Jacobs Inn Hostel

21-28 Talbot Place


HostelCulture says

This is another long running Dublin hostel and it knows how to be a really good hostel. It's quiet big and as such offers an extensive range of room types, private and dorms, and all are spacious and ensuite - which is particularly rare in hostels in Dublin. The self-catering kitchen is large, very functional and sociable, common areas are comfortable and their outdoor common area on the upper-floor offers a nice setting to chill out and absorb the city from above with fellow travellers when the Irish weather behaves itself. It's very convenient for airport connections too. We recommend!

With great transport links we are just down road from Central Bus station (Busaras), 2 minutes from Connolly train station and a hop skip and a jump from the Luas (Tram) with connections all over city.
The Links to the Airport are real handy with the Airlink 747 bus collecting Jacobs Inn hostel guests at the end of the street at the Central Bus Station( Busaras) .Operating from 5.15am ( 7.15am Sundays). Discounted tickets are available here at Jacobs Inn for purchase. The bus takes 30 minutes.
