Hi. I'll be in Dublin in the first weekend of december. I'm looking for a budget accommodation. Does anyone have a suggestion? (I need a private double room ensuite and most budget accomodation I saw only had dorms.)

If you have a suggestion for a really nice moderatly priced hotel, please tell me too. Who knows?

Hey Aline

What is your budget?

You can get good deals with JURYSbut l would also recommend looking on the likes of TRAVELOCITY or EXPEDIAwhere you may likely get a bargain.

If it is closer to the time of your visit why not check LAST MINUTE and see if you can grab a bargain!

Thank you, guys. Unforntunatly Avalon House does not have more rooms available. Neither many of the hostels. The only one I could find a double room was O'Neills. Does anybody knows it? I looked at Jurys, but it's still expensive for me.

Have anyone stayed at Dergvale Hotel?

Is there something going on on the first weekend of december? Why are there so many places booked out?

Thanks again!

weekends in Dublin are a Hen Party Hell, thats might be why its booked up. Where is O'Neills?

Did you try the Brewery Hostel? Near...err..the Guinness Brewery? They came thru for me and 7 friends last minute, earlier this year.

But honestly, I dont think you will find a private double room ensuite with only 2 weeks to go in a hostel. Your best with a cheap hotel or BNB.

Thank you all, again. I think I got a nice deal on visitdublin website for waterloo house, which seems a good B&B on Dublin 4. I hope it's not too far away from everything.

Now that I have where to sleep, does anyone have any suggestions of what I should do
. I have 3 days. Should I stay only in Dublin or should I go somewhere nearby. Usually, I like to take a peak at small cities or beautiful scenaries. It only would have to be close so I can come back on the same day.

Glad you found good accommodation in Dublin's accommodation maze.
Try coming straight to Travellerspoint next Dublin visit.

We stayed at Botanic View B&B a few years ago. It was very nice, the breakfasts were huge, and it was a short bus ride to the city centre.

Dang! Just noticed how old this thread is. Hope this may help someone anyway!
