Come and travel with us on a budget in Ireland! We will be giving tips and advice how to travel on a budget in Ireland.
Public Transport (Bus, Trains)
It is always better to use public transport as this also helps you to explore the city. Another benefit is you blend in with the locals without feeling excluded as a tourist. Especially nowadays everyone has a smartphone meaning you can always search where you want to go and this directs you specifically which transportation will be faster and cheaper way to get to your destination. Another tip is if you are in Ireland, It’s also best if you download the apps that are available in Ireland as it will be easier for you to get to places.
Moreover renting a car is also another way to get to your destination, if you are traveling with your family this is the best way as you get to enjoy the road trip with your loved ones. I have also checked some of the renting cars sites, of course, the price is depending on what car you would like to rent. There are some that are really cheap most likely $10 per day upwards.

For your accommodation, It’s always best to check sites like Booking.com, Trivago.com for you to have an idea of the price range and could also choose the best price which is suitable for you.
Airbnb.com is also a good choice as you get a breakfast which you don’t have to think about when you start your day as you know you’ll be walking around as you’d like to explore the city without having an empty stomach.
Airbnb also offers self-service or also called as the communal kitchen where you can make your sandwich or cook for your meal at night or for your lunch. So instead of spending twice for your meal you only have to spend once. When you get hungry in the middle of your trip you can always eat the sandwich this saves you also from spending snack outside.
It’s also best to bring water bottle all the time as you can always refill it when you get thirsty. Buying drinks outside is always expensive and if you are on a tight budget it’s better if you just bring your own drink.
Tang Cafe is one of the recommended cheap restaurants to eat in Dublin. The prices range from 6 euros upwards, which is not bad at all. It is also highly rated which means they offer a great service and good food.
Another one is called Beanhive it’s also one of the high rated cheap places to eat in Dublin, their sandwiches range from 5 euros upwards which is the best price on top of that it’s also good food.
