Finding a good place to sleep in Dublin, Ireland wasn’t fun. You’ve got plenty of options but the prices were close to those in London, England. And I dislike paying a fortune just for a short night in a hotel. Therefore I decided to book the Parkway Guesthouse, a bed & breakfast in the north of the city – not far away from O’Connell street (upper). That was a good and a bad decision at the same time.
Even this B&B wasn’t cheap (or didn’t feel prizeworthy), but it is located quite nice: it was an easy walk to the city centre and as my day tours started early in the morning at the Dublin City Gallery and O’Connell street I could reach them easily. But the room was very small, WiFi was unstable, the bed was slanting (I never had that before) and there was no elevator (which isn’t so nice which much luggage). But the nice hosts make you feel like at home!
The surrounding area is non-touristy (which I like) – if you need breakfast there is a tiny coffee bar called Koffee+Kale on the other side of the street. A Spar supermarket can be found on Dorset street not far away. In the end, you have everything that you need in this location!
