Almost everyone who travels to Ireland passes through Dublin, and the vast majority of them stay in a bed and breakfast (bed and breakfast), in a hostel (hostel) or in a cheap hotel in the Irish capital. And no wonder since Dublin, apart from being a vibrant and dynamic city that will offer you culture and lots of fun, it is the perfect starting point to start your route around the island. Well, I'm going to propose an alternative option: stay at Howth.
Howth It is a small peninsula located just 10 km north of the center of Dublin. It is very well connected and will offer you a rustic and quiet atmosphere, landscapes that will leave you with your mouth open and a variety of pubs that will certainly not leave you dry. For me, Howth is the ideal setting for you to live an experience really irish Without getting too far from the city.
In Howth you will find several options to get accommodation. I know one how many and of them I will recommend two:
- Ann's Bed & Breakfast: Very clean and perfectly located in front of the sea. 10 minutes walk from the train station and right next to The Pier House. The breakfast is very complete and of the highest quality. The price of the double room ranges from 80 euros. They have few rooms so I recommend you call ahead to make your reservation. Their owners, A Y JonathanThey are a very friendly and helpful marriage that will help you prepare your getaways in Ireland with their advice and recommendations.
- The Bailey Court Hotel: If you don't fancy such a home and family atmosphere and prefer the coldness and anonymity of a hotel, The Bailey Court It is a perfect choice. Not much more expensive than a bed and breakfast Traditional with prices ranging from 120 euros per double room, it is very well located in the center of town, a few meters from the church and surrounded by pubs and restaurants. You will arrive at the port in 5 minutes walking and to the train station in 10. Clean and with good service it is an elegant hotel, with good breakfasts and with a bar and restaurant in case you feel like spending a quiet day without much hustle and bustle.
My advice is that when preparing accommodation in Dublin Do not hesitate to consider Howth as a good alternative.
