Dublin is not cheap. That said, Dublin is not a city where it is impossible to find good deals. Hotels and restaurants are far less expensive than they are in many other northern European cities.
Expect to Spend: Dublin
Inexpensive and moderately priced hotels in Dublin range between €50 and €90 for a double. We set our upper limit in Dublin at €125 for a double room, but most of the hotels we reviewed are under €100 a night.
You don’t have to spend a lot on food in Dublin. Good, decently-sized lunches at restaurants and cafés are priced around €10, or you can combine activity with cheap lunch by hitting up a food market. It's tough to find dinner for less than €10 in Dublin, but there are plenty of reasonable options for under €20. Try out some of our favorite cheap restaurants in Dublin.
