Here are our Top 3 star Hotel Recommendations in Dublin, as prepared by intern Mathieu.
Located in the creative and entertainment hub of Dublin's city centre, and formerly the old Jewish Quarter, Kelly's is a stylish and functional and very affordable 3 star hotel. While the rooms are mostly a little on the small side, Kelly's is an ideal choice for the intrepid traveller who intends to only sleep at their hotel. The rooms are clean and modern with excellent showers, white linens and breakfast in served in the attached Le Guelleton restaurant each morning. Bring earplugs with you however as the hotel is also attached to the No Name bar, an excellent place to rub shoulders with Dublin's thirtysomethings and fortysomethings as they enjoy a few afterwork pints and cocktails. There are so many excellent restaurants nearby; 777, The Market Bar and Fade Street Social are all within 100 feet of the front door.

Midway between Dublin Castle and St Stephen’s Green, and only 4 minutes walk from Grafton Street the Drury Court Hotel is ideally located in the Dublin city centre.
