For my first night in Dublin I stayed at the four courts hostel. I choose this hostel after as it was the starting point of my Shamrocker Adventure All Ireland Tour.
The hostel has basic accommodations and walking on stairs is a requirement. Their are three common areas in the hostel, the kitchen galley, a quite reading room and another event room where they occasionally show movies.
The hostel walls are covered with various recreations of Banksy artwork.
The hostel is located on a Main Street and there was quite a bit of traffic noise through the night. The beds were comfortable and using the provided duvets is required.
In the morning I jumped on my Shamerocker Adventure Tour – All Ireland Rocker with our Tour Guide Gemma and Driver Joe.
