Hotels in Dublin

Hotels in Dublin provide cozy accommodations in a locale nicknamed “The Fair City”. Known for its friendly inhabitants, its Nobel prize winning writers, its cathedrals, its pubs, its food, its museums, its parks and its live music, Dublin was built by Vikings and derives from the Gaelic word “dubh linn”. Meaning “black pool”, dubh linn is a reference to the Poddle Stream’s breaching of the River Liffey, which formed a deep pool near Dublin Castle. Dublin’s most influential author was James Joyce, while its most well known poet was William Butler Yeats. Born in Dublin was another great poet and playwright, Oscar Wilde. When travelling to Dublin, keep in mind that the Irish are quite sociable and may engage in conversation. Slang words include “jacks”, which means toilet,  “go ‘way outta that”, which translates to stop that, “ask me bollocks”, or f-off, “bleedin’ banjaxed”, or wrecked, “state da ya”, or you are an idiot and “ger-yup-ow-ra-da”, also an f-off. Hotels in Dublin are about is exciting to think about as are its slang words. Before we get to hotels in Dublin, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.

Since prehistoric times, the area around Dublin Bay has been inhabited by humans. In about 500 BC, the Celts arrived in Ireland. In 841, the Vikings had settled in an area that is now known as Wood Quay. It is thought that prior to the Vikings, Christian ecclesiasticals had established a settlement known as “Duibhlinn”. The Irish government has recognised the year 988 as the year in which Ireland was settled. Vikings controlled the area until 1169, when the Anglo-Norman invasion of Ireland ultimately led to a takeover by King Henry II, a watershed moment that would solidify England’s political and military involvement in the area for over 800 years.

Dublin, the capital and largest city in Ireland, sits on Ireland’s eastern coast and has a population of around 1.1 million people. Known as “Dubliners”, Dublin’s people are some of the friendliest anywhere. The city’s climate is considered maritime, with mild to warm summers and cool winters. The sunniest months are May and June, while the wettest month is October. Probably the best time to visit Dublin is between June and September, when temperatures average in the mid-60s degrees Fahrenheit. Points of interest include Dublin CastleTrinity CollegeHa’Penny BridgeSt. Patrick’s Cathedral and Guinness Brewery. Popular Dublin foods include Irish stew, Coddle, which typically involves sausage, potatoes and other various ingredients, Boxty Pancakes, Colcannon, which is a type of mashed potatoes mixed with cabbage or kale, black and white pudding, soda bread and Barmbrack, which is a type of raisin bread associated with Halloween. Drinks vary and typically involve whiskey, Irish cream, cider or Guinness. Now that we have some background information, it’s time for hotels in Dublin that will offer an incredible experience.

  1. Beautiful rooms! The look like they’re worth the price. Great views from what I can see. I’m guessing the neighborhood is good too. I can’t wait to earn enough money for these rooms! Great post, and I wish you all the luck you need and deserve! But where’s your About Me page?

    1. Hi Buffy and thanks for the comment! Hope you earn and travel lots. Will consider your question but it’s all about the penthouses here!

  2. I must say that this article is very helpful and informative. Dublin is one of the best places in the world and I often travel there. These houses look fascinating and very attractive but I don’t know are they really for my budget. Anyway, I would like to visit these apartments when I go there.

    1. Hi Daniel and thanks for the comment! Many penthouses have multiple bedrooms, so if you ever are traveling in a group then you might find them more in your budget than you think. Happy travels 🙂

  3. Those are some very attractive penthouses. Excuse my ignorance, but I never quite pictured Ireland like this. When I thought of Ireland, I always pictured rolling hills and vast green valleys. 

    Anyways, I know there’s so much more to Ireland than the little I have heard. 

    These penthouse were made with one thing in mind, and that’s to impress. There’s no denying that they capture the attention. 

    1. Thank you Jose! They really are impressive and you’re right, most think of lush green when they think of Ireland. Glad you found value in the post and happy travels to you!

  4. Thanks for this interesting post.  Makes me want to hop on a plane and head over right now. If I only had the money to do so. 

    I would really like, someday, to visit some of the old countries of Europe and the British Isles, Ireland included, as they hold so much of our ancient history. and were quite influential in the growth of North America, not to mention other parts of the world.  Ireland would be a great place to start such a tour.  

    Your suggestions for accommodations are very appealing and, I see there is no shortage of places to see and places to eat as well as getting to know the locals and the culture.  I would especially like to tour and walk the countryside as I like the wide open spaces and views from the hilltops.

    I couldn’t see the cost of these accommodations as you have to register first.  Do you have any idea what the average cost of renting one of these spots would be?

