Even though Dublin is one of the smallest European capitals, the city still has lots of different neighbourhoods to visit, each with its own distinctly unique character. I think the best area to stay in Dublin depends on what you’re looking for, and is fiercley debates, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to a few of my favourites for this Dublin neighbourhood guide. For me, the south side of the city is where my heart’s at, so that’s where you’re going to find most of the areas on this list. It’s also worth mentioning that one of the main reasons I love Dublin so much is for the beautiful countryside that surrounds the city - it’s actually one of the biggest reasons why I moved here from Germany two years ago. So there are also a few outer suburbs which I think are well worth checking out if you get the chance. These little villages often have a totally different feel from inner-city Dublin, and it could make your trip to see somewhere a little bit different. There’ll be this and much more, so read on to find out exactly where to stay in Dublin, I promise there’s a spot that’s going to be just right for you!
