I'm not going to recommend a youth hostel seeing as I've never stayed in
any of the Dublin ones, You'd probably be best off checking out a rough
guide to ireland or a lonely planets guide to get good advice. For
instance heres one thats slap bang in the center of town is
But the vital piece of information that you need to know is that to get
to east point easily you can get a DART (light rail) to clontarf station
and then east point business park has a free bus service to take you the
250 metres from this station into the park itself, hadly for us unfit
engineers. Clontarf is only two stops south (10 to 12 minutes) from Tara
street station which itself pretty much in the center of town.
So I'd recommend that you take a look at
http://www.foundmark.com/Ireland/Dublin/Dublin.jpg and get a good guide
to dublin and cross check hostel locations that are close enough to a
Dublin's small enough once you're in the city center to walk anyplace in
a few minutes. So anyplace city center is likely to suit you.
But If you are coming over to work with a company here I think you
should ask them to get you a place at least for the first week when you
arrive. They know the terrain, and may have employees who are looking for
someone to share a house with to split the costs.
