Bottom Line

The 131-room Arlington Hotel, located within a short walk of Temple Bar, is a budget option best suited for young travelers hoping to save some cash. The hotel has a popular restaurant (where traditional Celtic performances take place every night) and a nightclub, but few other amenities -- there's no fitness center or business center. While some guests take full advantage of the nightclub, others may not appreciate the crowds and music that can often be heard late into the night. Rooms are simple; some have flat-screen TVs, others have tube TVs, and all offer coffeemakers and free Wi-Fi. Groups and families may consider the budget-friendly Family Rooms, which can accommodate up to four travelers in three separate beds.

This Arlington Hotel is situated in City Center North, an area of Dublin centered around the city's main thoroughfare, O'Connell Street. O'Connell Street, a very quick walk from the hotel, is lined by historic buildings and monuments, as many important moments in Irish history took place in the area. There are several restaurants and hotels in the area, as well as numerous shops. The neighborhood is also Dublin's theater district.

The Arlington hotel is just a short walk across the river from Temple Bar, known as Dublin's "cultural quarter" and also the scene of Dublin's nightlife.
