Where to Stay Saint Patrick’s Day in Dublin

Great Last Minute Accommodation in Dublin

Time to dust off your green t-shirt and leprechaun hat! Saint Patrick’s Day fever will be gripping the globe next week with parades, celebrations and iconic buildings going green throughout the globe to mark Ireland’s national day.

Buy your ticket to Dublin and get packing! Where better to shake your shillelagh, bang your bodhran or show off your shamrock than on the old sod itself. Dublin does Saint Patrick’s Day bigger than anywhere else in Ireland and has a festival with four days of action.

The festival attracts visitors from every corner of the world so hotels across the city will be booked out! But don’t worry, The Dublin Visitor Centre can recommend three alternative locations for last-minute bookers planning to head over for the world’s biggest party.

Irish people are renowned for their hospitality and friendliness so why not stay with one? www.homestay.ie is a host family booking website with hundreds of Dublin families listed. Book a room for a few days or a week, become part of the family and get the inside scoop on all things Dublin, most importantly, get in on all the St. Patrick’s Day fun! Most host families live in the city’s suburbs which are easily accessible by bus, rail or taxi! For visiting families, many host families have 1-2 rooms available and you may even find a family with kids of a similar age to your own. Making a homestay the perfect budget option for a last minute family break in Dublin this St. Patrick’s Day.

Expand your horizons!

With easily accessible suburbs and coastal villages, you can commute in no time. Book a hotel or guest house further out of the city centre area – try Bray, Malahide or Glasnevin. Look for guesthouses close to Dublin’s LUAS (Tram) or DART (Suburban rail) lines. Stay in one of the many Victorian guesthouses near Glasnevin Cemetery and if you book a city tour with Big Bus Tours Dublin using the tour bus as your very own personal taxi! In the suburbs, you’ll enjoy the benefits of great accommodation at a reasonable rate, and access to a side of Dublin you otherwise might miss and most importantly you get to be in Dublin to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2019.

Perhaps you’re happy to share a room or sleep on a sofa? If so, Airbnb is a great site to search for short stay accommodation (from spare rooms to a complete house) listed by locals.  A homestay can include breakfast and dinner with the family, but each Airbnb letting is individual, allowing you to find something that suits your own tastes and needs.  There too are loads of options and reviews by past guests help guarantee you’ll have a great stay.

For more information say hello to the Dublin Visitor Centre team via Facebook, we would be more than happy to help you make that tough decision!
