Question Accommodation in Dublin?

Anyone got any good accomodation recommendations in Dublin.

Going on a cheap girlie w/e and looking for cheap places to stay.

Will be going back with other half and be looking at slightly nicer places to stay so anyone got any experiences/advice?

One to avoid, Isaacs Hostel in Dublin. Although cheap enough, and it's in a great location for getting around the city, there's a couple of reasons I'd advise against it.

It's right beside the train station (part of the same building, ISTR) and we barely got any sleep for the three nights we stayed. I suppose if you're used to city noise it might not be such an issue.

Unfortunately (at the time) there were some problems with theft of property, so be careful. Several people had stuff taken though we were ok.

I stayed in a b&b when I went over for a family wedding, can't remember the name of it, but I'll call my dad tomorrow and get the details.

Try www.laterooms.com then use www.tripadvisor.com to check out the real reviews of any hotels you're looking at.

There's a Jury's Inn at both Christchurch and Parnell St, which are both fairly central - if my memory serves me correctly, the one at Christchurch is the nicer of the two but I could, Ah Say, I could be wrong.

Thanks for the help, now I don't need to go to Dublin, as the London date has been annouced. Just got to get tickets for Hyde Park.
