Beat the Euro in Ireland: Book a night at a university

“I’ve gone the B&B route on other trips to Ireland, but I’m a big fan of university lodging when it comes to visiting larger cities and needing to keep to a budget. I think a lot of older travelers hear the word “university” and automatically think it’s a place full of young backpackers and they will be sharing a bathroom with 20 other tourists. Not true…Queen’s University in Belfast and Trinity College in Dublin are great examples of places that offer spacious, clean rooms with private bathrooms. Easy access to public transit, on-site laundry and internet facilities and a full Irish breakfast every day for a fraction of what you’d pay at a hotel make university lodging a terrific option.” — shared by Fodor’s member Ceidleh
