Cheap hotrl in the center?

by iblatt

My 27 year old daughter and her boyfriend are going to stay in Dublin for 2 nights in May, and are looking for a cheap but clean hotel, centrally located, in a safe area to walk at night.
Any suggestions will be welcome!

The last time I was there I stayed at the St George on Parnell Square. It's not cheap/cheap but then Dublin hotels aren't. It is good value for money and the location is central, minute or two walk from the bus stop on O'Connel.

Website is: www.thecastlehotelgroup.com

Hope this helps.

I'm not sure if your daughter is interested in a hostel or not but I have stayed at these two:

Kinlay House: http://www.kinlaydublin.ie/

Oliver St. John Gogarty: http://www.gogartys.ie/

I would say that Oliver St JOhn's is slightly nicer and closer to all the action (there is a bar below it). Kinlay house caters to a little younger crowd(I was 30 at the time, 33 now). Both are in the Temple Bar district and are within walking distance of all the sights (Trinity College, bus stop to airport etc)

Thanks for all your replies and useful tips!
My daughter's hotel reservation has been made.

My wife and I are going to Galway at the same time, hope the weather in May won't be too terrible. Is it too much to ask for maybe one or two sunny days? (out of seven)...


Travel Tips for Dublin

Christchurch only, please!

by morgane1692

Yes, it's possible and even preferred really, to visit the splendid Christchurch Cathedral...WITHOUT taking part in, or spending extra euros on, Dublinia. If there were real Vikings in Dublinia, fine, that'd be worth the added dough, but you can learn anything there from a book. I think so anyway.

go to Temple Bar. Great...

by jandres

go to Temple Bar. Great places. The Quay and many other places I just can't remember as I drank to much. Lillie's Bordello is a great dance club, although it's a private club, getting in proves to be a hassel, but if you know someone you are set. The Guinness Brewery.

It's all about symmetry

by agarcia

Georgian style is the most characteristic architecture feature of Dublin. It was developed as a symbol of the relative prosperity of the city during the 18th century and its primary feature is the repetition of geometric figures such as semicircles. The repetition of patterns is, indeed, what gives the Georgian style its unique nature; that could be admire, for instance, in the beautiful (and colorful) twin doors that adorns a good number of the city buildings. Despite the repetition of elements, not two Georgian doors are exactly equal; paying attention to the details is, as usual, a worthy activity.

Driving your car...

by IrishFem

If your brave enough to hire a car in this country l take my hat off to you. Most drivers are crazy.. they don't obey the traffic lights, and always crash on amber and red..Most drivers are rude and impatient, if your in the wrong lane you will be waiting a long time for someone to let you out. Of course l can't tar all drivers but l am talking about the majority especailly in the cities. As for motorbikes, they never learned the rules of the road.. so be careful when you see one coming towards you on your side of the road... they think thats ok...Country people are a lot more polite and laid back.. We drive on the left side of the road over here..The speed limit is generally 70 miles an hour on the motorways and lower limits on small roads. If you exceed these limits the penalities are stiff and you might have to pay an on the spot fine. But don't let me put you off....why not have a hair raising experience whilst your here.. because if your waiting for a bus or a taxi you could be in the "Q" for hours...thats of course if either one turns up... Try the following sites for car rentals.. go on l dare you....Never leave anything in your car thats visible, if you do you will be paying a visit to the police station and probably have to pay that little extra for the insurance on the car. Ireland is well know for car break ins so always leave your car in a car park or on a well lit street.
