PLACES TO STAY IN DUBLIN
25 January, 2018 18:04
Hiya everyone

Believe it or not but haven't ever been to Dublin ( missed last year's game v Munster after having a knee replacement). Can anyone recommend places to stay which are popular with Sarries fans. Have been looking online and have found that many hotels to pick from so cannot decide where to pick. The transport network looks really good so even if not staying in centre it does not look to take long to get there.

Any suggestions would be gladly received. Looking at doing Good Friday and returning on Easter Monday now it looks like the drinking ban may be lifted

Cheers 🍻

I stayed there over new years eve when hotel prices were elevated but there were some really good options on Airbnb for a reasonable price if you don´t mind being in an apartment (I personally prefer it but appreciate a lot of people prefer hotels).

Chief in peace

When we went over for the Leinster game we stayed at Cassidy's Hotel on Cavendish Row - near Parnell Square. Has its own bar and restaurant but also close to a couple of good cafe's on O-Connell Street that do a decent brakfast. A few decent pubs around and not too far to the main pubs in the city centre. Airport bus stop is 100 yards away.

Enjoy the trip and good luck to all!

Personally I would base myself on the south side of the city, either in D4 or D2 as then you are either in or very close to the centre. For a nice spot only 2 stops on the luas or 10/15 min walk from st Stephen's green, try the Hilton at charlemont. From here you can also walk along the canal to Lansdowne road.

Travelodge, Phoenix Park - reasonably priced compared to city centre.
Frequent train service to city centre from adjacent station, abt 10 min travel time - last train back from Connolly Stn 23.17.(20.52 Sunday) Hopefully Easter won't cause any travel disruption.

I used to stay at the Red Cow interchange when I did a lot of work in Dublin. Its on the end of the line of the laus and much cheaper than city centre

For those few who like to eat, this place is a must for a celebratory dinner. Very close to the Aviva.

Dunno about popular with Sarries fans, but the Ashling is lovely if you book one of the swanky rooms at the front. Tram stop right outside. Airport bus just over the road at Heuston Station. Dublin's best pub (Ryan's) a hundred yards away.

When we went for the Munster match the Ashling was full so we stayed at the Croke Park Hotel (yes, really!). Not the greatest location (unless you have a thing about concrete stadia and crap-filled canals) but a nice enough modern hotel and quite good value for central Dublin. One of Dublin's best Italian restaurants (da Mimmo, booking essential) is a short walk along the canal (not that I'd fancy the towpath walk after dark).

JoG is right, there is much better value to be had half-an-hour out along the LUAS red line.

We stayed at Ballsbridge hotel on two occassions which is 5 min walk from ground and 25 min walk into centre. Hotel claims to be 4 star and prices reflect that. Popular because of its location it normally gets very busy on match day and great atmosphere there.

We're doing a smash-and-grab too, £56 at the airport Premier Inn. Been to Dublin so many times, bored with it, would rather be in Snorbens with its vastly superior pubbage. Did think about a day trip, but decided that a few post-match drinkies would be in order to celebrate our famous win!

Likewise, filthy cheap flight to Stansted on Monday morning effectively pays for the overnight compared to coming back Sunday night.
