The best hotels in Docklands, Dublin
The Docklands showcases Dublin's ability to compete on an international level. A heady mix of historical architecture, slick contemporary design, museum, galleries and some of the city's best restaurants. Wander through the area and look out for works from the Public Art project before exploring the fascinating and interactive EPIC The Irish Emigration museum. As a renewed industrial area there is plenty of space along the river and, during the summer months, Grand Canal Square and Mayor Square (heralded for their design credentials) make for great spots to pause in. The area is centred around the river Liffey which can be crossed via the spectacular Seán O'Casey Bridge (a pedestrian swing bridge). Just a stroll from the city centre, yet the best hotels in Docklands are not flooded by tourists.
