luggage storage

I'm looking for a place in Dublin to store luggage for a few hours until I can check in to an apartment rental. I thought I had read somewhere that there was an internet cafe that would have such a facility. Somewhere close to Dublin castle area.

1. Re: luggage storage

if you are booking into an apartment, why are you not bringing your luggage with you? that would appear to be the most logical. i dont see any benefit in trying to find a place to store luggage while you check in, only to have to go back and collect it.

as for leaving it in an internet cafe.....dont ! there would be absolutely no guarantee of its safety.

nakagoli;

There are probably dozens of folks every week with the same problem.

Arrive DUB 7am, three bags full, B&B not ready until sometime between 1 and 4pm.

I was told Busaras may have lockers and also the Visitor Centre but have not been able to clarify that.

I was pretty sure that Visitor center on O'Connell and Grafton took it for 24Hrs as well, here is a link you might try

college green is very close to Dublin Castle. Much closer than O'Connell, Grafton Street close as well..

ah, that is clearer. but maybe you should consider leaving luggage at DUB and taking the bus or a taxi over to malahide for a few hours. otherwise, take the bus into busaras (bus station) and leave your luggage there. you can collect it later and take the luas tram to get you close to dublin castle area

A lot of times the apartment rental will let you keep your luggage there until you can check in.

Some of my plans include a couple days away from Dublin, with an accommodation change in the process. On those short jaunts, I can get by with one small bag.

I understand the tourist offices offer storage but I have yet to hear back from them on specifics.

I asked:

--do both locations offer storage?

--is access only during regular business hours?

--do they offer longer than 24 hours storage.

Nor have I been able to confirm busaras bag drop.

An option I have discovered is Ned Kelly’s

Other than being a little out of the way, easy bag access and multi day storage seems doable.

In the general area of Heuston Train Station, and next door to the Aisling Hotel in Dublin 8:

Tipperary House offers Baggage Storage. Hours of business: 8am to 8pm. Costs Euro 5 per bag or suitcase. Per day, I presume.

T4Tim, Ned Kelly's isn't that 'out of the way' as it's very central on O'Connell Street.

Profesor, that is what I thought looking at a map and satellite, but I'll be jiggered if I can find a bus to get there from near Erne Terrace. Looks like about a half hour walk.
