Another reasonable option in Ballsbridge, the Mespil is about a 15-minute walk from St. Stephen’s Green. Accommodations here are certainly of a higher standard than what you’re likely to find uptown for the same price. (Stays of more than 1 night usually qualify for discounts when you book online.) The guest rooms are spacious and feature modern decor and comfortable beds. Bathrooms are large, and many have walk-in rainfall showers. The street below can be quite noisy—ask for a top-floor room. In common with most hotels of this type, breakfast is served buffet-style—tasty and excellent fuel for a day wandering the city. One other nice little bonus: An excellent gourmet food market is held just outside by the canal every Thursday from 11am to 2pm (see www.irishvillagemarkets.com for details).
