How much spending money for three nights in dublin??

Hi all

I'm looking to go dublin in January for a three night stay.. I've got flights and the hotel in mind and its under £300.00 which I am very happy with. I have heard it is expensive in dublin so I just wanted a rough idea of how much you would recommend I'll need?? I will need money for eating out two/three times a day, I will most likely be going to cheap restaurants and not anything fancy and I would like to go on one or two trips.. The Guinness factory being one of them. The hotel is in dublin city centre so I don't think I will be spending much on travel unless I choose to travel out somewhere

I hope to hear from you soon

Thanks

I think youcan quite easily spend around £200. Dublin is expensive.

I agree with london, £200 it'll be enough if you go as you say to the cheapest restaurants, it all depends on what you want to do, but remember that £1 right now is 1.2 Euros, so 240 Euros should be enough.

There is a wide range of dining options, from fast food to fancy sitdowns to pubs. Take a look at the Dublin local forum (see link below) - if you are on a laptop or pc (not mobile) there is a Top Questions list on the right side of the page and one item is Visiting Dublin on a Budget, which you might want click.

The Guinness tour requires a little walking to get to - from most places in city centre.

The Guinness Factory is one of the stops on the Hop On Hop Off bus tour. The entry fee also includes a half pint of Guinness, or a soft drink.

Dublin is an expensive city, but if your hotel includes a traditional Irish breakfast, you could probably get by with a light lunch. Bewleys is a coffee/restaurant chain, the prices are reasonable, and the food is good.

From the airport, you can get fast frequent buses straight into the city, so there is no need get a taxi. It's cheaper to buy a return ticket than a single.

Get a bus ticket, infact most places you walk around but buses are great too.

The cost is on par with London, it really depends on what you like to do. I enjoyed walking around the cobbled streets at night, didn't cost a penny
