Located in the middle of Temple Bar, above a popular Italian restaurant and overlooking the Liffey, this smart guesthouse could hardly feel more in the thick of the action. Guest rooms are simple and compact, with large windows letting in plenty of natural light, although the modern bathrooms are shoebox size. It's also pricey, given the no-frills amenities—they don't service your room during your stay, for instance—but what you're really paying for here is the convenience of the location. Temple Bar rarely sleeps, and Eliza Lodge sits on a busy traffic intersection. So if you're a finger-on-the-pulse type, step right in! But if you're a very light sleeper, you might want to look elsewhere—or at least pay extra for an upper-floor room (which also gets you a nice view of the river).
