Hi Gareth, welcome to the Community!
What a great trip you have ahead of you and you definitely won't be stuck for great places to stay outside Dublin! We have no shortage of amazing scenery and great local pubs, if I do say so myself!
I think this page on Dublin's coastal towns and villages
is a great place to start, and might help spark some inspiration for you. It gives you all of the main options in close range to Dublin and they are all really easily accessible by using the DART
. Their website is super easy to use and great for checking schedules and timetables.
You should also check out this page on the 10 best day trips from Dublin!
I'm confident you will find somewhere great to stay on your trip.
There is a search tool for both accommodation
on our website. You can search by location, type of event or accommodation and even view them on a map. Is there any particular type of music that you would love to hear while on your trip?
I'm sure no matter where you choose, you will have an amazing trip! Keep us posted, we'd love to hear what you get up to!
