After the very successful opening of Garden Lane Backpackers in 2016, we are delighted to welcome you to our latest project: Gardiner House. Gardiner House is located within a beautiful, historical building, which still retains a lot of its originality and charm.

Our aim is to make your stay in Dublin as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, making you feel at home, while providing a high quality service at a budget price.

The hostel is located at Upper Gardiner Street, Dublin 1, just minutes from O’Connell St. and only a ten-minute walk from popular hotspots like Grafton Street, Temple Bar, 3 Arena and Croke Park. Its central location means it is close to all major transport links (Busaras and Connolly Station) and within walking distance of many shops, restaurants, bars and clubs. The popular Aircoach and Airlink 747 bus services both have stops within 200m of the property ensuring transport to and from the airport is very convenient.

free coffee & breakfast

We offer comfortable accommodation with an array of room types including private rooms (double & twin), dorms (4, 6, 8 & 12 beds with en-suite options), female only dorms and the Chapel. Here you can enjoy the experience of sleeping in a former church with all its original features including stained glass windows, architecture and holy water stoups.

All rooms have access to free wi-fi with private rooms having the benefit of a flat screen TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Every bed comes with it’s own individual reading light, power and usb sockets and an under-bed locker to secure your valuables. Each floor has multiple bathrooms, which are cleaned four times a day to ensure a high quality standard of cleanliness.

We have a spacious kitchen open 24/7 with everything you need to cook your own meals, including plenty of fridge space and tea/coffee/hot chocolate available at any time. From 7am to 10:30am a free continental breakfast is provided. From the kitchen you can access our private garden, where you can chill and dine al-fresco.

There are many common areas, such as the dining and living room, where you can hang out, meet other travellers, enjoy your meals, play pool, table football, board games, listen to music and have a few drinks. We also have a large TV room, furnished with comfy sofas and beanbag chairs to relax and watch a movie. A laundry room is available to wash, dry and iron your clothes.


Our international staff know the best things to do and see within and around Dublin and will always be happy to offer you practical advice or to share their own experiences. Since we are partnered with several tour companies, we can offer you some free or budget options to explore the city and the rest of Ireland.

Car park is available for €10 a day.

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.

Feel free to contact us for further questions.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Gardiner House Family 🙂
