I have stayed in...

I have stayed in Globetrotters,Lwr Gardiner Street,Dublin.
For a bed it is about £13,a full irish breakfast is also included for each night you stay.It was nice

This was a nice hostel,we had a bathroom ensuite( not sure if this is the case for all rooms) and it was reasonably priced.It also had a very central location.

Well, my best friend and I...

Well, my best friend and I stayed at a B & B in Dublin some 15 years ago on our pub hop through Europe. We asked a passerby to take a picture of us and the B & B. This is the actual photo we got when we got back to the states! That's me on the right
:-)
Cheap but nice for two young, adventerous travelers.

Nice people at the B & B.

Please be careful when picking your hotel in Dublin!

Make sure that you are away from the train station, and try to find out whether the hotel is in the middle of being renovated!
Most hotels are competative with their prices, so my advice is 'shop around!'.

Georgian House

Georgian House

This Georgian townhouse hotel is conveniently located and very attractive. With most of the sights easily accessible and St. Stephen's Green just around the corner, it makes a great base from which to discover Dublin. Its four floors house thirty rooms, which, despite being on the small size, are pleasant and well-equipped. A double will set you back IEP72-IEP140 with an additional service charge of 10%. If you don't like stairs, request a ground-floor room as there is no lift.

Longfield's: Longfield's

We had to stay at this rather expensive place because everywhere else was full. We really ran the staff around because of this crisis and they were great. The only complaint I have is that when we arrive late at night rather dazed from running around to two hospital trying to find my dad, they told us to park on the street, but neglected to mention that we would be booted in the morning. And then they only would pay half the fine to get it off! But we really did run them around, and my aunt fell on their doorstep and had to have the doctor called, so I can forgive this.

Morehampton House: Morehampton House

About 10 IEP for a dorm bed.

A big, clean, safe and friendly hostel without curfew. Ten minutes from O'Connell Square. I especially liked their kitchen with a microwave, lots of space and a terrace outside.

I stayed at the Waterloo Lodge off Lower Baggot Street and had a nice time. Rooms are with private bath and the Irish breakfasts are huge, fills you up until well into the day.
Reasonably priced hotel

49, North Strand Road: Luckily gone...

Luckily the hostel @ 49, North Strand Road isn't existant anymore. What a strange place... a night in an almost private room (only disturbed by a really old lady) cost us
4 IEP in 1990. What a bargain! And what a place! Even though it was dodgy and everything I have some great memories of the place and we met some really nice people here (including the owner who tought us Irish swearwords and everything ;)

The only hostel I ever stayed in that had 3 storey bunk beds!!!! On the pic you can see me 'in' my lovely bed, I slept in the lowest one (=floor!) What a comfort...

Highfield B&B: A B&B in Howth

I stayed in this B&B on Howth hill, close to Howth summit, in summer 2001. It's a friendly place in a beautiful house and the price is ok as well (€ 32.00 - € 35.00 per person sharing)

It's cheaper and nicer to stay in Howth (approx. 30 mts north of Dublin by bus) than in the traffic of Dublin city centre I think. The B&B was in a lovely and huge old house with large rooms and from our window we could see the sea (as usual ;-)

For the budget minded...

For the budget minded traveler, fear not! I found some really good hostels + bed and breakfast joints during my time in Dublin.

Most of the hostels and Bed & Breakfast joints can be found along O'Connell Street (see pic below). 'Tis an extremely busy street.... and it can get quite dangerous at night (some sections of this area). If you value a more tranquil setting, I'd suggest that you choose bed & breakfast joints in the Ballsbridge area. My office has a branch in Ballsbridge so I had the opportunity to explore this part of Dublin. Nice and quiet area. Definitely non-threatening i.e. no muggers.

Alot of Dubliners have told me that The Ariel Guest House is definitely Dublin’s finest Bed & Breakfast place. So, you may wish to take note of this. This centrally located immaculate Victorian mansion was built sometime in the 1800s for a wealthy merchant. Quiet luxury and elegant decor can be found in the 28 en suite rooms and what's more, a full Irish breakfast is served in the Victorian dining room. I'm beginning to fall in love with this place just by hearing about it!

That's me at the grand lobby on my way to work in the early morning. I'm usually in the office by 8am after an extra-early morning hearty Irish breakfast!
