The top 25 places we think should be on every traveler's radar this year.More
When exploring the region around Dublin, many people opt to stay in the capital and take day trips. A hotel on the Southside of the city or in South County Dublin might be a good idea if you're planning to spend time in Wicklow or East Kildare. For Meath and Louth, a hotel on the Northside or to the west of the city might work better. If you don't want to "commute" from the city, the noted
country-house hotels around Kildare and Wicklow are great options. They are a surprisingly good value given their unique, luxurious atmospheres. Bed-and-breakfasts are another good option, and though the ones in this region tend to be a little more expensive than in other parts of Ireland, they also are more stylish. Unlike in Dublin, hotel prices have not generally increased again over the last year.
