Where to Stay in Dublin

Kelley’s Hotel

Dublin, Ireland

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. Kelly’s Hotel is situated in one of the city’s trendiest areas, The Creative Quarter, so-called because of its close proximity to Dublin’s coolest restaurants, bars, and boutiques

Cost: $250+ per night

Number 31 Dublin

Dublin, Ireland

Suzy Guese, a travel writer from Denver, Colorado visited Dublin recently and told me about Number 31 Dublin. This charming B&B/guesthouse is located in a former architect’s house and the building itself is considered to be one of Dublin’s hidden architectural gems.

Cost: ~ $250 per night

The Times Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

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.

Cost: $35+ per night, depending on room type

Gibson Hotel

Point Square, Dublin, Ireland

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.

Cost: $300+ per night including breakfast

The Samuel Hotel

Dublin, Ireland

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. 

Cost: $200+ per night including breakfast

Where to Stay in Ireland

Westport Plaza Hotel

Westport, Ireland

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. 

Cost: $125+ per night

Maldron Hotel Sandy Road

Galway, Ireland

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.

Cost: $150 per night
