Garden Lane Backpackers is a brand new, stylish and contemporary hostel in the convenient central location of Christchurch, Dublin. Our aim at Garden Lane is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, making you feel right at home, while providing a high-quality service at a budget price.

We’re tucked away in a side street just off Francis Street. It’s a great location for visiting the Guinness Storehouse, Jameson Distillery, Christchurch Cathedral, Saint Patrick Cathedral, Dublin Castle and the Brazen Head – Ireland’s oldest pub!

And we’re only a ten-minute walk from popular hotspots like Grafton Street, Temple Bar, Camden area and Trinity College. There are many restaurants, shops, bars, pubs and supermarkets just around the corner. You’ll never be short of things to do here!

free coffee & breakfast

We offer comfortable accommodation in 4, 6 and 8 bed dorms (including female only dorms) and each room has its own Wi-Fi router. Linen is free (yes, we’ll make your bed for you) and we provide high quality mattresses and individual reading lights to ensure a high level of comfort. Each bed also comes with its own power socket, and an under-bed locker to secure your luggage. All the dorms are cleaned daily and the beds are always made with fresh linen. Each floor has multiple bathrooms that are cleaned three times every day to ensure a high standard of cleanliness.

On the top floor we have a spacious kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals, including plenty of fridge space and tea/coffee/hot chocolate at any time. From 7:30am to 10am a free continental breakfast is provided.

The kitchen has an outside terrace with stunning panoramic views of Dublin city and the surrounding Dublin mountains.

Opposite the kitchen is the living room where you are always welcome to hang out and watch a movie, have a drink, stare at your smartphone or play a game with our staff members and guests. We have two PC’s here that are free to use for any purpose. A hairdryer and iron + board are available to all our guests free of charge.

Our Irish and international team are experts on things to do and see in- and outside of Dublin, and we are always happy to offer you (practical) advice or to draw on our own experiences. As we are affiliated with several tour companies, we can offer you some great free or budget options to explore the city and the rest of Ireland.

The taxi company we partner with offers a very competitive price for getting around the city or to the airport. Car parking is available for €10 a day. Feel free to contact us for further questions. 

We do offer convenient weekly rates for students and workers starting from €130 per week for a bed in a dorm room including free breakfast, free laundry tokens and all types of other services. Contact us for further information.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Garden Lane family! 🙂
