Need bed and Breakfast or cheap Hotel in Dublin

by kunalkapoor12

I have been searching for somewhere to stay for only 2 nights. I am finding that B&Bs are very popular in Europe. As in India we don't have

Never stayed in one, so I am new to this. Do the rooms normally have a private bathroom? I don't see many listing this feature. DO we have to share bathrooms

Where do you suggest we stay? I would like to be close to the city center

The description of the room offered should tell you if there is a private bath - generally there is, but some people rent out an extra room and either the bath is shared or is outside of the room, on the hallway for instance. However, all that should be clearly indicated.

OH, ok elsewhere it generally is - Well it would be necessary to inquire with the specific host, then, if unclear...

Most reputable B&B in Ireland will have en-suite facilities (private toilet, bath/shower) particularly in the large city of Dublin.
You may like the friendly, personal service they provide.
Look for the classification of approval awarded to them by Failte Ireland. This will show you what is expected at the premises.
These classifications are clearly listed at

I have no personal recommendations to suggest, but look at www.ireland-bnb.com
and www.goireland.com.

If you prefer a more impersonal accomodation, though non less friendly, try the Travelodge chain of budget accomodation, where charges are PER ROOM, not per person. It has basic but adequate facilities. See http://travelodge.ie/pdf

Enjoy your trip!

Travel Tips for Dublin


by zone_de_guerre

While Dublin is a metropolitan city (and this is relativley new!) Dublin still harbours a deep sense of racism but none more so vulgar than that directed at the English. Irish people still have this impression that after years of English occupation that ended before most of them were born we should treat our neighbours across the water with disdain. I have seen some fights in Temple Bar with Irish people picking on British people or making snide comments. My advice is to ignore it and continue on enjoying Dublin as most Irish people, while having a chip on their shoulder with English people will never show it .

See the Book of Kells, a 9th...

by dzni

See the Book of Kells, a 9th centuty manuscript that is famous for its pictures.. ah, it's of the Gospels. Anywho, it's really tiny, but the illustrations (that you can see anyway) are wonderful. You can find it in the Old Library of Trinity College (part of the University of Dublin). It's open 7 days a week. While walking in a park, my father saw someone he knew from work, halfway across the globe! Talk about coincidence! :)

Dublin Theatre Festival

by Lochlainn

Much is made of Dublin's links with the world of theatre but compared to comparably sized European cities, it actually offers the theatre-goer less variety of choice than you might be led to believe. Having said that however, you would be unlucky indeed on a visit not to find something to grab your attention by way of dramatic entertainment. I'll outline what I consider the better venues under VT's "Nightlife" section but here I'd like to make a special mention of the annual festival, which now ranks alongside Edinburgh's for sheer craic (as well as drama). The event has had a turbulent history in recent years due to sponsorship problems and other dramatic behind-the-scenes "falling outs" that could have rivalled in narrative the invention of any dramatist, but the festival has survived nonetheless and is held around late Autumn every year. As with Edinburgh, it is often on "the fringe" that one finds the true gems, and the interaction between the thespian world and that of the drinking classes is a welcome development indeed in recent years!

Trinity College

by seagoingJLW

Visit Trinity College and see the Book of Kells

Trinity College is one of Ireland's leading historical sites. It attracts more than half a million visitors every year.

The Book of Kells is a ninth century manuscript of the Gospels. Known for its illustrations, it is on display in the Old Library in Trinity College.

Corner of Parliament and Essex Streets

by Kentbein

The entry to the Porterhouse is one short block south of Wellington Quay at the corner of Parliament and Essex Streets. The Porterhouse building takes up the entire block I believe, so it's a very short walk from Essex Bridge to the Porterhouse front door. If you're too exhausted by the time you reach the entrance, the brews inside will pick you right up!
