What payment methods do you accept? caret-down

You can make a reservation with us using credit card (MasterCard, Visa, Debit Cards). We’d recommend changing some of your Australian Dollars into Euros to use during your stay in Dublin, as some venues or market stalls for example may be cash only.

Do I need to bring ID with me? caret-down

To check in, guests must provide a valid government-issued ID and a credit card in their name… and have enough money to pay for their bed for the night. It’s that simple! You will also need ID for drinking in bars, with the minimum age for alcohol consumption in Dublin being 18.

Lastly, if you’re boozing while others are snoozing, show respect. Please keep the noise levels down between 11 pm and 7 am.

Do you have an age restriction? caret-down
