Although not exactly budget, this large hotel just south of St. Stephen’s Green is great value for what you get. A “practical base” kind of hotel, rather than one overflowing with character and charm, the Camden Court is nonetheless well equipped, with good-size, modern guest rooms (especially the family rooms) and even a pool. You’d pay significantly more if this place were just a few blocks farther north; the only real drawback is that you’re a 10- to 20-minute walk away from the center, but a bus stop is just steps away. The traditional pub next door, the Bleeding Horse, is a good spot for a pint of Guinness with locals.
