This is great value for staying in Dublin. There's a cheap city bus available into the city which is useful. The accommodation took us back to our uni days. So we knew what we were in for and that was perfect. A nice touch with tea and coffee in the kitchen. Comfy room. En suite. And the student union was... More

Cheap, clean fantastic.... What more do you want. Obviously with the price being low this isn't situated in the centre of Dublin but there is a bus stop just at the end of the road where a single ride is €2.20. A taxi will cost you €12. We even had our beds made and clean towels everyday. Really impressed

University rooms, just the basics: No tv, no frippery just a bed and wet room shower, sink toilet, sheets & towels. Rooms are on corridors each with a shared kitchen / lounge (kettle, oven, toaster) - you get tea & coffee and mugs but that's about it. You want plates etc? Bring your own. Dont let that any of that... More

Nice rooms good facilities, with a shared lounge and free wifi, OK the rooms are a bit basic, but the only difference from a budget hotel is that there is no TV and you have to walk to a seperate hall for Breakfast. The site is out of town but well served by buses into the city. The only downside... More

I was originally looking for a hotel in the city centre but prices were very expensive! We paid €170 for a twin room for 2 nights and it was perfect . There was no excessive noise which you would expect on a student campus and we were given fresh towels and sheets on each morning. My only complaint was seeing... More

Our stay at DCU was wonderful. The accommodation team was incredibly helpful, polite, and efficient. My group of adults remaked about how secure they felt on the campus and were pleased with the quiet environment in the housing complex. We have stayed in other campus facilities and this one rates very high. The restaurants on campus served delicious food and... More

With GPS DCU is easy to find. A large lounge has a full kitchen and coffee. Laundromat and cafeteria nearby. 4 buses go into Dublin. The parking is free and nearby. There is laundry detergent to buy at reception desk. Receptionist printed map to The Washerwoman restaurant nearby.

We came to Dublin fro a gig and were only in the city for one night. We booked the cheapest rooms in Dublin for the night and so weren't expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised with the University. The check in staff were amazing, we were particularly demanding on the young ladys time and barraged her with questions about the... More

Stayed here whilst in Dublin for an international football game. Straightforward to find via car and within close proximity to airport. Rooms are very basic but suffice. Short taxi ride to city centre. Think there's a bus from the road end aswell. Would return here if I was in Dublin with friends for an event as it's a cheap head... More

I've never stayed in university accommodation before but I would recommend it. We were welcomed by friendly staff who showed us to our room and provided extra pillows at our request. The room was nice and clean with ensuite facilities. We also had access to a lounge/kitchen with fridge/freezer where we could store water and drinks. The bar and restaurant... More
