It’s cheap to travel to Dublin during low season periods such as February to April and October to early December. Hostels, bed and breakfast and hotels are in greater demand over the Christmas and New Year festive season and summer months and prices in hotels rise accordingly.
Choose spring or autumn for the best deal and you’ll enjoy a city that is every bit as beautiful but less crowded. You can count on a certain standard of accommodation and it will often exceed your expectations. You might find that you’re placed in a luxury hotel for much less or that you have a comfortable and spacious room in one of the clean, well-organized hostels or motel style accommodation close to the airport.
You can find a cheap deal by booking in advance or at the last minute.
International travelers unite
Making reservations as a group can lower the price of airport accommodation. Students might find that hostels offer group rates while families and friends can choose family rooms in hotels.
Hostels often allow guests to store bikes or other equipment and there are lots of open spaces for outdoor enthusiasts close to Dublin International Airport. There are several golf courses nearby and the coast is within easy reach of DUB airport accommodations.
Select the right deal
Look around for a deal in Dublin that is aimed at your age group or traveler type. Students and business visitors will often find cheap accommodation that is specifically advertised as ‘student friendly’ or ‘welcomes business guests’.
Families can choose hotels that offer inclusive packages while over 50s might benefit from an age-group based deal. Book international flights and accommodation separately to find a deal on travel as well as hotels.
Public transport links from Dublin airport hotels make it easy to explore famous sights like the Temple Bar, O2 theatre, or Dublin’s many colleges, churches, and landmarks. Plus you’ll have more left over to shop in the terminal for everything from electronics to essentials when you choose budget friendly airport accommodation.
It can be busy in the city esp. during major events such as the Dublin Marathon and during St Patrick’s Day Festival.
When staying for a couple more days you can take a day trip from Dublin as well.
