What’ll it be? Pint of the black stuff? There’s no denying it – a lot of people who book a Dublin hostel are in it for the craic. Famous for its best-in-the-world Guinness (well, the brewery is around the corner) its talkative locals, its traditional pubs and its huge student population, this is a hell of a place for a lost weekend. Or week. Or month. You get the idea. But as you stagger out of your hostel dorm and the fog of the night before clears, you’ll find yourself in a potted history of Ireland: Viking relics, winding medieval streets and elegant Georgian squares with brightly-painted doors. Plus, of course, all the shopping, culture and great grub you’d expect from a thriving modern capital. Sound good? Then check out the range of hostels: cheap hostels, backpacker-friendly hostels, city centre hostels, downtown hostels – take your pick and get booking. We’ll be waiting at the bar.

Dublin Airport is where you’ll arrive if you fly to the city. It’s an international airport, offering links to the rest of Ireland too, and it’s only 5.4 miles from the city centre. The AirLink 747 and Aircoach line 700 bus services will take you to the city centre and its hostels for €6-€7. If you’re able to spend a bit more, there are taxi ranks outside both terminals.
There are two major train stations in Dublin. There’s Connolly Station, located to the north of the city centre, and there’s Dublin Heuston. It’s a bit further from the centre of town and it serves the south and west of the city, and provides rail links to the rest of the country.
Backpackers travelling by bus arrive at busaras (Central Bus Station) in the heart of the city. It offers intercity and regional bus services and it’s easy to walk into the city centre from this location. You can reach the airport from here too.
On most inner city buses you’ll need coins to pay your fare. Most drivers won’t have change for bank notes. Consider the trams too – the Red Line will carry you past some of the city’s loveliest landmarks.
