My husband and I will be in Dublin for 2 nights in mid-October 2014 with our 4 year old daughter. We arrive at 7:00 a.m. on an overseas flight, so we are hoping for a hotel that could offer early check in so we can nap for a few hours on arrival. Might we have more luck with a larger hotel? We'd like to stay within a 20-30 minute walk of the central sites. We'll need a room with a one or two Queen beds or one King bed.
I've identified a couple of good prospects but both are in the 140 - 160 Euro range. Is it realistic to think we might find something closer to the 100 - 120 Euro range? Any suggestions? I've already checked out all the options in the thread on mid-range hotels.
We fly out of Dublin at 8:30 a.m. on October 25. Normally, I'd want to stay in the city-centre for our last night, but I am thinking we might book an airport hotel as they're cheaper and we'll likely turn in by 8:30 p.m. anyway for our daughter's sake.
Any suggestions for a family-friendly hotel in the city centre in the under 120 Euro range, and a good airport hotel option for a family?
