Heading to the big smoke in November to see Michael McIntyre and looking into hotels. DHs parents are coming too so need cheap and cheerful and parking would be a bonus as we'll prob drive. DH is looking at the Clarion and Jurys Inn Custom House, I'm wondering if these are a bit far out.
In-laws going to see MM Saturday night and we're going Sunday night ( I bought Sat night tickets first but bad seats way up in the back. Then he announced Sunday night and I got good seats! Giving the Sat night tickets to in-laws as Christmas present!)
The Clarion and Jury's are pretty much as close as you can get when it comes to cheap and cheerful. They're about a 10 minute walk away.
The only one nearer is The Gibson which is literally about 10 steps from The O2 but I'd doub it's cheap.
Phrased my initial questions badly, when I say i'm worried they're a bit far, I meant far from the city if me and DH go out on the Saturday night.
Oh right, not they're not far from the city. They're both a walkable distant (although maybe not in heels!) but it'd only be maybe €5/€6 for a taxi from Temple Bar area to either hotel.
You could try the Gibson, so etimes they have room only rates for €99. the Luas stops right at the door and brings you right onto o conn ell street. If your out late maybe grab a taxi home, wouldn't be more than a fiver I'd say
