Book for two nights or more at Paddy's Palace Dublin and we'll take you on a free bus tour to Glendalough, where Braveheart & PS I Love You were filmed. In our historic Georgian house, complete with a cosy common room, you'll also be treated to a free breakfast every morning, and can make use of our big kitchen to make your other meals. Our free Wi-Fi will help you research where to get Dublin's tastiest pint of Guinness (although we reckon it's at local icon The Celt, a couple of minutes' walk away).


We're across the road from Customs House, one of Dublin's most striking old buildings, and just a minute's stroll down the street from the central bus station, Busáras. A bus from Dublin Airport will drop you off here after a half-hour trip, or you can message us to find out about airport transfers if you'd rather have a lift. Heading out for a night on the town? Famous Temple Bar – the city's buzzing nightlife area – is less than 15 minutes' walk away.

Rooms and Dorms

Paddy's Palace Dublin has private rooms and dorms with shared bathrooms or en-suites. You'll have a free security locker to stuff your backpack in and free linen (so you won't have to part with any extra euros). If you'd rather stay in a dorm with other women, we have female-only spaces as well as mixed options.

Extras and activities

We're Irish-owned and run, so we're definitely in the know about some of best Dublin's secret spots. We've got free walking tours to get involved in if you're looking to tick off the main sights, too. While you're out lapping up the culture, your belongings will be safe thanks to our 24-hour security. There'll also be someone on reception day and night if you need a hand with anything.

    Clean room room and toilets, shower was fine, kitchen always clean with good breakfast and cooking facilities. The only bad thing, it is really loud, people running up and down, talking/shouting very loudly. So if you can not sleep with disturbing noises, should consider to book a hotel or other accommodation. (or earplug) The stuff was really nice and helpful all the time, kitchen was good and breakfast as well. Overall this is a good value for the price.

    It was okay, nothing special at all. Bed was very comfy, toilet and bathroom separately, simple, no shampoo or shower gel there. Kitchen was nice and breakfast - cornflakes bread and jam, butter. IT WAS OKAY, but pretty expensive for OKAY.

    I stayed in a room for 6 people but the room is too small even for 2 persons. There are ONLY 2 plugs for 8 people, seriously ??? The reception is on the building next door and every time you go out you have to go to reception so someone have to go with you and open the door with their key, you are not allowed to have one.

    The toilets and showers were dirty and there was no place to put your stuff while taking a shower. The entrance door was not working sometimes and it is really loud so it wakes you up at night. There is no Wifi in the sleeping rooms. The kitchen was cold and there were limited places to sit down.

    Negative aspects: - Cold water: we stayed there for three nights and we couldn't have a shower because of the cold water at the bathrooms. In none of the them hot water worked. - Heater: it was off during our stay. - Noise: the windows were like paper, we could hear so much noise from the outside and of course we could feel the low temperatures. - Keys: we don't know the reason but we had to go almost every time to the reception asking for help. POSITIVE ASPECTS: -Staff and location
