Where you stay is a major factor in the success of your holiday so it is important to understand your options and assess the type of holiday that you're trying to create. Certain travelers, especially those traveling as a family or wanting to live like a local, may prefer renting a Dublin apartment to a hotel. What you give up in services like room service and a lift, you may gain in space or a fairly well-stocked kitchen. You even may find a flat with conveniences like free Wi-Fi or a washer and dryer. Usually, a holiday flat works out to be a less expensive option especially if you prepare a few meals at home.

Dublin is a perfect city in which to rent a holiday flat. The main sections of the city, Dublin 1, 2, 4 and 8, are all within a short walk of the sites and the excitement of the city. Dublin 4, which includes Ballsbridge and Embassy Row, is, at most, a 30-minute walk from the sections of the city that are more popular with tourists. If you stay in this upscale section of the city, there are plenty of nearby restaurants, and it is a great area for taking in the historic architecture. Many embassies are located in this section, and the properties are amongst the most expensive in the world.

The area that is probably the most popular with tourists is Dublin 2. This area includes Trinity College and parts of Temple Bar and Old City. If your holiday flat is in this section, you will be within the heart of all that is happening in Dublin. The Temple Bar section is extremely lively, filled with restaurants and nightlife. Walk its cobblestone streets, past markets and unique shops. And young travelers may enjoy the Loft Market, known for its redesigned vintage clothes. This cultural centre of Dublin is also home to the art and antique shops of Francis Street.

For those who prefer newer, trendier neighbourhoods, Dublin 1 may be the perfect location for your holiday flat. In what was once a poor section of the city, North Quays or Northside is now an up and coming area with hip bars and trendy, new hotels. While the area is not inexpensive, most holiday flats in this area will be less expensive than ones in the better known sections south of the Liffey, and tourists will still be within minutes of all the sites that Dublin has to offer.

Dublin has history, charm and a vibrant nightlife. Your stay in the city will be memorable, and a holiday flat may be the perfect base for all of your adventures.
