Dublin: Hotel Recommendation

I will be visiting my Son who will be studying in Dublin this Fall. Looking for any recommendations for a hotel in the city center. Looking for something not too expensive.

Hi, my husband and I just got back from Ireland. We spent 4 nights in the Albany House hotel in Dublin. It is in the city--just south of St. Stephens Green. It is a small hotel--includes breakfast. It is a Rick Steve's recommend--and moderately priced. I thought was in a great location--quiet, clean. Everything is walking distance. I would go back there again, and have been recommending it to friends! Check it out in Rick's book, or go online to their website! Karen

Last September we stayed at Buswell's Hotel which was mentioned in Rick's book. It was outstanding -- great customer service, food and very close to everything. We'll be going back next year and staying there again. I also recommended it to a friend this spring and they loved it as well.

Happy Travels!

I am staying at the Albany house hotel right now. We quote like it, clean, well equipped, modern bathroom, comfy bed etc. We love the location. Five minutes to busy noisey areas but not in them.
So request room in back ,they are quieter.
Simple breakfast included, just yogurt,fruit salad( fresh not tinned) cheeses,breads/buns cereal,tea/coffee , we like it after having eaten too many "fry ups " in London! Lol

I recently stayed in Dublin before my Ireland tour. I stayed at a place called the Portobello B&B. It was fantastic and very affordable. The breakfast was wonderful and the owners were helpful and happy to sit and chat with you. The 16 bus stops right at the door and cost only 3.80 Euros from the airport. Easy and fast walk to the city center.

I second the positive thoughts about Buswells Hotel! I have stayed there each time during my past two visits, and will be staying there again when I visit Dublin in October. It's in the center of everything, yet on the (safer, probably quieter) south side of the River Liffey. Easy walking distance to many things, plus the hotel is a true European hotel rather than an Americanized one. Beautiful lobby, nice rooms, great breakfast, wonderful bar for a drink or snack.
