When in Dublin, you’ll want to party hard like the Irish, but still have a decent place to crash in and nurse your hangover the morning after. Here’s a list of Dublin hotels where you can stay.
Barnacles Temple Bar House has good dorms with private bathrooms, as well as in-room, storage space for your gear – a rare gem for this backpacker’s home away from home. Barnacles offers bed and breakfast, as well as hot water for showers; the hostel is always busy, because of its prime location in Temple Bar.
When school’s out, Trinity College rents out the dorm rooms at budget rates for Dublin travellers. The rooms are either spacious, single study rooms, or double apartments with a shared lounge; these all have shower facilities and kitchenettes, while some have washbasins as well. There are newer buildings at the back of the campus that have modern 1 to 2 bed solo apartments, which include a living room and kitchenette. Room rates include breakfast, served at the main dining hall.
When at the city centre, stay at Mercer Court Campus Accommodations; owned and run by the Royal College of Surgeons, here you'll find the most luxurious student apartments.
If you’re in Christchurch, try the Kinlay House Hostel – an old boarding house for boys that has been converted into a traveller’s lodge. They have spacious, 24-bed dorms, as well as smaller private rooms. Located near Dublin Castle and Christchurch Cathedral, the place also has clean kitchens for your cooking needs, as well as a café. Room rates already include breakfast.
