For budget minded visitors your best bet is to stay in a cheap Dublin hotel. Forego the fancy plush interiors and spend the extra savings on a nice meal, a few pints or an entrance fee to a cultural attraction.
By going for a cheaper, more basic option staying in a budget hotel you can afford to reward yourself with an extra night in the city or splurge on a shopping spree.
All hotels in Ireland are closely monitored by the tourist board and reviewed by the hotel federation so you don't have to sacrifice cleanliness or comfort even by opting for a 2 or 3 star.
If you stay just outside the city centre or even a few streets away the prices often drop so it is worth checking the location of your budget hotel. Also, check what is included in your room, as their might be hidden extra's like parking fees or costs for breakfast.
Transport and taxi fares can add up so make sure you easily catch a bus, luas(tram), or Dart (metro)to the city centre from your chosen Dublin hotel.
