Considering week in Dublin for trad music; apartment/hotel location advice?

Jump to last reply

We are considering lots of options as final spring break trip with daughter, but timing is really odd for our cycling trips. Earliest date to leave US is March 8; must be back March 17. So we are back to "week in city" type trip.

We all have lovely memories of Ireland from three cycling trips there, but we have never done Dublin. Hence this post. We are considering indulging ourselves in a week of trad music, especially since said daughter can now drink (Coke Zero gets old after a bit).

We are location, location, location people in selecting hotels. When in Paris for first trips, we were in 6th close to Notre Dame. When in Rome, near the Pantheon. You get the drift. An apartment rental would be great--but it would have to be city center or really convenient to city center because...

...we also would like to avoid renting a car (mass transportation or on-foot freaks).

OK--I placed my constraints. I hope someone can advise us. Thanks ahead for any help (and yeah, I know I owe last Paris Thankgiving report).
