I have read the other contributors and they are spot on. There are two O'Callaghan hotels that are fine and well located; the Alexander Hotel and the Mont Clare. Alexander is a little more expensive and better. Had I the money then a stay at the Shelbourne would be in order. It is an iconic hotel in the City and was recently the subject of a fly on the wall documentary that showed the character of the hotel and the staff. Dublin is not that big and basing yourself anywhere near the Museum will allow you access to many attractions, restaurants, and pubs.
