Affordable Hotel for the Taylor Swift Concert in Dublin

Swifties have been in a frenzy since one of the most popular singers of this generation, Taylor Swift, announced her European Tour. Much to the delight of Irish fans, Taylor announced a Dublin date for the much-anticipated Eras Tour at Aviva Stadium on Friday 28th Jun 2024. As usual, when a big name is announced, hotels hike up their prices and people scramble to book rooms at extortionate cost. There is an alternative for concertgoers however and It’s better than in your Wildest Dreams. DCU Rooms offers affordable concert accommodation for the Taylor Swift Concert in 2024. Book on our official website for our best available rates. Don’t have a Cruel Summer, when you book your affordable accommodation at DCU Rooms.

Affordable Accommodation

Quality affordable accommodation in Dublin is rare and wonderful. DCU Rooms is located outside of the city with excellent transport links to and from the Aviva Stadium. On each of our three campuses, we have a choice of rooms which are perfect for groups, families or lone travellers. We have several accommodation types to offer from private and shared rooms to entire suites, especially useful for groups or families. We have 16 one and two-bedroom visitor suites available all year round on our Glasnevin campus.  Our suites have fully equipped kitchens making them more accessible and even better value for money, We offer more affordable rates than our Dublin Hotel counterparts, without compromising our high standards and fantastic guest services throughout.

Public Transport

As one of the major universities in Dublin, we’re well connected by public transport all year round. There are over a dozen regular busses from DCU that will take you to and from the city centre and it’s a short second bus ride to Aviva Stadium; perfect if you want to stop in the city for a quick bite or a few drinks before the concert. Buses from DCU include routes 3, 4, 9, 11, 13, 16, 16A, 17A, 33, 41, 41B, 41C, 46X, 103, 104 and 105. Hop on bus 4 to get as close as possible to the Aviva Stadium without changing. The fastest way to get from your Dublin accommodation to the Stadium is a combination of bus and DART, Dublin’s commuter train. Alight at the Lansdowne Road Station which is adjacent to Aviva Stadium. If you need car parking, our on-site car parks have reasonable rates per hour. We’d recommend avoiding driving to the concert as parking is limited and traffic is guaranteed to be bad.

Local Area 

While you’re in Glasnevin, it would be a pity not to explore a little. We’re a vibrant community with some excellent pubs and dining options so you don’t have to battle the crowds in the city centre before the big event. Some of the best local pubs nearby include John Kavanagh The Gravediggers, The Autobahn, Tolka House, The Slipper and more. Local restaurants off-campus include Le Petit Cafe & Brasserie, Autobahn Roadhouse and for a quick and delicious takeaway on the way home, Macari’s Glasnevin. Nu Bar in DCU has a great selection of high-quality meals that you can enjoy before you hit the road for the biggest concert of the year. Nearby Drumcondra has some great dining options like Shouk, The Lovely Food Company, Fagans Bar & Restaurant, Mint Leaf and many more adjacent to the DART Station. 

Explore Dublin 

Whether this is your first or tenth time in Dublin, there is always something to explore here. Close to DCU, you can pop into the National Botanic Gardens or Glasnevin Cemetery. In the city centre, there is a great selection of museums with everything from mummified bodies to modern art, with something to fascinate and educate all visitors. You can spend time in the city parks and do some shopping on Grafton Street or Henry Street. Grab a drink and enjoy music and fun in Temple Br after the gig which is always heaving with tourists and locals. Tour buses are a great way to get to know the city and it doesn’t get any better than the Viking Splash Tour which shows you the city on land and from the water.
