Dublin is a moody, literary city. It’s a great city for history buffs and book lovers as it is home to lots of authors and poets. Here, you’ll find castles, traditional pubs, and countless opportunities to experience live music.

Dublin is fairly compact, making all the sights, activities, and walking tours easy to do. You can get pretty much anywhere on foot.

Therefore, when you’re thinking of a hotel, don’t worry too much about where it is located (unless it’s far from the center). The city’s tram system makes it easy to get around too.

Here’s my list of the best hotels in Dublin:

1. Harcourt Hotel

Located in the center of the city, this three-star hotel is housed in a series of historic 18th-century Georgian townhouses, one of which was once the home of famed writer George Bernard Shaw. There’s a bar on-site that regularly hosts live music, as well as both a restaurant and a beer garden. The rooms, while not huge, feature nice touches of color that brighten up the space, have lots of natural light, as well as wooden accenting. The beds are comfy and there’s a flatscreen TV, desk, and free Wi-Fi in each room. While the bathrooms are on the smaller side, the water pressure is great (a big plus in my book). There’s an included breakfast too.

Located in the boisterous Temple Bar area, this hotel was bought by Bono and the Edge from U2 in 1992. It was completely renovated a few years later and is considered one of the coolest places to stay in the city (though it’s no longer owned by the duo). A boutique four-star property, the hotel has an arty, quirky design that features lots of colorful art and wallpaper. The rooms were designed by Irish artisans and feature stylish custom furnishings like white oak floors, colorful and plush headboards, and unique artwork on the walls. The bathrooms have powerful rainfall shower heads as well as limestone flooring and tiled walls. In-room amenities include the standard offerings (flatscreen TV, desk, minibar, coffee/tea maker, desks).

Downstairs, there’s a luxurious cocktail bar and a fantastic restaurant serving elevated Irish fare, including daily breakfast and a bottomless brunch on Sundays.
