Dublin is a great city but staying in the city centre can be costly. If you want to be close to the Irish capital’s attractions but don’t want to pay through the teeth, then why not consider hotels on Dublin’s outskirts? Just a short journey into the city centre and well-served by public transport, destinations such as Sutton, Leopardstown and Drumcondra are perfect for holidaymakers considering a cheap Irish break.
Sutton is surrounded by many beaches, so holidaymakers can benefit from a great mixture of city and beach. While in the area you’ll also discover Red Rock, a private residence belonging to the Jameson family. Leopardstown is famous for its racecourse, which hosts National Hunt and Flat racing, whilst in Drumcondra you can see Gaelic football and hurling at Croke Park. Some famous pubs are situated here, such as the Cat and the Canary, the site of the 1798 rebellion, and Fagin’s Public House, where Bertie Ahern took Bill Clinton in 1998.
