Not sure where best to put this; so, for now, rather than initiating a thread for it, I'll post it here, and will put it elsewhere, if find a better place for it [or if the moderators do]:

If anyone knows of someone who may be holding back from Dublin due to cost of lodging on top of flights, or travel of any kind... this is what I booked, so if it could make the difference for you, please contact me:

My room is in an airbnb home for 8 days, with my checking in on August 5th and checking out on August 13th, so any days within that, there would be room for you. It's a very sweet and clean set-up. A bright room with two twin beds, a private bathroom with a shower, and doors from the bedroom that open up onto the sitting area of the rear garden.

It's costing me $255 USD for the 8 nights, and to add another person is $14/night more, so if we added that for you for the full 8 nights, and then split the cost, it would be another $168 USD ~ so grand total would be $423 for the two of us. Divide that by 2 and it comes to $211/each TOTAL ~ and they provide Breakfast. [If you stayed less than 8 nights, we would adjust it accordingly.] It has a private bath with shower, and double, glass doors that open out onto the backyard, and what appears to be a red tile patio.

There's a bus that takes 15-20 minutes to the City Centre. It's located near the Botanical Gardens. So, any need for a taxi could be split, plus on Friday and Saturday night, there's a Nite bus that runs up to very late. To see and read about it, you can go to airbnb, see 4 photos, and then click on the various buttons to read more about it.

Okay, first you go to airbnb.com and enter Dublin, Ireland. Put in whatever dates you want, as that won't matter. When it takes you to the deeper searching page, set the money scale at 0 to $50 per night, even though it looks like you can't, you CAN move the measure far to the left enough to do that. It's auto-set at 0 to $1,000. You'll be able to see 4 photos and read the other stuff about it by clicking on the various buttons.

Then, you should be able to see the one titled: "Double/Twin Room - Warm & Cosy Home" House - Private room · Ballygall Road East, Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland.

When I wrote to someone else, whose place I was considering, to let them know I'd found something else, she replied:

"Glasnevin is a lovely area and the Botanical Gardens are beautiful.

Another one I notified responded: "No problem. You'll have a great time here. Don't forget to visit the Gravedigger's Pub (quite local) and the Cobblestone near town for trad music."

Please contact me by PM if you think you might be interested.
