How important is it to stay in the central part of Dublin (Dublin 1 or 2)? I notice that a lot of the top rated hotels are farther out. How long does it take to get from an area like Ballsbridge into the center?
I'm going to be visiting for the 1st time with my sons, who are 21 and 22, so I'm trying to weigh location, budget and possibly noise. We will need either a triple or a single and a twin for 3 nights. I would like to stay around 200 euros per night if possible.
