EBBC14 Hotel Information and Update

Dublin is a busy city!

Thanks for all your patience these last few weeks as we have tried to locate and sort out a good discount for you at a Dublin hotel. Unfortunately, the hotels that have enough rooms are not offering us rates we like.

We have therefore compiled a list of hotels below that are within walking distance and have availability (as of this date). Some are at negotiated rates for conference attendees, but the better rates seem to be rack rates at smaller establishments. The rates at each vary, so please shop around to find something you’re comfortable with.

We also have a Facebook Group you can join to network a roommate and/or ask questions and discuss the conference.

Hotel St. George – 9 rooms left & 10 minute walk

Hotel St. George is offering these rooms at €119 per night B&B. Please book directly with the hotel and reference the EBBC or European Beer Bloggers Conference (ask for Karl the GM if need be): http://www.hotel-st-george.ie/

Maldron Hotel – Parnell Square – good availability & 10 minute walk

Maldron is offering us a good discount off their published rate at €189 per night, though it is still pricey. Includes breakfast. You can book this directly here.

The Camden – 20 minute walk

2 star accommodations at €80 per night. It has a nightclub. Looks pretty fun. Book direct: http://www.camdendeluxehotel.com/index.html

Maple Hotel – 10 minute walk

Published rate: €115 per night. Book direct: http://maplehotel.com/

Hostel Options:


Another option, especially if a few of you get together, is to rent out a private flat via Airbnb. I did a quick search and there are several close options with multiple beds making this potentially the most affordable way to go.

The following are options provided by Reuben Gray of Tale of Ale who’s been helping us greatly with bringing this conference to Dublin. Thanks, Reuben!

City Centre options:
The Ripley Court Hotel – €90 per night.
Right by one of Dublin’s best craft beer bars (Brewdock) with tram to the venue.
Paddy’s Palace hostel – €54 single or €27 sharing (private room).
Includes free airport shuttle and breakfast. Right by one of Dublin’s best craft beer bars (Brewdock).
Lynam’s hotel – from €84 advanced purchase
O’Connell street, so city centre and a short walk to venue.
Suburban options:
Travelodge Dublin Phoenix Park – €68 per night.
Close to regular train (15 minutes to city centre and tram transfer to venue)
and bus (25 minutes to city centre with a short walk to venue). Not much in area but might suit any who drive over via ferry.
Ibis Hotel – Clondalkin – €38 per night
Close to tram direct to venue (20 mins), also aircoach bus to and from airport. Not much in the area.
Lucan Spa Hotel – €55 per night including breakfast.
About 20 minute regular bus journey. The Lucan County bar is next door with some craft beer options and excellent prices.
West County – €55 per night with breakfast or €50 without.
About 10 minutes bus to city centre. Not a lot in the area but a short walk to the Phoenix park and some nice pubs in Chapelizod, even if no decent beer.

With Dublin being a busy city in June, we suggest booking your accommodations ASAP. Also – a reminder that early bird pricing on conference registrations ends at the end of March… and only a handful of Molson Coors stipends remain! Register, book, and get ready for #EBBC14!
