Short Term Rentals in Dublin

Dublin is full of good quality accommodation for self catering visitors. Its wide appeal as a city means that tourists visit all year round, and the Temple Bar area near the centre is a particularly good area to stay if you’re looking for easy access to the main attractions. High quality loft apartments with views across Dublin, and larger houses with self-contained flats characterise the area. Slightly further away from the bustling centre, you’ll find plenty of townhouses and villas to rent for a short stay. Many of the townhouses in Dublin are of Georgian style, with colourful front doors and attractive façades, set around pretty squares and tree-lined streets.

  1. Short Term Rentals for Families

    Visitors with young children may like to stay to the north-west of Dublin in order to take advantage of the huge green space that is Phoenix Park. The park is also home to Dublin Zoo, which has a Victorian walled kitchen garden, tea room and tourist train. Self catering accommodation near the park includes family apartments, individual flats within large townhouses, and complete houses to rent.

    There’s no shortage of family-friendly accommodation to rent in the rest of the city either. The area around Dublin Castle offers a good choice, with the added benefit of being close to St Patrick’s Park and St Stephen’s Green where the children can run around.

  2. Short Term Rentals on a Budget

    Visitors to Dublin who need budget accommodation have a good range of affordable options, with areas away from the centre being the best for price. Alternatively, visiting out of season may allow you to stay nearer the city centre at a reasonable cost.

    With this in mind, although December is a popular time to visit Dublin, a month either side of Christmas would offer a reasonably-priced stay, even near the city centre. Opting for a small studio flat or one bedroom apartment would also help to keep the cost down. Throughout the city there are many supermarkets and farmers markets, allowing you to put together some affordable ‘home’ cooked meals.

  3. Luxury Short Term Rentals

    At the luxury end of the market, Dublin offers a range of stunning loft apartments with panoramic views, plus sleek and modern penthouses. The city centre is a good place for this type of luxury holiday accommodation, and visitors can benefit from the close proximity to the sights, restaurants, bars and nightlife of Dublin. Transport links in the area are good, so travelling around the rest of the city will not be a problem if you don’t have a car.

    Further outside the city centre you’ll find more spacious luxury accommodation. Houses and villas in the outskirts benefit from larger gardens and some even have their own swimming pools and barbeque facilities should you wish to entertain during your visit.

  4. Short Term Rentals for Business

    Staying in self catering accommodation that is close to the airport provides the opportunity to settle in quickly on arrival, and take advantage of the excellent public transport links into the city. An apartment in this location would be perfect for single overnight stays, and you’ll be able to quickly return to the airport when business is complete.

    For longer business trips of one month or more, the Temple Bar area has a good range of clean and comfortable apartments, along with restaurants and informal places to eat if you get tired of cooking, or want a change of scene. Whether you rent a studio flat or prefer a more spacious apartment with one or two bedrooms, you won’t be disappointed by the choice in Temple Bar.

  5. Alternative Short Term Rentals

    Trinity College Dublin, offers self catered accommodation to visitors between May and September. Rooms can be booked for one night or more and prices include a continental breakfast, although visitors can upgrade to a full English if they prefer. The coffee shop and facilities in the sports centre are also there to be enjoyed by tourists during their stay on campus.

    For a quirky self catering stay, try No 25 Eustace Street, which is in the Temple Bar area of Dublin. Part of the Irish Landmark Trust, this lovely Georgian house boasts a grand piano in its first floor drawing room. Not only that, there’s a free-standing roll top bath on the top floor of this lovely home-from-home.
