    Default Good hotel in Dublin needed for 2 months!

    Hi all

    I'm set to start a contract in Dublin at the beginning of May and will need a hotel/bed&breakfast.

    Being a typical contractor I'll need to have free wifi in the room, ideally en-suite and it should be friendly and comfortable as I need to stay there for 2 months (plus)

    Anybody got any good tips?

    Any links/hotel names greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    Robert

    Lived in Dublin for 3 years, but can't recommend any hotels.

    What I would say is there are loads of internet cafes in Dublin city centre, so if you only really need the web for a couple of hours at night, you can get it easily outside a hotel for much cheaper

    Food recommendation - Siam Thai on St Andrew Street!

    Does it have to be in Dublin ?

    Could you look a bit further out and get the dart in/out everyday ?

    No idea. Apart from what i can see on google maps, I know nothing about Dublin at the moment...

    Will check out the dart and costs, etc.

    If that's ok, do you have any recommendations?
    What do you mean - "not worth listening to"?! I just don't talk much, that's all

    Bray by the sea is nice and about 30 mins on the dart - Mr P's lot come from there.
    I'm sorry, but I'll make no apologies for this

    I stayed at this hotel for a weekend in 2005 and would definitely recommend it. The centre is within reasonable waliking distance and it is also close to some good bars by the canal.

    WHS. Its a nice walk along the canal and about a 15 min walk to St Stephens green/Grafton Street.

    I was working in Lower Baggott street for 6 months and the Client would not provide an apartment (despite originally agreeing to it) which would have been cheaper. A problem with apartments in Dublin is they are expensive and reluctant to do lets less than 12 months.

    I stayed at the Mespil and it was good. After a while they got to know me so I got upgraded rooms, express checkin and preferential treatment as a result.

    Its also very handy for drop off points to/from the airport which is handy.

    In general I would certainly not hesitate to stay there again.
