Rathmines is an inner suburb lying 3 kilometres south of Dublin’s City Centre. The area has been gentrified over the years and is now a very attractive place to live and stay in.
Rathmines has a selection of boutique and modern hotels that cater to a wide range of budgets. Given the area’s location just outside of the city, visitors can often find hotels at a lower cost than those based in the city centre. Also, several hotels are based within some of the area’s most historic and beautiful buildings in the area and, as a result, are steeped in character and charm.
With the revival of Rathmines in recent years, the area makes for a very pleasant place to stay in. Visitors can spend a few hours soaking up the area’s mix of vintage shops, cafes and bars along its high street. What’s more, the area is only 15-20 minutes’ walk from Dublin’s City Centre for those wanting to venture into the city to enjoy its endless sights and attractions.
Rathmines is also in close proximity to several of Dublin’s golf courses. For those interested in the sport, there are endless opportunities to play golf at different courses situated not too far away from the area.
Rathmines has its own selection of great restaurants for visitors to enjoy, without needing to venture into the busier city centre. Restaurants range from modern and contemporary to international cuisine, with many of the restaurants looking to source produce and ingredients from local producers where possible.
Rathmines has a great mix of traditional and modern bars that are loved by locals. Many of the area’s drinking holes have a great atmosphere and a good selection of drinks such as craft beers and gin cocktails.