    Again, an interesting post,

    Wayne

    1. Hi Wayne, thanks for commenting! Penthouses are a great and affordable way to travel, especially when traveling with family or friends as they have multiple bedrooms usually and you can split the cost. Like many things, booking/renting is based on demand, but pricing usually ranges from a couple hundred to a thousand per night, depending on time of year, nearness to traveling, demand, etc. Hope that helps and thanks for stopping by!

  5. These penthouses are gorgeous. We are planning a trip to Ireland. It is on our bucket list. I like the River view Lazer Lane, but it looks like the 4 Coppinger Row penthouse his better located for a vacation. 

    I looked at the pricing. It’s not bad for three couples. But sadly it is all booked up. What is your second recommendation? 

    Thank you for this beautiful site and helping me with a second idea. 

  6. My husband and I have been DREAMING about a trip to Ireland for the last 4 years, but alas it hasn’t really been in the cards for us until now. I’m so excited to start planning this trip. I haven’t thought about staying in a penthouse before, but I really love the sounds of the Riverview Penthouse. It looks incredible!

  7. My friends have just travelled to Ireland and Scotland and I wish I had seen this post sooner as I would have referred them to this post.

    They went to Jamieson’s distillery and would have loved to stay close to it but it wasn’t to be this time.

    I am sharing your link again with my travelling friends as I love going on holiday when I visit here

    You share the best and I love the best- Thank you

  8. Dublin is a major city that I have not been to in Europe, but it is one that I intend on stopping by and spending some time over the next year or so. I have been fortunate enough to hit most of the major cities, and this is one that I consider to be worthy of a trip.

    The options that you have listed all look acceptable and are not that expensive (I took the time to compare a regular hotel cost with these) and most definitely now that I am aware of the many penthouse options that there are I am tapping into as I travel.

    Some of our ancestors migrated from Ireland to the USA so it will give me a chance to look back at how the landscape looked where they came from while also getting a taste of a nice medium-sized major city that has a multitude of entertainment options. The Smithfield House is my preference, but if it is not available, any of the others will do. Thanks!

  9. Wow. I didn’t think they were such beautiful places in Dublin, Ireland. In April I will go to Dublin through a work experience and I even looking for places where I could stay. Reading your article I realized that my favorite is the Coppinger Row Penthouse. We go in a group of 10 people and I think this penthouse is perfect. I can’t wait to show my colleagues this location. A big advantage is that the price of $ 795 per night is very cheap considering we are so many people. Thanks a lot for this opportunity. Good luck! 

  10. Many thanks to you for sharing such an excellent article with us .I love traveling a lot so I went to Dublin last December .I found this city very suitable for travel and interesting .You mentioned through your article some wonderful hotels in which I landed at Herbert Park Hotel .Everything about this hotel attracted me a lot because it has restaurants, air conditioning, light colors, large windows, TVs, parks views, 24-hour room service menu, etc. Especially the landscaping that attracted me the most, but overall, the hotel seemed very good to me .

    Finally recaptured your article for the future because I have a desire to go back to this city and experience something new.

  11. Although I have not visited Dublin before, the way you took the city, spelling out the best time to visit and the temperature of 60oF, alongside the history of the city and her not too large population makes me feel Dublin will great a place to visit.
    Also from the various cost, I can see an average cost of 85 USD. Hotelling is quite cheap and affordable. Sure Dublin will be a beautiful place to visit

    1. Parameter great catch in seeing that hotels in Dublin Ireland here have an average cost of 85 USD. Definitely a beautiful place to visit

  12. This blog is very helpful, since I love traveling, and do not know very little or next to none concerning these places, as long as you continue to post blog like this I’ll be visiting your site often. it is very informative and have beautiful images as well, do continue to post blogs like these, thank for the info.

  13. Hey, I enjoy a lot while reading your guide on Hotels in Dublin Ireland and found it very useful for me. As I know Dublin, the capital and largest Irish city, sits on Ireland’s eastern coast.  Your collection of hotels are also awesome for everyone. If I got a chance to visit Dublin. I will stay in Herbert Park Hotel or The Smithfield Penthouse. You have done a grate work for all by sharing such useful hotels.

    1. Parveen glad to hear that you found these hotels in Dublin Ireland to your liking and that you like Herbert Park Hotel and The Smithfield Penthouse in particular!

  14. I have not yet traveled to Dublin or Ireland but have heard wonderful stories from friends who have visited in the past 10 years. As much as I love modern decor and style, I think it would feel more authentic to stay in one of the places that seems to have more local character like The Merchant House in the building from 1720! Thanks for sharing these great rental properties in Dublin!
