hotel room for 3: north of the liffey? south of the liffey?...for the life of me...I cant decide!

Jump to last reply

ok back to the drawing board: let's try staying right in the centre of dublin for our last night
I have looked at reviews but i just cant imagine the atmosphere of the actual locales

basically, im thinking that we ( daughter and I) need to be able to walk to a lively interesting area...maybe grab some last minute souvenirs (although i bet theyre more expensive in the heart of dublin)
OH may or may not feel inclined to join us..he wouldve been driving us from galway that day so he may be tired..girls get easy second wind when there are shops about
but we do want to just literally step out and be somewhere central without catching buses or trains
ive looked at places round the park ..st stephens green i think it is called...but i doubt my daughter and i would cross a park at night..unless this is something that everyone does on a winters night ( we wouldnt in sydney)

ive read that the area south of the liffey river is better for accommodation...cleaner neater districts
but i need to hear it from someone who is actually familiar with the lie of the land..
central...yet not too noisy (pub noise could be a problem on a saturday night)

budget? seeing there're three of us ill expect to pay more and i dont really want to stay in a hostel unless it is absolutely fabulous...ive been booking hotels for around the $300 AUD ( 280 USD approx) mark so far in the UK and France...dont really want to go much more over that if i can help it

if you havent actually stayed in any of the central hotels but remember a good location then that would help too
thanking you!
