What area to stay in

Hi Everyone

I plan on staying in Dublin for a couple of days late March. I will be travelling on my own and plan to do a few of the day trips that leave from the tourist centre. Can anyone suggest where I should stay if I need to get to the tourist centre early morning, but dont want to stay with all the young crowd around the temple bar area? I dont want to be in a hotel that has a loud nightclub downstairs until all hours of the night - but dont want to be so far out of town that it is a pain to get to the pick up point early in the mornings for the day tours.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

Have a look at Bewleys in Ballsbridge www.bewleyshotels.com

I think the location is excellent,easy access to the city with transport by bus right outside the door & the DART a short 5 min walk away.

thanks mary - I wasnt sure how easy it was to get in and out of town - especially when travelling alone and having no idea where you are going ! I will certainly check out your suggestion,

Many Thanks :)

Hi Kaz

Brookes Hotel and Buswells Hotel both in the City Centre but not in Temple Bar are often recommended for people with requirements similar to yours, as too are the O'Callaghan Hotels.

thanks so much dubfam - I'd rather stay in town if possible so I dont need to be getting buses in and out every day - so I will look into the ones you have suggested

cheers

I love Buswells! I overslept on a Saturday because it was so quiet. I am use to hearing the kegs rolling down the streets at 6 am.

I recently stayed six nights at the O'Callaghan Mont Clare just off Merrion Square. You couldn't get a more central location and if you hunt the Internet you can get it pretty cheap (i paid less than 50euros a night minus breakfast but would be willing to pay more). Its 3 stars but very high quality. The area is very safe at night and I slept really well, despite being on the street side.

This hotel is about 300 yds from the Suffolk Street/St.Andrews Street tourist office.

I am bookmarking Trinity, very close to Buswells so know that is a great area.

Great prices and the Suffolk St tourist office is fab
