This trip to Dublin is the perfect quick getaway for anybody wanting some time away from home, taking just over an hour to get there. Known for its vibrant nightlife as well as its romantic nature, it’s hard to think of an excuse not to go when it’s only £68 on expedia.co.uk!
Leaving on 19/10/2014, Ryanair will take you to Dublin for a 4 night city break. Once at the airport you will need to make your way into the city centre, the easiest and cheapest way of doing this is a 35 minute Bus Ride, only £2 pp. Once there the possibilities are endless. I would recommend one of the walking tours available so that you can get to know your surroundings a bit better. If you’re not up for a tour, however, the Generator Hostel is only a fifteen minute walk away from Temple Bar where there is a different pub for every day of the week and a restaurant for every meal.
Outside of exploring the city, you will have plenty to keep you busy with various options to keep everybody entertained. Ranging from the Guinness Brewery to the beautiful grounds of St. Stephen’s Green to Trinity College Dublin; the city is your oyster. If you would like to experience more of Ireland’s rural landscape, then an easy option is to visit the the North Bull Island where you will have the opportunity to play golf or to walk around the island admiring the wildlife and embracing the serene atmosphere. It’s also easy to get to, either by taxi for £12 or by public transport (the Luas + a bus).
The hostel you will be staying in is the 2-star Generator Hostel Dublin, which has also received a Certificate of Excellence for 2014 (82% on TripAdvisor). This price of this trip is based on you staying in an 8 bed mixed dormitory. There is, however, the option to choose a different type of room for a little bit extra. This hostel does not conform to the general idea of a hostel. It has a modern design and is very comfortable considering the cost of staying there. This is definitely not a trip to be sniffed at!
