Hotels in Dublin Ireland

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.

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.
