Stylish & Sophisticated
Follow me from the banks of the Liffey over the Ha’penny Bridge and next to the old Jamieson Distillery. If these walls of mine could talk then they’d tell a thousand stories of great stays, fantastic parties and magical adventures. When it comes to hostels in Dublin, let me tell you I’m top. Pay me a visit when you’re in town, you may just want to stay. I am Generator Dublin, and I am much, much, much more than a hostel.
Wi-Fi on the fly
Speedy and free internet is available when you’re using your own device. It’s on offer throughout most of the hostel in Dublin. Internet terminals are also available for a small charge. Capital city surfing anyone?
The Generator Bar in Dublin
A pint of the black stuff in Dublin doesn’t come any better than the way I serve. See you at the Generator bar from 5pm-2am everyday. Although, everyday is probably a bit much.
The adventure starts here, even when your lounging around the hostel in Dublin. Open all day, everyday. Make new friends; meet old friends… pretty much do what you like…. It’s a lounge people.
Breakfasts. Go Full Irish and all Continental
The most important meal of the day, the Generator way. When going continental, eat continental. For a small charge, try the breakfast at the café from 7am to 11am. Add some extra rise and shine to your day.
Dinner is served. See you between 6pm and 9.30pm every evening for what has been described the greatest dining experience of any hostel in the world probably. We also cater for large groups so get your order in now.
Staying up late doesn’t mean you have to wait. Midnight munchies can be catered for through the host of vending machines in the hostel in Dublin. Serving everything you could ever want at 3am (Also munchable at all other times).

Power Shower Rooms in Dublin
Private showers with unbelievable powers are available on every floor, so there’s no excuse for not smelling fresh when staying in a sweet hostel.
Re-Generate 24 Hour Laundry
Looking fantastic is what you’re all about. It’s a 24/7 business. Good job that the laundry room is open for you to wash, dry and iron yourself into a great look 24/7 too then.
24 Hour Reception in Dublin
Help is at hand with the 24-hour reception in the Dublin hostel. There’s always a very helpful person around to let you in, keep you safe, offer directions or best of all tell you the secrets of the Black stuff.
Safe and sound. That’s the best place for your luggage. So we lock it up in a little room (it’s actually bigger than you’d think), where only you can get access to it.
The world is your oyster. From planning your way around Dublin with a walking tour to the next step on your world tour, there’s a lot of help at hand in this little gem of the Generator.

Culture Vulture on a budget?
Dublin can fit your bill! I lived in Dublin for several years, and now visit frequently; I’ve 3 top tips for you. Stay in a hostel with a great location Find the inexpensive- but tasty!- places where locals eat Go to the many free museums & galleries Tip 1- Hostel I know, I know- some people think Dublin hostels are only for 20-somethings visiting for the Guinness, but that just isn’t true! People of all ages use hostels- especially the new breed of hostels like Generator’s, and people of all ages like to immerse themselves in culture- and not just drinking culture. If you’d like to see more on what I thought of Generator’s Dublin hostel, you can read my blog on it here. Tip 2: Eating On my last Dublin visit I ate delicious food, but didn’t break the bank. I had dinner at Boojum in ‘The Italian Quarter’- 2 LUAS stops (at Jervis) from Generator. You can also easily walk to Boojum & save the €1.30 LUAS fee. I had a massive burrito & a sparkling mineral water for under €8. They’ve a nice range of tasty fillings & sauces, and you’ll be full as a tick after! For breakfast I went to Brother Hubbard on Capel Street, about 10 min walk from Generator, or 1 LUAS stop (4 Courts) & a shorter walk. Brother Hubbard is a great little cafe with good coffee, fresh baked goods, a gluten free selection, & wonderful lunch. They plan to do early dinner, too, but hadn’t started as of my visit Jan 2013. You can get a lovely lunch for around €10. 3. Freebies Dublin is full of free museums & galleries! The Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA,) is free, and there is a lovely garden at their site in Kilmainham, too. The National Gallery, The National Museums of Ireland and the RHA gallery are also free. ( Note: I had a very good lunch of tortellini stuffed with pork for €10 at the RHA’s cafe- not your usual bland gallery fare!) There are plenty more free places, too; Visit Dublin has extensive listings. Also check out places like Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar for less expensive theatre or dance performances. I saw a lovely show there, & had a nice glass of wine in their theatre bar as well! One museum that isn’t free, but is well worth a visit, is The Little Museum of Dublin (€5) Do take tour- the interesting & humorous stories bring the fascinating array of items in the museum to life. Everything here was donated by the public- it really is the people’s museum. The Little Museum is special place that you shouldn’t miss if you’d like to get a real feel for Dublin. I found Generator Hostel well located for many places of interest, the LUAS, Dublin bikes, or walking- with the added bonus that the Smithfield area is not nearly so noisy as Temple Bar! Have a great time & enjoy Dublin! This guest post has been written by Susan FitzGerald , who is a keen traveller and has lived a few years in Dublin.
