Staycity or Grafton Capital? Location/noise? June 9th 4night

Have narrowed down choices to Staycity (we like to shop local markets) or Grafton Capital? A little worried about some posts about noise at night from Disco near Grafton. I am a very light sleeper even with earplugs. Teenagers could sleep through anything. Mainly, I want an area where the 22 and 17 year old can go walkabout by themselves at night. Good prices for both- mid-range.

Stay City, I'm assuming you are talking about the apartments near Usher St/ Oliver Bond Street?? If so, I would stay in the Grafton Capital hotel.

Yup. they are the same. Don't know if it has changed since i lived in Dublin, but Oliver Bond St isn't somewhere where I would feel particularly safe.

Yes, I looked into Molesworth Court. I just do not know if it is worth twice as much as Grafton Capital lodgings? If the Molesworth area is substantially better for the kids to walk about at night then that would be worth it for the double price.

That being the case, I'd book this one.

Pouring through posts and then looked on Trivago and found these. Blooms, and Grafton close in price and Trinity Capital and Molesworth close in price. Which area for safe night walks for young adults.

The Grafton Capital Hotel is in a great location. We stayed there and the hotel is okay. I scoped out the Drury Court Hotel which is in the same great location and felt it would have been a nicer stay for a similar price.
