10 Best Hotels in Dublin

Loved by Guests Collection in Dublin

The best hotels in Dublin are a good mix of international chains in palace-like buildings, as well as locally run Victorian townhouses spread throughout the downtown area. While the city’s core is big on luxury and boutique hotels, some of the most popular Dublin hotels fall into the ‘affordable’ category with budget choices in Ballymount.

Most of the great hotels in Dublin reflect the city’s charming village-like feel (despite being an Irish capital) with beautiful architecture alongside medieval castles and cathedrals as well as a cool network of cobbled streets. Getting around Dublin is a breeze thanks to the DART coastal train, an extensive bus network, and the Luas tram system.
