There are some great hotels on and around Grafton Street in Dublin city centre.
Hotels such as The Shelbourne and The Merrion are prime examples of Dublin-city-centre luxury, their restored Georgian facades housing all manner of in-room comforts and silver-service indulgences.
The nearby Clarence Hotel is a hip choice that’s notable for being owned by U2 members Bono and The Edge.
Regardless of where you stay, Dublin hotels can vary their rates hugely from month to month, sometimes even week to week.
This is largely dependent on demand, but whether you’re aiming to soak up the summer festival scene in Dublin or just sink a few pints of Guinness during winter, it’s always worth considering your options as soon as possible, comparing and booking as early as you can.
Generally, the best (and priciest) accommodation is still south of the River Liffey, although there are exceptions.
You’ll find some good three-star and four-star hotels around O’Connell Street and in the heavily revamped Docklands area. Back in the south of the city, plenty of decent hotels are located in and around the suburb of Ballsbridge, charging more competitive rates than those in the city centre.
One last money-saving tip: like many cities, Dublin turns much of its university accommodation into tourist rooms over the long holiday period. If you’re here in the summer months, it can be an attractive alternative to a cheap Dublin hotel.

There’s a lot more to the hotel scene in Dublin than long-established grande dames and trendy new-builds. If you seek a no-frills, cheap hotel in Dublin, especially bargain family hotels in Dublin, options abound across the city, including self-catering accommodation, some smart hostels, B&Bs and chain brands offering three-star basics.
Though accommodation nearer the city centre generally costs more, Dublin isn’t huge so it can be worth looking at options closer to the outskirts.
In fact, you don’t have to stay in the city at all. The countryside and mountains around Dublin have some great accommodation, not least the K Club in Straffan. This five-star golf retreat once hosted the Ryder Cup and lies just 30 minutes from the city.
