If you’ve been tasked with planning a community group tour, school tour or semester abroad for school or college, where do you start? Choosing Dublin as the destination is the easy part. Dublin is filled with history, scenery, coastline, fun, shopping, and adventure, not to mention fantastic dining options. Choosing group accommodation in Dublin is a little harder. You’ll want something in a convenient location, with adequate group facilities and that your whole team will love. DCU Rooms offers ideal group accommodation in Dublin that is flexible and reasonably priced, especially when compared to high-cost city centre hotels.
While it’s easy to fill the days with trips to museums, parks and other attractions, what do your group members do in their downtime? It can be hard to keep people entertained, especially when travelling as s group with varied interests. You’ll need to ensure your accommodation has adequate group facilities where you can meet, eat, relax and enjoy as a team. DCU is one of the largest and most popular universities in the country and our campus is ideal to accommodate groups of all ages and sizes.
On the DCU campus, we have a bar & restaurant alongside a large canteen space, ideal to share a group lunch or dinner or a quick briefing before you hit the road. Nearby, we have Albert College Park, a great place for an outdoor meeting, playing a team sport or lounging enjoying the rare Irish sun. The campus also has a top-of-the-range leisure centre and gym, ideal for sports groups or people who want to stay active. If you need to host a meeting for your team, we have a range of meeting rooms and spaces, customisable to your needs and budget. DCU has everything you need for a successful group visit to Dublin.
One of the most sensitive factors when booking a semester abroad, a team trip or a school tour is the cost. You want to make sure your accommodation offers value for money so that more people can enjoy a trip with their peers. Group accommodation in Dublin is not cheap, especially if you opt for a hotel in the city centre. Choosing alternative accommodation not only adds to the character of the trip, it also makes the overall cost more affordable for individuals.
DCU offers a variety of accommodation options to suit most budgets. Our shared twin rooms are ideal for students or group members who like to share with peers. The bedrooms are split so each person has their privacy and the bathroom is shared. We also have private room options and leaders can enjoy one and two-bedroom visitor suites available all year round on our Glasnevin campus. All our rooms come with free WiFi and access to the campus facilities.
When you’re travelling with a group, location is important. Depending on the length of your trip, you’ll want to stay close to the airport to avoid early morning commutes, and of course, be close to the action and attractions of the city centre. Long commutes to and from the city, changing between buses and trains, relying on taxis home, and spending most of your days working out the logistics isn’t ideal.
DCU campuses are located between the city and the airport, a short trip by public transport to each. As a popular student campus in Dublin, transport links are excellent. There are multiple buses to and from the city, leaving very regularly. We have an abundance of bicycle parking spaces and car parking is also available. We’re well connected by road, making onward travel easy. We’re located on the North side of Dublin surrounded by bars, restaurants and other attractions such as the beautiful botanic gardens. We’re close to the Dublin coastline and have parks, shops, and so much more on our doorstep.
