About The Holyhead

The best of Dublin is just a few minutes away from our front door:
O'Connell Street is around the corner, Trinity College and the Grafton Street area right across the Liffey river.
Walk 10 minutes and find yourself enjoying a Guinness in the famous Temple Bar district.

The Holyhead offers simple but clean and affordable rooms in a warm and easy-going atmosphere,
24h hot showers, free Wi-Fi - and kind staff ready to assist you!

The Holyhead is located beside the Central Bus Station (Shuttle to/from the airport every 10min), and Connolly Railway Station: you have the whole of Ireland at your fingertips.

Accommodation Information

All of our rooms are private, with a sink. Toilets and showers are shared.
Please note that our Twin, Triple and Family/Friends rooms are a mix of Singles, Doubles, and Bunk beds.

Interested in booking the BUDGET PRIVATE SINGLE? Please read:
This room is a VERY small room with no window! It looks more like a (nice) decorated prison cell than a hotel room. This is WHY it is the cheapest available private room in Dublin!
Our other PRIVATE SINGLE is a regular sized single room (with a window).

Location Information

42 Gardiner Street Lower, right at the corner of Gardiner Street and Talbot Street. 2 minutes walk away from the spire, and 1 minute walk away from Busaras station. Easy!
