          assume you are arriving into Dublin Port? taxi best bet as it is not far.. there is a bus option but you would have to check routes to top (North End) of O Connell st when you reach port. .

          We are thinking of booking in for March 2018. It would be myself, husband and teenage daughter. What room would you recommend we book? We want some space, but of course would be sightseeing most of the day. Also should we pass a pub that we like, (obviously we will 😉) will our 15 year old be allowed in? Thanks much
