Rooms from €70
Kingfisher is a restaurant and boutique accommodation provider off O’Connell Street, one of Dublin’s main streets and probably its most historic. Only 500 metres from the GPO building where the leaders of the 1916 Easter Rising were stationed, it can be found on the street now named after Irish nationalist politician Charles Stewart Parnell. This city-centre townhouse offers both rooms and apartments, and has been granted a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. A solid option for a trip with friends, it’s clean, well situated and significantly better value than most other alternatives in the surrounding area.
