Hi ClarkeeLDN

You would all probably enjoy staying in the Temple Bar area. I think a lot of clubs in Dublin have an over 21 policy though - somebody with a bit more up to date experience would be able to fill you in, my clubbing days are but a happy memory at the moment!

Lots of bars & clubs are 21 & over, they check ID strictly. A hostel around Temple Bar area would prob suit you but I'd recommend a google search to find out about the age restrictions for bars around the area. Maybe have a read of reviews on Hostelworld.com

Stay in a hostel in the city, if there's a big group you can get a room to yourselves.

Take a trip out to the wright venue on a Friday, I think its only over 18s on Fridays.. Its out in Airside, in swords. (There not that strict anyways on id on Fridays if it is over 21s)

Play nightclub on d'olier is 18's and always has promos so drink is cheaper than most places.. ( only been there a few times but was always a great night)

I prefer the wright venue though..

Club M in temple bar is only open on weekends and is over 19s. That's good too..

So is palace nightclub.. I'm not sure if that is 21s and over but its huge and the music is great..(its a tad expensive I think)

Have a great trip..

Sorry I cant help with accommodation.. I live in Dublin so don't need acc.. Just taxis :)

I haven't stayed here myself, but I doknowof a few who have stayedinthe Generator. It's in Smithfield so you are only a stroll across the Liffey from Temple Bar if that's where you wanna hang out!


And the reviews...
