I always stay in hotels near / overlooking St. Stephen's Green. Most convenient city centre spot for everything imo: museums, transport connections, night-life, shopping...

thanks, as never been before, not sure where is best place to stay, but that sounds going to have a good look tonight and try and book then, done a bit of research on place, but still all new, should be fun!;-)

Hmmm ??
The Airport? That is the last place I would want to be staying near!
In all honesty it depends on what you are after when you are over there...
Most of us either go out for drinks or go shopping etc.... As you will see on expedia and lastminute and so on there is one particular area that everybody kind of hangs around if you like?
Having worked over there for a few years, I cn say that whilst I accept each to their own and so on.... If you look into the Jurys Inn Hotels in Dublin around the Centre, you will find some very reasonable deals. Not only that they are central to Grafton Street, and the nightlife as well.... More so its the value for money....
:-)
The Best of The Irish Luck to you too! (And don't forget to try out the Black Stuff over there - it is true what they say, it tastes nothing like what it does over here!
You can't beat a good night out in Dublin when you are in the right mood for the Likkle Tinkers!

Thanks :thumbsup: Just remembered the name of the place we stayed last time. It's pretty fancy - in a boutique kind of way - but we managed to get a good deal on a long weekend room only. It really is hard to find a better spot than this. I've stayed in dozens of Dublin hotels over the years - and although I like the original Jurys Hotel in Ballsbridge best, it's very expensive and not a touch on this location if you fancy getting straight to the heart of things from your hotel door.

We've always stayed at Durys hotels. Think there are a few in Dublin, but been a while since I last went so cant remember which one it was. (But it was in a near central location - near to the river and Grafton Street shops plus nearby Railway stations.) One of the main reasons we chose it - was because the airport bus literally stops outside (and is a cheap and fast way to get to the centre from the airport.)

Reasonable standard (4* I think) - but lookout for offers to get the rates done. We did anyway!

ive just been to dublin, stayed at "the skylon" hotel, they have a major damp problem, half the floor on the lower level was warped and if u sat in the reception area and bar, u cud smell the damp, not the most pleasant of hotels, avoid at all costs, hope u have a good time! bring lots of money dublin is expensive.

We went in April and stayed at the Fitzpatrick Castle.

It was lovely-booked through Expedia and got a great deal on the room rate.

It is out of the centre-but the dart (train) is brill,and we went in to the city centre on it in the morning, and came back at night. Its in an area called Dalkey-which was lovely with nice restaurants and is only a 5 minute walk from the station.

We went without our kids and it was great-there is a health club so we had a great relaxing time, but spent the days on the city bus tour, museums etc.

Shabby, bit noisy but you can walk to almost anywhere you might want to go. Great Indian restaurant nearby!! Agree with lou re Guinnsess Storehouse - tedious but excellent view from the top.

thanks lou, just checked that one out, was a good price, but liked the look of st stephens park area, but just a tad pricey, so may go with the central hotel, looks good to me.

We stayed at the Comfort Inn smithield last year and its very modern. It is just out of the city centre, but the Luas line (a train) picks up on the corner of the street and takes you straight into the centre for a couple of Euros. You can walk if you want, very safe and along the river liffey. If you are worried at night, take the Luas back. The hotel is around £60 a night with breakfast and is quiet if thats what you like. It is opposite the Guinness Storehouse and the Jameson Brewery, so not far to fall. Enjoy. But a ticket from either the Airport of from Ticketmaster.co.uk for the Bus. 1, 3 or 5 days pass. We got a 3 day pass for 10euro and it covers your transfers to and from the hotel (which single are 7.5euros) and all over Dublin County. You just pop the card into the reader when you board the bus...you can go all over. You need the Airlink bus 747 from the airport into Dublin City which is about 30 mins. Have a brill time.
