Where to stay in Dublin

Here at Hundredrooms, we want you to feel completely at home at your Dublin self catering apartment while you’re discovering the city with the perfect proximity to everything worth seeing. For this, we have decided to discard the overcrowded hotels in Dublin, and instead compare the best apartments from our partners such as Airbnb Dublin, Booking Dublin, HomeAway, TripAdvisor and much more to find you the best holiday let at the best price. Grab a city map at the airport or train station so that you know exactly how to reach your temporary accommodation. Some people might prefer to stay in hostels in Dublin, particularly younger crowds. However, the best alternative for a group of friends is to share city centre accommodation in Dublin, where you can be comfortable without spending a lot of money. If you stay near the Christchurch Cathedral, you will be close to some of the best bakeries in the city. We particularly recommend II Valentino and Queen of Tarts which are the perfect locations to have breakfast or simply to satisfy your appetite in the afternoon. The first offers delicious homemade cakes, and the second a carrot cake and apple crumble to die for. Tripadvisor is the best for recommending the best restaurants in the city. These include Mulberry Garden, Dax Restaurant and Bloom Brasserie. In the area south of the River Liffey, you have plenty of accommodation at your fingertips. Around Fitzwilliam PL, you will find plenty of safe streets and shops where you can get everything you need. Here you are also close to Dicey’s Club which is a popular spot for young people at night. If you’re wanting to experience more of the traditional bar culture in the city, you should consider the Temple Bar district, which is a group of cobbled streets that form the hub of Dublin’s nightlife while also being a popular location during the day.

What to do in Dublin

Dublin is packed to the rafters with things to do, and something to suit all ages and tastes. Whether you’re mingling with the locals, learning a ditty or two, or enjoying the local Guinness, you’re sure to find something to enjoy yourself. If you find the perfect flat to rent in Dublin, you can explore the city at any point. Dublin is only small and Ireland is a beautiful country beyond, so if you’re looking for a cottage to rent in Dublin instead, we recommend going to the outskirts of the city to enjoy the beautiful countryside.

  • Guinness Storehouse: No trip to this city is complete without a visit to the factory where Ireland’s most famous beer was created, the Guinness stout. Beginning on the ground floor, you will find the bottom of the largest pint glass in the world! On the upper levels you can discover how the dark beer is made, and how it is in keeping with the history of the city. The best thing about visiting is that the tour ends in the Gravity Bar, which is a pub in the highest part of the building where you can taste a free pint and enjoy the views over the city.
  • Temple Bar: The Temple Bar has a history of over 160 years, and is one of the most visited attractions in the city. The neighbourhood in which it is situated is amazing and is full of nooks and crannies worth exploring. It is an area alive with atmosphere and the perfect spot for a weekend pint.
  • Dublin Castle: You must visit this historic castle which was once the home of the British monarchy. Although the castle is officially 900 years the facade is from the 1800s. It is open to the public, but if you want to visit you should try to get a ticket in advance as it is often used for State dinners.
  • Trinity College Dublin: If you’re going to Dublin for the weekend, you must make time to visit the Trinity College campus. It is the oldest and most prestigious university in Ireland, and is right in the city centre. The library inside is particularly spectacular and is one of the most beautiful libraries in Europe.
  • Kilmainham Prison: For those seeking history of Ireland’s divided past, something worth seeing is the prison. It was inaugurated in 1796 to arrest and execute prisoners, in particular leaders of independence revolts during the Troubles. Today it is a museum and is a must see for a part of the city’s history.
  • Ha'Penny Bridge: On any map of the city, you will see the numerous bridges crossing the river. One of the most famous is this one, a beautiful white bridge that gets its name from an old toll that boats had to pay to cross into the city. The bridge contrasts the Samuel Beckett Bridge which was designed by Calatrava and is considerably more contemporary. It is known for its characteristic harp shape, one of the national symbols of Ireland.
  • Phoenix Park: For a peaceful stroll in the city, this park is perfect, and there are deer to be seen up close!
  • O’Connell Street: This is the main artery of the city, and in it you will find numerous restaurants and shops to spend the afternoon. It is most recognisable for the famous monument, the Spire which is 120m high.
  • Grafton Street: This is the main shopping street in the city.
  • Molly Malone Statue: You might know it... the song goes a little something like this: 'in Dublin's fair city, where girls are so pretty...' This is one of the most popular songs in Ireland and is called 'Cockles and Mussels'. Having since become the unofficial anthem of the nation, there is a wonderful statue dedicated to the memory of 'sweet Molly Malone' on Suffolk Street.
  • Jameson Distillery Bow St:This is the official whiskey tourist attraction located off Smithfield Square.
  • Dublinia:This is a museum about the Viking and Medieval history of the city.
  • National Leprechaun Museum: It is widely known that Ireland is the home of the leprechaun, and here you can find out all about Irish folklore and mythology, with stories galore.
  • GAA Museum:A museum to explore the Ireland's sporting heritage, in particular hurling and Gaelic football.
  • James Joyce Tower and Museum: This is a Martello tower in Sandycove where James Joyce spent six nights in 1904, and is the famous setting for his opening scenes of Ulysses. A must see for any fans of literature.

Flights to Dublin and transport in the city

If you're planning to travel to this city for your trip and stay in a Dublin apartment, it is easily reachable by plane or ferry, and flights are very cheap from major cities such as London. Flights to Dublin Airport are fairly cheap from most major destinations. If you wish, you can catch the ferry from Holyhead or Liverpool. If you're using the city as a base to explore the rest of Ireland, we recommend using the car hire at the airport and exploring this way. Otherwise, Dublin is a largely pedestrian-friendly city and so to see the best sights, it is recommended that you walk from your city centre accommodation.
