Will be on a trip with 3 single guys in there early 30's in early October. We will be in Dublin for 2 days and then headed to the west coast for a couple days to meet some friends. I am looking on some advice for places to stay in Dublin. We're not rich by any means but are all employed, doing fairly well and willing to pay for convenience to be close to the more popular bars/pubs in the popular areas. Proximity to do some sightseeing during the days either to public transportation or within walking distance of the places to see would also be preferred if possible. Any advice is much appreciated.
