Delegates at SHARP 2012 will be responsible for booking their own accommodation in Dublin. A recent survey showed that Dublin has the cheapest room rates of European capital cities, so whatever your budget you will find something to suit you within walking distance of Trinity.
There are plenty of bargains to be had at the moment. We are not in a position to recommend individual hotels/hostels/B&Bs but the sites below will provide you with everything you need:
www.discoverireland.ie – the official website for the Irish Tourist Board. Through the ‘Where to Stay’ navigation tab you can choose ‘Dublin’ and then ‘Dublin City’ to find accommodation near Trinity.
www.visitdublin.com – the official online tourist office for Dublin. Through the ‘Accommodation’ navigation tab you can choose ‘Dublin City Centre’ to find accommodation near Trinity.
Two commercial sites which may be of interest are www.travelocity.com and www.lastminute.com.
New to the City?
Dublin City Centre is compact and easy to navigate by foot or public transport. This link provides you with detailed maps of the campus at Trinity College Dublin and Dublin City Centre. You will also find information on how to get to and from the airport.
One general tip; if at all possible do try to stay within the city centre. You will be able to tell if accommodation is in the city centre from the post code; anything in Dublin 1 or Dublin 2 will be within a few minutes walk of Trinity. Odd postcode numbers are on the north side of the River Liffey, even postcode numbers are on the south side of the River Liffey. The higher the postcode number, the further away from the city centre your accommodation will be.
