Where to Stay in Dublin
Reasonably-priced boutique hotels with great locations are hard to come by in any city which is why this is such an excellent Dublin find.

Number 31 Dublin

Cost: ~ $250 per night
The Times Hostel
The Times Hostel on College Street is one of Dublin’s most popular hostel locations, probably due in most part to its excellent location which is within easy reach of Trinity College, Temple Bar, and Grafton Street.

A beautiful 4-star hotel located in the city centre with easy access to popular sights and public transportation. Rooms are bright and clean and a full traditional Irish breakfast is included with the price.

The Samuel Hotel
A lovely hotel on the north bank of the River Liffey with spacious rooms and a traditional Irish breakfast of bacon, sausage, eggs, potatoes, soda bread, pudding, and more. A word of caution about the soda bread – you’ll want to eat a lot of it. Slathered with the best butter you’ve ever tasted.

Westport Plaza Hotel
The Westport Plaza Hotel was in the perfect location for a charming after-dinner stroll. I also loved the large soaker tub in my room which I took advantage of both nights we were there.

This 4-star hotel features airy and bright rooms just outside the city centre but close to the main shopping centre. The Maldron Hotel is particularly good if you’re driving as it’s slightly away from the centre of town and offers free parking.
