 Euro per person sharing Available Midweek Sunday to Thursday. My own preference would be to stay somewhere like Howth which can be easily accessed from the centre by DART (Dublin Metro) and bus. See http://www.dublintourist.com/directory/accommodation/bed_and_breakfast/north_county/howth/ The prices are lower in Howth and the views are magnificent.

Daft.ie: Site for Short/Long-Term Accomodation

If you want to stay in an apartment which is usually cheaper than hotels, look on the site that lists lots of apartments for shor-term.

http://www.daft.ie/shortterm.

On the same site, you can find long term accomodation, as well.
