My daughter and I will be coming home to the Notre Dame game at Aviva Stadium on August 26, 2023. It is our first time in Ireland and we definitely want to sight see while we are here. She likes off the beaten things to do and I like the traditional. Is there an accommodation that is walking distance ( a few blocks not miles) where two ladies can be safe during the game weekend close to the stadium or will we have to stay in 'chain" hotels? I am looking for B and B's and Castle Stays but not with the added cost of game weekend!  I will consider any accommodation suggestions locals have for us!

Hi Danielle,

It's great to hear that you and your daughter are over for the Notre Dame game next year!

Accommodation within walking distance of the stadium is primarily hotels and some smaller hotels and guesthouses. Please have a look at our accommodation search page on our website. Just scroll down to the where do you want to stay section and use the filters. We have pre-selected Dublin City and hotels and guest houses to get you started.

If you wish to stay a little bit outside the city to spend time exploring then using the public transport system, which is pretty extensive in and around Dublin, would be a great idea. The DART green line would allow you to be out as far as Greystones and be able to get to Landsdowne Road for the Aviva Stadium. There are some lovely day trips from the city that can also be achieved by public transport.

B&B Ireland has a helpful website for searching for the B&B option, but again, these would be out of the city.

How long are you over for so we can add to your itinerary some special things to see and do?

Thank you! We will be here at least a week. What are the difference between a guest house and a B and B?

Hello Danielle,

How wonderful that you have a week to explore around the game! I'll be happy to share some suggestions for things to do in and around Dublin, in addition to Martin's great suggestions. 

About your question regarding accommodation: a guesthouse is essentially designed for hosting guests, with a reception and sometimes a cafe or restaurant on the premises. A B&B is a private host who has set aside one or more rooms for hosting guests and will provide a homemade breakfast. Both are great for experiencing Irish hospitality with local hosts, to learn about Irish culture and find out about things to do or see in the vicinity. 

Here is a proposed itinerary for covering many of Dublin's sights on foot in 72 hours. If you find yourself with some time on your hands, you can also hop on a train or bus and explore further afield. Our island can easily be traversed with public transport, so you might consider a trip to Galway, for instance. 

I hope this is helpful and that you are looking forward to a great match as well as a wonderful holiday on the Emerald Isle.

Kind regards,

Vera
